DALLAS (AP) Reid Boucher and Nic Dowd are near the bottom of Vancouver’s scoring leaderboard Eric Tangradi Jersey Womens , with the Canucks sitting near the bottom of the standings.They combined to help Vancouver pull Dallas down toward the bottom Sunday night.Boucher and Dowd each scored on the power play in a 4-1 win over the reeling Dallas Stars, who are stuck in an 0-6-2 skid.It was the third goal of the season for each of Vancouver’s surprise contributors. Dowd wasn’t even supposed to be on the ice on the power play.”We were short a guy, and he jumped on the ice,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. ”I think I was yelling at him for going out there, and then yelling at him for scoring.”Jake Virtanen scored in the third period, and Tyler Motte added an empty-net goal with 41 seconds left.”It was nice to get contributions throughout our lineup,” Green said. ”Really four young guys getting on the scoresheet was nice.”Dallas’ Mattias Janmark scored a short-handed goal in the first period. Thirty seconds later on the same Vancouver power play, Boucher scored. All three of Boucher’s goals have come in the Canucks’ two games at Dallas.Vancouver shut down the Stars’ line of Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov, who had scored at least one goal in each of Dallas’ previous eight games.”They’re as good as it gets in the league,” Green said. ”We put the (Brandon) Sutter line against them as much as we could. (Goalie Jacob Markstrom) was great, made some big saves on those guys.”Markstrom had 30 saves, including one on a 2-on-1 rush in the first period.”(Michael) Del Zotto did a real good job of kind of forcing them to make a difficult pass,” Markstrom said. ”It was a slow pass to give me time to get over.”The Canucks, tied for 28th in the NHL ahead of only Arizona and Buffalo http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-casey-cizikas-jersey , won for the second time in 10 games.”You see the guys crack a smile now,” Dowd said. ”Regardless of where you are in the standings, you want to win every single night.”Dowd scored his goal with one second left on a four-minute power play in the second period.The Stars have all but fallen out of playoff contention. With six games remaining, they are five points behind St. Louis for the second wild card from the Western Conference. The eight-game losing streak is the longest since the Stars moved to Dallas in 1993.”We don’t deserve to win right now,” Stars defenseman John Klingberg said. ”We don’t have any confidence at all the way we’re playing right now.”Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock agreed.”I think when your scoring chances are all in the first half of the game and not in the second half, that’s kind of telling,” he said. ”I think losing does that, you do lose confidence.”Jussi Jokinen assisted on the Canucks’ first two goals.NOTES: Vancouver outscored the Stars 10-1 in the two games in Dallas. … Lehtonen stopped 23 shots. … Janmark’s short-handed goal was his second this season, Dallas’ second in two games and the Stars’ sixth this season. Vancouver has allowed six short-handed goals. … Jokinen began his career with Dallas in 2005 and has played for nine NHL teams, including four this season. He had his first two-point game since Dec. 15 for the Kings against the Rangers. … Canucks D Ashton Sautner made his NHL debut as an emergency call-up for Chris Tanev, who was injured in Friday’s game at St. Louis. Sautner was playing for Utica in the AHL, where he had spent all of his three pro seasons. ”I thought he was really good,” Green said. ”He didn’t panic.” … The Minnesota/Dallas franchise has had four eight-game losing streaks. The North Stars lost nine in a row from Jan. 17 to Feb. 4, 1970.UP NEXTCanucks: Begin their final homestand (five games) against Anaheim on Tuesday night.Stars: Finish a three-game homestand Tuesday night vs. Philadelphia.— COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets left Toronto on Monday night disappointed with the outcome of what they felt was a winnable road game.The Blue Jackets led 2-0 after one period Adam Pelech Jersey Womens , but several defensive mistakes cost them, and the Maple Leafs rallied for a 4-2 victory that ended Columbus’ three-game winning streak and a seven-game point streak.Four days later, the Blue Jackets (12-7-2) will have an opportunity to right their wrongs when the two teams face off in a rematch on Friday night at Nationwide Arena.Article continues below ...Toronto comes in one point behind first-place Tampa Bay in the Atlantic Division and the Blue Jackets are tied atop the Metropolitan Division with the New York Rangers.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella was clearly perturbed with the manner in which his team lost in Toronto. A defensive mistake on a faceoff left Toronto’s Morgan Rielly open on the left point and he buried the winning goal.“We played well enough to win,” Tortorella said, “and not to get a point out of it off just a simple coverage off a faceoff, it just (ticks) you off.“It’s pee-wee coverage and we didn’t handle it. It’s frustrating.”The Maple Leafs (15-7-0) played a game between the two against the Blue Jackets, falling 5-2 on Wednesday night to the Carolina Hurricanes. Toronto had won four straight and nine of its last 10 on the road.John Tavares scored one of Toronto’s two goals and Frederik Andersen (12-6-0), whose 12 wins leads the NHL, made 40 saves but lost for the first time in his last seven starts.Tavares leads the Maple Leafs with 14 goals in his first season with the team and Mitch Marner has team bests of 22 assists and 28 points.As the Maple Leafs did against the Blue Jackets, they fell behind the Hurricanes in the first period, but this time they weren’t able to catch up.“Bottom line is we didn’t get what we wanted here,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock told reporters “Ideally, it’s a good lesson for all of us. If we’re not prepared, we have no chance at success, and we’ll move on.”The Blue Jackets’ recent success has revolved around its top line Thomas Hickey Jersey Womens , led by winger Cam Atkinson, and improved play from goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky (7-7-0).Atkinson contributed a goal and an assist in the loss to the Maple Leafs, extending his goal and point streaks to a career-best five games with the first score of the game.In the past five games, Atkinson has racked up seven goals three assists for 10 points. Named the NHL’s First Star of the Week, Atkinson is now tied with Artemi Panarin for the team points lead with 22.“I’m putting myself in good positions,” Atkinson told The Columbus Dispatch. “I think that’s plain and simple. My linemates are making good passes and I’m just burying them.”Linemate Pierre-Luc Dubois has 10 goals and nine assists for 19 points, and Panarin has four assists in the past two games.“We’re just playing confident,” Atkinson said. “We know where each other is going to be on the ice, in the offensive zone especially, and we’re working off each other. We’re close to each other, supporting each other, and I think that makes a really big difference for us.”
