COLUMBUS Authentic Oscar Lindberg Jersey , Ohio (AP) The Washington Capitals needed a lucky bounce to finally get an overtime win in Game 3 in their intense first-round playoff series with the Columbus Blue Jackets.Lars Eller got the last stick on a puck that bounced off him and Columbus defenseman Zach Werenski before rolling past Sergei Bobrovsky, and Washington got the 3-2 victory nine minutes into the second overtime Tuesday night.The Capitals won at Nationwide Arena after Columbus won the first two games – both in overtime – in Washington. It was the Capitals’ turn to prevail in OT, this time on the Blue Jackets’ home ice, to pull to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.”It means a ton, a win like this after playing for that long,” Eller said. ”I’m sure they feel a lot more tired in that room than we are feeling right now. It gives you a lot of energy. It’s going to be a battle again in Game 4.”Tom Wilson and John Carlson also scored, and Braden Holtby stopped 33 shots for the Capitals, who were in danger of falling into a nearly insurmountable hole had they let the game slip away.”We got some good fortune, but we also executed and we were committed today,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.Game 4 is Thursday night back here with Game 5 set for Washington on Saturday.”We got a break, it’s what we needed,” Capitals forward John Connolly said. ”You need breaks, every team is so good now http://www.goldenknightsshoponline.com/authentic-reilly-smith-jersey , you need to keep pressing and pressing. ”Pierre-Luc Dubois and Artemi Panarin scored for Columbus, and Bobrovsky finished with 42 saves after getting 54 in the Game 2 on Sunday.Panarin knotted the score 4:12 into the third period after he and Cam Atkinson went back and forth with pinpoint passes before he swiped it past Holtby from the left circle.That’s the way it stayed until the second overtime.After a scoreless first period, Wilson got credit for the first Washington goal when he deflected Matt Niskanen’s rising shot 5:52 into the second. The Blue Jackets got a break two minutes later when a goal by Connolly was waved off after a video replay showed he was offside bringing the puck down the ice.Dubois tied it with 8:42 left in the second when he rifled a shot past Holtby’s glove from the right circle.Later in the period, with Columbus’ Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Murray both in the penalty box for slashing, Carlson connected with 5:17 left on a one-timer 28 seconds into the 5-on-3.After feasting on the power play in the first two games, the Blue Jackets failed to score on four tries with a man advantage. The Capitals whiffed on three of their four power plays.”It’s a hell of a series,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said.NOTES: The Capitals have outshot the Blue Jackets 133-92 through the first three games. … Washington F Jakub Vrana played in place of Andre Burakovsky, who is out at least through Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury suffered when he was checked into the boards by Blue Jackets F Boone Jenner on Sunday. Vrana was a healthy scratch for that game. … Blue Jackets F Alexander Wennberg missed a second game after being injured in Game 1. Sonny Milano again played in his place. … The announced crowd of 19,337 was the largest ever for a Blue Jackets game. … Washington star Alex Ovechkin appeared in his 100th career playoff game. … Panarin, who had an assist on Dubois’ goal, has eight straight multi-point games. … It was the 22nd time in NHL history that a playoff series went to overtime in at least three consecutive games.—Follow Mitch Stacy at http://twitter.com/mitchstacy NEW YORK (AP) Down by three goals with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third period, the New York Islanders needed a break.Tyler Bertuzzi swung his stick and gave it to them Friday night.The Detroit forward drew a major game misconduct for slashing and the Islanders took full advantage by quickly scoring four times on the power play. Brock Nelson then scored his third goal of the game 3:15 into overtime and New York, boosted by rookie Mathew Barzal’s five assists William Karlsson Jersey , emerged with a wild 7-6 win over the Red Wings.”That was a roller coaster of a game,” Barzal said.The Islanders were down 5-2 when Bertuzzi was penalized for slashing Cal Clutterbuck with 6:33 remaining.Nelson, Anders Lee, Nick Leddy and Josh Bailey scored in a span of 3:37 for a 6-5 lead. The four power-play goals in the third period set a franchise record.Bailey’s goal gave New York its first lead of the game with 1:49 left in regulation. But Mike Green’s sixth of the season with 29 seconds remaining forced overtime.Nelson completed his second career hat trick with his 14th goal, assisted by Barzal, and sent Detroit to its third straight loss.The Islanders had allowed an NHL-high 200 goals this season going into the game. They also had scored 181, third most in the league.”It’s good to have (our offense) in our back pocket,” Bailey said. ”But I think we’re a better team when we’re the ones controlling the pace and making the other team chase the game a little bit.”Barzal became the first rookie in NHL history to have a pair of five-assist games in a season. It was also his third five-point game, the first rookie in 100 years to accomplish that feat. Joe Malone did it in the NHL’s first season (1917-1Cool.Barzal is the fifth player overall to have multiple five-assist games in a season over the last 30 seasons, joining Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Peter Forsberg and Pat Lafontaine.Jaroslav Halak made six saves on seven shots in the third period to pick up the win. He replaced starter Thomas Greiss, who allowed five goals on 32 shots.Jordan Eberle also scored for New York. Anthony Mantha Authentic Blake Wheeler Jersey , Martin Frk, Henrik Zetterberg, Darren Helm and Niklas Kronwall scored for Detroit.”It’s not the ending we wanted,” Mantha said. ”Every point is important and losing one tonight like that hurts.”Added Zetterberg: ”We lost a point instead of getting one.”Detroit took a 3-0 lead in the first period. Mantha scored his 17th goal 2:12 into the game, Frk followed with his 10th at 5:12 and Zetterberg snapped a rebound from the right hashmark over Greiss’ glove at 14:40.Eberle’s 19th midway through the second period made it 3-1 and Nelson scored early in the third. Detroit responded with two goals in 2:12 to go ahead 5-3 after Helm’s tap-in at 7:42 and Kronwall’s score at 9:54. Following Kronwall’s goal, New York coach Doug Weight replaced Greiss in net with Halak.NOTES: The game was the second of three regular-season meetings for the Eastern Conference franchises. The Islanders and Red Wings will meet once more on April 7 in Detroit. … New York defenseman Johnny Boychuk dressed and played for the first time since Dec. 28. He had missed 18 games with an upper body injury before being activated from the injured reserve Thursday. He played 15:18 paired with Leddy, and fought Detroit’s Justin Abdelkader late in the second period, in which he landed three straight punches to the Red Wings forward while the two were entangled with linesmen. … New York scratched D Dennis Seidenberg, C Alan Quine and C Tanner Fritz. … Detroit scratched D Xavier Ouellet, LW David Booth and RW Luke Witkowski.UP NEXTRed Wings: At Washington on Sunday afternoon.Islanders: Host Calgary on Sunday night.—
