And probably in a better mood, too.The Jets will look to lock up a winning record on their Eastern Conference road trip Sunday night when they visit the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.Both teams will be playing the second game of a back-to-back set. The Jets squandered a two-goal lead in the final five minutes of regulation before Mark Scheifele scored his second goal of the night 16.3 seconds left in overtime to lift Winnipeg past the host New Jersey Devils 4-3. The visiting Rangers traveled home immediately after falling to the Montreal Canadiens 5-2.Article continues below ...The chaotic victory could provide more momentum for the Jets (15-8-2), who have won two straight and three of their last four. Winnipeg went up 3-1 on goals by Josh Morrissey and Andrew Copp within a three-minute span just beyond the midway point of the third period before Jesper Bratt and Taylor Hall tied the score for the Devils.“Lots of emotion on our bench,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said after the win. “They overcame a lot of obstacles. I really liked the way we played in the third. I thought that was our best period.”At this point, the Rangers (13-12-2) are just looking to enjoy one good period as they try to snap out of a slump that threatens to undo the progress they made during a surprising first month of the season.New York has lost four of five, a stretch in which it has been outscored 19-9, suffered two shutout defeats and blown a two-goal lead to the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals in another loss. On Saturday, the Rangers fell behind 4-0 fewer than six minutes into the second period.“We’re not in the greatest mindset right now,” Rangers rookie coach David Quinn told reporters after Saturday’s game. “We’re not playing with a lot of confidence, and for good reason.”Backups Laurent Brossoit and Alexander Georgiev started in net for the Jets and Rangers, respectively Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , which means No. 1 goalies Connor Hellebuyck and Henrik Lundqvist are likely start Sunday night.Hellebuyck last started Thursday when he had 26 saves as the Jets defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 6-5.

The Avalanche (3-1-2) are playing well despite losing two straight.Article continues below ...“It’s a challenge playing these guys,” Devils center Brian Boyle said. “They’re a lot like us — young, fast, hungry. It should be a good game.”New Jersey is outscoring the opposition by a dominating 17-4 through four games. Goalie Keith Kinkaid already has two shutouts, including Tuesday’s 3-0 win over the Dallas Stars, and he owns a sparkling .961 save percentage to go along with a 1.00 goals-against average.“He’s just taken that net and owned every part of it,” Devils defenseman Will Butcher told the team’s website. “He’s taken a huge step in his game.”Kinkaid is not alone , though, in the Devils’ early-season success. Kyle Palmieri scored the opening goal in all four games this season, and has seven through four games. Jean-Sebastien Dea has three goals in four games.Eight players have three points or more, including four defensemen. The team has killed off 13 of 14 penalties and is perfect the last 13 times short-handed.“It’s fun to come to the rink right now,” Palmieri said. “The team’s in a good mood, and we’re happy with the way we’re playing. We’re beating some really good teams, so, hopefully, we just keep that going.”New Jersey is rolling even though reigning Hart Trophy winner Taylor Hall is without a goal through four games — though he does have four assists. Certainly, the Avalanche and their top player, Nathan MacKinnon , will be aware of Hall on the ice.Last year, MacKinnon was runner-up to Hall for the Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player. Both players scored 39 goals, and MacKinnon had 97 points to Hall’s 93.MacKinnon picked up this year where he left off. He has seven goals already and established a franchise record with goals in each of the first six games of the season after scoring in the second period of Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Rangers.“I’d like to get a few more assists actually, but it’s been nice, the puck is going in for me,” MacKinnon told the Avalanche website.Mackinnon’s linemate, Mikko Rantanen, also has at least one point in each game so far. Rantanen’s eight assists and nine points both are team highs.“You need to have chemistry to be successful, and Mikko and I have lots of chemistry,” MacKinnon said. “He’s a big guy, slows the game down Womens Craig Smith Jersey , and I like to speed it up. We complement each other really well.”The Avalanche might receive a boost Thursday as it appears Sven Andrighetto will play in his first game of the season. He suffered a leg injury during the preseason but practiced fully on Wednesday.“He is going to be available for us (Thursday),” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “I think he looks quick, he is in really good shape. He has done a lot of hard work since he’s been out and I’m excited to have a guy like him available again, adds some skill and some speed to our lineup.”Semyon Varlamov, who was sensational in making 41 saves against the Rangers, will get the night off Thursday and Philipp Grubauer makes his second start of the season in goal.Last season, the Devils won both games with the Avalanche, outscoring them by a combined 6-2. Butcher had three assists in the season series against the team that originally drafted him.
