going to have some

Postby hongwei28 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 9:37 pm

The New Jersey Devils say forwards Taylor Hall and Patrick Maroon and goaltender Cory Schneider have had surgeries since the playoffs ended for them last month.

The team said Tuesday that Hall and Maroon are expected to be ready for the start of training camp Marshall Newhouse Jersey , while Schneider may need five months to recover from surgery to repair a torn cartilage in his left hip.

Hall, who had a career season in leading the Devils to their first playoff berth since 2012, had surgery on Apr. 30 to repair torn ligaments in his left hand. He suffered the injury in late December but played the rest of the season. It was not the injury that kept him out of the All-Star Game in January.

Hall is one of the three finalists for the Hart Trophy, which is presented to the NHL’s MVP, and the Ted Lindsay Award, which recognizes the league’s most outstanding player. He had 39 goals, 54 assists and 93 points for New Jersey, which was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Schneider had his surgery last week. Dr. Bryan Kelly at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York estimated Schneider might be ready to play just before the season starts.

Schneider posted a 17-16-6 record with a 2.93 goals-against average in a season that saw him sidelined for an extended time between late January and March. He lost his starting job to Keith Kinkaid in that span but started the final three games of the postseason and played well.

Maroon underwent surgery last week to repair a herniated disk in his back. Dr. Andrew Sama at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York believes Maroon will be able to resume offseason training and preparation programs before the start of training camp.

Maroon had three goals and 10 assists after being acquired from Edmonton before the trade deadline. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

NOTES: The Devils later announced that defenseman Brian Strait signed a two-year, two-way contract with an average annual salary of $675,000 at the NHL level. The 30-year-old spent last season in Binghamton (AHL) Adolphus Washington Jersey , collecting three goals and five assists.



More NHL hockey: Jon Cooper is confident the Tampa Bay Lightning will be fine.

Experience tells the coach and his players they shouldn’t be overly concerned about losing the opening game of the Eastern Conference finals at home.

The way the Washington Capitals are playing, though, it could be more difficult to rebound from a shabby performance this time.

Game 2 is Sunday night, and Cooper expects the Atlantic Division winners to be at their best.

”It’s unfortunate how we played a couple of these Game 1s in the last couple of rounds, (and) dug ourselves a small hole this series,” the coach said after a workout Saturday at the team’s suburban practice facility.

”I guess the positive side is we’ve been here before, so we’ve seen this. But we can’t keep playing with fire and dropping these Game 1s, which we’ve done. All of a sudden you’ve thrown home ice advantage back at them. Now you’ve put pressure on yourself. You got to go win games on the road, which you have to do anyway in the playoffs, but your margin for error gets smaller and smaller. We’re really going to need a good effort (Sunday).”

The Capitals won the opener 4-2 Adam Thielen Jersey , ending an eight-game playoff losing skid to Tampa Bay dating to the 2003 postseason.

Alex Ovechkin, T.J. Oshie, Jay Beagle and Lars Eller scored for Washington, while rejuvenated goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 19 shots to help the Caps improve to 6-1 on the road this postseason.

The Lightning didn’t take solace in breaking through for a pair of third-period goals.

”We dissected the game a little bit,” Cooper said. ”There were so many good things we’ve done in two rounds of hockey that I think if you bottled up all the bad things in those first 10 games it would be about half of what we did in that one game last night.

”You fueled the fire of a good team, and that’s what Washington is. I thought a lot of their opportunities we just handed to them, and a lot of our opportunities were stomped out just by our not sticking to our plan of what’s worked.”

The Capitals, in the conference finals for the first time in the Ovechkin era, said they can’t afford a drop-off in performance.

Beating two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh gave them momentum heading into the series.

Coach Barry Trotz, mindful that Tampa Bay lost Game 1 of its second-round series 6-2 to Boston only to strom back and win four straight games Josh Sitton Jersey , reiterated it won’t be easy to build off the Caps’ success in the opener.

”You get a little bit of confidence, obviously,” Trotz said at the team hotel Saturday. ”At the same time we’ve got to realize Tampa Bay is going to have some desperation in their game. And, we better have some desperation in our game.”

Andrei Vasilevskiy, Tampa Bay’s All-Star goaltender, yielded four goals on 25 shots in two periods after entering the series with an 8-2 record, 2.20 goals-against average and .927 save percentage through two rounds.

The Lightning are confident they’ll play better in front of him in Game 2. The Caps expect the goaltender to bounce back, too.

”One thing you got to remember, this is not the NCAA basketball tournament, it’s not one and done Max Unger Jersey ,” Cooper said. ”It’s the best of seven, so you get a chance to make some adjustments to improve your game and really get a look at the other team. … It’s hard to play flawless hockey all the way through.”

The Caps don’t expect the Lightning to panic, either.

”Obviously, it doesn’t matter what we did in Game 1 when it comes to Game 2,” Beagle said.

”I would imagine there will be a really good push back from a really good hockey team. We’re going to have to stay focused, not get ahead of ourselves,” Oshie concluded. ”I can’t imagine we’re going to see the same Tampa team we saw in the first period the rest of this series.”
