Just as the Detroit Red Wings are finally beginning to gain some traction in the NHL season Womens Jared McCann Jersey , the New Jersey Devils look to have lost their way.These two teams currently headed in opposite directions will clash on the ice Thursday at Little Caesars Arena.The Wings, 1-7-2 in their first 10 games, have won two straight. They beat the Dallas Stars 4-2 on Sunday at home and posted a 5-3 road triumph Tuesday over the Columbus Blue Jackets, rallying after frittering away a 3-0 third-period lead.Article continues below ...“I think against Dallas was probably our most complete game,” Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard told Detroitredwings.com. “We got off to a great start in a building lately that hasn’t been that friendly to us. But we’ve still got to figure out a way, when we’re up 3-0, to not be letting teams creep back in.”The Devils arrive in Detroit for the second game of a seven-game road trip off a dreadful opening act. They squandered a 2-0 lead and were drubbed 8-3 by the Tampa Bay Lightning.“We’re not a team that can play 90 percent or 80 percent,” Devils center Nico Hischier told NJ.com. “We have to be at our best to beat teams. Everyone in this room knows his role and has to play that way.”New Jersey is 1-3-1 in the last five games and has allowed 24 goals over that span. Cory Schneider spelled Keith Kincaid in goal during the third period Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey , seeing his first game action since undergoing knee surgery in May.“Hopefully again I can come in and play well and earn the right to play more and we can have two reliable options in net,” Schneider said. “We have 15 games (in November), and December’s pretty busy, so it only gets harder from here on out.”The Wings scored nine goals in their last two games after netting just 20 goals through their first 10 games. Much of the recent production has been provided by their younger players. Dylan Larkin scored twice in Tuesday’s win, and Tyler Bertuzzi netted the game winner off a feed from rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski.Anthony Mantha, Detroit’s goal-scoring leader last season with 24, has scored in consecutive games after netting one goal in the first 10 games. Rookie Michael Rasmussen scored his first NHL goal in Tuesday’s win.“It’s great,” Howard said. “We need the younger guys to drive the bus here for us and the last couple of games they’ve done that.”It wasn’t all roses for Detroit. In the last two games http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-keith-yandle-jersey , they’ve lost all three members of their second forward line to injury. Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou didn’t play Tuesday, and Thomas Vanek was hurt early in the game.“I would say Vani’s out,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “If I were to give an estimate, it would be 2-3 weeks. Is it longer or shorter? We’ll find out when he gets examined.”Nielsen won’t play Thursday, while Athanasiou is a game-time decision.“I think we’ll call two forwards up,” Blashill said. “If AA (Athanasiou) can play, then we’ll call one. We’ll know more on AA tomorrow but I think there’s a good chance we’ll call two forwards up.” LAS VEGAS (AP) — Suspended defenseman Nate Schmidt and the Vegas Golden Knights agreed to a $35.7 million, six-year contract extension Wednesday that runs through the 2024-25 season.The team announced the move late Wednesday night after losing 3-2 to the Vancouver Canucks in a shootout. Schmidt’s new deal is worth $5.95 million per year.The 27-year-old Schmidt was banned 20 games last month for violating the NHL’s performance-enhancing drug policy. He can return to the Golden Knights on Nov. 18.“He is the kind of defenseman that every team in this league is looking for now Womens Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey ,” Vegas general manager George McPhee said. “He is unique, excellent defensively and has become a shutdown defenseman for us playing against the other clubs’ top players. But he also brings a lot of pace to the game and he brings offense.”Schmidt led the Western Conference champions in ice time last season at 22:14 per game. He had five goals, 31 assists and 19 penalty minutes in 76 games. He added three goals and four assists with four penalty minutes in 20 playoff games for the expansion Golden Knights, who lost to the Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Final.In five NHL seasons, Schmidt has 13 goals, 66 assists and 64 penalty minutes in 276 career games. The native of Minnesota was selected by Vegas from Washington during the 2017 expansion draft.“He means a lot,” coach Gerard Gallant said. “He’s a top player for us. He’s done a great job playing defense for us last year. Obviously he got a real nice contract that he deserves, and we miss him a lot. So he’s a big player for our group and we’re happy to have him for long term.”Schmidt insisted he didn’t intentionally take a banned substance and couldn’t have gotten any performance benefit from the “trace amount” that got into his system.He and the Golden Knights released statements disagreeing with the penalty Roberto Luongo Jersey , though neither specified the substance. Schmidt said one of the experts testifying on his behalf at the appeal hearing likened the amount to a pinch of salt in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.The appeal, which was heard by a neutral arbitrator, was denied.
