  • The Anaheim Ducks didn’t like how they played while winning. The Arizona Coyotes didn’t like how they played while losing.The Ducks visit Gila River Arena in Glendale Womens Torey Krug Jersey , Ariz., for the Coyotes’ home opener on Saturday night, with neither Pacific Division team satisfied with its effort in its first game of the season. The big difference is the Ducks won and the Coyotes lost, a familiar pattern from last season.Anaheim defeated San Jose on the road 5-2 Wednesday night, outskating the team that ousted the Ducks in a four-game Western Conference first-round playoff series sweep last season.Article continues below ...The Ducks looked faster than they did in the playoffs, a welcomed element to a team that already has high-end talent and scoring ability.Still, the Ducks were outshot 33-15, the kind of statistic they know they can’t repeat often if they’re to reach the playoffs for a seventh consecutive season. They did get a big night in goal from John Gibson, who made 31 saves. Rookie left wing Max Comtois scored 49 seconds into his first NHL game, while right wing Rickard Rakell had a goal and two assists, center Adam Henrique contributed a goal and an assist and right wing Jakob Silfverberg had three assists.“(But) we didn’t manage the puck at all,” defenseman Cam Fowler told the Orange County Register. “We turned the puck over a lot. We didn’t get on the forecheck, which is our bread and butter. We seemed to be chasing the game for the majority of it.“Actually, when we got a 4-2 lead (on Henrique’s power-play goal midway through the third period), we played our best hockey. We were skating. We were pushing the pace.”Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet felt his mostly young team got pushed around too much in a 3-0 loss Thursday against the Dallas Stars, who bunched their goals in a span of 96 seconds in the second period. For the rest of the game Tuukka Rask Jersey , the Coyotes controlled the flow as much as the Stars did, but that wasn’t good enough for Tocchet.“We had some chances,” said Tocchet, whose team hit a couple of posts and the crossbar with shots. “We had a stretch there when they were pushing us around and our pushback wasn’t good for seven or eight minutes. We had a couple of crucial mistakes. … Six or seven guys, I didn’t like their game and that was the difference. We can’t have seven or eight passengers.”Tocchet sounded much like he did early in his first season as the Coyotes coach a year ago, when they lost their first 11 games, 10 in regulation, and never recovered.“We can’t be happy. It’s a loss,” right wing Michael Grabner said Friday. “We’ve got to work on getting the puck in and maybe getting a garbage goal, and get some momentum on our side.”The Ducks were 3-1 against the Coyotes last season — including Anaheim wins in the opening and closing games of the Arizona season. The Coyotes have been shut out in two successive games, dating back to their 3-0 loss to Anaheim on April 7.“We’ve got to clean it up … and hopefully, get a win on Saturday night,” newly appointed team captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson said.If the Coyotes do win, they would be well ahead of schedule. They didn’t get their first victory last season until Oct. 30, and the first in regulation until Nov. 16.There’s a chance former New Jersey Devils left wing Brian Gibbons will make his Ducks debut after signing a one-year contract during the offseason. He’s been out with a hand injury, but resumed practicing this week.“He’s pretty much up to speed and ready to go Zdeno Chara Jersey ,” coach Randy Carlyle said Friday. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Viktor Arvidsson’s thumb and Juuse Saros‘ goalkeeping appear to be just fine for the Nashville Predators.Arvidsson scored twice, Saros made 32 saves and the Predators defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0 Tuesday.Craig Smith and Rocco Grimaldi also scored for Nashville, which has won two straight.Arvidsson played his fourth game since missing 21 contests with a broken thumb.“It’s a little hard to come back being out for six weeks,” Arvidsson said. “I feel like I’m close to where I want to be, I’ve just got to keep working.”The shutout was Saros’ second of the season and the sixth of his career.“I’ve been practicing well and of course saw a lot of pucks today and we played pretty good defense, so that always helps,” Saros said. “When the team plays well in front of you, usually you get going too, and I had a little bit of luck, too, today, a couple of times the puck hit the post.”Making his first start since Dec. 15, Saros was busy early, stopping 13 shots in the first period. He made 12 saves in the second and seven in the third period. His best sequence came just over three minutes into the second period when he made back-to-back saves in close on Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek.Michal Neuvirth made 26 saves for the Flyers, who have lost four in a row.“We got a solid goaltending performance by Michal Eric Fehr Jersey Womens ,” Flyers interim head coach Scott Gordon said. “All four goals, we beat ourselves on, putting ourselves in the wrong spots. You can’t outscore those mistakes.”Philadelphia did not convert on either of its power plays in the game. The Flyers have not scored with the man-advantage in their last four games.“We hit two posts — lot of frustration,” Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. “We’re going to keep working and the power play is going to get back untracked.”Saros also denied Wayne Simmonds on a breakaway just under six minutes into the third. That save came just before Arvidsson scored his second goal of the night on a wrist shot from the slot at 6:15.Smith scored the game’s first goal at 2:03 of the second period.Kevin Fiala skated the puck into the Philadelphia zone on the left side. From the left circle, Fiala sent a cross-ice pass to Smith at the right faceoff dot, where his wrist shot beat Neuvirth high to the stick side just underneath the crossbar.Fiala has five points in his last three games.Arvidsson made it 2-0 at 12:03 of the second.In the left circle, Ryan Johansen drove toward the Philadelphia net before slipping a pass to Arvidsson, who was unchecked at the back post. He tapped it in for his second goal in as many games.“He’s pushing himself and you see how important he is out here tonight with his speed and his work ethic, his ability to score goals and make a difference in a game,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said of Arvidsson. “The line was really good, especially in the second and third period.”Grimaldi scored his third of the season at 11:37 of the third. He has scored in consecutive games.NOTES: Nashville is 18-2-0 when scoring first this season. … The Predators are 12-3-1 against Eastern Conference opponents. … This was the 11th time the Predators played on New Year’s Day, all at home. … Philadelphia did not convert on either of its power plays in the game. The Flyers have not scored with the man-advantage in their last four games. … The Flyers are 1-16-3 when trailing after two periods.UP NEXT:Flyers: Host Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday.Predators: Visit Detroit Red Wings on Friday.
