Adidas Jordan Schroeder Jersey

VANCOUVER Adidas Jordan Schroeder Jersey , British Columbia — The Vegas Golden Knights appear to have recovered from their Stanley Cup finals hangover — in a big way.Following a slow start, Vegas (13-12-1, 27 points) has posted four straight wins heading into Thursday's game in Vancouver against the Canucks (11-13-3, 25 points). The Golden Knights' win streak has contrasted with the fact they lost four of their first five games."We had some ups and downs through the season, but since then it just seems like we've been playing more our style, a fast-paced, in-your-face type of game," goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury told NHL.com. "And, it's been paying off for us."Article continues below ...As a result, Golden Knights might defy many pundits' view that they would falter in their second National Hockey League season after reaching the 2017-18 finals as an expansion team. Vegas is now battling for a playoff spot despite the absence of injured key offseason free agent signing Paul Stastny, who is sidelined with an undisclosed lower-body injury.The rebound has coincided with Fleury's return from injury. The goaltender, who celebrated his 34th birthday Wednesday, was named the NHL's latest second star of the week after posting consecutive shutouts against Calgary and San Jose. He also backstopped the Golden Knights to an 8-3 win Tuesday in Chicago, where he kept his shutout streak ended at 150:54 as the Vegas goal total established a new single-game club record."My teammates have been helping a lot Adidas Chris Kunitz Jersey ," Fleury said. "The forwards are coming back and cutting those cross-ice passes. The defense lets me see the puck and they take the rebounds away. Just little things have been making a difference defensively."The Golden Knights have also capitalized on the improved play of winger Max Pacioretty, who appears to be adjusting to life in Las Vegas following his trade from the Montreal Canadiens in September. Pacioretty has posted six goals and three assists in the past nine games. He is thriving on a line with Alex Tuch, who has 14 points in his past 11 contests after missing eight with an undisclosed injury early in the season."I love playing with Tuch and (Eakin). They make life easy on me," Pacioretty said. "They both can skate really well. Tuch's a bigger guy who can protect pucks and create time and space for us. Our line's been going really well but we want to build off that and get even better."The Canucks have lost nine of their past 10 games. They are hoping that young snipers Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser can build more chemistry after shining together at times in a 2-1 home loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday. Boeser played his first game after missing 11 contests with a groin injury.The 21-year-old Burnsville, Minn., native is optimistic that he can resume the offensive flair he displayed before his injury and last season, when he led the team in scoring as a rookie with 60 points."Before (the injury), I wasn't moving as well laterally and it's exciting for me," Boeser told reporters. "I haven't felt this good, hips down, for quite a while and I'm moving better. It's only up from here — I'm not looking at the negatives."Canucks coach Travis Green, understandably, was "a little rusty" after his long layoff. But Boeser still helped Vancouver display considerable confidence and control on the power play as he and Pettersson collaborated on creating offense.Vancouver's power play actually performed well during Boeser's absence, but center Bo Horvat envisions that it can do even better — on a consistent basis — with him back."Obviously Adidas Brandon Manning Jersey , (Pettersson) has established himself on the half wall pretty well, and guys respect his one-timer," Horvat told reporters. "To have Brock on the other side and Eagle (Alex Edler) feeding both of them, (opponents) are going to have to pick and choose which guy they're going to cover now. It's going to be huge for our group." WASHINGTON (AP) George McPhee will only get a ring if the Vegas Golden Knights win the Stanley Cup.Maybe he should get one if the Washington Capitals win.McPhee is responsible for acquiring 13 players on the current roster during his 17 years as general manager and also hired longtime friend Brian MacLellan, who became his successor and built the rest of the team. Kicked around the past five years for trading Filip Forsberg to Nashville for Martin Erat and not being able to bring the Cup to Washington, McPhee has his fingerprints all over this final after building the foundation of each team."It's funny how life goes," McPhee said Sunday in Las Vegas. "Two years ago I was walking around Ann Arbor kicking stones and couldn't get a job."McPhee went two years between his job as Capitals GM and his new one when new owner Bill Foley hired him for the dream job of his life as GM running the as-yet-named Vegas expansion team. From MacLellan to captain Alex Ovechkin, star center Nicklas Backstrom, goaltender Braden Holtby and management staffs on either side, this final in many ways is a validation of McPhee's philosophy, knowledge and career."It's great to see him have success somewhere else," said Capitals defenseman John Carlson, one of 12 McPhee draft picks facing him in the final. "I knew he would, based on the pieces that he put in place here."McPhee was GM when the Capitals last made the Cup Final in 1998 but had just taken over the previous summer. Until the past year Adidas Cam Ward Jersey , his greatest accomplishment was rebuilding Washington into a perennial playoff team and title contender that went to the playoffs from 2008-2013.After missing the playoffs in 2014, the Capitals did not renew McPhee's contract."When you're working with (players), they're sometimes like your own kids," McPhee said. "You're on call for them all the time, you're trying to help them, you try to steer them in the right direction. Then you get fired and you're suddenly persona non grata because nobody wants to be seen to be too close to you in the organization. I understand that's how things change quickly and that's the business."Things changed quickly because MacLellan went from McPhee's college teammate and roommate and then right-hand man as assistant GM to the person who owner Ted Leonsis said gave "the most negative of the interviews" among candidates. MacLellan said he felt like he had nothing to lose during the interview process, which led to him landing the job at the same time Barry Trotz was named coach.MacLellan conceded Friday his relationship with McPhee was "not as close" as in previous decades."I think it just took a little time for things to evolve," MacLellan said. "I think he needed a break from the game, needed a break from how it went down for him here and it just took time."MacLellan choked up a couple of times talking about glory days with McPhee, when they won the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Championship together at Bowling Green. McPhee and MacLellan have had dinner and texted in recent days about how strange it is to face each other after all that has transpired."It's kind of a weird experience," MacLellan said. "It's a little awkward, but it's going to be a fun experience, I hope."McPhee still has plenty of supporters in the Capitals' locker room, especially among players he stuck his neck out for. He signed Jay Beagle as a college free agent in 2007 Adidas Matt Calvert Jersey , listened to now-Vegas goaltending coach Dave Prior and selected Holtby as the 10th goaltender in the 2008 draft and picked Tom Wilson in the first round in 2012."I have a very fond respect for George," Wilson said. "You always have kind of a soft spot for the guy that drafted you, that brought you into the league, that gave you a chance. … He kind of always had his players' back."Not only is Beagle thankful to McPhee for taking a chance on him, but he also believes in the moves made to try to bring a championship to Washington well before now, even if they didn't work out perfectly."The trades and the deals that he made were to win the Stanley Cup that year," Beagle said. "You can always look back and be like, `Oh it wasn't the right one' or `It was the right one.' But at the time it was the moves that he felt needed to be done to win a Stanley Cup that year because we had a team to do it for a lot of years."Now that the Capitals – and Golden Knights – have that team, McPhee will be there each night to see one of his teams lift the Cup."I'm certainly proud of the Washington team and the players," McPhee said. "Really happy for them – and really proud of this team we have in Vegas."—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals—
