A year ago Michael Grabner Jersey Womens , that a fast start can build the foundation for a successful season. Looking to replicate that, the Devils seek a fourth consecutive victory Tuesday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Prudential Center.The Devils (3-0-0) won their first three games last season, as well. They also earned wins in six of their first seven games, and nine of 11, setting the stage for a 97-point campaign and the organization’s first playoff appearance in six years.“It’s huge because it gives you breathing room, a bit more space, and our start last year really propelled us to maintain that strong play all season long,” said Devils alternate captain Taylor Hall. “You have to bank wins whenever you can, and it’s especially nice to do so right at the start of the season.”Article continues below ...New Jersey has taken a page from last year’s playbook by beating the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals and San Jose Sharks in succession, so far http://www.sanjosesharksteamshop.com/authentic-brent-burns-jersey , this season, outscoring the opposition 14-4.Kyle Palmieri is a driving force behind the strong start, scoring two goals in all three games. His six goals place him among the early league-leaders and well ahead of last year’s pace when injuries slowed him early on and he didn’t score his sixth goal until December.“I’m always confident in my shot, but I think it’s fortunate they are going in for me right now,” said Palmieri. “See how long we can keep that going.”New Jersey comes off a 3-2 win over the Sharks on Saturday, one in which they rallied from a one-goal deficit in the third period. Palmieri scored the tying goal and waiver-wire pickup Jean-Sebastien Dea scored the winner on a rebound.Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid, who is ably filling in for the injured Cory Schneider, stopped 37 of 39 shots Saturday and has a 1.33 goals against average, .949 save percentage and one shutout this season.The Stars (3-2-0) started off with a four-game homestand and won three times before heading out on the road and dropping a 4-1 decision to the Ottawa Senators on Monday. John Klingberg scored a first-period power play goal, extending his point streak to five consecutive games to start the season. Alexander Radulov assisted on the goal and has points in five straight, as well. Radulov’s 10 points are tied for most on the team with Tyler Seguin.Dallas went 1-for-4 on the power play Monday and is 7-for-13 the past four games. Team captain Jamie Benn has three power play goals Marian Hossa Jersey Womens , while Klingberg has two.Last year, the Stars had a decent start, winning seven of their first 12 games, but ended up missing the playoffs for the third time in four years, finishing three points out of eighth place.“We talked about it during the offseason, during training camp, we wanted a good start this year,” Seguin told the Stars’ website. “We got that at home, and now we have to focus on our road record.”Winning on the road is a point of emphasis with the Stars. Last season, the Stars had only 16 road victories. “If you want to be a playoff team, you have to be .500 on the road Womens Evander Kane Jersey , at least,” first-year Stars coach Jim Montgomery told reporters on Monday night. “I didn’t think we managed the game (against the Senators) really well for being on the road.”Dallas will be without Martin Hanzal (back) and Stephen Johns (concussion) on Tuesday, while the Devils will play without Schneider (off-season hip surgery) and Jesper Bratt (fractured jaw). Devils center Nico Hischier is expected to play despite leaving practice early Monday with a sore foot after blocking a shot against the Sharks.Anton Khudobin likely will start in goal for the Stars after Ben Bishop made 20 saves in Monday’s loss.Last season, the teams split the two-game season series with each club winning on home ice. New Jersey’s Brian Boyle had three goals against the Stars, while Radulov netted a pair against the Devils. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes haven’t had much to celebrate at their arena in recent years, at least when it comes to the playoffs. At the end of another listless season, they kept the Tampa Bay Lightning from partying there.Elias Lindholm scored 49 seconds into overtime, and the Hurricanes prevented Tampa Bay from clinching the top spot in the Eastern Conference by beating the Lightning 3-2 on Saturday night.Justin Williams had a goal and an assist, Jordan Staal scored a deflected goal and Phil Di Giuseppe had two assists for the Hurricanes. They had lost three straight and four of five down the stretch during their ninth straight season without making the playoffs – tied for the third-longest such drought in NHL history.”Listen, it’s tough for me to put on a smile for a couple seconds Authentic Joe Pavelski Jersey , and then you realize where you are,” Williams said. ”And then instantly turns into a frown.”Ondrej Palat scored the tying goal with 8:49 left and Ryan Callahan also scored for Tampa Bay. But with star Steven Stamkos out for a third straight game with an upper-body injury, the Lightning earned one point for going to OT but relinquished control of the Atlantic Division race to Boston.The Bruins, who beat Ottawa 5-2 on Saturday night, will win the division and claim the top spot in the East if they beat Florida on Sunday night.”You never want to leave things into the hands of another team, but there’s still a chance for us to be the first seed,” Tampa Bay center Alex Killorn said. ”We’ll wait and see.”The winning goal came after Teuvo Teravainen charged between the circles and looked left to Lindholm, who one-timed it past Louis Domingue.That came after J.T. Miller set up Tampa Bay’s tying goal when he found Palat with a slick pass and the defenseman one-timed it by Ward to make it 2-2.Cam Ward made 32 saves against the NHL’s highest-scoring offense. The Lightning average a league-best 3.56 goals and in winning the first two games of the season series had scored five goals in each.”Obviously, they’re top in the East for a reason, and pretty much can be a threat every time they’re out there,” Ward said. ”We came in tonight trying to finish the right way http://www.sanjosesharksteamshop.com/authentic-joe-thornton-jersey , and I thought the effort was there all night. They’re going to get their looks and get their chances but … if I made the save, the guys are right there to help me out.”Domingue stopped 39 shots for Tampa Bay, which had won two straight and three of four.”I like the way that we’ve played the past couple of games,” Killorn said. ”Tonight may not have been as great as the other two, but it’s about putting a full game together and I think guys are excited for playoffs. We’ve been in the playoffs, clinched, for a while now. We’re kind of tired of waiting and we want to get started.”NOTES: Staal won two awards following a vote of the local chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, earning the Steve Chiasson Award for determination and dedication to the sport and the Josef Vasicek Award for cooperation with the media. … The group also selected RW Sebastian Aho as team MVP.UP NEXTLightning: Will watch the Florida-Boston game while awaiting the start of their first-round series.Hurricanes: Preseason camp starts in September.—
