CALGARY Edmonton Oilers Hoodies Authentic , Alberta (AP) — Mark Giordano has been defying his age all season.The 35-year-old defenseman had three more assists Wednesday night and the Calgary Flames kept right on rolling with a 5-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche.“Just trying to put pucks on net, jump in when I can,” Giordano said. “Playing on a pretty good power play with pretty good players, trying to move the puck around to those guys and get it in their hands and when you do that with those types of players, they reward you.”Mikael Backlund, Mark Jankowski, Elias Lindholm and Michael Frolik scored for Calgary (28-13-4), which is 6-1-1 in its last eight games. Matthew Tkachuk added an empty-net goal for the Flames, who have a two-point lead over Vegas atop the Pacific Division.Giordano had the primary assist on Lindholm’s power-play goal that broke a 2-all tie at 12:57 of the second period and Frolik’s deflection that made it 4-2 halfway through the third.“He’s one of the best I’ve ever met. I couldn’t be happier that I have a chance to play with him Edmonton Oilers Hats Authentic ,” Frolik said. “He’s been unbelievable, especially this year. He’s really driving the bus on the back end now.”Johnny Gaudreau added two assists for the Flames to extend his point streak to six games.Giordano has 303 career assists, moving him past Joe Nieuwendyk into fifth on the franchise list.Nathan MacKinnon ran his point streak to eight games with a goal for Colorado (20-16-8). Erik Johnson and Mikko Rantanen also scored as the slumping Avalanche dropped to 1-6-2 in their last nine games.“We’re not finding ways to win right now, whether it’s a save at a key time or a goal at a key time,” said Gabriel Landeskog, who fired 12 shots on David Rittich — the most by an NHL player in a game this season. “We’re generating plenty of chances and we allowed only 16 shots. When you do that you’ve got to be able to win.”Rittich, sharp all night, made 32 saves to improve to 16-4-3.“He was awesome, again Custom Edmonton Oilers Jerseys ,” Giordano said. “It’s the timely saves that are huge, to be honest. When you’re tied or you’re up one and he’s keeping that same score line. He’s been doing it all year and again, another big night by him.”Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov, tested only 15 times, fell to 11-9-5.“We have to help them more,” Rantanen said, defending Colorado’s goaltending. “It’s been our problem lately. Not just the last two games, even before that. We score enough goals to win, but we can’t give up seven or five goals every night.”Colorado has been struggling to kill off penalties. Meanwhile www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com , the Flames’ penalty kill had a big night, going 4 for 4 against an Avalanche team that came into the game ranked fifth with the man advantage.“Our PK, the role is to shut it down so I think we did a pretty good job of that and trying to halt their momentum,” said Jankowski, who scored his seventh goal.Frolik’s goal at 9:14 of the third, when he deflected in Giordano’s point shot, ended up the game-winner after Rantanen scored with 38 seconds remaining and the goalie pulled.Calgary got off to a fast start when Backlund buried James Neal’s rebound at 5:34. The Flames doubled their lead five minutes later on Jankowski’s seventh.But the Avalanche got back to even before the period ended.Consecutive giveaways by Rittich and Monahan resulted in the Avs getting a tic-tac-toe goal from their top line with MacKinnon completing the passing sequence with Landeskog and Rantanen.Johnson’s shot just inside the post tied it with 19 seconds left in the period, but the Avalanche came up short again.“A little bit disheartening, playing two games like that on the road back-to-back against two really good teams and coming out with nothing. Because I thought for the most part that we were really good tonight Florida Panthers T-Shirts Authentic ,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said. “It feels like defensively we have to play a perfect game right now because we just aren’t getting any puck luck at the other end.”UP NEXTAvalanche: Colorado is 0-2-0 on a five-game trip to Canada that continues Saturday night in Montreal.Flames: Host the Florida Panthers on Friday night. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Blake Wheeler knows the Winnipeg Jets don’t panic when they fall behind.That mindset paid off again Thursday night when Kyle Connor scored with 1:14 remaining to give the Jets a 4-3 victory over the slumping Columbus Blue Jackets.“We’ve done it enough this year that we have a lot of confidence that we know we don’t have to change our game,” Wheeler said. “We can continue to play the same way for 60 minutes.“We’re going to generate enough chances. It’s just a matter of finishing them. Some nights they’re going to go in, and some nights they’re not.”Winnipeg won its sixth consecutive home game and handed the Blue Jackets their four straight loss overall.

Josh Anderson had a power-play goal and Oliver Bjorkstrand also scored. Seth Jones contributed a pair of assists.Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 22 shots for the Blue Jackets.“It (stinks) to lose that way in the last minute,” forward Nick Foligno said. “Guys played really hard, played to our identity tonight and (it) just doesn’t sit well with me getting scored on late like that.”Connor was coming off a change when he took a pass from Bryan Little and beat Bobrovsky over his stick.“The puck got rimmed down low to Bryan and he made an incredible pass on his backhand there and found me in the slot,” Connor said. “Just tried to get it off quick.”Columbus leading scorer Cam Atkinson was hit in the face by a puck during warmups and replaced by Mark Letestu. Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella had no update after the game.Despite the loss Florida Panthers Hoodies Authentic , Tortorella was satisfied with his team’s performance.“I thought our guys rallied together and played a good game,” he said.The Blue Jackets led 2-1 after the first period and 3-2 after two, but Roslovic tied it at 8:47 of the third when his hit shot went into the corner with 17 seconds left on a Winnipeg power play.Winnipeg killed off a penalty with six minutes left and then Bobrovsky made a big save on Mathieu Perreault.Wheeler helped open the scoring after a Columbus turnover when he set up Scheifele for a one-timer that beat Bobrovsky at 4:34 of the first.Ryan Murray sent the puck between the skates of a Winnipeg defender right to Panarin’s stick and he fired it over Hellebuyck’s glove to tie it at 8:52.
