EDMONTON Viktor Arvidsson Jersey , Alberta (AP) The Florida Panthers put together a strong finish Monday night. Vincent Trocheck led the way.Trocheck had three goals in the third period and Evgenii Dadonov scored twice, powering the Panthers to a 7-5 victory over Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers.”You don’t see many seven-goal games out of us,” said Trocheck, who recorded his first career NHL hat trick. ”I think we have only had two or three games with more than five goals this year. It was nice to see a bit of an outburst on offense.”To beat a team like that and play the way we did, it was a good way to start off this road trip.”Aaron Ekblad and Denis Malgin also scored for the Panthers, who have won five of their last six games. James Reimer made 27 saves.”It was kind of a weird game,” Reimer said. ”It wasn’t exactly a goalie’s duel. I don’t think either goalie would be too excited about being in a 7-5 game. I just kept digging in and told myself to make the next save and hang in there.”Edmonton dropped its fourth straight game. Connor McDavid and Patrick Maroon each had a goal and an assist for the Oilers, and Leon Draisaitl Robin Lehner Jersey Womens , Drake Caggiula and Anton Slepyshev also scored.Oilers goalie Cam Talbot, who was peppered with 39 shots, took on much of the blame.”I’d say about four of them I’d like to have back,” he said. ”Any time you go out and score five goals, you should win a game every night. I didn’t give us a chance to win tonight.”Every time I let one in, we got one back, but I just couldn’t find that next save to give us a chance.”Florida scored four times in the third after the game was tied at 3 after two.Trocheck went in alone and beat Talbot for a tiebreaking power-play goal 18 seconds into the period. He then made it 5-3 with another power-play goal at 6:05, and tacked on an empty-netter with a minute left for his 21st of the season.Before Trocheck’s scoring display in the third Authentic Cory Schneider Jersey Fanatics Branded: New Adidas Breakaway Womens Youth New Jersey Devils NHL Jerseys , the Panthers and Oilers exchanged goals for most of the night.Florida opened the scoring with 2:14 left in the first period when a shot came off the boards and Ekblad banked it in off Oilers defender Oscar Klefbom. It was the first of three power-play goals in four chances for the Panthers.Maroon then tied it at 1 when he jumped on his own rebound and beat Reimer for his 14th goal at 18:35.The Oilers took the lead early in the second when Draisaitl was awarded a penalty shot after being hauled down by Florida’s Mike Matheson on a short-handed breakaway. He made good on the opportunity with his 16th of the year.The Panthers pulled even six minutes into the period when Malgin was left alone in the slot and scored on a shot that went off Talbot’s glove.The Oilers jumped back in front when Caggiula tipped in a Kris Russell point shot midway through the second. But the Panthers replied 23 seconds later on a goal from the slot by Dadonov.McDavid scored his 23rd goal at 14:58 of the third, trimming Florida’s lead to 6-5, but the Panthers held on.NOTES: Jonathan Huberdeau, Keith Yandle and Matheson each had two assists for Florida.UP NEXTPanthers: Visit Vancouver on Wednesday.Oilers: Open a three-game trip at Vegas on Thursday. NEW YORK — The New York Islanders ended the quirkiest early-season schedule in the NHL by winning three straight road games in a span of four days. Now the task for the Islanders is to produce similar success in their first extended homestand of the 2018-19 campaign.The Islanders will look to remain hot Thursday night, when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins in an early-season battle for first place in the Metropolitan Division at Barclays Center.It will be the second straight game between the rivals. The Islanders earned a convincing win Tuesday night, when Jordan Eberle scored twice in a 6-3 win over the Penguins.Article continues below ...The victory capped an impressive road trip for the Islanders (6-4-1), who outscored a trio of division rivals — the Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes — by a 14-5 margin. With the win Tuesday Jesper Bratt Jersey Kids , New York (6-4-1) pulled within one point of Pittsburgh (6-2-2).“Good team over there (and) they (are) going to be ticked off,” Islanders center Anders Lee told reporters following practice Wednesday. “We’re expecting an absolute response and we’ve got to be ready to go.”Eberle said the Islanders are focused on avoiding a letdown as they return home for a three-game homestand. New York, which will face the New Jersey Devils on Saturday and the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, played just three home games in October.“A lot of times you go on the road and you have a good road trip, you come home and you’re a little bit lackadaisical,” Eberle told reporters Wednesday. “We’ve got to be back on the ball (Thursday).”The Penguins are hoping to get a little more good fortune than they did Tuesday, when the Islanders scored their six goals on just 25 shots. One of Eberle’s goals was scored on a breakaway after he collided with left winger Carl Hagelin.“I don’t think we gave them a ton of opportunities, but the few they had went in the net Leo Komarov Jersey Womens ,” Penguins defenseman Jack Johnson told reporters afterward. “There’s a lesson to be learned from that.”Thomas Greiss will start at goalie for the Islanders, who lost starter Robin Lehner to what the team is calling a “strain” after the second period Tuesday. Greiss preserved Lehner’s win by stopping 12 of 13 shots.The Penguins’ starter is unknown after Matt Murray was pulled midway through the second period Tuesday in favor of Casey DeSmith. Murray took the loss after giving up four goals on just nine shots before DeSmith made 14 saves.“Sometimes you make the change. It’s not so much about the goalie as it is about the rest of the group,” Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan told reporters afterward. “We just thought it was the right thing to do at that particular time. I don’t fault Matt for the goals.”Greiss is 3-1-0 in six career games against the Penguins. Murray is 2-3-0 in five appearances against the Islanders. DeSmith faced New York for the first time Tuesday night.
