BOSTON (AP) Lightning coach Jon Cooper came to Boston with a plan to steal back the home-ice advantage that the Bruins took away with their Game 1 win in Tampa.Now he has bigger goals in mind.”We can’t exhale http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-j.t.-compher-jersey ,” Cooper said on Thursday, a day after the Lightning beat Boston 4-1 to open a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. ”Just because we picked one up on them, we want to make it where we have three chances to knock them out. When you have that chance, you can’t let it slide.”Since winning the opener, the Bruins have lost two in a row. On Wednesday night, Ondrej Palat scored twice in the first 3:19 of the game to give the Lightning a lead it never relinquished.”They outworked us last night, there’s no doubt about it,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.Game 4 is Friday night (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN).MIRROR IMAGEVegas and San Jose each have a home shutout and a road overtime win through four games of their second-round series. Now it has become a best-of-three for a spot in the Western Conference Final starting with Game 5 (10 p.m. EDT Youth Matt Nieto Jersey , NBCSN). The Sharks have turned things around completely from Game 1, when they were constantly a step behind the speedier Golden Knights in a 7-0 loss.San Jose has done a much better job limiting Vegas’ chances since then.”That 7-0 game was not really us out there,” forward Eric Fehr said. ”We changed a lot of things. We came out flat in that game. I think we’ve done a good job of reeling it in and playing the way we can play. That was a game we just threw in the garbage and turned the page.”Now the Golden Knights will try to do the same after getting thoroughly outplayed in a 4-0 loss in Game 4.”It’s a good series, there’s no easy night,” goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. ”Nobody thought it was going to be an easy series either. We’re in good shape, 2-2, going home.”SHUFFLINGCassidy fiddled with his lines in practice on Thursday as he tried to find more offense for a team that seemed to have plenty of it in the first-round series against the Maple Leafs. With Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk sitting out of practice – Cassidy said he expects them to play on Friday night – Danton Heinen skated with Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak on the first line and Ryan Donato got time with David Krejci on the second.After scoring 28 goals in seven games against Toronto and six in the Round 2 opener, Boston was held to a single goal each in back-to-back games.”We’ll probably tinker,” Cassidy said. ”I’m not going to tell you who’s going in or who’s going out Mikko Rantanen Jersey , because we’ve got to get the healthy guys sorted out first.”ROOKIES IN THE BOOKSLightning forward Anthony Cirelli was the 23rd different rookie to score at least one goal in 56 NHL playoff games this year. That’s already more than in all of last year’s postseason. The NHL record is 38 in 1981, but over the past 30 years the most was 28, in 1990 and again in ’92.Boston’s Jake DeBrusk has six this year, leading all rookies. Minnesota North Stars forward Dino Ciccarelli scored 14 goals in ’81, the rookie record for a postseason. Penguins forward Jake Guentzel scored 13 last year and matched Ciccarelli’s point total.—AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow contributed to this story from San Jose, California. WASHINGTON — Two teams heading in opposite directions collide when the Nashville Predators face the Washington Capitals in a New Year’s Eve matinee Monday.The Predators are mired in a six-game skid after blowing a third-period lead in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. On top of that, Nashville has struggled away from home, dropping 10 straight road contests heading into Monday’s game — the start of a stretch of seven of eight games on the road.“We find ourselves losing a bunch in a row, and at times http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-nathan-mackinnon-jersey , that’s going to happen throughout the year,” Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis told the team’s website. “We’re going to have ups and downs; the injury bug or whatever it is. But, we’re not here to make excuses. We’re going to prepare the same way and work hard. We know it will turn eventually, and when it does, we’ll come out a better team because of it.”Article continues below ...The Predators have not been able to light the lamp during their skid, with only 10 goals during the slide. Viktor Arvidsson has returned from injury, but Filip Forsberg remains out and Kyle Turris is day-to-day with a lower-body issue, hampering Nashville’s offensive attack.Those offensive woes counteract the fact that the Predators have allowed the second-fewest goals in the league.“We can’t lose six in a row, not in this league and not in this division Patrick Roy Jersey , not with the parity there is,” Nashville defenseman Nick Bonino said. “We’ve just got to get better.”On the other hand, the Capitals are playing as well as any team in the NHL, and are doing it with contributions from everyone. Washington won its fourth straight Saturday, upending Ottawa 3-2 thanks to the first career goals from Madison Bowey and Tyler Lewington, and solid netminding from Pheonix Copley, not exactly household names.“It goes into the development process and just drafting the right type of players,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden told the team’s website, “and developing them in Hershey and then continuing to develop them here. It’s really an organizational job and a great job by our entire group.”Washington has won 16 of 19 to re-establish itself as a contender in a crowded Eastern Conference and done so while rarely using its true starting lineup. That will continue Monday as defenseman Matt Niskanen will miss a second straight game after a crash into the boards against Carolina. Fellow defenseman Brooks Orpik will be a game-time decision Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , after missing 27 games with a knee injury.Braden Holtby likely will get the start in net for the Capitals, though Copley certainly has held his own. The rookie goalie is 9-1-0 with a 2.37 GAA and a .921 save percentage in his last 11 starts, giving Washington confidence no matter who is between the pipes.“We’re extremely lucky to have two guys in this room who give us a chance to win,” forward Tom Wilson told reporters. “We have a pretty good team holding the fort down for us back there.”
