LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers are starting to find ways to overcome their own mistakes.They proved it against the floundering Los Angeles Kings http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/patrick-mahomes-ii-jersey , putting together their first winning streak of the season in the process.Oskar Lindblom had a goal and an assist as the Flyers defeated the Kings 5-2 on Thursday night.Ivan Provorov scored for the second straight game and the Flyers won consecutive games for the first time. Brian Elliott made 25 saves, and Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds each had a goal.“We’ve played pretty good hockey at different times,” coach Dave Hakstol said. “We just haven’t been consistent enough from one game to the next. And there’s been games we haven’t been consistent enough period to period. That’s what we’ve been able to do the last two nights is put consistent play together for 60 minutes.”Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and an assist, and Jeff Carter scored a power-play goal for the Kings, who have lost seven of eight. Los Angeles has allowed at least three goals in each of those eight games.Jack Campbell, who will be the starting goalie for three to six weeks as Jonathan Quick recovers from knee surgery, made 26 saves.Lindblom made it 3-1 at 14:05 of the second period when a video review determined he kicked the puck in off Kings defenseman Sean Walker’s stick, confirming the original call on the ice.Kovalchuk cut the deficit to 3-2 at 18:49, his fifth point in two games. Kovalchuk has two goals and three assists during that span.Giroux put the Flyers back up by two at 14:27 of the third Authentic Derwin James Jersey , and Robert Hagg added an empty-net goal at 16:49.“It’s not where we want it to be, but I think we’re doing lots of good things,” Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas said. “I think we’re stepping in the right direction.”The Flyers went in front 2-1 on Simmonds’ goal at 10:53 of the second, 49 seconds after Carter scored on a backhand following up his own rebound.Philadelphia mounted a similar response in a 3-2 win at Anaheim on Tuesday, with Nolan Patrick scoring the winner 21 seconds after the Flyers allowed the tying goal.“We’re learning from our mistakes earlier,” said center Sean Couturier, who had an assist. “It’s a long game and we’re getting some good response right after, and we need that. It’s a tight game, you’ve got to keep playing. The next line http://www.sandiegochargersteamonline.com/derwin-james-jersey , that’s two games in a row where we do a great job getting a big lead back.”While the Flyers have been better able to respond positively to those circumstances, Carter viewed allowing the goal so quickly as a reflection of the Kings’ largely stagnant play.“It’s just kind of the way things are going right now for us,” he said. “We need to stick together and use that positive momentum to our advantage. We’re getting it and we’re giving it right back. It’s tough right now.”Provorov put the Flyers ahead 1-0 at 17:35 of the first period, scoring in the slot on a one-timer from Dale Weise.Jordan Weal pressured defenseman Derek Forbort into losing the puck in the neutral zone, the kind of breakdowns Kings coach John Stevens said have been occurring too frequently.“A step slow with the puck, and a step slow checking to get the puck back, and too much time in your zone,” Stevens said. “Too many bad things happening.”NOTES: Flyers G Michal Neuvirth did not dress for what the team described as precautionary reasons. Calvin Pickard served as Elliott’s backup. … Kings D Paul LaDue is day to day after sustaining an upper-body injury in practice Wednesday. … Flyers forward Corban Knight will be out four months after undergoing surgery on his collarbone.UP NEXTFlyers: Visit the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.Kings: Continue their seven-game homestand Saturday against Columbus. The Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup last season, but it’s been some time since they’ve enjoyed a run like this.For that Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey , they can thank Nicklas Backstrom and Tom Wilson.The Capitals go for their eighth straight victory Sunday afternoon against the Anaheim Ducks.Article continues below ...Washington (15-7-3) extended its streak with a 6-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night. It’s the Capitals’ longest run since reeling off nine straight wins from Dec. 31, 2016 to Jan. 15, 2017.Backstrom led the way Friday with his second career hat trick and an assist. He’s been one key to Washington’s offense during the streak with 12 points (five goals, seven assists), and leads the team with 23 assists and 32 points this season.“I think he’s had a really strong year. For me, it’s the best I have seen him play through 20-plus games in the start of a season,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said of Backstrom.Backstrom has five goals in his last five matchups with the Ducks at Capital One Arena.Wilson chipped in with a short-handed goal in his 400th career game before drawing a match penalty for hitting the Devils’ Brett Seney from behind. Wilson, who had a 20-game suspension for an illegal check during the preseason reduced to 14 games, is expected to be in the lineup as the league announced Saturday that there will be no additional punishment for the hit.“Anytime I’m involved in contact Aaron Donald Jersey Elite , it’s assumed that I’m skating away and it’s a match penalty. It (stinks), but that’s what it is,” Wilson said Saturday. “I just have to keep trying to play my game and produce and help the team win. As we saw, I have to be very, very careful about any type of contact.”With six goals in a five-game scoring streak, Wilson is also tied with Backstrom for the team lead with 12 points during the Caps’ run.Anaheim (13-10-5) closes a five-game swing in search of its season-high fourth straight victory. Pontus Aberg scored late in the third period and Ryan Getzlaf found the back of the net on a breakaway in overtime of a 2-1 victory against the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday.“We’re finding ways,” Getzlaf told the team’s official website. “Tonight was one of the ugliest games we played on the trip. We found a way, got one late and our goaltender was outstanding.”Getzlaf, who leads the team with 19 points (seven goals http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/aaron-donald-jersey , 12 assists) was talking about John Gibson. He’s turned aside 75 of 78 shots while winning each of his last two starts and has seen the team evolve.“It kind of seemed like at the beginning of the year we were finding ways to lose,” he told the Orange County Register after a 34-save effort Friday. “You’re starting to see we’re finding a way to win some games we thought we were maybe out of and maybe shouldn’t have won.”But Gibson has given up eight goals while losing each of his last two starts in Washington. Ryan Miller, who made 34 saves in a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday, needs one win to tie John Vanbiesbrouck for most by a goaltender born in the United States with 374.Washington superstar Alex Ovechkin has goals in four straight games and has 19 on the season. He has one goal in his last five games against Anaheim, and 11 points (seven goals, four assists) during the Caps’ winning streak.
