CALGARY Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , Alberta (AP) It was a bittersweet night for rookie center Mark Jankowski.Jankowski scored four times, and the Calgary Flames finished off a disappointing season with a 7-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday.”Not the way we wanted it to end, we want to keep on playing, but definitely a building year,” said the 23-year-old Jankowski, who had just three points in his previous 18 games. ”I just take everything I learned this year from all the vets and use that as fuel in the summer to come back into camp and even better player.”Calgary entered the night in an offensive funk, having mustered only nine goals over the previous nine games, eight of them losses. The seven goals was the club’s biggest offensive outburst since a 7-4 victory over St. Louis on Nov. 13.”It’s one of those things. Tonight, for some reason, everything bounced in and I think we could have had even more,” Flames captain Mark Giordano said. ”It’s nice to end it on that note, but it’s been a tough year and obviously a disappointing year.”Before the game, players from both teams and the officials formed a circle at center ice for a moment of silence for the 15 people who lost their lives in the Humboldt Broncos bus accident.”You have those guys, that community, the team, on your mind all day Womens Will Butcher Jersey ,” Giordano said. ”We’re one big community, the hockey community, there’s a lot of people feeling this one.”Afterward, the Saddledome crowd broke into a chant of ”Broncos! Broncos!””We talked a lot to our guys about the emotion and the purity of the game,” Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. ”Just think about the young men on that bus, who would love to be in the seats that we are. That was their goal and we wanted to play as well as we can to honor that.”Spencer Foo, Garnet Hathaway and Johnny Gaudreau also scored for the Flames (37-35-10), who missed the playoffs for the seventh time in the past nine seasons. A big factor was Calgary’s 17-20-4 home record, its worst mark since 2000-01.Cody Eakin scored for Vegas (51-24-7), which finished first in the Pacific Division and will open the playoffs on home ice against Los Angeles. Vegas is the first modern-era expansion team in any of the four North America pro spots to win its division in its first season.”Right from the start it’s been a fun season,” goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury said. ”It’s fun to be a part of this team and this organization through it all. I’m really proud of the way this team has done throughout the season. Playoffs are fun, intense, exciting. I’m looking forward to getting it going.”Golden Knights veteran James Neal was impressed at how quickly the team gelled after being thrown together at the expansion draft.”What impressed me most about our group is the consistency we played with, the way we rolled four lines, we counted on each player and needed each guy every night and every guy brought their game,” he said.Down 3-0 after the first period http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-adam-pelech-jersey , Vegas scored 51 seconds into the second.

It’s a good indicator to jump back in a tough building, tough environment and just play like that, it’s a good job by the guys.”Dumba, signed to five-year, $30 million contract in the offseason, scored on a slap shot from the blue line midway through the first period. Dubnyk held up against a Vegas’ attack that outshot Minnesota 42-30 through overtime.“It’s nice to feel good out of the gate,” Dubnyk said. “It’d be nice to have two wins, obviously. It’s tough to feel too good about it. But we just try to work on those things that make you feel good and I’m feeling pretty good in there now, so we’ll have a good week.”The Wild lost for the first time in the first home game of the season at the Xcel Energy Center after starting 14-0-3 in such games.NOTES: Minnesota went 27-6-8 at home last season, finishing second in the NHL in home points. … The New York Islanders were the only other team to sweep Vegas last season, winning a pair of games. … Wild F Luke Kunin has been cleared for contact in his return from knee surgery.
