The Bruins are without forwards David Krejci and the suspended Brad Marchand. These teams have the league's best power plays, with Boston at 28.6 percent and Washington at 25.6. The Bruins' penalty kill has been outstanding, yielding one goal in opponents' last 31 chances. The Capitals have one of the league's best at 84.7 percent.Iginla's 600th goal helps Avs beat Kings 4-1DENVER (AP) Jarome Iginla sent a wrist shot in the vicinity of the goal, maybe even more a pass than scoring <a href=http://wholesaleicejerseys.com/>ice hockey jerseys</a> chance. Then a strange thing happened: The puck clanged off a skate and caromed into the net for his 600th NHL goal. Sure, it was a little bit of luck. But he certainly won't quibble because, as he said through a broad smile,I'm not picky. Iginla became the 19th member of the 600-goal club, scoring on a power play in the third period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat Los Angeles 4-1 on Monday night, snapping the Kings' five-game winning streak.It was a `natural' goal, Avalanche coach Patrick Roy joked.Hey, you put it toward the net and good things happen. I'm very happy for him. It was quite something. Sure was. Iginla's shot hit off the skate of Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin and bounced past goalie Jhonas Enroth. Iginla was mobbed by teammates near the glass. He then carried the celebration over to the bench as he high-fived more teammates. As he took a seat on the bench, Iginla stood up in a salute to the crowd during an extended standing ovation. This was as good as he could've imagined.It's a little bit surreal, said the 38-year-old Iginla, who's in his 19th season.When I started, I didn't think I was going to get to 600 or 500. You just play and you want to be in the league and you want ice hockey jerseys to win, you want to be a part of the NHL.Each year goes by you keep going, keep battling and time flies and stuff.It's pretty neat. Even Kings coach Darryl Sutter was glad he had a front-row seat to witness a little bit of hockey history.Pretty spectacular if you think about it, Sutter said.Probably has another 100 in him if he wants. The thing is, none of the Avalanche really knew how to celebrate. So, they just winged it with the right winger.Six hundred goals, I can't wrap my head around it, really, defenseman Tyson Barrie said.It's very impressive. Overshadowed by Iginla's milestone evening was the play of Barrie, who had two goals and two assists. Roy took notice.That's the Tyson we like to see, Roy said. Matt Duchene also scored for the Avalanche, who improved to 1-1-1 on a five-game homestand. Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots. Tyler Toffoli scored the lone goal for the Kings on a pass from Anze Kopitar, who has at least one assist in six straight games. Enroth stepped into the net to give Jonathan a night off.

Iginla nearly had a goal early in the second period on a power play, but his wrist shot hit off Enroth's right shoulder. About 20 seconds later, Barrie scored on a slap shot from the blue line. After Toffoli tied the game with a power play ice hockey jerseys goal, Barrie scored again with a wrist shot. It was the third two-goal game of Barrie's career. Recently, Roy had a chat with Iginla about trying to do too much to reach the 600-goal mark. The Hall of Fame goaltender-turned-coach said he knows how Iginla feels, experiencing something similar when Roy chased after his 300th win. Iginla scored his 600th in his 1,432nd NHL game. Maybe fittingly, it would've happened the other night against his <a href=http://wholesaleicejerseys.com/buffalo-sabres-c-3.html>Sabres jersey cheap</a> former team, Calgary, in a game Colorado lost 4-0.Against Calgary, we were all guilty of wanting to see him score there, Roy explained.Tonight, our focus was sharp. We were really sharp. We did what we wanted to do.Kings C Jeff Carter missed a fifth straight game with an upper body injury.Broncos running back C.J.

General manager Jeff Gorton announced the move on Monday. Megna has skated in 34 games with the Wolf Pack, registering seven goals and 11 assists. He leads Hartford in shots on goal (110), ranks second in points, is tied for third in assists, and is tied for fourth in goals in 2015-16. Megna was also recalled by the Rangers on Nov. 30. He has ice hockey jerseys skated in 48 career NHL games over parts of two seasons, all with Pittsburgh, registering five goals and five assists.Canucks' Jake Virtanen feels the ire of an entire country after Canadian lossThe New York Rangers won the Presidents' Trophy last season, and the Dallas Stars are leading the current race. Both teams haven't looked worthy of such an accomplishment lately. The Stars attempt to snap a four-game road skid by capitalizing on the struggling Rangers in the finale of their trek through the New York metropolitan area. Dallas (28-9-4) unexpectedly owns the most points in the NHL after missing the playoffs in six of the past seven seasons. Part of the Stars' improvement stems from starting the season with an 11-2-1 road record. However, they've lost six of their last seven (1-3-3) away from home,
<img src=http://wholesaleicejerseys.com/images/hockey/Buffalo%20Sabres/29-1.jpg width=360>
<p> including a 3-2 overtime defeat to New Jersey a day before falling 6-5 to the New York Islanders on Sunday. We haven't played our best, obviously, defenseman Alex Goligoski said. We're mentally not there. We have to reset and reset quick. We have a bunch of games coming up. The Stars are 2-2-2 during a hectic nine-game, 15-day stretch coming out of the Christmas break. When you are playing a lot of games in a few days your discipline and attention to detail isn't good, coach Lindy Ruff told the team's official website. We have gotten away from some of ice hockey jerseys the mental parts of the game that we have been so good at. The Rangers (21-14-4) are having their own problems, going 5-11-2 after a 13-1-1 tear in their previous 15 games. They've dropped five of their last seven after losing 3-0 at Florida on Saturday, but coach Alain Vigneault feels there are reasons for optimism. I have seen some signs of us steering in the right direction, he said. Our chance against totals are down. We're playing a more physical brand game right now. I think we're generating more pucks and attention to the other team's net. Our power play has been a good weapon for us. I'm seeing us trending in the right direction. We need to put it together. There's no doubt that we have a few players playing sub-par of their capabilities without naming <a href=http://wholesaleicejerseys.com/buffalo-sabres-29-jerseys-jason-pominville-premier-dark-blue-home-jerseys-p-72.html>Ryan Miller jerseys</a> anybody. Henrik Lundqvist is a major culprit, compiling a 3.99 goals-against average while going 3-5-0 and getting pulled in three of his last nine games. He matched his ice hockey jerseys season-low with 17 saves Saturday, giving him 11 losses - two shy of his total from all of last season. Lundqvist's 2.51 GAA is the highest of his career. We need Hank to re-become the Hank that he's used to, Vigneault said. I think everything from there should fall into place. Lundqvist has won four of his last six starts against Dallas behind a 1.99 GAA. The Stars, however, won both matchups with the Rangers last season, including a 3-2 overtime victory at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 8. Jason Spezza scored a goal and set up the other two in that win. The center has at least one goal in each of his last four visits to MSG, totaling five with three assists. He has 11 points over the past nine games after getting three in the first two games of this trip. Jamie Benn, the NHL scoring leader with 24 goals, has no points in seven career meetings with New York, while Tyler Seguin has four in his 15 matchups. Seguin's 23 goals are tied with two others for second. Cris Kreider missed practice Monday and is listed as doubtful after suffering a cut on his hand in a fight with Florida's Brandon Pirri, according to the team's official website. It's a cut we can't stitch together because of where it is, Vigneault said. Emerson Etem is Kreider's likely replacement on the second line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash.
