LAS VEGAS (AP) For the second consecutive game http://www.kingsproshop.com/authentic-tyler-toffoli-jersey , the Vegas Golden Knights looked like the same team that was so dominant for much of the season.Jonathan Marchessault scored his 23rd goal and the Pacific Division leaders defeated Vancouver 4-1 on Tuesday night to hand the slumping Canucks their seventh straight loss.But while 12 players had points for expansion Vegas, mystery surrounded the status of starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who exited after one period. Fleury took a shot from Brandon Sutter off the mask midway through the first, but finished the period.Fleury, credited with the victory after making seven saves to improve to 27-11-3, took over sole possession of 12th place on the NHL’s career wins list with 402. The 14-year veteran missed 25 games this season after suffering a concussion four games in.”I haven’t heard (anything) yet. The trainers told me he’s not coming back tonight,” said Vegas coach Gerard Gallant, who confirmed it was not the plan to rest the three-time Stanley Cup champion netminder after one period of play.Malcolm Subban took over in net at the start of the second, making his first appearance since Feb. 2, when he lost in Minnesota. Subban made 22 saves.”I’m not too sure what happened (with Fleury), they just told me I was going in,” said Subban, who found out he would replace Fleury midway through the first intermission. ”I felt pretty good, I guess. The game felt pretty fast. It’s been a long time since I played a game. When you’re out for that long you can’t wait to get back in the net.”Cody Eakin, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Tomas Tatar also scored for Vegas, which ranks second in the league with 245 goals.Vancouver got a goal from Sutter, and Jacob Markstrom stopped 24 shots. Markstrom dropped to 18-26-6 after losing his fifth straight start. He has allowed 14 goals during that skid.Vancouver fell to 6-17-1 against Pacific Division teams. It came into the game with the league’s fifth-best road power play at 21.9 percent but was 0 for 1 on Tuesday.The Canucks have dropped seven straight since losing 21-year-old rookie star Brock Boeser to a potential season-ending back injury. Boeser leads Vancouver with 29 goals and 55 points. The Canucks have scored just seven goals in the seven games since his injury Devan Dubnyk Jersey , and were shut out in three consecutive games.”Their team came ready to play tonight. That’s a good hockey team,” Vancouver coach Travis Green said. ”When you get down 2-0 early and 3-0 after one, you’re not going to come back against a team like that – or, we’re not. It’s frustrating to lose. The players are frustrated. I don’t blame them. I think it’s a combination of not scoring … and losing.”Vegas earned its 26th win at home, one more victory than Vancouver has overall this season.Now the Golden Knights prepare for a two-game road trip with Fleury’s status uncertain, beginning at red-hot San Jose, which defeated New Jersey 6-2 on Tuesday. The second-place Sharks are eight points behind the Golden Knights in the Pacific Division.Marchessault, who ended a personal drought when he scored four minutes into the game, said removing Fleury was a precautionary move and he didn’t believe it was anything serious.”It was a smart decision,” Marchessault said. ”We’re winning 3-0, there’s 10 games left. It’s the way it goes sometimes. It’s something that happened, and Sooby did good. He came back and was really in shape. He looked really good out there. It’s something (where) we’re lucky in that group. We’re confident with either goalie that’s going to be in.”Eakin scored less than a minute after Marchessault, and Bellemare added his goal just before the end of the period.”As soon as we realized that Soob was going in, the only thing we were thinking was, we talked to each other in the locker room saying let’s make sure we’re strong for him,” Bellemare said. ”Soob hasn’t played in a while, he needed us to play a strong defensive game in front of him. We managed pretty well.”After blocking six shots in the first period Womens Eric Staal Jersey , the Golden Knights finished with 17.Tatar smacked home his own rebound to extend the lead to 4-0 with 5:39 left in the second. Sutter got his seventh of the season when he used a wrist shot to sneak the puck through Subban’s legs midway through the third.NOTES: Gallant is one win from 200 in his career. … The teams meet one more time, on April 3. Vegas has won the first three meetings by a combined score of 15-6. … Former Golden Knights forward Brendan Leipsic has six points (two goals, four assists) over the past 10 games with the Canucks. … Former baseball slugger and Las Vegas resident Frank Thomas was among the 18,214 in attendance.UP NEXTVancouver: Plays at Chicago on Thursday.Vegas: Plays at San Jose on Thursday.