#1

(AP) push with improved offense and solid goaltending.Evgenii Dadonov scored twice, Roberto Luongo made 39 saves and the Panthers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Sunday for their season-best sixth straight victory – all at home.”We’re obviously playing our best hockey of the year at the right time,” Luongo said. ”We know we still have a lot of work to do; there’s no taking things lightly the rest of the way. We have to make sure we keep pushing the way we have.”Luongo is 6-1 since returning Feb. 17 after missing 27 games with a groin injury.”When Lou’s in there he’s just a calming effect,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. ”He’s been solid ever since he’s come back.

Philadelphia has lost three straight after winning six in a row.”I didn’t like my game today,” Mrazek said. ”I know we didn’t score the first two periods but the game could have been 1-0 or 2-0 and we would have had a chance. I have to support these guys better.”The Panthers made it 3-0 with 1:54 left in the second on Dadonov’s second goal. Dadonov took a pass from Barkov near the blue line, took it into the slot and shot it over Mrazek’s glove.The Panthers employed the stretch pass on three of their goals.”It wasn’t our best defensive coverage, that’s for sure Custom Calgary Flames Jerseys ,” Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas said. ”They played with the stretch passes. We could have done a way better job.”Huberdeau backhanded the puck through Mrazek’s pads at 2:47 of the third.Konecny poked in a rebound with 3:21 left in the third to finish the scoring.Dadonov has nine goals in his last 10 games, including his first career hat trick Feb. 24 against Pittsburgh and leads the Panthers with five multi-goal games.”He plays hard and always first on pucks and takes hits to make plays,” Boughner said. ”Him and Barkov have some great chemistry right now. He’s increased the skill level of this team.”Barkov gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead 2:41 in on a power-play goal. Barkov took a pass from Keith Yandle near the blue line, skated in and backhanded the puck past Mrazek. Barkov has a four-game goals streak. Luongo had the secondary assist.Dadonov put the Panthers ahead 2-0 on his first goal when he fired a shot from the left circle on a pass from Nick Bjugstad and beat Mrazek on the glove side with 5:11 left in the first. Bjugstad has 11 assists in his last 15 games.Notes: Luongo’s assist on Barkov’s first period goal was his 22nd career point. … Barkov has 21 points (10 goals, 11 assists) in his past 15 games. … Flyers D Johnny Oduya left the game in the second period with an unspecified injury.The Flyers played their second game in less than 24 hours, losing 7-6 in a shootout at Tampa Bay on Saturday.UP NEXT:Flyers: Host Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.Panthers: At Tampa Bay on Tuesday night. The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that goalie Matt Murray suffered a concussion and did not take part in team practice on Tuesday.Details of the injury aren't clear at this time, but Murray played the entirety of Saturday's game www.hurricanesshoponline.com , a 5-1 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens. Murray also missed time last season due to a concussion.The 24-year-old Murray is only in his fourth season now, but the injuries have piled up on the two-time Stanley Cup champion. Murray missed 12 games in the 2016-17 season after breaking his hand.A lower body injury forced him to miss most of the 2017 playoffs, but he took over for Marc-Andre Fleury midway through the Eastern Conference Finals. Murray then guided the Penguins to their second straight Stanley Cup championship.advertisingVarious injuries hampered Murray's 2017-18 season, as a concussion, upper聽and lower body injuries limited him to 45 starts last season. Tristan Jarry (26 games) and Casey DeSmith (14 games), did a fine job in replacing Murray, who has yet to stay healthy throughout an entire regular season. Credit: Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsMurray has struggled through the first two games of the season Custom Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys , yielding a 1-1 record with a woeful 5.47 goals against average and .831 save percentage. He went through an up-and-down 2017-18 season, finishing with a 27-16-3 record, .907 save percentage and 2.92 goals against average.advertisingThe Penguins recently re-assigned Jarry to the AHL, meaning DeSmith will likely take over as the starter for as long Murray is sidelined. It shouldn't be a surprise if Jarry gets called back up, however.Pittsburgh has dealt with many injuries to key players throughout the last four seasons, winning the Stanley Cup in 2017 even though defenceman Kris Letang couldn't play at all in the postseason. When Fleury had to miss the start of the 2016 postseason, the Penguins looked doomed www.avalancheshoponline.com , until Murray came off the bench and led Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup.This team is built to get by without its key players, but they have to hope that Murray's absence is short-lived.advertising
