NEW YORK — It took four games for the New York Rangers‘ David Quinn to get his first win as an NHL coach Authentic Greg Joseph Jersey , and when it finally happened, his team presented him with the puck to mark the achievement.There may not be any celebratory pucks for getting the second win, but Quinn and the Rangers hope they do not have a long wait for the next victory.The Rangers get a chance to follow up their first win of the season Saturday afternoon when they host the Edmonton Oilers.Article continues below ...New York hired Quinn from Boston University to oversee its first rebuilding attempt after missing the playoffs last season for only the second time in 13 seasons since the infamous 2004-05 lockout. Quinn replaced Alain Vigneault, who coached a mostly veteran team for the previous five seasons.The Rangers expected some growing pains but did not think it would take four games to get the first win. They nearly did not get it Thursday against the San Jose Sharks, but defenseman Brendan Smith scored the tying goal with 2:39 remaining in regulation and fellow blue-liner Brady Skjei scored 37 seconds into overtime to turn a potential one-goal loss into a 3-2 victory.Those goals came on a night when Henrik Lundqvist withstood a barrage of shots at times and notched his 432nd career win while turning in a 41-save performance.“The players made me do that (realize this was the first win) when they brought me in the locker room and gave me the puck, so that was pretty special,” Quinn said. “I wish I could divide the puck into about 45 pieces because it was certainly a great win for us. We needed to feel good about something and obviously Myles Garrett Jersey Elite , Hank (Lundqvist) stood tall for two periods. He gave us a chance tonight for sure.”Rookie Brett Howden scored the other goal for New York and also forced the turnover by the Sharks’ Erik Karlsson that led to the game-winner.Quinn’s first win marked the first time a Rangers defensemen scored the tying goal in regulation and the overtime winner since March 24, 2014, vs. the Arizona Coyotes when Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh did it. It also came on a night when the Rangers consistently allowed odd-man rushes through 40 minutes, including one on San Jose’s second goal.“We kept getting behind them and establishing the offensive zone and not forcing plays,” Quinn said. “That’s been a problem for us. The first three games of the season, our problem is we create our own problems by forcing plays. I thought the third period we started doing things we’re going to have to do to have success.”The defense gave up those rushes while Kevin Shattenkirk sat out as a healthy scratch. The benching was a one-game thing as Shattenkirk is expected to return Saturday after accumulating a minus-4 rating in the first three games.While the Rangers avoided their first 0-4 start since the 1998-99 season, the Oilers remained the league’s only team without a point. The Oilers began the season with a 5-2 loss to New Jersey last Saturday in Sweden and then dropped a 4-1 decision to the Boston Bruins Thursday.Connor McDavid scored the first goal 3:43 into the game against the Bruins Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey , but the Oilers allowed consecutive power-play goals and three in the first period. McDavid has been involved in Edmonton’s first three goals of the season, and although it is two games in there are concerns about others not being able to get prime scoring chances.“The Grade A chances are only coming from three or four individuals, and it has to get an awful lot deeper than that for us to have offensive success,” Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. “That can come from the blue line or wingers on different lines. That could come from the blue line. It seems when we get a little more desperate or fall behind, we find a player or two offensively, but we need them early in the game as well.”McLellan’s call for offense early on is correct as the Oilers try to avoid their third 0-3 start in the last five seasons. The Oilers allowed four goals in the first period in their first two games combined and have led for a total of 5:37 so far.“Any team that can get off to a good start puts themselves in a good position,” McLellan said. “We’re 0-2 right now Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite , we’re not happy about that but we’ve got to keep pushing and we’ll have a big game Saturday against the Rangers.”The Rangers are on a five-game winning streak against the Oilers since taking a 7-5 loss Dec. 11, 2015, in Edmonton. It is New York’s longest win streak against Edmonton in team history. BOSTON (AP) — Carey Price knew he had a lot of help in front of him and was more than willing to credit them.Price stopped 33 shots for his first shutout of the season, collecting his 290th career win with Montreal to move into second place in team history in the Canadiens’ 3-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.“Shutouts should be a team stat, really,” he said. “Everybody did an excellent job on defense tonight.”Price moved ahead of Hall of Famer Patrick Roy and is now only behind Jacques Plante — another Hall of Famer — who collected 314 victories with the Canadiens.Brendan Gallagher and Max Domi scored 1:21 apart midway into the first period and Price took over from there.“We did what we had to do in the third period to protect the lead and get the win,” said Canadiens coach Claude Julien http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/myles-garrett-jersey , who coached Boston’s 2011 Stanley Cup-winning team.The Canadiens snapped a six-game losing streak against the Bruins, with the last victory coming at home on November 8, 2016. It was Price’s 41st career shutout.“It’s always nice to get that,” he said of the shutout. “A little bit of icing on the cake.”The Bruins lost for the first time at home this season after winning their first four – all in regulation. They were the last NHL team to lose at home. Tuukka Rask made 20 saves.Gallagher gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead 9:18 into the game when he beat Rask on a tough-angle shot. The winger fired a wrister from the right circle that slipped into the net between Rask’s left arm and the post.During a delayed penalty, Domi’s hustle led to his goal that made it 2-0 at 10:39. Artturi Lehkonen was hooked breaking in alone and the puck slid behind the net where it collected it and sent it out front. Domi charged in, got the puck and shifted Rask out of position before firing it into the net under the cross bar.The game lacked any real intensity in the first meeting of the season between the longtime rivals; mainly because Montreal dominated defensively, limiting Boston’s chances with tight defense.“There’s a lot of things that we didn’t do http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey ,” Boston’s Patrice Bergeron said. “Obviously, he’s a great goalie, but I don’t think his job was very hard tonight.”The Bruins pulled Rask with just under three minutes to play for an extra skater, and even that didn’t get them any good scoring chances before Jordie Benn banked home any empty-netter with 29 seconds left.Boston’s Ryan Donato had a goal waved off early in the second period after a coach’s challenge. The play was ruled offside after a replay review.Boston’s lack of offensive punch in the opening two periods did very little to excite the sold-out crowd. Even a video showing Red Sox highlights only brought loud cheers for a few seconds.“They have a lot of smaller forwards who are able to get in on the forecheck and force teams to make plays they don’t want to,” Boston defenseman Matt Grzelcyk said. “They did that to us pretty well tonight.”Montreal’s defense did a good job of giving up most of the shots from far outside where Price was able to handle them easily. The Bruins’ best bid came in the closing seconds of second period when Price made a splendid glove save on Joakim Nordtsrom’s wrist shot.NOTES: Domi extended his point streak to six games (five goals, three assists). … Bruins D Charlie McAvoy and F David Backes each missed their fourth straight game with what the team called an upper body injury. … Price entered with a solid regular season record in his career against Boston: 24-11-5 with a 2.42 goals-against average. … It was the Bruins’ 390h straight sellout at TD Garden.UP NEXTCanadiens: Host the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.Bruins: At the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.