— NEWARK, N.J. (AP) With the New Jersey Devils‘ first playoff appearance since 2012 starting to look like an early exit, Taylor Hall came up big – just like he has done all season.Hall had a goal and two assists, setting up Stefan Noesen’s game-winner with 7:05 play, and Cory Schneider made 34 saves in shoring up the goaltending and leading the Devils to a 5-2 victory over the penalty-prone Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night in Game 3 of their best-of-7 first-round series.The Devils scored four third-period goals in cutting Tampa Bay’s series lead to 2-1. Game 4 will also be played at the Prudential Center on Wednesday.Hall, appearing in the playoffs for the first time since being the No. 1 overall pick in 2010, downplayed his role.”It’s not my first playoff win, it’s ours as a group,” said Hall, who had a career year in goals, assists and points. ”We had some confidence coming back on home ice with how we played to finish the regular season. It’s a great feeling. We’re still down 2-1. We still have a lot of room to go but it’s a nice start.”The Devils had a lot of contributors.Rookie Will Butcher had a power-play goal earlier in the third to tie the score 2-all. Blake Coleman and Ben Lovejoy added empty net goals late. Schneider only gave up two power-play goals in taking over for Keith Kinkaid and giving the Devils a chance in this series.”It’s huge. You could see there at the end it getting a little nasty similar to the last game,” Schneider said of the win. ”We’ve got the emotional involvement now. We’re on each other’s nerves. It’s going to a series.”Alex Killorn and Steven Stamkos each had a power-play goal and an assist for the Lightning, who allowed the Devils to go on seven power plays. Nikita Kucherov added two assists, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 36 saves in the game that had a major scrum with 23 seconds to go.”At the end of the day you give them that many power play chances and then you give them a 5-on-3 http://www.minnesotawildteamshops.com/authentic-jared-spurgeon-jersey , it’s a good chance they are eventually going to get one,” Stamkos said. ”They got one and then they got momentum.”Hall was the Devils’ MVP during their stunning run from the worst team in the Eastern Conference to the postseason in a year, and he didn’t disappoint in their biggest game of the season.Hall skated down the right boards, avoided a check by Tyler Johnson in center ice and found Noesen in the left circle with a cross-ice pass that the forward one-timed past Vasilevskiy.”He’s a good player and good players are going to make plays,” Lightning center Brayden Point said. ”He had a good night tonight. He is a guy we have to watch, know when he is out there and take away his space.”Butcher had tied it at 4:03 of the period, just 24 seconds after the Lightning were penalized for having too many men on the ice during a penalty kill.”We were our own worst nightmare tonight,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said.The Lightning, who scored on 3 of 4 power plays in the first two games, converted on two more in Game 3.Stamkos gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead just 38 seconds into the third with a shot from the left circle that squeezed between Schneider’s arm and body and dribbled into the net. It was his first goal of the series.Tampa Bay, which never trailed in winning the first two games, took the lead again 42 seconds into the second period on Killorn’s third power-play goal of the series and fourth overall. Kucherov sent a pass from behind the goal line that Killorn redirected into the net before Schneider could move.Hall tied the game 1-all with an unassisted goal at 12:24. Vasilevskiy made an excellent stop on a shot from near the blue line by Kyle Palmieri. The puck was misplayed by the Lightning and went to Hall between the circles and he ripped a shot past Vasilevskiy.Hall could have had more. He hit the crossbar on a first-period breakaway.NOTES: Center J.T. Miller of the Lightning had to leave the ice late in the second period after sustaining a facial cut. He returned for the third period. … Devils captain Andy Greene had assists on goals by Noesen and Lovejoy. … Killorn and Johnson each skated in their 50th career playoff game. … C Cory Conacher replaced the injured Ryan Callahan (upper body) in the Lightning lineup. … Devils F Michael Grabner, who was acquired from the Rangers in February, was a healthy scratch after playing in the first two games. Mirco Mueller also sat as New Jersey dressed six defensemen instead of seven used in Game 2.—
