When they arrive at the rink for the morning skate, Ottawa players will face questions from reporters on the latest off-ice controversy surrounding the club – video of a group of them badmouthing one of their coaches that was taken with a hidden camera and placed on social media by an Uber driver. Article continues below ...At least it will take some of the focus away from a plunge that has seen the Senators (5-6-3) lose six of their last seven games, primarily because of horrible defensive play. After a decent start, they now lead the league in most goals against (59) and average shots against per game (39.1).And not all of that would be on coaching.“It has been a few too many years here where the players haven’t taken ownership,” veteran defenseman Mark Borowiecki told Postmedia after the players-only meeting that followed Sunday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. “We were talking about it when the going was good early in the year and things were kind of buzzing a little bit, and we had all that positive energy and we had that nice stuff, but we’re going through a rough patch here, where it’s a true test of our personalities.”On the other hand, the Devils (6-5-1) were writing a feel-good story Monday in Pittsburgh with a 5-1 victory on Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night. Scoring a natural hat trick and the first three goal performance of his 12-year career was Brian Boyle, who last month announced he was in remission from the chronic myelogenous leukemia he was diagnosed with in 2017.“I love these nights, I really do,” Boyle told reporters, per NHL.com. “Sometimes you feel kind of alone … it can be a dark place at times, during a cancer fight. I remember fighting it a little bit and I’m not feeling great. The worst part of it was people feel sorry for you. They don’t know what to say. You want them to feel comfortable around you.“That was a lot of fun. That was fun for us Custom Edmonton Oilers Jerseys ,” he added. It was good for us tonight. to bury a couple was nice.”It was the first victory as visitors for the Devils, who are now 1-3 during a season-long seven game road trip.The Senators are expected to go with Craig Anderson in goal. The 37-year old Anderson has appeared in 11 straight games, starting 10 of them. He leads the league in shots against (475) and saves (432) and goals against (43).Anderson is 10-3-2 all-time against the Devils, with a .935 save percentage and 2.35 goals against average.After Keith Kinkaid stopped 35 of 35 Pittsburgh shots on Monday, the Devils are expected to give Cory Schneider his third start of the season.Schneider has a career 6-3-1 record against the Senators that includes a .934 save percentage and 1.94 goals against average. LAS VEGAS (AP) — In four games back after missing 30 with an injury, Paul Stastny has made his presence known for the Vegas Golden Knights.William Karlsson and Stastny scored 1:03 apart in the third period, and Marc-Andre Fleury got his 424th career win as Vegas rallied for a 4-2 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.It marked the Golden Knights’ sixth straight win at home.Just over a minute after Karlsson skated down the left wing and fired one over Thomas Greiss‘ shoulder for his team-leading 14th goal at 6:22 to tie the score at 2-all, Reilly Smith — moved down from the top line to the second midway through the second period — fed Stastny, who put it in the open net with his second goal of the season to put Vegas ahead 3-2.“He’s easy to play with, he holds on to the puck, buys you that extra second to get open,” said Stastny, who has two goals and an assist in the last three games. “When you play with good players it doesn’t matter. I think a good coach will do a good job of switching two guys that will give a spark to two lines.”Defenseman Nate Schmidt had an empty-net goal and two assists and Brandon Pirri, also on the second line, scored as Vegas came back from two goals down near the midpoint of the second period. Fleury www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com , who made 19 saves, picked up his league-leading 20th win of the season. He also broke a tie with Tony Esposito to take sole possession of ninth place on the career list, moving 13 victories behind Jacques Plante (437).“The second period we knew they were going to have a push,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “I would say we weren’t as committed as we were in the first, and their commitment level got raised and they got a lot of momentum.”Mathew Barzal and Brock Nelson each scored for New York, while Greiss stopped 43 shots.Smith, who leads the team with 18 assists, said he was fine with coach Gerard Gallant’s line move, especially since he’s played with Pirri since their childhood days in Toronto, and skated with Stastny during training camp.“Two easy guys to play with,” Smith said. “Stas is a smart player and he’ll find openings and make a lot of nifty plays out there. I’ve been playing with Pirri since I was 8 years old, so there’s a lot of chemistry between us two. It’s nice, if you’re shuffling lines, to be able to play with somebody you’re so familiar with. I think we played with a lot of energy and created a lot of offense.”The Golden Knights, who completed a season series sweep of the Islanders after losing both matchups last year Florida Panthers T-Shirts Authentic , are 6-3-1 in December and hold the top wild card spot in the Western Conference with 42 points.“I liked our game; we kind of fell asleep for a minute and a half late in the first period and it cost us two goals, and we were disappointed with that,” Gallant said. “But I thought overall we played a real good solid game and lots of scoring opportunities. The second period was real good for us.”Trailing 2-0 after one period, the Golden Knights cut the deficit in half near the midpoint of the second. Pirri, who was called up from Chicago of the AHL on Wednesday, cleaned up a rebound in the crease with backhand over Greiss’ pads at 8:48. In three career games with the Golden Knights, Pirri has four goals.“I got to witness some playoff games last year and this building is pretty electric,” Pirri said. “So when you get this opportunity you want to make the most of it. After I scored it was pretty loud, so it was pretty fun.”Schmidt’s empty-net goal with 15 seconds left provided the final margin.The Golden Knights had a goal negated when Trotz challenged that Alex Tuch skated offsides prior to New York’s Ryan Pulock sliding into Greiss and the net while bringing the puck with him.Barzal gave the Islanders a 1-0 lead with 1:30 left in the first period, and Nelson doubled it just 1:08 later.NOTES: Vegas D Colin Miller (undisclosed injury) was out for the first time since the Golden Knights joined the league last season.
