NEWARK Nick Jensen Jersey , N.J. (AP) — for the New Jersey Devils as they tumbled into last place in the Eastern Conference.Rookie Mackenzie Blackwood might be the solution as they try to climb back into the playoff chase.Blackwood stopped 37 shots for his first shutout and Pavel Zacha scored short-handed as the Devils beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-0 on Saturday.It was the second straight victory for Blackwood, giving the Devils their first two-game winning streak since Nov. 13-15.“It’s huge,” said Blackwood. “It’s awesome. Everyone dreams about this kind of stuff. The challenge here is to just keep going, keep moving forward, keep having success.”The Devils certainly hope so. They are without Cory Schneider who remains sidelined with an abdominal strain. Keith Kinkaid, who helped backstop the Devils last season to their first playoff appearance in six years, hasn’t been as effective with a 12-10-6 record.Andy Greene added an empty-netter to seal the win with Zacha picking up an assist.Curtis McElhinney made 28 saves for the Hurricanes who have lost four of their last five.Once again, the power play fizzled for the Hurricanes. They went 0 for 5 with the man advantage, and have not scored a power-play goal in six straight games.“It’s really frustrating,” Sebastian Aho said. “All those chances and you just can’t score to help your team win. When you’re on the first power-play unit, it’s you job to score those goals.”Zacha broke a scoreless deadlock with 36 seconds left in the second period. He poked the puck away from Carolina’s Justin Faulk and sped into the Hurricanes’ zone. McElhinney made the initial stop and Zacha stayed with the play to collar the rebound and flip it into the net.“On the breakaway, I was trying to see what the goalie does but the puck was a little bit wobbly there, so I tried to shoot it,” Zacha said. “I was lucky I got a rebound back.”Carolina pressed for the equalizer in the third but couldn’t beat Blackwood. He stoned Aho with a pad save with about six minutes left to preserve the shutout.Teuvo Teravainen seemingly netted the tying goal with 1:58 left only to have the goal waved off for accidental goalie interference. The Hurricanes appealed the call, which was upheld by the video review.“I had no idea what was going to happen there,” Blackwood said.“You never know the way those go. It was fortunate enough to get waved off Thomas Vanek Jersey , and the boys battled all the way.”Justin Williams, the Hurricane closest to Blackwood, disagreed.“It’s upsetting. Very upsetting,” Williams said. “That’s how we have to score goals. Getting to the net and screening goaltenders. I was in front of the net. I didn’t feel him touch me and I didn’t feel I touched him.”The Hurricanes outshot the Devils 13-9 in the first period with most coming from the point or the perimeter. In the final seconds, Teravainen had one of the few good in-close chances, only to be denied by Blackwood.NOTES: Both teams were missing important forwards. For the Devils, Taylor Hall, last season’s Hart Trophy winner sat out a second straight contest with a lower-body injury. Jordan Staal remained sidelined for a third game for the Hurricanes with an upper body injury. … The game was delayed briefly in the first period when linesman Tim Nowak was struck by the puck and needed attention. He remained in the game. … The goal light in one end of the Prudential Center repeatedly malfunctioned, flashing when there was no puck in the net.UP NEXTHurricanes: Host Philadelphia on Monday.Devils: Host Vancouver on Monday. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Lyndsey Fry could have continued playing hockey. She had a stellar collegiate career, a degree, an Olympic silver medal placed around her neck, so playing professionally was a logical next step.The grueling rehab from hip surgery it would take to get back to an elite level was not all that appealing. Nor was playing in a women’s professional hockey league on a less-than-livable salary — or being away from her family.Fry could have gone into the financial world, maybe work on Wall Street. She had a Harvard education, so there was an expectation to get a “Harvard” job. It certainly would pay well. That wasn’t the right fit, either. She didn’t have a passion for it.Fry coveted more than money and fame. She wanted to pay back a community that helped a little girl in Arizona with plastic skates strapped onto her shoes transform into one of the world’s best hockey players.Now working with the Arizona Coyotes Womens Adam Larsson Jersey , she’s doing just that.