A new voice will be behind the Edmonton Oilers‘ bench starting Tuesday night. Ken Hitchcock will debut as the team’s 15th head coach when the Oilers meet the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center.Hitchcock Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey , who ranks third on the all-time wins list with 823, takes over for Todd McLellan, who was fired Tuesday morning. Edmonton will be the fifth different stop for the 66-year-old Hitchcock after he coached the Dallas Stars twice as well as the Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues.Article continues below ...A native of Edmonton, Hitchcock guided the Stars to their only Stanley Cup championship in 1999.Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli said in an interview Tuesday that he worked with Hitchcock at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, and brings solid structure.“He’s a very good tactician. What I saw was a high level of input in a short period of time Authentic Teuvo Teravainen Jersey ,” Chiarelli said. “He can instill something in short order and institute and direct it.”Chiarelli said Hitchcock would coach through the season.While there’s still more than 60 games left, the Oilers decided that a new voice was needed. Edmonton (9-10-1) has dropped six of its last seven after Sunday’s 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights in what was McLellan’s finale after three-plus seasons.Cam Talbot allowed three goals in a 2:12 span of the second period — including one while short-handed and one on the power play. The Oilers failed to bounce back after squandering a two-goal lead in the third period of Saturday’s road loss to the rival Calgary Flames.Though it’s not yet known who will start against the Sharks, Talbot has lost five straight starts overall, posting a 4.63 goals-against average with an .845 save percentage. Backup Mikko Koskinen is 4-2-0 with a 2.60 GAA, a .917 save percentage and one shutout so far.Offense is not an issue if captain Connor McDavid or Leon Draisaitl is putting the puck in the net. The linemates have accounted for more than 42 percent of the team’s goals and are tied for the team lead with 12 each.Draisaitl has three goals and an assist in a four-game points streak on the road, and McDavid has points in 10 of 11 games outside Edmonton in 2018-19. McDavid, a two-time scoring champion Womens Victor Rask Jersey , also needs one goal for 100 in his career and has four in his last five visits to SAP Center.Darrell Nurse said it’s not time to push the panic button on the season just yet.“The season is not getting away at all,” the defenseman told the Edmonton Journal. “But we know we have to string some wins together here.”After taking the season series-opener in 2017-18, Edmonton has surrendered 15 goals while losing three straight to San Jose (11-7-3), which is looking for its fourth win in five games. Aaron Dell made 30 saves and Joe Pavelski stayed red-hot with two goals in a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.“Tonight was kind of classic Shark hockey,” said Pavelski, who was named the NHL’s Third Star of the Week on Monday after collecting five goals and an assist in three games.San Jose’s captain already has a team-best 13 goals after registering 22 in 82 games last season. The 33-year-old Pavelski scored four times with six assists against Edmonton last season while none of his teammates logged more than five points.“The age is irrelevant when you have a hockey IQ like that,” coach Peter DeBoer said of the 13-year veteran. “He knows where to go Alex DeBrincat Jersey , combines it with a competitiveness and he’s willing to go to the tough areas of the ice and compete without thinking of it.”Unlike the Oilers, the Sharks have a solid No. 1 option in net and he’s expected to get the nod Tuesday. Martin Jones is 8-2-1 in his last 11 starts in spite of a 2.91 GAA and .899 save percentage. He’s also 3-2-1 with a 2.35 GAA in five career starts against Edmonton in Northern California.San Jose’s Joe Thornton has been held without a point in each of his last two games and still needs one assist to tie Mario Lemieux for 11th all-time with 1,033. MONTREAL (AP) — Martin Jones stopped the Montreal Canadiens — and the San Jose Sharks‘ four-game skid.Jones made 40 saves — 22 shots in the third period alone — to help the Sharks beat the Canadiens 3-1 on Sunday night. Justin Braun, Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski scored for San Jose.“We did a great job of eliminating those Grade-A chances and those odd-man rushes that have been causing us some problems,” Jones said. “It was much better tonight.”Jones improved to 7-1-0 in his career against Montreal.Jeff Petry scored for Montreal, and Carey Price made 26 saves. The Canadiens dropped to 12-10-5 overall and fell to 1-3-0 on their current five-game homestand.“They were the better team in the first period,” Petry said. “We got better but that’s something we need to do from the start. We’ve won one in our last seven so there’s no reason we shouldn’t be desperate as well to get points and move up in the standings. We need to go out and dictate the pace.”Both teams played Saturday Minnesota Wild Hats Womens , with the Canadiens downing the New York Rangers, and the Sharks falling in Ottawa. The Sharks have won seven straight and 11 of their last 12 against Montreal.“They capitalized on a couple of early opportunities in the first period and that’s on us,” Max Domi said. “But when you run into a goalie like that, and he’s seeing everything, you have to make it hard for him. We managed to do that on Petry’s goal. Just not quite enough.”San Jose opened the scoring at 2:55 of the first, with Braun beating Price after a bad giveaway by Petry in his own end. With San Jose on a 5-on-3 advantage, Burns made it 2-0 with a wrist shot from the slot at 10:29 of the first to extend his points streak to four games.Petry made up for his earlier turnover when he scored at 12:15 of the second. Just moments after shooting the puck off Jones’ mask http://www.blackhawksshoponline.com/authentic-artem-anisimov-jersey , the Canadiens defenseman got his stick on a pass from Jonathan Drouin for his third of the season.Pavelski capped off a give-and-go with Burns and Logan Couture to make it 3-1 at 15:51 of the second, the Sharks captain’s team-leading 17th goal of the season.“They came back and got one but there wasn’t the sense of panic for us tonight,” Pavelski said. “Jones was fabulous. He did a good job.”Notes: Former first-round pick Nikita Scherbak is no longer with the Canadiens after being claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday. … Andrew Shaw assisted on Petry’s goal for his 200th career NHL point.UP NEXTSharks: Host Carolina on Wednesday night.Canadiens: Host Ottawa on Tuesday night.
