    complete epic comeback win over Maple Leafs,Authentic Carter Hutton jersey,Lightning overcome 3-goal deficit

    Alex Killorn broke a tie midway through the third period and the Tampa Bay Lightning scored the final four goals to rally past the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 on Tuesday night.

    Victor Hedman, who moved five points ahead of second-place Boston for the top spot in the Eastern Conference., Ryan McDonagh and Nikita Kucherov also scored as Tampa Bay reached 50 wins for the second time in franchise history. Yanni Gourde had two assists for the Atlantic Division leaders

    Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves and set a Lightning record with his 41st victory of the season.

    Killorn took a pass from rookie Tony Cirelli and fired in a shot from the slot at 9:14 of the third to put the Lightning ahead after they trailed 3-0 midway through the second period.

    which fell to 28-2-2 when leading after two periods. Fredrik Andersen returned after missing two games with an upper-body injury and stopped 21 shots in the loss.,James van Riemsdyk scored twice for Toronto

    The Lightning played the final two periods without forward Ryan Callahan, who exited at 16:04 of the first after getting tangled up along the boards with Toronto forward Josh Leivo. Callahan left the ice favoring his right arm and shoulder area.

    The Maple Leafs built a three-goal lead with the help of two from van Riemsdyk, the first at 15:06 of the first period during a delayed penalty call and his second 1:29 into the second while on a power play. Zach Hyman then took advantage of Tyler Johnson’s turnover in the Tampa Bay end before beating Vasilevskiy with a wrist shot at 15:41.

    Hedman answered for Tampa Bay with his 13th of the season 59 seconds later to cut into the lead heading to the third period.

    go weeks between starts but perform as if you are playing regularly when you do play. Above all,Curtis McElhinney lives in a world where excuses are worthless and complaining won’t do him any favours. His role is clearly defined: be on the ice for practice early and stay late, support Frederik Andersen.

    McElhinney and Andersen have forged a strong relationship,Since arriving in Toronto after being claimed off waivers from the Columbus Blue Jackets in Jan. 2017, each understanding their role on the team. The Maple Leafs' approach to goaltending has been simple: Andersen always plays unless it's the second of back-to-back games and then McElhinney plays.

    it’s more a support thing,Authentic Martin Jones jersey,“The nice thing for him is it gives him one less thing to concern himself with and obviously I understand what my role is now. I’m not here to try to steal his job,” McElhinney told Sporting News after practice on Tuesday.

    Some teams want competition among their goaltenders with the backup pushing the starter for more playing time,Authentic Brent Burns jersey, but not the Maple Leafs. The role of the backup goaltender in Toronto is to support the starter.

    “Mac’s (McElhinney) a real good man, he’s done a great job for us to say the least.” ,” coach Mike Babcock said. “We know who the starter is,Authentic Alex Pietrangelo jersey, he’s played real well for us, we know what Mac’s job is and they do too. Just by being a good pro, a good person and knowing your job and supporting the starting goalie

    Some goaltenders are more motivated when they know the backup is nipping at their heels for more playing time. Not Andersen.

    In a conversation with Sporting News earlier in the season,adidas Vladimir Tarasenko jersey, Denmark, the 28-year-old native of Herning,adidas Jake Allen jersey, explained that he found it more tiring when he was breaking into the NHL with the Anaheim Ducks—playing less but battling for ice time against Jonas Hiller and John Gibson—than he does this season with a far heavier on-ice workload.

    Andersen works best when he knows where he stands, when he can practice and when he can rest. Rather than worrying about his job security, can anticipate when he is starting, Andersen thrives when he can simply focus on stopping the puck.

    It can be a difficult dynamic to achieve amongst a goaltending tandem but McElhinney, has no intentions to wage a hostile takeover of the crease. He knows what he is and what is expected of him. He knows if he fulfills those responsibilities, now 34-years-old and in his tenth NHL season, it keeps him in the league.

    “I’m just trying to support [Andersen] and if he needs anything from me then I’ll take care of that,adidas Carter Hutton jersey, ” said McElhinney. “It’s very clearly defined what our roles are and I think that makes it a little bit easier as well.”

    Seated directly beside each other at both the practice rink and Air Canada Centre, it's evident the two goaltenders hold great respect for each other. There is not a hint of animosity between them.

    on the other hand,Buffalo hasn't played since Saturday afternoon in a matinee against Vegas. Toronto, played on Wednesday evening and got into town early Thursday morning.

    Despite their rest, the Sabres start propelled them to a win. Replicating their start from last week would've gone a long way for the Sabres. Instead,adidas Martin Jones jersey, the Sabres fell behind 2-0 less than halfway through the first period while Toronto dominated play at both ends of the ice. When these two teams met 11 days ago, they played catch up all game. The only problem,adidas Brent Burns jersey, they never actually caught up.

    It'd be fair to say Thursday wasn't Robin Lehner's best game. He by no means deserves all the blame but also could've bailed his team out early with a big save. Without a stick,adidas Alex Pietrangelo jersey, there wasn't much Lehner could do on James van Riemsdyk's first goal of the evening from the side of the net. The shot clearly caught the Sabres' net-minder off guard.

    as the Sabres gave him all the time in the world to let off a perfect wrist-shot. Even with the poor defense,Van Riemsdyk scored again moments later,Authentic Vladimir Tarasenko jersey, Lehner had a good look at the shot and flat out got beat.

    In the second period, as a Connor Carrick floated a shot from the blue line past Lehner. It was tough to see if Lehner even saw the shot. As for the fourth goal,Authentic Jake Allen jersey,the Maple Leafs quickly added onto their lead, there was absolutely nothing Lehner could do. Once again van Riemsdyk made an awesome play, sliding a perfect pass to Tyler Bozak who slammed home the goal.