“I never would have dreamed I would be in this role,” she said. “I just kind of hoped to be able to help where I could, coming back to the Valley. To be in this role and really having some leverage to do what I set out to do has been really, really incredible.”Growing up in Arizona, Fry had limited opportunities to play hockey, particularly against other girls.In her new role with the Coyotes, she will make sure other hockey-mad girls like her will get the chances they deserve.Fry returned to the Valley of the Sun to earn an MBA at Arizona State and worked with the Coyotes as an instructor at various clinics. She also teamed with Coyotes director of amateur hockey development Matt Schott to run the Small Frys, a continue-to-play program for girls 6-12 who have gone through the organization’s Little Howlers program.Fry took on a bigger role with the Coyotes in November, when she was hired as a brand ambassador and special adviser to president and CEO Ahron Cohen. Fry’s primary focus is to grow hockey around the state, particularly women’s hockey, and to assist Cohen in engaging the hockey community in Arizona.“The thing that was instantaneously obvious to me was her unbelievable passion for growing hockey and being a part of this community,” Cohen said. “From that moment, I said we have to find a way to get Lyndsey involved with us here. She just naturally radiates positivity and people just want to talk to her.”Hockey has already seen a rise in the desert.In 1996, the year the Coyotes arrived from Winnipeg, there were about 2,100 registered youth and adult hockey players. The state had three rinks Cam Talbot Jersey , two in Phoenix, one in Flagstaff.Hockey has boomed in Arizona over the past five years, increasing 109 percent to more than 8,600 players, making it the No. 1 state for growth in the NHL. Arizona is third for youth hockey growth over the past five years, up 88 percent to 4,500 players, and is No. 1 in girls’ hockey growth, up 152 percent to nearly 800 players.Fry should only boost those numbers.She and Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews are Arizona’s greatest hockey success stories, players who overcame long odds to reach the pinnacle of their sport. By returning to the Valley of the Sun, Fry gives girls hockey players an up-close look at what’s possible with a little work and dedication.“She’s very inspiring for a lot of kids out there,” Cohen said. “The two greatest success stories in terms of hockey in Arizona are her and Auston Matthews. It’s pretty cool to see kids look up to her and I’m hopefully five and 10 years from now we have a whole lot more kids like Auston Matthews and Lyndsey Fry playing at the highest level because of the work that Lyndsey and this Coyotes organization has done.”Fry had a long road to the top.Inspired by the 1990s “The Mighty Ducks” movies, she first started skating with plastic skates strapped to her shoes. She played a year of roller hockey and switched to the ice when a rink was built in her hometown of Chandler.Fry was forced to play against the boys at a young age because the number of girls players could nearly be counted on one hand. She held her own against the boys and when it came time to play at the elite girls level, there wasn’t much competition, so she ended up playing for a team in Colorado.Fry made the trip to Colorado every two weeks for games and practices, staying with families in the area Youth Darnell Nurse Jersey , including former NHL player Pierre Turgeon. She became good friends with Turgeon’s daughter, Liz, and made a vow at their final game together that they’d play again with each other on the U.S. Olympic Team.The reunion never took place.While Fry was a freshman at Harvard in 2010, Liz Turgeon was killed in a car crash, devastating her family and her close friend. Fry nearly quit hockey, but the help of friends and family — and vow with Liz — pulled through and dedicated herself to the sport they both loved.“I just kind of called on her memory to help push me through,” she said.Fry pushed herself into the sport’s brightest spotlight, becoming a key member of the U.S. Olympic Team that took silver at the 2014 Sochi Games. On the podium in Russia, her thoughts veered toward the road behind her and what lie ahead.“It was like a movie,” she said. “I kept having these flashbacks of all the people who helped me get to that moment,” she said. “Most of those people were from the Arizona hockey community and I knew that I wanted to give back to that.”Now back home, Fry is making the most of it, using her skills on and off the ice to push hockey in Arizona forward.
