NEWARK http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-nolan-patrick-jersey , N.J. (AP) On the opening day of the baseball season, Sidney Crosby swung and connected for the Pittsburgh Penguins, preventing the New Jersey Devils from sweeping their four-game season series with the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion.Crosby batted his own rebound out of the air and into the net 19 seconds into overtime, and the Penguins beat the Devils 4-3 on Thursday night, marking the second time in just over a week the back-to-back Conn Smythe Trophy winner has scored on a baseball swing.Ive seen him do it so many times, it doesnt surprise us anymore, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. Hes an elite player. There arent too many (making) guys those types of plays. He does it time and time again. He thinks the game on such a high level and hes such a competitor.Kris Letang stole Taylor Halls pass in the opening seconds in the Pittsburgh zone and sent Crosby on a semi-break the other way. His initial shot hit the goalpost, but then the star center pulled his hands in and swatted the puck, extending his goal-scoring streak to five games.The tally was similar to one against Montreal last Wednesday in which Crosby juggled the puck once on his stick before smacking it from just below shoulder height.Crosby Scott Laughton Jersey , who has won almost every major award in the NHL, modestly downplayed his latest trick.I just tried to stay with it, he said. Its fortunate it came back to me. I saw it go off post.Pittsburgh defenseman Brian Dumoulin called the goal incredible.It kind of leaves you in awe, he said. I mean we see it a lot, but every time he does it and does something special its crazy to see and enjoyable. It just speaks to what an incredible player he is.Conor Sheary, Letang and Patric Hornqvist also scored for the Penguins. Matt Murray made 28 saves.Kyle Palmieri, Hall and Blake Coleman scored for the Devils, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Keith Kinkaid had 31 saves in losing for only the fourth time in his last 16 decisions (12-3-1).Thats a good team over there, Palmieri said after the Devils remained three points in front of Florida in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They know how to win at this time of year. Well take the point and reset and shore some things up for us. Its a big weekend for us.New Jersey has five games left in the regular season Womens Sean Couturier Jersey , one less than the Panthers, who lost 3-2 in overtime to Ottawa.The losses by Ottawa and New Jersey clinched playoff berths for Washington and Toronto, which were both idle.The game was tied three times, with the Penguins getting a lucky bounce on Hornqvists 25th goal that tied it with 8:34 left in regulation. His shot from just inside the blue line went through a maze of players, hit the goalpost and then bounced off Kinkaids leg into the net.Coleman had given the Devils the lead 5:11 into the third period. He stole a puck at the Penguins blue line, worked a give-and-go with Travis Zajac and then put the rebound of his own shot past Murray. It was his 12th goal of the season and third against Pittsburgh.The game was tied 1-all after the first period and 2-all after the second.Palmieri, who has four goals in his last three games, was sent on a breakaway by Nico Hischier and beat Murray between the pads at 12:19. Sheary tied it 25 seconds later after taking a cross-ice pass by Hornqvist and beating Kinkaid in close.Letang, who has goals in two straight http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey , put Pittsburgh ahead 6:59 into the second period, beating Kinkaid from low in the right circle.Hall tied the game with a power-play goal from the right circle. It was his 34th goal.NOTES: Hischier is the first Devils rookie to have 50 points in a season since Adam Henrique in 2011-12. The Penguins now have four 25-goal scorers with Hornqvist joining Evgeni Malkin (42), Phil Kessel (30) and Crosby (28). Its the first time since 2011-12. RW Patrick Maroon returned to the Devils lineup after missing two games with a lower-body injury. Rookie RW Jesper Bratt was a healthy scratch.UP NEXTPenguins: Host Montreal on Saturday.Devils: Finish four-game home stand on Saturday against Islanders. LAS VEGAS (AP) The San Jose Sharks made it a priority to get faster following a loss in the Stanley Cup Final to Pittsburgh two years ago.The Sharks looked awfully slow and lost at times in the 7-0 rout at the hands of the Vegas Golden Knights in their second-round series opener.Vegas outhit the Sharks, 48-33.Vegas had 15 takeaways, San Jose had six.Vegas blocked 26 shots, the Sharks 13.San Jose was whistled for 10 penalties; Vegas just five.We had a laundry list of issues, coach Peter DeBoer said. We werent good, and they beat us. Its obviously not pretty and we know we have to be better across the board.The Sharks dont have much time, and maybe thats a good thing. Game 2 is Saturday night.San Jose wont have forward Evander Kane Travis Konecny Jersey , who was suspended one game for cross-checking Vegas forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare in the head after a whistle late in the third period Thursday night. He was sent off and Joe Pavelski went off at the same time for slashing,In a video announcing the suspension, the NHL department of player safety said Kanes cross-check was not a hockey play and served no purpose other than to strike an opponent in the head.Im not a dirty player. It was just a forecheck that went into a scrum, Kane said afterward. I just cross-checked him in the arm and unfortunately that rolled up when he extended his arm. There was no intent and Im glad he wasnt hurt on the play.The game was out of hand by then.Goaltender Martin Jones, who looked brilliant in the first round by allowing just four goals in a sweep of Anaheim, came into the series with a career .931 save percentage, third best ever among goalies with at least 20 playoff games. He gave up four goals in the first period alone and was pulled after allowing a fifth 3:28 into the second period.That was on us as a group and it wasnt on him, DeBoer said. I wanted to give him enough time that he could feel ready for Saturday but at the same time, you know Adam Cracknell Jersey Womens , not have to stand in there and get embarrassed.The Sharks started the series without star center Joe Thornton, who has been out since Jan. 23 with a knee injury, and there is no timeline for his return.The Sharks must figure out a way to solve Marc-Andre Fleury, who stopped 33 shots for his13th career shutout in the playoffs and third this postseason. Fleury made 17 saves in the first period alone, including 10 on the penalty kill, while his teammates were scoring at the other end. San Jose was 6 for 20 on the power play in the opening round against the Ducks but went 0-for-5 against Fleury.We have to be better, thats the message they sent, DeBoer said. And weve got to respond to that.
