GLENDALE [url=]TJ Brodie Jersey[/url] , Ariz. — The first half of the Arizona Coyotes‘ season hasn’t much resembled the first half of the 2017-18 season.But when it does, it’s obvious that it starts angering coach Rick Tocchet.No wonder the San Jose Sharks aren’t certain which Coyotes team they’ll face when the Pacific Division teams meet for the first time this season Saturday at Gila River Arena. The Sharks are coming off a 3-2 road loss to the Dallas Stars on Friday.Article continues below ...Will the Sharks see the Coyotes who looked passive during a 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals, failing to hold two leads and giving up two goals in the third period?Or will they see the Coyotes who won four straight before that as Adin Hill was almost perfect in net, allowing only two goals?The team that utilized its speed, the NHL’s best penalty-killing unit, Hill’s near-faultless play and a standout top line to rebound from losses of 6-1 (Calgary) and 5-1 (Colorado) in successive games in late November?“We kind of just backed up and I hate backing up,” Tocchet said after the game against the Capitals. “(You) play the same way you play at the start, or most of the game, you just don’t back up. It’s frustrating. We’ve got keep pounding away at the attitude.”Forward Christian Fischer acknowledged that “it’s easy to get intimidated with the (Stanley Cup champion) Capitals’ roster” — apparently even at a time when the Coyotes were playing some of their best hockey of the season.“It’s hard to win in this league,” Tocchet said. “That’s why the details have to be there. Get sticks on pucks, go through people [url=]Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey[/url] , go to the net, shoot the puck. These are details you have to do, and good teams do that.”It was the lack of those details that led to the Coyotes’ 9-27-5 record in the first half of the 2017-18 season — and led Tocchet to speak much more often with the tone that he did after the game against the Capitals.The Coyotes are a much-better 13-12-2 this season as they go for their 14th victory, a win that didn’t arrive until Feb. 12 last season. Every so often, though, the Coyotes resemble — even if it’s only for part of a game — that 2017-18 team.“These are games you’ve got to win, I think,” Tocchet said. “It’s not the good old college try.”The Coyotes (13-12-2) called up forward Michael Bunting from Tucson (AHL) on Friday because forward Vinnie Hinostroza is week to week with a lower-body injury that apparently occurred early in the second period Thursday.With starting goalie Antti Raanta (lower-body injury) on injured reserve, it seems likely that Hill will make his fifth consecutive start — although backup goalie Darcy Kuemper(lower-body injury) could be ready soon.The Sharks led 1-0 in the first period Friday on Evander Kane’s eighth goal of the season and were tied 1-1 after two periods in Dallas, but Miro Heiskanen and Brett Ritchie scored less than two minutes apart early in the the third period to give the Stars a 3-1 lead. Logan Couture scored at 6:59 — or 33 seconds after Ritchie’s goal — but the Sharks couldn’t get the tying goal.San Jose was trying for a third consecutive victory.“I’m disappointed we didn’t get points out of this game. We had more than enough opportunities to get more out of this game than we did,” Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. “You’ve got to keep playing [url=][/url ] , keep playing; when we’re down 3-1, we didn’t quit, we battled back.“It was a competitive game. We had chances throughout the night and opportunities to tie it up at the end but didn’t get it.” ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Washington Capitals woke up in Minnesota for the start of a four-game road trip with a pleasant surprise: Tom Wilson was back.So was the vigor for the Stanley Cup champions, who’ve started their title-defense season rather slowly.Wilson returned early from his player-safety suspension and scored a first-period goal, helping the Capitals cool off the Wild with a 5-2 victory on Tuesday night.“He’s a key player for our team. Brings so much energy both on the ice and off the ice, so a huge lift for the team to get him back,” said Andre Burakovsky, who had a goal and an assist.Dmitry Orlov had his first two goals of the season and an assist, T.J. Oshie also scored and backup goalie Pheonix Copley made 26 saves for the Capitals, who welcomed Wilson back to the right wing on the first line with captain Alex Ovechkin and center Evgeny Kuznetsov. An arbitrator’s reduction of Wilson’s 20-game ban for an illegal blindside hit to the head in a preseason game made him immediately eligible again.“It was a good game by the fellas [url=]Brock McGinn Jersey Kids[/url] , and it felt good to put together a good 60 minutes,” Wilson said. “Hopefully we can get this thing going a little.”Mikko Koivu and Matt Dumba had goals for the Wild, who played at home for the first time in 17 days after a 5-2 finish on their franchise-record seven-game road swing. They fell to 5-1-2 at Xcel Energy Center, becoming the last team in the NHL to lose at home in regulation this season.“You get spoiled. They weren’t as good as they were for the last 12 games,” said coach Bruce Boudreau, whose club was 10-2 over the previous four weeks.The Wild have given up the first goal in 13 of their 18 games, though they entered the night tied for the best record in the league in those situations at 8-3-1. Orlov’s snap shot scraped the crossbar and found the back of the upper right corner just 6:33 into the game.Then Orlov, who was recently split up with usual blue-line partner Matt Niskanen in an attempt by first-year coach Todd Reirden to seek a spark amid the sluggish start, set up Wilson in his season debut. Orlov maneuvered around Dumba and fed Wilson for a one-timer with 27.4 seconds left before the first intermission .Ryan Suter was chasing Wilson, who was caught between the defenseman and Devan Dubnyk in a collision that knocked the Wild goalie to the ice and left him down and dazed for a moment. Wilson picked up a goaltender interference penalty while scoring the goal. He was second in the NHL in penalty minutes last season.“The puck went in the net before he touched the goalie, so there wasn’t much you could do about it [url=]Authentic Jaccob Slavin Jersey[/url] ,” Boudreau said. “That’s the way he plays.”Eric Staal thought he had a goal for the Wild early in the second period, but that was waved off because he kicked the puck, one of several near-misses for the Wild. Instead, Burakovsky scored soon after for a 3-0 lead. Suter and Dumba, the first blue-line pair, were on the ice for each of the first three goals.“It didn’t look like we were connecting very well, and some of the mental mistakes we made are going to cost you against a good offensive team,” Staal said.The Wild went a whopping 14:03 without a shot on goal, until Staal’s wrist shot was stopped by Copley. Koivu’s backhander trickled through Copley’s pads to put the Wild on the board about a minute later, and Marcus Foligno tried to keep the momentum going by dropping the gloves and fighting Wilson. The Wild had 22 of their 28 shots in the second half of the game, but they just couldn’t convert enough of those chances.Wilson just finished serving his fourth suspension in a little more than a year [url=]Jeff Skinner Jersey[/url] , this for a blindside hit to the head of an opponent during a preseason game . His presence gave Washington’s lagging penalty kill a boost.“I didn’t expect him to have as strong a game as he did,” Rierden said.Dumba’s goal was the only tally for Minnesota in six power-play opportunities. The Capitals, who entered the night ranked third-worst in the league on the penalty kill, allowed six power-play goals over their previous four games.NOTES: This was the eighth straight win by the Capitals over the Wild, whose last win in the series was at Washington on March 5, 2015. All but one of the victories by the Capitals during the streak have come in regulation. … This was the third two-goal game of Orlov’s 382-game career. … Staal has 30 goals and 44 assists in 77 career games against the Capitals, his most points against any other team. … With his 341st career goal, Parise passed Dave Christian to become the leading scorer among Minnesota-born players in NHL history. … Dubnyk stopped 28 shots.UP NEXTCapitals: Play at Winnipeg on Wednesday.Wild: Host Pacific Division-leading Vancouver on Thursday.
