UNIONDALE, N. Ryan Johansen Jersey .Y. - Islanders captain John Tavares had the puck on his stick late in overtime, hesitated to force Washington defenceman Karl Alzner out of position, then whipped the puck past goaltender Braden Holtby as New York won another nail-biter.When I got it there, I had a good feeling their defence was in a tough spot, said Tavares, who heard chants of MVP, MVP from the sellout crowd of 16,170 at Nassau Coliseum. I kind of froze them and created an angle. It felt good to see it go in.The 3-2 victory Wednesday night over the Capitals was the fifth straight for the Islanders and moved them to 16-6-0. Theyve won 10 of 11 to tie Pittsburgh for first place in the Metropolitan Division, though the Penguins have a game in hand.The goal was the ninth this season for Tavares, set up on a cross-ice feed from Ryan Strome. It came at 4:36 with two seconds left on a penalty to Washingtons Nicklas Backstrom for holding the stick.Tavares was mobbed by teammates as roars cascaded down from the rafters. New York is 8-2-0 at home thus far in their final season on Long Island before moving to Brooklyn in 2015.The Islanders also won for the seventh time in extra time — twice in overtime. Coach Jack Capuano had a hard time explaining why his team is perfect past regulation — though five of the victories are in shootouts.New York had all five shots in overtime.All I can say is that guys want the puck on their sticks in those stages of the game, he said.The Islanders have set a franchise record by winning 16 of their first 22 games.Jaroslav Halak made 25 saves for his eighth straight win. He has allowed only 10 goals in those eight wins.Everyone has played well for us, added Tavares, who leads the team with 21 points. At any point in time, any guy can step up. And obviously Jaro is playing great. We just want to keep it going.Anders Lee and Travis Hamonic scored first-period goals for the Islanders, while Alex Ovechkin scored two power-play goals for the Capitals in his 700th NHL game.We played a great game, but they got a power play in overtime and that was the difference, Ovechkin said.New York is 10-2 in November. Last season the Islanders were 4-10-1 during the month and didnt win their 16th game until Jan. 7. The boisterous home crowd certainly provides a boost.We can all feel it on the bench, Capuano said. The energy is awesome.The Capitals (9-8-4) have been inconsistent under new coach Barry Trotz, the teams fourth coach in four seasons, and fell behind early.Lee opened the scoring at 5:11, tapping a rebound past Holtby for his fourth goal. Strome and Brock Nelson assisted.Ovechkin tied the game at 1-1 at 13:46 of the first on a one-timer from the left circle for his 10th of the season.

They had 23 goals from the defence all of last season.The Islanders, coming off a 1-0 home shootout win over Philadelphia on Monday, improved to 8-1 against Metropolitan Division opponents and are 10-1-0 in games decided by a single goal.The teams complete a home-and-home series in Washington on Friday.I think the next game will be different for them and for us as well, Ovechkin said.NOTES: Islanders defencemen Thomas Hickey and Calvin de Haan returned after one-game absences because of illness. . New York scratched reserve defencemen Matt Donovan and Brian Strait plus forward Cory Conacher. . The Capitals scratched injured defenceman Mike Green (upper body) and forwards Brooks Laich and Michael Latta. Marek Mazanec Jersey .J. -- All those records, all for naught. Calle Jarnkrok Jersey . The midfielder had an operation on Saturday, and is set to miss seven Premier League games, the third round of the FA Cup and the semifinals of the League Cup.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Safety Micah Hyde stayed away from watching TV. Receiver Randall Cobb felt as if he was having nightmares. Offensive lineman Josh Sitton wished his team hadnt even made the playoffs. Before the Green Bay Packers can move on to their off-season routines, they must first get over a stunning collapse to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC title game. This loss will sting for a while after coming agonizingly close to advancing to the Super Bowl. Its going to be tough, Sitton said Monday as players cleared out lockers at Lambeau Field. And when its the last one its very difficult to get over, you feel like its a waste of seven, eight months. Whats the point of getting this far? the Pro Bowl guard added. Id have rather not even made the playoffs. The 2014 season was highlighted by an MVP-caliber year for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and a fourth straight NFC North title. Strong starts on offence led to blowout wins in October and November; tweaks at midseason made the defence stronger against the run. In the end, the Packers (13-5) just couldnt finish in a 28-22 loss to the Seahawks. Green Bay led 16-0 at halftime, and 19-7 with 10:53 left in the game. They still led by five with 2:09 left even after quarterback Russell Wilsons 1-yard touchdown run. An onside kick slipped through the hands of Green Bays Brandon Bostick and Seattle regained possession. But there were plenty of other plays that contributed to the meltdown. The Packers twice had to settle for short field goals after getting stopped in the first quarter near the goal line following Seattle turnovers. Special teams allowed a touchdown pass on a fake field goal in the third quarter. The offence went three-and-out on two straight drives with less than 7 minutes left in the game. Literally one of 10 plays you can pick that if we get it, we win the game, Sitton said. Its frustrating when you should have won the game and youre the better team and I thought we were the better team all day except for 3 minutes. Here are some takeaways as the Packers head into the offseason: COBB: Among potential free agents, Cobb by far had the biggest season. The fourth-year receiver finished with career bests of 91 catches in the regular season for 1,2287 yards and 12 touchdowns. Mattias Ekholm Jersey. The 5-foot-10 Cobb turned into an elusive threat in the red zone and consistently made tough catches over the middle. He finished with 15 receptions for 178 yards and a score in the post-season. I didnt really get much sleep last night. It felt like a nightmare whenever I did fall asleep. ... For us to be done with the season, Cobb said Monday before pausing a couple of seconds to collect his thoughts, its kind of blindsiding. Cobb wants to stay. Besides Jordy Nelson, the Packers dont have any other veterans at receiver for Rodgers going into 2015. CORNERBACK: The secondary could see some changes if the Packers dont re-sign veteran cornerback Tramon Williams. The contracts of Davon House, who played well against taller receivers, and special teams ace Jarrett Bush are also expiring. Sam Shields and Casey Hayward are veteran cornerbacks under contract through next year or beyond. RODGERS: The quarterback, who turned 31 in December, is in his prime. He has talked often about how legacies are shaped in the post-season. Slowed by a left calf injury late in the season, Rodgers seems as if hell go into the off-season as motivated as ever. Think about it and stay with it and move on and start getting ready for the off-season program, Rodgers said on Sunday. This ones going to hurt for a while because of the close proximity of feeling that feeling when the clock hits zero and youre ahead. We gave it away. OFFENSIVE LINE: The play of the front five was one of the biggest success stories in Green Bay. The group, which included rookie centre Corey Linsley, improved as the season went on in spite of lingering injuries to guards Sitton and T.J. Lang. Linsley and left tackle David Bakhtiari are emerging anchors to go with the veteran guards. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga is due to become a free agent. LINEBACKER: A move giving Clay Matthews more snaps at inside linebacker at midseason helped improve what had been a league-worst run defence and sparked the units second-half resurgence. It is unclear if coach Mike McCarthy views Matthews as a permanent fix at inside linebacker, or if he wants to return the long-haired veteran to his more customary role rushing from the outside. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
