There are softer landing spots for one’s first start in goal than Nashville Valtteri Filppula Jersey Womens , but the Arizona Coyotes might not have a choice in this matter.If starter Antti Raanta can’t recover from a lower-body injury that knocked him out of a 4-3 win Tuesday night in Minnesota, backup Adin Hill would make his first start of the season and just the fifth start of his NHL career Thursday night against the Predators in Bridgestone Arena.Hill, who stopped five third period shots to pick up the win over the Wild, is 2-3-0 in six NHL games with a 3.04 goals-against average and an .896 save percentage. The 6-6, 202-pound Hill is just 22 years old and is coming off his own lower-body injury that recently cost him four weeks of playing time in the minors.Article continues below …“It’s the NHL, so each game for me is still very exciting and fun,” Hill said. “But I’m feeling a little bit more comfortable here now and I think I’m adjusting to the pace a bit more with every game.”Hill was called up from Arizona’s AHL affiliate in Tucson when Coyotes backup Darcy Kuemper fell victim to his own lower-body injury that will keep him out until at least Saturday, when St. Louis visits Gila River Arena.Given the circumstances, Arizona’s rally in Minnesota might have constituted its best win of the season. Trailing 3-1 with their starting goalie out, the Coyotes’ 30th-ranked offense produced three third period goals against the normally solid Devan Dubnyk to steal two points, Josh Archibald supplying the winning goal at 8:39.“I like the resiliency,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said. “A couple of guys were struggling early and we kind of regained ourselves in the third, so that’s nice. When you’re down 3-1 going into the third period Fredrik Claesson Jersey Womens , hopefully in an 82-game schedule you’re going to win some of those.”It was the first win for the Coyotes (10-11-2) since a 2-1 decision over Nashville on Nov. 15 in Glendale. While they’ve had the Predators’ number in the desert, winning five of their last six meetings at home, Arizona hasn’t come out of Music City with a win since March 28, 2013, when it was still known as the Phoenix Coyotes.Nashville (17-7-1) is coming off a 3-2 loss Tuesday night to Colorado that snapped two lengthy winning streaks. The Predators entered the match with six straight home victories and 11 consecutive wins over the Avalanche, but failed to extend those streaks despite a 38-25 advantage in shots on goal.“I thought that we had enough chances to win the game,” Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne said, “but I have to give them credit. Their power play was very effective tonight. It’s a good team. Obviously, it’s disappointing when it’s a division game and you come up short and it’s played at home, but we battled until the end and just couldn’t get the tying goal.”It’s the third game in a five-game homestand for the Predators, which still lead the Central Division by three points over Colorado. ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A goaltender who was winless in his previous 21 decisions outplayed an All-Star down the stretch Friday night.Cory Schneider got his first win in nearly 14 months when Nico Hischier scored 3:19 into overtime, lifting the New Jersey Devils to a wild 5-4 victory over the slumping Minnesota Wild.Hischier Dylan DeMelo Jersey Womens , Marcus Johansson and Kyle Palmieri each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who won for the second time in eight games. Will Butcher and Ben Lovejoy also scored.“We’ve talked a lot about when things aren’t going well and adversity strikes it’s up to the way we care about each other and tonight showed that,” Palmieri said. “It was our culture coming out and believing in each other.”Schneider had 15 saves in relief of Keith Kinkaid, including three in overtime. He allowed five goals Thursday in Chicago and was 0-17-4 since his last win on Dec. 27, 2017.“Sometimes things happen in a strange way, but I was more excited for our team just to show some mettle and to come back and win a tough game after a tough trip,” Schneider said. “It was nice to see us get rewarded as a group. For anybody who knows me, I’m not overly emotional one way or another. I think everyone else was more excited about it than I was.”In overtime, Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk’s errant pass behind the net was picked off by Palmieri. Dubnyk made a save before Hischier whacked in a loose puck to complete an improbable comeback.Dubnyk, who played in his third All-Star game last month, has allowed 10 goals in the last two games, both losses that included Minnesota blowing a multi-goal lead.“They’re finding their way in. It’s frustrating,” he said. “We probably deserved four points out of the last two games and we only got one. Got to find a way.”Coach Bruce Boudreau was non-committal when asked if Dubnyk will start Sunday against St. Louis.“It’ll be a conversation that the coaches and the goalie coach have tomorrow and the GM and we’ll see what transpires Gabriel Gagne Jersey Womens ,” Boudreau said. “There’s a couple things. We’re not blind. We saw how they went in, but the other thing that bothers me is we do this all the time, we get them down and you don’t get that killer instinct and you stop playing and you try to defend all the time and it’s a losing way to play.”Playing for the third time in four nights, New Jersey trailed 4-1 late in the second period before Butcher scored off a deflected pass. Palmieri added a power-play goal midway through the third.Lovejoy scored with 2:45 left in regulation when he beat Dubnyk with a low slap shot from the left circle.Mikael Granlund and Brad Hunt each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, which dropped to 1-4-3 in its past eight games. Joel Eriksson Ek and Nick Seeler also scored, and Ryan Suter had two assists.The Wild are clinging to the final playoff wild card in the jumbled Western Conference.Hunt scored a power-play goal and Eriksson Ek turned a gaffe by Kinkaid behind his net into an easy wraparound for a 2-0 lead midway through the first.Johansson converted a one-timer 26 seconds into the second before Seeler and Granlund scored to increase Minnesota’s lead to 4-1 and end Kinkaid’s night with 13 saves.NOTES: New Jersey is 2-18-2 when trailing after the first period. … The Devils placed C Blake Coleman (upper body) on injured reserve and activated LW Miles Wood off IR. Coleman has 18 goals, second-best on the team. … Play was stopped in the first period when, prior to a TV timeout, the Wild ice crew opened the Zamboni door thinking Dubnyk held onto the puck after a save during a New Jersey forecheck.UP NEXTDevils: Open a three-game homestand Sunday against Buffalo.Wild: Host St. Louis on Sunday.
