if ( typeof SN_Infinite_Scroll_Data === ‘undefined’ || typeof SN_Infinite_Scroll_Data.valid === ‘undefined’ || SN_Infinite_Scroll_Data.valid !== ‘1’ ) { // Inject the ads with a unique index so that we can render multiple ads per article. var increment = 0; var index = $(‘div[id=ad_bigbox_within_articles]’).length; var inline_bigbox = “\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\n\t\n\n”; inline_bigbox = $(inline_bigbox).html().replace(/\{increment\}/g, “0”).replace(/\{index\}/g, index); document.write(inline_bigbox); adUtility.insertAd(“bigbox_inline_ad_” + increment + “_” + index, {type: adUtility._AD_BIGBOX }); } Rielly finally evened the score with 1:13 to play in the second, with his shot from the sideboards beating a screened Smith blocker side.Said Leafs head coach Mike Babcock: “That’s junior hockey stuff. He’ll learn over time … No reason for that stuff.”Most rookies struggle a bit defensively, and Jankowski is no exception there as he has higher than average turnover rates in each zone, but his ability to get the puck back is a huge advantage for his team, and it’s relatively rare for one player to be either leading or top two in loose-puck recoveries in every zone.

Calgary Flames’ Mark Jankowski, right, has lived up to expectations in his first NHL season. (Jeff McIntosh/The Canadian Press)Adam Henrique scored twice as he opened the scoring with his first goal as a member of the Anaheim Ducks. He had assists in three straight games and now has a four game points streak for the Ducks with two goals and three helpers.

After his playing days, Lou was a long-time scout for the New York Rangers. It was always special when Lou would make his way east and drop by to watch Mark play in his AAA minor games.“We were sluggish. And I thought they played us a lot harder than they played us in Calgary (last Tuesday, when the Leafs won 4-1).”

To be clear, this was simply the Leafs’ first home game since the Grey Cup, and they probably would have honored the Argos no matter who they were playing tonight, but at the very least, this was a perfect little coincidence. I don’t have a horse in this race, and I’m normally loath to compliment the Leafs for anything, but that fumble was too wild to pass up any opportunity at rubbing it in. Finally, Canada has its own “The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead” joke.Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said of Andersen, “I thought he was good. When you look at the game by both teams, whether this means anything or not, you’re attempting like 70 shots, it’s ridiculous almost. But the neutral zone was clogged up and there weren’t a lot of quality chances until the end.”

The veteran netminder fell two saves shy of his career-high of 49 that he set on March 3, 2014 while he was with the Anaheim Ducks.

“If you play with him, you know how he is,” Toronto’s Mitch Marner said of Tkachuk, his former junior linemate with the London Knights. “He jokes around a lot and likes to have a lot of fun. But on the ice he’s a guy not a lot of people like.”They said it”I thought in the third period, that was the period I’m most happy about. I think our team carried the play in the third in a tight game and made plays under pressure. We had looks right until the last buzzer really. Overtime is fun, 3-on-3 back and forth and then we lose in a shootout but I thought we played well tonight.” — Flames captain Mark Giordano

Calgary Flames at Toronto Maple Leafs [Game 28]

Toronto Maple Leafs center William Nylander (29) celebrates his goal against the Calgary Flames during the shootout in an NHL hockey game, Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017 in Toronto. (Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press via AP)Jankowski isn’t about to be Patrice Bergeron, but his two-way play is very strong for a player on a third line, and gives the normally top-heavy Flames a bit of balance that they’ve been without for awhile.
“I thought we were really flat the last time we played them,” Giordano said. “We didn’t play our game at all. For whatever reason, we didn’t have enough energy.”

William Nylander scored the winner in the fourth round of the shootout, deking to the backhand to beat Mike Smith.

Laurent Brossoit made 29 saves and is 1-5-1 this season.Calgary held the Maple Leafs scoreless until a minute and 14 seconds were left in the second period. Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Reilly erased the deficit as Toronto provided Andersen, who held Calgary in check since the 10 minute mark of the first period, with much needed support. From there, the two teams were gridlocked.
