Rekomendowane odpowiedzi

g on home ice for the St. Louis Blues spilled over into practice on Monday as defenseman Robert Bortuzzo and forward Zach Sanford got into a fight during a battle drill.The tussle took place at the end of practice. The players were separated by assistant coach Steve Ott.“Guys are frustrated and they should be Nico Hischier Jersey ,” Blues interim coach Craig Berube told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Sometimes in practice it boils over and things happen. … They do care. I know these guys care, and that’s what happens because they do care and want to be successful.”Article continues below ...Blues forward Pat Maroon looked at it as a positive.“You’ve got to enjoy it,” Maroon told the Post-Dispatch. “That’s part of hockey, right? We’re still teammates. Sometimes people get heated and frustrations build up. I love that stuff. I think it’s great. That’s me though. I don’t know if anyone else likes it.”The Blues, fresh off a 6-1 drubbing against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday, hope to take that fight into their next game as they host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.And they could be getting back forward Jaden Schwartz for the game. Schwartz has missed the last 11 games after getting hit in the hand by a shot from teammate Vladimir Tarasenko in a Nov. 16 game at Vegas.“I’m feeling better,” Schwartz told the Post-Dispatch. “This last week, I’d say I’ve made strides. We’ll see how it feels in the morning Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens , but I feel like I’m getting close.“We’ll see how it feels in the morning and try a couple more things out and then make a decision right after that.”The Blues also made a change in the nets, as Jordan Binnington was called up from AHL-San Antonio after the loss the Vancouver loss. Backup Chad Johnson has been put on waivers.Berube would not say whether Binnington or starter Jake Allen, who was pulled on Sunday, would start against the Panthers.The Blues have lost three of their last four games. St. Louis lost both games against Florida last season.The Panthers enter the game off a 5-4 shootout loss to the New York Rangers. They have also lost three of their last four games.Panthers left winger Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and two assists to reach 301 career points in 413 NHL games in the loss.“We got one point, but obviously we need two points,” Huberdeau told NHL.com. “I think we had nine points out of 16 at home. So we just have to take the positives of it and go on the road. Make sure we’re ready to go in St. Louis (on Tuesday).”Florida came out slow, but overcame a two-goal deficit to force overtime against the Rangers.“We had chances to win the game, but they did Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey ,” Panthers center Aleksander Barkov told NHL.com. “So we’re not happy because of that. We’re happy with how we played. … In this league, if you come out the way we did in the first period, it can cost you the whole game.” If the Philadelphia Flyers and Florida Panthers are even in points, regulation and overtime wins, and goal differential at the end of the season, they will play a one-game tiebreaker to determine who goes to the playoffs.The NHL announced the unlikely but possible tiebreaker Friday as Philadelphia had one game and Florida two remaining. For the tiebreaker to happen on Tuesday, the Flyers would need to lose their regular-season finale Saturday against the New York Rangers by exactly two goals and the Panthers would need to beat the Buffalo Sabres and the Boston Bruins in a shootout Saturday and Sunday.In that case, Philadelphia and Florida would each have 39 regulation/overtime wins and a plus-1 goal differential over the season Authentic Taylor Hall Jersey , since a shootout victory counts as a goal. The teams split their season series (which by rule eliminates the odd game between them to even out home ice) and the league does not have any further tiebreakers.Philadelphia has 96 points to Florida’s 92 and needs just a point against New York to clinch the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.This most recently happened in 2000 when the NHL announced Montreal and Buffalo would play a tiebreaking game if they finished the season tied for the final spot in the East. It did not come down to that, but it’s the precedent the league used to make this decision.The league contacted the teams and the NHL Players’ Association before announcing the plan. After a coin flip was the mechanism in 2000, a lottery machine such as the one that determines the top three draft picks would be used this time to decide which team gets home-ice advantage.Panthers general manager Dale Tallon declined comment and a Flyers spokesman said GM Ron Hextall was not speaking about the tiebreaker.Given the tightness of the standings in the East and West, it’s likely this situation spawns a longer list of tiebreakers beginning next season. Records against common opponents and within the conference could be used, as they are in the NFL.—
