WINNIPEG Authentic Erik Karlsson Jersey Kids , Manitoba (AP) — Ben Chiarot wanted to play well against the defending Stanley Cup champions.The defenceman did just that by scoring the tiebreaking goal with 7:09 left in the third period to lead the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.“We’ve been talking about getting on a bit of a roll here,” Chiarot said after Winnipeg’s third straight win. “We’re excited, the Stanley Cup champs coming to town you want to bring your best effort.”Chiarot’s shot beat Capitals goalie Pheonix Copley on the glove side for his third of the season.“Their (defense) was a little gapped off and I just tried to put one on net,” Chiarot said. “It went off (John) Carlson’s shaft and it dipped on the goalie a little bit. There wasn’t much to it, it was just a lucky shot.”Mark Scheifele had a power-play score for Winnipeg, and Kyle Connor added an empty-netter to seal the victory. Connor Hellebuyck made 27 saves for the Jets, who’ve won three straight in their four-game homestand.Jakub Vrana scored for Washington, and Copley stopped 21 shots.The Capitals were coming off a 5-2 win over Minnesota on Tuesday in the opener of a four-game road trip.Copley was in net for that win and had to quickly get ready for this game because starter Braden Holtby was a late-day scratch with an undisclosed upper-body injury. University of Manitoba women’s goalie coach Gavin McHale, 31 Jean-Gabriel Pageau Jersey , was tapped to be Washington’s emergency backup.Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov left the ice in the first period soon after a check to the head by Jets forward Brandon Tanev and didn’t return.Washington coach Todd Reirden said Kuznetsov was kept out for precautionary reasons. Holtby is receiving some treatment after he skated with the team’s goalie coach earlier on Wednesday and will be evaluated.“I was really proud of our guys tonight,” Reirden said. “You lose an elite player like Kuznetsov and you’ve got Pheonix Copley playing his first-ever back-to-back.“I really liked our effort. That first period was outstanding, one of our best periods of the year.”It took the Jets almost 13 minutes to get their first shot on goal, but 14 seconds later Vrana used his team’s eighth shot to fire the puck high past Hellebuyck for a 1-0 lead with 7 minutes left in the opening period.Scheifele scored on the power play at 5:05 of the second, 7 seconds after Alex Ovechkin went to the penalty box for interference. It was his 10th goal.The teams went into the game Nos. 1 and 2 in the league on the power play, with the Jets at 34 per cent and the Capitals at 30.3. Winnipeg was 1 for 3 on the power play and the Capitals 0 for 3.“(Hellebuyck) made a lot of big saves,” Scheifele said. “He’s the backbone of our team and he does that every night. .. We had a lot of big blocks, including one from (Jacob) Trouba on (Ovechkin). We had a lot of good shots from our D-men, so it was a good team effort.”Hellebuyck said facing Ovechkin during a power play is an experience.“Not very fun ,” he said. “The guy can shoot. He’s got a lot of power play goals and you’re alone with him. It’s a scary thought.”Winnipeg had squeezed Washington’s shot advantage to 20-16 after the middle period. The Capitals had a power play late in the third, but couldn’t solve Hellebuyck.NOTES: Washington’s T.J. Oshie was flipped to the ice by Josh Morrissey late in the game and look dazed after the play. Reirden had no injury update for Oshie after the game. … Winnipeg’s Blake Wheeler had an assist, extending his point streak to 11 games (two goals, 18 assists). … Scheifele has four goals and three assists in his past three games.UP NEXTCapitals: At Colorado on Friday night.Jets: Host Buffalo on Friday night in the finale of a four-game homestand. The Pittsburgh Penguins talk a lot about turning the page from one game to the next, but they also have had several outings that sting enough to linger.They are at the latter point going into a game Friday against Boston (17-10-4).Pittsburgh (13-11-6) had points in four straight games before falling 6-3 on Wednesday at Chicago, which entered the game last in the NHL with nine wins and riding an eight-game losing streak, and played the night before.Article continues below ...“To not have the fire or whatever, the jump, I don’t know if there’s an excuse for that Youth Matt Duchene Jersey ,” Penguins forward Matt Cullen said after returning for that game from a lower-body injury.Pittsburgh had some feel-good moments in the game, erasing an early two-goal deficit and getting a hat trick from Bryan Rust, who busted a 20-game goal drought.But for what is far from the first time this season, the Penguins find themselves fighting the frustration of some deficiencies that keep cropping up — defensive lapses, critical penalties, poor puck management and a lack of an offensive response at key times.It’s not all of those things all the time, but it’s enough of them enough of the time to be concerning to them.“We’re trying to build some traction here,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. “We’ve played a lot of good hockey over the last three or four weeks. We’re trying to string some wins together and points together and (produce) momentum. When you have a night like (Wednesday), it sets you back.“I thought we gave up more odd-man rushes than we did in the last three or four weeks.”Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray (lower body) came off injured reserve Wednesday and dressed as the backup to Casey DeSmith. It’s not clear who will start against the Bruins.Boston has won three straight.Bruins center Ryan Donato has never faced Pittsburgh Mike Condon Jersey , and his impression of the club that has won three Stanley Cups since 2009 remains strong.“It’s one of those talented NHL teams that capitalize on every mistake,” Donato said. “I look up and down their lineup and they have a lot of superstars, so I think for us we’ve got to come in with a mentality of being really hungry and prepared to play some defense, but also not make any mistakes.”Boston is moving toward being healthier.While winger Jake DeBrusk has gone into concussion protocol and will sit out Friday, winger David Backes has had no lingering effects from being cut in the face Tuesday and is expected to play Friday.Backes took a skate to the face during a 4-3 win over Arizona. He returned to the game after receiving stitches.“No worse for wear,” Backes said Thursday. “It could have been a lot worse looking at the video and knowing that there’s some sharp apparatus right by my moneymaker, my face.”Center Sean Kuraly did not practice after having a minor procedure on his broken nose, the result of a fight Sunday against Ottawa’s Ben Harpur. Coach Bruce Cassidy said Kuraly was questionable to probable to face Pittsburgh and might need to add some extra facial protection.Meanwhile, center Patrice Bergeron (rib Jaycob Megna Jersey Womens , sternoclavicular injury) and defenseman Zdeno Chara (left MCL injury) skated before practice, and defenseman Kevan Miller (throat) practiced in a limited capacity.“He’s practicing in a non-contact jersey, so he’s able to do that, so that’s good,” Cassidy said of Miller. “He’ll obviously have to get cleared for contact.”
