ANAHEIM [url=]Steven Kampfer Jersey Womens[/url] , Calif. (AP) — Nick Cousins and company took a deep breath.The first goal is on the board. The first win is in the books.Cousins scored in the shootout, Antti Raanta made 23 saves and the Arizona Coyotes beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Wednesday night for their first win.Dylan Strome and Brad Richardson scored for Arizona (1-2), which dropped its first 11 games last season.“It’s huge. Because of what happened last year it is a big relief,” Cousins said. “I think it relieves some pressure.”The Coyotes got their first goal this season when Strome converted a power-play opportunity with 2 1/2 minutes left in the first. They were the last NHL team to score.“I just looked and there was a lot of relief. We didn’t want to go another period without scoring a goal,” Strome said.Coach Rick Tocchet also looked relieved that he didn’t have to answer any more questions about when his team was going to get its first victory.“We are going to enjoy the win,” he said. “We have some work to do, but there was a lot of chances on both teams tonight [url=]Laurent Brossoit Jersey Womens[/url] , especially early on.”Anaheim was trying for the first 4-0 start in franchise history. Ryan Kesler and Ben Street scored for the Ducks (3-0-1), and John Gibson made 37 saves.“We didn’t manage the puck properly in some areas,” coach Randy Carlyle said. “We had people on the wrong side of it in some of the battles.”Kesler returned to the lineup after missing the first three games. The center had hip surgery in June 2017 and played in only 44 games last season.Kesler centered the third line and scored on his third shift 5:52 into the first period. He battled for the puck in front of the Arizona goal before firing it past Raanta to give Anaheim a 1-0 lead.“To be able to score that goal that early on in the game definitely feels really good,” Kesler said. “Everything I went through for the past year and a half, it hasn’t been fun. I had fun out there tonight.”Street’s goal at 14:39 of the second period was his first in the NHL. At 31 years and 240 days, he is the oldest player to score his first NHL goal with Anaheim in the 25-year history of the franchise.NOTES: The Ducks have allowed only six goals in their first four games, which is the lowest total in franchise history. … Anaheim’s Andrew Cogliano has an assist in two straight games. … It was Arizona’s longest goal drought to open a season [url=]Timothy Liljegren Jersey Womens[/url] , more than doubling the 67:11 mark at the start of the 1996-97 season. … Two of the six goals Anaheim has allowed this season were short-handed. The Ducks and Flyers are the only teams to have allowed two so far this season. … Arizona’s Derek Stepan played in his 600th NHL game. He is the ninth player from the 2008 draft class and first non-first round pick to reach that milestone.UP NEXTCoyotes: Return home to face Buffalo on Saturday before embarking on a four-game road trip.Ducks: Have back-to-back road games beginning on Saturday against Dallas. TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Lightning look to remain unbeaten in the month of December when they host the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday at Amalie Arena.The Eastern Conference leading Lightning have posted a 10-0-1 record this month while remaining unbeaten in regulation in 13 consecutive games, tied for the second longest streak of consecutive games earning a point in franchise history. Overall, Tampa Bay has won 15 of the past 17 games, with a 15-1-1 record since Nov. 21 that has launched the Lightning to the top of the league standings, six points clear of second place Toronto.“Our group’s done a good job all year of keeping things going in the right direction and it’s shown in the success we’ve had,” Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “But it’s only been one half here [url=]Antoine Roussel Jersey Womens[/url] , and there’s a lot of road left and we know that it’s going to take a lot of work here.”Article continues below ...Offensively, Tampa Bay’s been led by league-leading scorer Nikita Kucherov, who has nine points in his past two games to become the first player in franchise history to record at least nine points in consecutive games. Kucherov surpassed Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen for the league lead.Steven Stamkos has set a franchise record for goals in a month with 14 and is coming off back-to-back multi-goal efforts. Stamkos has climbed in to the top 10 in goal scorers with 15 goals in the past 13 games and has goals in five consecutive games.“Things are going well (offensively) right now . . . and there’s still a couple of games left this month and I’d like to continue that,” Stamkos said. “Anytime you are having success, the puck is finding you in the right areas and you have the confidence you can put it in the net. So I’d love to continue doing that in wins. It feels a lot better when things are going well for yourself and the team and I’ll look to continue that.”While the Lightning sit atop the standings, the surprising Canadiens are just looking to stay in the top eight in the Eastern Conference. Montreal moved in to the top wild card position with Friday’s 5-3 victory against Florida, one of the teams looking to track down the Canadiens in the chase for a wildcard spot.“I think it was important for us to have a good start [url=]Tim Schaller Jersey Womens[/url] ,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien told “There was a big importance on both sides to this game, and we needed to have a good start, especially on the road.”The Canadiens, however, may have to lean on goaltender Antti Niemi for an unspecified amount of time after Carey Price was placed on injured reserve with a lower body and did not leave with the team for a three-game road trip.Niemi got the call in net against the Panthers, stopping 23 shots in his first start since giving up seven goals to Minnesota on Dec. 11.“It’s been a long time sitting on that game even if I didn’t feel that bad about that game,” Niemi told “But [url=]Jay Beagle Jersey Womens[/url] , yeah, obviously I’ve been waiting to get back to get a W. I felt pretty good in practice. I think that’s the main thing, finding your game in there. So it wasn’t that bad, but after a tough game like that, it’s been a long time.”
