Last spring http://www.coyotesproshop.com/authentic-oliver-ekman-larsson-jersey , how much ground they need to make up on the Tampa Bay Lightning, decisively losing a first-round playoff series four games to one.As the teams get set to meet Monday night at the Prudential Center, the gap between the Lightning and Devils has widened considerably.While the Lightning (19-7-1) are once again on top of the Eastern Conference, the Devils (9-11-5) are last in the East after finishing in eighth place a year ago.Article continues below ...“That playoff series was eye-opening for our players, it showed just how far we’ve got to go to be considered one of the better teams in the league,” said Devils coach John Hynes. “But we told the players this is a new season, there’s not necessarily a carry-over from the previous season, and we have to script a new story.”So far, that story is largely disappointing for the Devils, who have lost five straight following a 4-3 overtime defeat on home ice to the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. The Devils surrendered 23 goals in the past five games, three of which were decided in overtime. New Jersey is 0-5 in overtime this season as opposed to 10-9 in 2017-18.Among their issues this season, the Devils surrender 3.44 goals per game http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-anders-bjork-jersey , ranking them near the bottom of the league. Their minus-12 goal differential is tied for worst in the Eastern Conference. They have only two power-play goals in the last 12 games. And the Devils are winless in eight games (0-7-1) when trailing after the first period.“We’re not playing horrible, but there’s always a little piece missing that’s not letting us get wins,” said Devils left-wing Taylor Hall.Despite Saturday’s loss, the Devils have been good on home ice this year with a 7-1-4 record. In addition, Hall has 27 points in 25 games; winger Jesper Bratt has nine points in 12 games since returning from injury; and center Marcus Johansson is getting his game in gear with goals in consecutive games and three goals and two assists in the last five games.“I like the way our guys played (Saturday) night,” said Hynes. “I think you have to compliment the guys and their willingness to battle. We would have liked to have the two points, but the way we battled is something to build on.”The Lightning provide a stiff test to the struggling Devils on Monday. Not only do the Lightning have more points (39) than any other club in the NHL, they’ve also won five of six and seven of nine. Plus, the Lightning already beat New Jersey twice this season, outscoring the Devils 13-5.Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov has two goals and three assists this season against the Devils, and he brings a nine-game point-scoring streak into Monday’s contest. Kucherov, who leads the Lightning in scoring with 38 points http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-brad-marchand-jersey , has 20 of those points during the last nine games.Kucherov had a goal and two assists in the Lightning’s 5-4 overtime victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday, a game in which Tampa Bay rallied from a 4-1 deficit. The red-hot Brayden Point netted the overtime-winning goal, his team-leading 19th of the season. He now has five goals in his last five games, and 10 in the last nine games.“We didn’t panic, we stayed the course,” Point told reporters following the game. “We kept playing our game. We worked hard, and when we got our chances, we converted on them.”With No. 1 goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy on injured reserve with a fractured left foot, the Lightning have not skipped a beat. Since Vasilevskiy went down, Louis Domingue started all 10 games in goal, winning seven. Despite allowing fewer than three goals only three times in that span, Domingue has kept the high-flying Lightning on course.“When the game is on the line and you need the timely save http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-david-krejci-jersey , those are the saves you need in order to win, and he’s giving us that,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper told the team’s web site. “He’s finding ways to win games for us and you need that in your goalie.”After Monday’s contest, the Devils travel out west for a three-game road trip to California, while the Lightning finish off a three-game road swing Tuesday in Detroit against the Red Wings. ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) The smiling side of a handshake line at the end of the second round was a brand-new experience for Alex Ovechkin and Barry Trotz.Ovechkin received a message of good luck and a pat on the chest from Sidney Crosby, while Trotz got to enjoy a happy moment with longtime coaching friend Jacques Martin. Ovechkin acknowledged he’d been in that position a lot of times – though never as the one moving on to the third round.Until now.The Washington Capitals reaching the Eastern Conference final for the first time since 1998 is perhaps most special to the superstar captain and his coach who had never made it out of the second round before. No coach in NHL history had been behind the bench for more games than Trotz and no active player had been in as many playoff games as Ovechkin without reaching the conference finals.”There is a kinship there, there’s no question,” Trotz said. ”I’ve been at this for a while and it’s so hard to move forward sometimes. It’s always thrown in your face everywhere your turn. I know it’s thrown in Ovi’s face everywhere he turns, and he’s a great player in this league. … I knew the frustration because you’re so close and you just can’t get it, and you just got to stay with it.”After 51 playoff games together, Ovechkin and Trotz will take part in their first East final starting Friday night in Tampa Bay against the Lightning. Now that they’ve gotten over a hump that defined their respective careers Womens Jake DeBrusk Jersey , Ovechkin, Trotz and the Capitals are in unfamiliar territory.”It’s something new for us and cool,” Ovechkin said Wednesday, less than 48 hours after Washington eliminated the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins. ”Right now it’s just satisfaction we beat the Stanley Cup champions finally and we move forward and now we’re going to play against a very good team, against very good goaltending and solid players over there.”The Atlantic Division-champion Lightning present a formidable challenge, but the Capitals had to overcome something altogether different after losing in the first or second round in all nine playoff appearances that have come during the Ovechkin era dating to 2008. Beating the rival Penguins in overtime in a Game 6 on the road made the breakthrough even more emotional.”We should be proud of that,” defenseman Matt Niskanen said. ”It’s a big achievement. But I think we’ve got to be greedy. We’ve got to want more because this is a heck of a run. I don’t know if there is a group out there that knows how hard it is to get to this point.”The Capitals are at this point with Ovechkin on top of his game with eight goals and seven assists, his best playoff output since 2009. And they’re here in large part because of Trotz, a well-respected, 19-year NHL coach who does not have a contract for next season.”I had a summer which was very enlightening to me, and I just look at everything way differently than I ever have,” Trotz said. ”I just recognized that I can only control what I can control Patrice Bergeron Jersey , and the other stuff I can’t.”Trotz can’t control upper-body injuries to Nicklas Backstrom and Andre Burakovsky or a three-game suspension handed out to winger Tom Wilson, only the decisions he makes in replacing them. So far, Trotz has pushed the right buttons, like putting Braden Holtby back in net in Game 2 of the first round and promoting Jakub Vrana to the top line in Game 5 against Pittsburgh.His players know Trotz is in control as he and the Capitals advance further into the spring than they have in 20 years.”He wants to win a Cup,” forward Chandler Stephenson said. ”He doesn’t want to make it past the second round. It’s obviously a little accomplishment, a little confidence-boost. But we’re not done yet. We’re only halfway.”—AP Sports Writer Howard Fendrich contributed.—
