OTTAWA Gabriel Gagne Jersey Womens , Ontario (AP) — The Ottawa Senators played with heavy hearts after the death of longtime equipment assistant Mike Foley to colon cancer.Hours before the puck dropped Saturday night, the Senators learned of Foley’s death.“He was a great soldier for us for 20 odd years,” said Mark Stone, who scored twice in Ottawa’s 6-4 victory over Pittsburgh.Former Ottawa general manager Bryan Murray died from colon cancer in August 2017 at 74, and goalie Craig Anderson played the 2016-17 season while supporting his wife, Nicholle, in her successful fight against a rare form of throat cancer.Matt Duchene, who had a three-point night with two goals and an assist James Van Riemsdyk Jersey Womens , spoke of the team’s desire to honor Foley with a win and coming out with a solid effort against a team of Pittsburgh’s pedigree.“That’s a good team that can score goals and they threw what they had at us in the third,” Duchene said. “We earned it through the first two and obviously kept going so it was a big win. We lost one of our own. We’re all kind of hurting in here and thinking about his family so it was good to get a win for him.”Brady Tkachuk and Cody Ceci added goals, and Anderson made 31 saves. The Senators have won two straight to improve to 9-8-3.Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby missed his second straight game because of an upper-body injury. The Penguins are 1-7-1 in their last nine and 7-8-3 overall.Kris Letang, Zach Aston-Reese, Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist scored for Pittsburgh. Matt Murray allowed three goals on 10 shots in the first period, and Casey DeSmith gave up three goals on 15 shots in relief.“We can’t be sorry for ourselves,” Letang said. “We have all the skill in the world, but right now it’s not working Matt Cullen Jersey Womens , so maybe put the puck at the net and make it look a little bit nasty out there.”After struggling through the first two periods and finding themselves down four goals, the Penguins rallied early in the third when Aston-Reese put in his first of the season and Cullen followed to make it 5-3.But Drake Batherson fed Duchene for a breakaway to make it 6-3. With just under four minutes remaining, the Penguins pulled DeSmith and were able to take advantage when Hornqvist tipped a shot past Anderson.NOTES:Ottawa’s Max McCormick and Christian Jaros were healthy scratches. … Derick Brassard returned to the Penguins’ lineup after missing nine games with a lower-body injury. Brassard returned to Ottawa for the first time since being acquired by Pittsburgh on Feb. 23.UP NEXT:Penguins: Host Buffalo on Monday night.Senators: Host Florida on Monday night. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Florida Panthers kicked off their longest road trip of the season with another victory.Aaron Ekblad and Evgenii Dadonov scored goals, Roberto Luongo made 29 saves and the Panthers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Tuesday night for their fifth straight win.“It’s starting to feel like toward the end of last season,” Luongo said, referring to a five-game winning streak that concluded a year in which the Panthers missed the playoffs. “We’re confident we can get a win no matter the situation,”Jakub Voracek had the lone goal for the Flyers, who had won three straight and five of six.Both teams have rebounded nicely after struggling early in the season. The Panthers are 7-5-3 Derek Grant Jersey Womens , while the Flyers are 9-8-1.Just eight seconds after Voracek tied the game, Luongo stoned him on a breakaway after Nolan Patrick won the face-off. Oskar Lindblom hit a post on a shot a few minutes later for Philadelphia.“I thought I had him but I was unlucky,” Lindblom said.Down 2-0 after two periods, the Flyers came out with energy to start the third. Voracek snapped a shot from the right side past Luongo for his fifth goal to cut the deficit in half.But they couldn’t get another one past the veteran.“They made a strong push, they were flying all over the ice and had us on our heels but Lu made a couple big saves,” Florida’s Mike Hoffman said.Ekblad scored his first goal this season to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead almost midway through the second period. Shortly after Ivan Provorov’s tripping penalty gave Florida a power play, Frank Vatrano deflected Hoffman’s slap shot and the puck trickled to the left side of the net. Ekblad flipped a backhander that hit goaltender Brian Elliott’s stick and glove before going into the net.“I was just trying to whack it toward the next and got lucky,” Ekblad said. “It has been a while. I never waited this long to score a goal at any level. It’s tough to stay resilient.”Hoffman has a point in 13 straight games Erik Karlsson Jersey Womens , tying Pavel Bure’s franchise.Dadonov made it 2-0 late in the second period on his eighth goal. He skated from his blue line up the ice and fired a wrister from just outside the right circle into the top shelf.“They’re a good, underrated team,” Flyers captain Claude Giroux said.NOTES: The Flyers beat the Panthers 6-5 in a shootout on Oct. 16. The teams meet one more time. … Panthers began a season-high six-game road trip. … Flyers played the middle game of a five-game homestand. … Dadonov has four goals in the last six games. He has six goals in seven career games against Philadelphia. … Ekblad hadn’t scored a goal since March 29 last season, when he recorded his career-best 16th goal. … Dadonov’s points streak has reached 12 games.… Florida has a power-play goal in six straight games.UP NEXTPanthers: Continue road trip at Columbus on Thursday night.Flyers: Continue homestand against New Jersey on Thursday night.
