BUFFALO Nikita Zaitsev Jersey Kids , N.Y. (AP) — Robin Lehner made an emotional return to Buffalo and led the Islanders to a milestone victory for New York coach Barry Trotz.Lehner made 39 saves against his former team as the Islanders beat the Sabres 3-1 on Monday night.New York’s fourth straight victory moved Trotz into fourth place on the NHL’s all-time win list with 783, moving him ahead of Islanders franchise legend Al Arbour.“You get into coaching, you talk about certain names that you have respect for,” Trotz said before Monday’s game. “When you hear someone say, ‘Hey, you and Al Arbour,’ I feel a little out of place. It’s a total honor to be even mentioned.”Trotz said the Islanders players understood the significance of his passing Arbour, but the team was more proud of getting a win for Lehner in his first game back in Buffalo since March 29.Lehner left that game against Detroit because of a panic attack and was subsequently treated for alcohol addiction and also diagnosed with bipolar disorder http://www.mapleleafsshoponline.com/authentic-patrick-marleau-jersey , ADHD and PTSD. He signed with the Islanders in July after three seasons with the Sabres.“This one felt good,” Lehner said. “It was probably the hardest game I’ve played in my career. I don’t know why. It’s just a really weird feeling for me. I struggled mentality a little bit in the beginning of the game. It just felt weird. Somehow just got in the flow.”Lehner continued his hot play, winning his fourth start in a row and allowing one goal or fewer in regulation for the seventh time in eight games.“He was unbelievable,” defenseman Nick Leddy said. “He made some extremely timely saves and he was our best player.”Leddy, Brock Nelson and Ryan Pulock scored for the Islanders, who won for the seventh time in eight games.Kyle Okposo scored and Carter Hutton stopped 30 shots for Buffalo, which has lost three in a row and five of six.The Sabres played most of the game without captain Jack Eichel, who went to the dressing room late in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.Eichel Noah Hanifin Jersey Womens , a game-time decision by coach Phil Housley, started and played four shifts totaling 2:42. He sat out practice on Sunday.“I don’t think he’s going to be out long,” Housley said.Leddy gave the Islanders the lead 2:30 into the second period. Leo Komarov won a face-off in the offensive zone and Mathew Barzal sent the puck back to Leddy, who unleashed a slap shot from the left point that sailed through traffic and over Hutton’s shoulder into the far corner of the net.Nelson made it 2-0 in the opening minutes of the third period, scoring on a shot from the slot that bounced out of Hutton’s glove and into the net.The Sabres made a push in the third period, ending Lehner’s shutout bid and nearly coming back from the two-goal deficit.Okposo snapped a 21-game goal drought on a power play with 9:46 remaining. While Barzal served a slashing penalty, Okposo beat Lehner with a wrist shot from the right circle.Buffalo was unable to take advantage of an opportunity to tie the game on a power play that began with 6:53 left in the period.Lehner recorded an assist on Pulock’s empty-net goal with 31.4 seconds remaining.Trotz’s milestone victory comes in his first season with the Islanders. After coaching the Washington Capitals to the Stanley Cup last season, Trotz resigned following a contract dispute. He led the Capitals to 205 regular-season victories in four years and had 557 wins in 15 seasons with the Nashville Predators.Arbour tallied 740 of his 782 coaching victories during three stints with the Islanders William Nylander Jersey , from 1973-86, 1988-94 and for one game during the 2007-08 season. New York won four consecutive Stanley Cups (1980-83) under Arbour. He began his coaching career with the St. Louis Blues.NOTES: Lehner played in Buffalo for the first time since signing with the Islanders in free agency following three seasons as the Sabres’ top goaltender. He received a mix of cheers and boos when acknowledged on the video scoreboard early in the first period. . Barzal extended his points streak to five games. He has six goals and three assists in that stretch. . Sabres LW C.J. Smith made his season debut after being called up from the minors earlier Monday.UP NEXTIslanders: Will look to match their season-long win streak at home against Chicago on Thursday.Sabres: Host Panthers on Thursday. When the Anaheim Ducks face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday at Honda Center, it might seem like nothing has changed since the last time they met five weeks ago.The Ducks (19-15-6) are trying to work their way out of a five-game losing streak, while the Lightning continue to wear out opposing nets and stack up victories with their high-scoring offense.The Lightning (30-7-2) have won 13 of their past 14 games (13-0-1). The last time they didn’t earn at least a point was a 3-1 loss against the visiting Ducks on Nov. 27. That was also the last time Tampa Bay has been held to fewer than three goals.Article continues below ...The Lightning had combined for 16 goals during a three-game winning streak when Anaheim arrived earlier this season. The Ducks were two days removed from a 5-2 loss at the Nashville Predators, dropping them to 5-9-4 over a five-week stretch with two goals or fewer in 13 of those games.But the Ducks scored two goals within the same minute early in the third period and held on for the much-needed win behind 34 saves from backup goalie Ryan Miller.The win was the start of a 9-1-0 surge, but the run seemed to hit a wall when the New York Rangers scored twice in the final 40 seconds of regulation in a 3-1 victory Dec. 18. The Ducks haven’t won since.After combining for four goals in the first four games of the current losing streak, Anaheim was looking good as it built a 4-2 lead with just under eight minutes remaining in the second period against the visiting Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night, but the Coyotes erased a two-goal deficit for the third time and won 5-4 in overtime.Ducks coach Randy Carlyle remains confident the Ducks have the personnel and style of play to be successful against any type of opponent.“We feel if we stick with it and stick with our template Womens Zach Hyman Jersey , if we can continue to play that strong forecheck and cycle down low, we’ll get our opportunities to score,” he said after the loss to the Coyotes. “Right now, with our lineup and the way we’re made up, we have to develop that blue-collar and stay-at-home type of defending through the middle of the ice much better than we did tonight.”The Ducks breathed a sigh of relief when goalie John Gibson was able to play against the Coyotes after leaving a 4-2 loss at the San Jose Sharks on Thursday with an upper-body injury. Miller is already out another four weeks after sustaining a knee injury earlier this month. He and Gibson have combined to give Anaheim the top save percentage in the NHL at .916.That number took a hit when Gibson gave up five goals on 30 shots against Arizona, which came in as the third-lowest scoring team in the NHL at 2.49 goals a game.Tampa Bay has shown it can give up a high volume of goals as well. Its last two opponents have scored five goals apiece, and five of the past six have scored at least three.“We’ve got to grow a little more here in that regard and not expect the track-meet game, although we can play it Bo Horvat Jersey , but it’s not the ideal formula as we move forward,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said after a 6-5 victory against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.The Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov leads the NHL with 63 points, including six goals and 15 assists during a 10-game point streak.
