WINNIPEG Tyson Barrie Jersey , Manitoba (AP) Tyler Myers could sense his Winnipeg Jets teammates struggling to fight after getting down by two goals to the Washington Capitals.Then came the pushback: Bryan Little scored to make it a one-goal game midway through the third period and Mark Scheifele supplied his second of the night with 15 seconds left to send it into overtime.Myers fired the final shot, with the veteran defenseman taking a backhand pass from Scheifele and putting the puck over Braden Holtby’s glove 3:35 into overtime for the 4-3 victory Tuesday night.”We had moments where we didn’t have much life on the bench, but we managed to flip that switch, get it back going again and I thought it was a great team win,” said Myers, who scored his sixth goal of the season.Scheifele’s 17th goal with 15 seconds left was scored short-handed and through traffic. Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien had been called for slashing Jay Beagle with 1:17 left.”It just shows that we battled so hard,” Scheifele said. ”We battled right to the end. That was top to bottom, first line to fourth line. It was an awesome feeling.”Bryan Little scored his 12th for Winnipeg (33-15-9). Byfuglien added two assists.Connor Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots for the Jets Matt Martin Jersey Womens , who were playing the seventh of a 10-game homestand. Niklas Backstrom, Andre Burakovsky and John Carlson scored for the Capitals (32-17-7), who still extended their point streak to four games (2-0-2).Holtby made 40 saves and became the second goalie in franchise history to play 20,000 minutes. Olaf Kolzig played 41,260 minutes.”They created their chances but it shouldn’t matter,” Holtby said. ”A 3-1 lead and a goal lead with 1:17 on the power play, doesn’t matter what happened in the game before that. I know we had a couple opportunities to put it into the empty net. Just move it around on the power play killing time. We just got a little arrogant, in a way Seth Griffith Jersey Womens , and tried to make fancy plays. It burned us. We deserved that.”Byfuglien set up the game’s first goal when he spun around Burakovsky in Washington’s end and sent the puck toward the net. Scheifele poked it in after it bounced off Holtby’s pad at 14:41.Backstrom tied it up with 23 seconds left in the period off a rebound from an Alex Ovechkin shot.Burakovsky made up for being outplayed by Byfuglien when he scored the go-ahead goat at 11:22 of the second off a sharp-angled rebound of a Lars Eller shot.Carlson scored his 10th goal of the season at 7:01 of the third. Evgeny Kuznetsov picked up an assist, extending his team-high point streak to eight games with two goals and nine assists. Little closed the gap at 11:30.”It’s a hard lesson to learn,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said. ”I thought in this building, this is a pretty hostile building. For 54 minutes we played a really good road game.”NOTES: Jets center Matt Hendricks left the game in the second after he was crushed to the ice by a check from Washington defenseman, and Winnipeg native, Madison Bowey. …UP NEXT:Capitals: play Minnesota on ThursdayJets: host Colorado on Friday. A few years ago the Los Angeles Kings were celebrating their second Stanley Cup title in three seasons and looking like a budding dynasty.The once-formidable franchise is occupying the basement of the NHL these days and thinking more about positioning for the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft than winning another title. At least that was the narrative a few weeks ago.The Kings have shown life lately, winning four straight — three against teams in playoff position — before falling to the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night. Los Angeles will try to keep its momentum going when it plays at the struggling Colorado Avalanche on Monday night.Article continues below ...The Kings (15-21-3) are still eight points out of the second wild card in the West with half the season left. How thing unfold over the next couple of weeks could determine if the franchise becomes a seller before the trade deadline. The players are just focusing on what is happening on the ice.“I think we’re trying to just take it one game at a time, quite honestly Jack Roslovic Jersey Womens ,” Los Angeles forward Dustin Brown told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. “We have a lot of new guys with not a lot of experience of what it takes to win at this level.”The Kings are surging as the Avalanche are stumbling. Colorado has lost four in a row, including an overtime setback to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night. Scoring has become an issue after the Avalanche were one of the top offensive teams through the first two months of the season.In five of the last six games, Colorado has scored two goals or fewer and the one contest it had four goals was a loss at Arizona.The struggles led to coach Jared Bednar shaking up his top two lines to create a spark. Despite the trio of Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabe Landeskog combining for 160 points before Saturday’s game Bednar moved Landeskog to the second line and put Matt Nieto with MacKinnon and Rantanen.By the second period, Landeskog was back on the top line. He played well but his double minor late in the third period led to a Chicago power-play goal in overtime.“Landy is a heck of a player,” Colorado forward Alexander Kerfoot told HockeyBuzz.com about the team’s captain. “Whatever line’s he’s playing on, he’ll help them produce and help them be consistent. We’re lucky to play with him tonight. He’s very consistent in what he brings every night. You know what you’re getting out of him.”Colorado (19-13-7) has three games left on this homestand and needs to turn things around. Despite going 3-7-2 in the last 12 games the Avalanche are still in third place in the Central Division.They will try to shore up some of their defensive issues, which may help get the offense going.“We want to be dangerous offensively Scott Mayfield Jersey Womens , but we’ve got to be better on the defensive side, both on the rush and in our zone,” Bednar said Saturday night.
