come out on top. It is nice for our team to win in different ways, it

The Pittsburgh Penguins are hoping to hang on tight to what happened early in the third period in their game Tuesday. The New York Islanders are hoping to forget the early part of their most recent third period.The two teams clash Thursday at PPG Paints Arena in PittsburghPatric Hornqvist proclaimed that the Penguins (11-10-5) reached a turning point for the better Tuesday after he scored a natural hat trick in a span of 2:47 — a club record for a hat trick — in the third period of a 6-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche.Article continues below ...Pittsburgh had taken a 3-0 lead in the first period but gave up three goals in the second. The win broke a two-game losing streak.“I think our response (Tuesday) night is something that we need to (replicate) moving forward. I don’t think we’ve done it in the past New Jersey Devils Hats Authentic ,” Penguins winger Zach Aston-Reese said Wednesday. “(It) was a great response from us. I think as a group we’ll be able to bottle that up.”Pittsburgh won the Stanley Cup in 2016 and 2017 but has had trouble even remaining in a playoff spot this season. The team is not satisfied with its lack of consistency.The Penguins are hoping Hornqvist provided the spark and the accurate prediction they needed.“You have to be able to roll with the punches when you’re not having success and find ways to work yourself out of it, and when you do have success you have to keep it in perspective in order to sustain it,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. “I think we have a mature group. They’ve been on both sides of those circumstances. I think the most important thing — and this is what we talked to the players about — is just staying in the moment.”The Islanders (13-10-3) are looking down at the Penguins in the standings, but they, too, have been inconsistent. Since a five-game winning streak that ended in early November, they are 5-6-1.That includes a 2-1 loss Tuesday against Winnipeg when New York took a 1-0 lead, then lost 3-1 when the Jets scored goals 22 seconds apart early in the third period.The Islanders have been held to a single goal in three of their past five games.“One goal doesn’t do it in this league,” center Mathew Barzal said. “We’ve got to find a way to get on the board, whether that’s the power play or five-on-five. (The Jets are) the best team in the league Custom New Jersey Devils Jerseys , I’d say. For us to hang in there and push the pace, I thought, for most of it, it stinks not getting any points.”New York coach Barry Trotz agreed, to a point.“You don’t get paid to hang in,” Trotz said. “You get paid to win.”It’s unclear whether goaltender Robin Lehner will be available for the game Thursday. The Islanders recalled Christopher Gibson to back up Thomas Greiss against the Jets.“He just tweaked a little something,” Trotz said of Lehner. “We didn’t put him on IR, there’s no need for that. We hope he’s good to go in the next day or so.”The Penguins, meanwhile, could be without top-line winger Dominik Simon. He left in the first period of the Colorado game. Sullivan said Simon has a lower-body injury and is day-to-day. EDMONTON www.officialislanders.com , Alberta (AP) — The Chicago Blackhawks scored five goals in the third period to stay on a roll.Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist and the Blackhawks scored four goals in less than a three-minute span of the third in a 6-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.“We know what we are doing is working and we are hanging in games,” Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. “Whether we are ahead or down a goal going into the third period, we can find ways to create offense and come out on top. It is nice for our team to win in different ways, it only adds to our confidence.”Erik Gustafsson, John Hayden, Dylan Strome, Drake Caggiula and Dominik Kahun also scored for the Blackhawks, who have won five straight. Cam Ward stopped 25 shots.Leon Draisaitl scored both goals for Edmonton, which matched a season-high with its sixth-straight loss. Cam Talbot turned aside 23 of 27 shots before giving way to Mikko Koskinen, who made six saves.“Same type of thing as the last couple of games. We control a lot of the first two (periods) New York Islanders T-Shirts Authentic , and then go to sleep in the third,” Oilers captain Connor McDavid said. “I’m not sure what that is. We can talk all we want. We’ve just got to find a way to grab (the game) when it’s going like that.”Chicago struck before the game was two minutes old, when a point shot by Gustafsson ticked off the side of defender Adam Larsson’s leg and got past Talbot just four seconds into a power play.Edmonton tied the game on a power play of its own with three minutes left in the opening period. Draisaitl pounced on a rebound for his 30th goal of the season.The Oilers made it 2-1 on a two-man advantage with just over a minute remaining as McDavid fed Draisaitl, who scored again on a one-timer.The Blackhawks tied the game four minutes into the third. An Edmonton turnover led to a goal by Hayden. Chicago then surged into the lead 1:33 later when a shot by Strome went through Darnell Nurse’s legs and past Talbot.Kane extended the lead to 4-2 just 28 seconds later when he scored his 32nd of the season and extended his point streak to 12 games.Switching Talbot out for Koskinen didn’t make a difference as the Blackhawks scored again just 27 seconds later on a shot by former Oiler Caggiula.Edmonton allowed a fifth goal in the third period. Kahun scored on a power play with eight minutes left.“It is nice to keep this roll going and finally turn things a bit,” Chicago coach Jeremy Colliton said. “We have a bit of momentum and we are playing well. When you have the momentum and keep playing well, you usually get the results. We just need to keep pushing and we will get our points.”NOTES: Oilers defenseman Oscar Klefbom returned to the lineup after missing the last 21 games with a broken finger on his left hand.UP NEXTBlackhawks: Host Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.Oilers: At Minnesota Wild on Thursday.
