RALEIGH Adidas Alex Galchenyuk Jersey , N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes put together a start to the season that matched the best in franchise history.Now after a couple of blips, it’s time to regroup.The Hurricanes return to home ice for Saturday afternoon’s game against the Colorado Avalanche at PNC Arena.Article continues below ...Carolina lost in regulation for the first time this season in its past two games after a 4-0-1 start.“We’ve been working on some things,” coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “We spent time on special teams, obviously.”Carolina gave up a hat trick to Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson on Tuesday.Colorado is coming off Thursday night’s 5-3 victory at New Jersey, where captain Gabriel Landeskog logged a hat trick.“That’s why he’s the captain, that’s why he’s our leader,” defenseman Ian Cole said. “A lot of guys stepped up, but him especially.”Three points in the first two games of a four-game East Coast trip have given the Avalanche a good vibe.“To get off to a start like that, guys are having fun Adidas Barrett Hayton Jersey ,” Landeskog said. “It’s important to get a win when you stay patient and work for everything you get.”The Hurricanes have relied on an aggressive style and fast starts in games this season. The Avalanche might be playing the style that can match that.“I think (Landeskog) had our team focused and ready to go,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said of the game against New Jersey. “I thought we were the aggressors to start the game.”Brind’Amour said the Hurricanes need to straighten out the power play, but he’s generally content with what he has seen five-on-five.“We’re giving up chances, but that’s going to happen,” he said.Still, the Hurricanes have made a roster move, bringing forward Clark Bishop up from Charlotte of the American Hockey League. Rookie center Martin Necas, after scoring his first NHL goal earlier in the week, and defenseman Haydn Fleury were sent to the AHL club.Bishop will get a chance to show how he has progressed Adidas Michael Grabner Jersey , working on the fourth line.“We want to see (do) what he has done all training camp and those games down in Charlotte,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s energy. We’re expecting good, hard, honest effort.”Necas doesn’t figure to be down in the minors for long, Brind’Amour said. But this provides a chance for him to refine some areas.“He’s an NHL-caliber talent,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s playing a tough position at center. We need to get him a little more ready away from the puck. I want him to have confidence when he comes back to us.”It appears that the return of goalie Scott Darling might be a bit away as he comes back from a preseason groin injury. He has returned to practice, but he’s not likely to be on the ice Saturday.“You don’t want to push it too soon,” Brind’Amour said.Right winger Sebastian Aho has at least one point in each of Carolina’s first seven games.The Carolina home game is a rarity for this weekend, with the North Carolina State Fair going on at the grounds adjacent to the arena. ST. LOUIS (AP) Duncan Keith and the Chicago Blackhawks did their part to spoil the St. Louis’ playoff chances.The star defenseman scored a power-play goal with 8.5 seconds left and the Blackhawks beat St. Louis 4-3 on Wednesday night.Alex DeBrincat had a goal and an assist Adidas Marian Hossa Jersey , Andreas Martinsen and Blake Hillman also scored, and Jean-Francois Berube made 30 saves. The Blackhawks beat the Blues for the first time in three meetings this season.”We’re trying to win the game,” Keith said. ”At the end of the day, it’s a bigger game for them but I thought we did a good job of matching their intensity and for us it’s fun to play in a game like that. … There was something on the line so it was a little easier to get the fire going little bit.”Vladimir Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn each had a goal and an assist for the Blues. They have lost four straight to fall a point behind idle Colorado for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.Robert Bortuzzo also scored for the Blues, and Jake Allen made 22 saves in his 14th straight start.”We played terrible in the third from myself out,” Allen said. ”It’s unacceptable especially at home against a team that really has nothing to play for except beat us.”Hillman scored a short-handed goal, his first in the NHL, midway through the second to cut the Blues’ lead to 3-2. He is the fifth Blackhawk to score their first career goal this season.”It’s probably the hardest one-timer I’ve ever taken in my life,” said Hillman Adidas Chris Wagner Jersey , who was playing in his second NHL game. ”I closed my eyes and it went through a couple of bodies and luckily Allen didn’t see it.”DeBrincat tied it at 3 at 8:30 of the third with an unassisted goal, before Keith found the net for the first time in 22 games.”It’s been awhile since he scored obviously, but we did some good things as the game progressed and drew the penalty and got a break,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said.Bortuzzo opened the scoring at 4:16 of the first period with his fourth goal of the season.Martinsen tied it for Chicago at 8:57 with his first goal of the season, firing a wrist shot that trickled between Allen’s legs after the Blues failed to clear the puck twice.Schenn regained the lead for the Blues just 47 seconds into the second period, putting home a rebound from Vince Dunn’s shot from the high slot. Schenn’s 27th goal is a career high.Tarasenko made it 3-1 at 5:44 of the second. St. Louis took advantage of a Chicago defensive line change and Schenn sprung Tarasenko for a breakaway.FANCY STICK WORKJust 52 seconds into the game, Jaden Schwartz had a wrap-around attempt into a wide-open net, but Keith got his stick on the goal line to block the puck until Berube could get his glove down. The play was reviewed and it was determined that the puck did not cross the line.”I just tried to do what I could there to get everything I could, all the pressure on my stick Adidas Joakim Nordstrom Jersey , because I knew he had some momentum coming around there and was trying to wrap it around, the lane wasn’t there,” Keith said. ”A little luck too in that regard, but Berube ended up getting over there and taking the pressure off.”NOTES: Blues D Alex Pietrangelo played in his 615th career game, one shy of Bob Plager for second-most by a defenseman in franchise history. … The Blackhawks will honor Hall of Famer Stan Mikita before Friday night’s home game against the Blues. Mikita’s grandsons will take the ice on his behalf during the national anthem and highlights of Mikita’s career will be played. … Blues prospect G Ville Husso (San Antonio) was named to the 2017-2018 AHL All-Rookie team. … Blackhawks prospect D Adam Clendening was selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week after scoring two goals and five assists for the week ending April 2.UP NEXTThe teams will meet again Friday night in Chicago.
