NEW YORK — The Nashville Predators are widely considered one of the teams likeliest to contend for the Stanley Cup this season. The New York Rangers are … not.But the Rangers will get an early opportunity to prove the prognosticators wrong Thursday night when they host the Predators in the season opener for both teams at Madison Square Garden.The Rangers embarked upon a rebuilding project late last season Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , finishing 34-39-9 and in last place in the Metropolitan Division. New York shipped off several veterans at the trade deadline, including Rick Nash and captain Ryan McDonagh.Article continues below ...Immediately after the season, the Rangers fired head coach Alain Vigneault, who directed the team to playoff berths in his first four seasons at the helm and steered them to the Stanley Cup Finals in his first campaign in 2013-14. Vigneault’s successor is David Quinn, who arrived from Boston University to oversee the type of youth movement rarely undertaken in the Big Apple. But Quinn is not ready to concede the season, even though the Rangers’ uphill task is made taller by their placement in the Metropolitan Division — home of the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins, who combined to win the last three Stanley Cups.“Obviously, a lot has been made of the different direction we’re in right now, but we want to win every game,” Quinn told reporters. “I don’t think about it any other way, I think about coming here every day http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-nolan-patrick-jersey , being the best team we can be, making every guy a better player, making us a better team, collectively, and playing the way we want to play.“And the winning and losing will take care of itself. And we feel we have enough good NHL players to give us a chance night in and night out.”There’s little doubt the Predators have the players to compete for a title. Nashville, which reached its first Cup Finals following the 2016-17 season, led the NHL with 117 points last season (53-18-11) but fell to the Winnipeg Jets in a seven-game Western Conference semifinal series.Head coach Peter Laviolette, who has put together a Hall of Fame resume by leading three franchises to the Cup Finals (he won the Cup with Carolina in 2005-06 and coached Philadelphia to the title round in 2009-10), is aware of the expectations surrounding the Predators and is eager to begin finding out just how good his team can become.“It’s the beginning of a journey for our group, and you hope to play a long time and find success all the way through,” Laviolette told reporters. “That brings excitement to the guys that get sick of practices and training camp. They want to play games Scott Laughton Jersey , and New York is a great place for us to start.”Two franchise icons are expected to start the game in goal for New York and Nashville.Henrik Lundqvist is scheduled to set a franchise record by starting his 13th straight season opener for the Rangers. Lundqvist, who enters this year ranked within the NHL’s top 15 all-time in wins, games and saves, is 8-5-0 in 13 games against the Predators.Reigning Vezina Trophy winner Pekka Rinne, who has spent his entire 12-year career with the Predators, will draw the start. Rinne, whose Vezina Trophy last year was his first, is 3-2-1 in six games against the Rangers. NEW YORK (AP) — Tomas Nosek jumped on a loose puck to help the Vegas Golden Knights‘ open their trip with a victory.Nosek scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period and the surging Golden Knights beat the New York Islanders 3-2 on Wednesday night for their ninth win in 11 games.Oscar Lindberg’s shot from the top of the left circle was stopped by goalie Robin Lehner. However, as the puck lay at the right side, neither Lehner nor defenseman Thomas Hickey immediately went for it, and Nosek put it in for his third 3:32 into the third.“I saw the puck was loose so I just tried to go under (Hickey’s) stick Womens Sean Couturier Jersey , and I think I hit that and the post and then put it in.” Nosek said. “It’s great to have a win like that on the road.”The play started with a turnover by defensemen Ryan Pulock in the corner and Vegas’ Ryan Carpenter got the puck to Lindberg.“It was a quick turnover and Lindy did a good job getting open and he got a good, quick shot, maybe surprised the goalie,” Carpenter said. “And then Nosek did a good job outworking that guy and winning the battle in front.”Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson also scored for the Golden Knights, who are 10-3-1 at home but improved to 8-11-0 on the road in the opener of a four-game trip. Marc-Andre Fleury, who made his 11th straight start, stopped 23 shots to take over the NHL victory lead with 18.Anthony Beauvillier and Adam Pelech scored for New York. The Islanders have lost six of eight (2-4-2). Robin Lehner finished with 14 saves to fall to 0-4-2 in his last seven appearances.“We played well in so many areas of the game but we gave them things that were a little bit unforced,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “Turnovers cost us.”On Nosek’s go-ahead goal, Hickey said there was miscommunication between him and Lehner.“It’s on the both of us to communicate and get it out of harm or recover it,” he said.Pelech nearly tied it about three minutes later, but his shot rang off the goalpost.New York pulled Lehner for an extra skater with a little more than a minute remaining http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey , but couldn’t get the equalizer.Vegas’ 17 shots on goal was a season-low, eclipsing the 21 they had in a 1-0 win at Philadelphia on Oct. 13.“We didn’t have a ton of shots,” Carpenter said. “Fleury made some big saves for us, we capitalized on some chances. Starting the road trip like this definitely feels good and gives us some confidence.”The Islanders failed to score on their lone power-play chance to fall to 1 for 28 over the last 12 games.Fleury made successive stops on Mathew Barzal in front about 6 1/2 minutes into the second period to keep the score tied 1-1.New York then went ahead when Barzal brought the puck up the left side on a rush, stopped and sent the puck to Pelech at the center point and the defenseman fired it in for his third with 8:41 left. Barzal got his second assist of the game and team-leading 22nd of the season.After a giveaway by Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy, Karlsson tied it 2-2 with a shot from the right circle for his 11th with 3:29 left in the middle period.Vegas went on the power play just 19 seconds into the game when the Islanders’ Casey Cizikas was whistled for cross-checking. The Golden Knights took advantage just 15 seconds later as Marchessault got a pass from defenseman Colin Miller in the right circle and beat Lehner up high from the dot for his 12th.Beauvillier tied it less than three minutes later. He took a pass from Johnny Boychuk in front and beat Fleury through the five-hole at 3:17 for his ninth.NOTES: The start of the third period was delayed about 15 minutes due to a lighting issue in the arena. … Karlsson has six goals and seven points in his last nine games. … Marchessault needs one point for 100 with the Golden Knights. … Lindberg’s assist on Nosek’s goal gave him five points in his last five games. … The teams conclude the season series at Vegas on Dec. 20. … The Islanders, who won both meetings last season in Vegas’ inaugural campaign, were the last team the Golden Knights had not beaten. … Beauvillier has eight goals and 10 points in his last 13 games. … Trotz was facing Vegas for the first time since leading Washington past the Golden Knights in five games in the Stanley Cup Final in June.UP NEXTGolden Knights: At New Jersey on Friday night.Islanders: Host the Detroit Red Wings at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday night.
