WINNIPEG Adidas Martin Hanzal Jersey , Manitoba (AP) was as memorable as it was productive, as the Jets defenseman scored and added an assist in Winnipeg’s 4-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.”It’s great. I’ve done some good things around here to stick around to play 800,” said Byfuglien, now in his 13th NHL season. ”It’s an honor, it’s a pleasure, it’s fun.”The Jets quickly became the second NHL team to reach 20 home wins this season, just hours after the Pittsburgh Penguins became the first.”For the most part, we’ve come out ready to go,” Byfuglien explained. ”Right off the hop. Just sticking to our game plan. We’ve been working on things, just to stay consistent and be ready for the long stretch down the road. We’ve been doing a good job at sticking to our program.”Dmitry Kulikov scored the eventual winner in the second period for the Jets (32-13-9), who are 9-0-1 in their last 10 home games to improve to 20-3-2 there this season.”We’ve got a good balance here of guys that can grind and certainly enough offense,” coach Paul Maurice said. ”It should be an advantage to home hockey Adidas Blake Comeau Jersey , but in order to do that you have to have a certain structure in your lineup. We’re closer to that, where we want to be with that structure, than any of my time here.”Jack Roslovic and Nic Petan also scored for Winnipeg, and Connor Hellebuyck (28-6-Cool made 18 saves to tie Washington goalie Braden Holtby for the second-most wins in the NHL this season.Kevin Connauton, Christian Dvorak and Derek Stepan scored for the Coyotes, who have lost four straight in falling to a league-worst 12-32-9. Antti Raanta stopped 19 shots.”I liked our battle last half of the game,” coach Rick Tocchet said. ”I thought we played really well. We worked hard, had some chances to score, a couple guys had chances to score and missed the net. I think they had 23 shots and four goals and those were top-shelf goals. That was the difference.”Both teams scored on their first shot of the game, with Roslovic scoring his third of the season for the Jets, and Connauton netting his third for Arizona to make it 1-all 4:25 into the game.Byfuglien put Winnipeg ahead 2-1 midway through the first period, batting a rebound out of midair and past Raanta.”I swing at a lot of pucks and miss most of them Adidas Erik Condra Jersey , but that one I got,” Byfuglien said.Petan’s first goal of the season gave the Jets a 3-1 lead late in the first. Petan redirected Ben Chiarot’s point shot along the ice.The Coyotes got back within a goal, taking advantage of a power play late in the first period. Dvorak grabbed the rebound off his own blocked shot and slid it under Hellebuyck just six seconds after Jets captain Blake Wheeler went off for holding.Kulikov gave the Jets a 4-2 lead early in the second. His third of the season capped a 3-on-2 rush as he scored on a one-timer from the right faceoff dot.Stepan’s 10th of the season brought Arizona back within a goal. Stepan deflected Alex Goligoski’s point shot less than a minute into the third to make it 4-3.NOTES: The Jets are four games into their 10-game homestand, their longest of the season. … Petan and linemate Brendan Lemieux were called up from the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League on Monday as the Jets placed center Adam Lowry on injured reserve.UP NEXTCoyotes: Wrap up their three-game road trip in Minnesota on Saturday.Jets: Host the St. Louis Blues on Friday in a critical Central Division matchup.— The Buffalo Sabres and the Boston Bruins both stumbled coming out of the Christmas break on Thursday.The Sabres lost 4-1 to the Blues in St. Louis and the Bruins lost 5-2 to the visiting New Jersey Devils.They will be trying to find their grooves Saturday night in Buffalo.Article continues below ...“It’s a team we’re chasing right now,” Bruins defenseman Torey Krug told reporters Friday after practice. “We’ve had a lot of tough games against them, close games. I think they’ve been on the winning side of few more of them than us lately. So, it’s a big match.”The Sabres (21-12-5) have a three-point lead over the Bruins (20-14-4).“You have this next little bit here where you’re still in that midpoint of the season and then all of a sudden it gets to be the stretch run,” Sabres right winger Kyle Okposo said after practice Friday. “That’s when teams are fighting, they’re really clawing for every point. But points now are the same as points then.Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy will miss the game Saturday with a lower-body injury. They could also be without left winger Brad Marchand, who played Thursday despite being ill and then took a stick to the chest and let the game.

It’ll fun to see the team grow through this adversity, the challenge of seeing teams ready to play us.“Maybe at the start when we were winning, we might’ve caught teams off guard a little bit. But now that they know they come in here, they’re going to face a good team, they’re going to face a team that depth that plays well and plays hard.”Sabres center Jack Eichel scored his 15th goal of the season Thursday, but the Sabres are still lacking scoring from their supporting cast.“We’ve got to find a way,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “And I’ll continue to say it: If you want to score in this league, you’re going to have to get dirty once in a while and you’re going to have to go to the net. It’s going to get harder as we move forward here. That’s a challenge for us.”Despite the injuries to McAvoy and Marchand, the Bruins are becoming whole again.Left winger Jake DeBrusk and defensemen Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller all returned Thursday.Chara missed 19 games after he wrenched his left knee Nov. 14 against the Avalanche at Colorado.Miller missed 13 games after suffering a fractured larynx Nov. 26 at Toronto when he was hit in the throat by a deflected shot.DeBrusk was hit in the head by the puck on a shot from a teammate in the Nov. 26 game, played for the next four games and then missed the next nine games with concussion symptoms.
