at PPG Paints Arena most likely will give Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Matt Murray an opportunity for something of a fresh start.Murray Ottawa Senators T-Shirts Authentic , who helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in 2016 and 2017, not played as well since, at least in part because of injuries. He is expected to start for Pittsburgh (14-11-6) after recovering from a lower-body injury.Murray was put on injured reserve on Thanksgiving after putting up the worst numbers of his career to that point in the season: 4-5-1, an .877 goals-against average and a 4.08 goals-against average.Article continues below ...The time off to heal could help him with a reset.“There’s always benefits,” Murray said of being out. “You’ve got to take the positives out of every situation and run with it. It’s not about dwelling on the fact that you’re not in the lineup or you’re not healthy but using your time to get better in any way that you can.”Murray came off IR Wednesday, but the Penguins opted to have him back up Casey DeSmith that night in a 6-3 loss at Chicago and again Friday in a 5-3 win against Boston, when DeSmith made a career-high 48 saves.“We’re trying to put Matt in the best possible position to be successful,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said of waiting until at least Saturday to start Murray.“He’s had one team practice and a morning skate (since getting full medical clearance).“The reality is, we’re playing back-to-backs, so they’re both going to get games. … When you look at the schedule, both in the short-term playing back-to-back, but also in the bigger picture where we play six games in nine nights Ottawa Senators Hoodies Authentic , both of these guys are going to get playing time.”The Kings (11-20-2) were already in Pittsburgh Friday and got to relax while the Penguins played.Not that their season has been very relaxing.The Kings sit last in the NHL. They lost Thursday at Columbus 4-1 and are 0-2-1 going into final game of a road trip.“We have to be a lot better if we want to win games in this league,” Kings center Jeff Carter said. “That’s the bottom line here. We need to have more from everybody, myself included.”There is a lot of statistical evidence to show that Los Angeles has earned its spot on the cellar.A glaring one is the 1-for-17 lull on the power play over the past eight games, along with giving up six opponent power-play goals in that span.“It’s been a common theme this year,” Carter said. “We’ve lost the special teams battles way too much this year, and it’s a huge, huge part of where we’re at.”Among the other defining numbers, the Kings are 1-13-1 when they trail after the first period, 0-16-0 when they trail entering the third period.The Kings will be without defenseman Dion Phaneuf for the second straight game. He has returned to Los Angeles because of an upper-body injury.“He will be (out of the lineup) a little bit of time,” interim coach Willie Desjardins said.Pittsburgh could be without its top defenseman, Kris Letang, who left Friday’s game late in the third period with an apparent left leg injury after colliding with Boston’s Joakim Nordstrom. There was no postgame update on his status. SAN JOSE Ottawa Senators Hats Authentic , Calif. (AP) Evander Kane was so excited about being traded from a last-place team to one in playoff contention that he raced to a cross-country flight in order to jump right into the lineup.Kane made an immediate impact in his San Jose debut by assisting on two goals during a four-goal second period and delivering a few big hits that helped the Sharks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 on Tuesday night.”I kind of come from not playing so much meaningful hockey to playing some meaningful hockey,” he said. ”Obviously, you get a little ramped up and I just tried to change the game in any way I can. It’s good to get on the board and contribute offensively and also with some other elements.”Joe Pavelski had a goal and three assists while centering San Jose’s top line with Kane on his left wing. Justin Braun, Timo Meier and Logan Couture also scored in the second to help the Sharks snap a three-game losing streak and remain in sole possession of second place in the Pacific Division. Chris Tierney added an empty-net goal.But the catalyst was Kane, whose arrival from Buffalo allowed coach Peter DeBoer to play four lines with confidence.”He brings a little bit of everything to the table,” DeBoer said. ”That’s why he’s as valuable as he is and as highly thought of as he is in the league. I liked his game tonight. I thought he worked really hard away from the puck. The offense and physicality are things you take for granted, but I thought defensively and away from the puck, I thought he really worked hard.”Martin Jones allowed a first-period goal by Connor McDavid and a third-period tally by Jesse Puljujarvi but made 24 saves for the win.The Sharks looked like a different team than the one that stumbled in the final three games of their recent road trip, getting outscored 13-4. General manager Doug Wilson provided a big boost Monday when he dealt two conditional 2019 draft picks and prospect Danny O’Regan to the struggling Sabres for Kane.Kane got acclimated at the morning skate and moved right onto the top line with Pavelski, his former teammate in Russia during the 2012-13 lockout, and Joonas Donskoi.That line was San Jose’s most dangerous right from the start as Kane had a couple of wraparound attempts in the first period before helping the Sharks get on the scoreboard in the second.Kane hit Matt Benning in the corner to start the sequence on San Jose’s first goal when he sent a shot from the boards that Pavelski redirected past Cam Talbot to tie the game at 1.”It’s a good element for our team right now,” Pavelski said. ”That’s one thing that I think everyone is so excited for Custom Ottawa Senators Jerseys , that edge that he plays with. That compete level. You see it right away.”Kane, who had just seven points in his final 26 games with the Sabres, added a secondary assist on Braun’s goal that gave the Sharks the lead and then got into a scuffle with Benning in front of the net later in the second.Kane’s line then hemmed the Oilers in on the forecheck later in the third, leading to Meier’s 16th goal after a line change against a weary defense.Couture broke it open with his 26th of the season late in the second, ending the Oilers’ three-game winning streak.”The four goals that they did score were them creating turnovers in the (offensive) zone and pouncing on it,” forward Milan Lucic said. ”Twenty minutes lost us the game and it’s unfortunate with the start we had and a chance to have a great road trip.”McDavid got Edmonton off to a fast start with his 13th goal in the past 14 games. Andrej Sekera blocked a shot from Marc-Edouard Vlasic, sending McDavid in on a 2-on-1 that he converted.NOTES: Talbot made 29 saves. … Pontus Aberg, acquired last weekend from Nashville, got the assist on Puljujarvi’s goal in his debut for Edmonton. … Pavelski has four goals and five assists in three games vs. Edmonton this season. … Willie O’Ree, the first black player in the NHL, dropped the ceremonial first puck.UP NEXTOilers: Host the Nashville Predators on Thursday.Sharks: Host the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday.—
