MONTREAL (AP) Even with the Montreal Canadiens eliminated from postseason contention http://www.jetsshoppro.com/authentic-bryan-little-jersey , Brendan Gallagher keeps competing hard every single night.Gallagher scored twice, including his 30th goal of the season, and Carey Price snapped a seven-game losing streak as Montreal defeated the skidding Detroit Red Wings 4-2 on Monday.”Those 30 goals are well deserved,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said about Gallagher. ”It’s an example of what hard work and perseverance and commitment and dedication is all about. He never complains about anything. He goes about and does his job. That’s what you expect from your leaders.”With the two goals, Gallagher pushed his total to 49 points this season. His previous career high was 47.”It’s nice,” the feisty winger said about reaching the 30-goal plateau. ”You want to contribute and you want to score. It’s also nice to get it out of the way and stop talking about myself and get back to finishing hard and finishing the right way.”Paul Byron and Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal in a matchup of Original Six franchises who will miss the playoffs. Price made 26 saves for his first win since Feb. 4. He had been 0-5-2 since then.”We have five games remaining and we want to finish the right way game after game and really push each other to carry this over into next year,” Gallagher said.Gustav Nyquist and Tyler Bertuzzi scored for Detroit, and Jared Coreau stopped 27 shots in his fifth game of the season. He is 0-4-0.Both the Canadiens and Red Wings will take part in the draft lottery this spring. Montreal is 26th in the overall NHL standings, three points ahead of 27th-place Detroit.The Red Wings have won just once in their last 14 games (1-12-1).”We’ve been real good through the stretch,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ”We’ve played really good hockey. We’ve deserved better results. No chance is that good enough tonight. We have to be way better.”Our attention to detail, not good enough. Our intensity, not good enough. Winning puck battles, doing all the little things it takes Womens Connor Hellebuyck Jersey , just too many guys not going.”Gallagher scored his first of the game and team-leading 29th of the season at 4:27 of the second period to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead. The forward threw the puck on net from the corner of the ice and it bounced off Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser’s skate and in.The Edmonton native, who has scored in three consecutive games, got his 30th at 9:32 when he tipped a shot by Mike Reilly on net. The puck went off Coreau’s skate and landed in the crease before the goalie accidentally knocked it in himself.”Those are the ones I’m used to scoring,” said Gallagher, who also had two blocked shots. ”It’s always good when the guys don’t really know that you scored the goals. But any way you can score is obviously nice.”The 5-foot-9 forward came within inches of his first career hat trick. With 4:26 remaining, Jeff Petry’s shot from the blue line trickled past Coreau. Gallagher came close to knocking it in, but Galchenyuk got his stick on it first to make it 4-2.”I don’t think there’s a guy who works harder in this locker room,” Petry said about Gallagher. ”He’s one of the guys who’s consistently going to those tough areas and he’s getting rewarded for it.”Bertuzzi got one back for Detroit at 13:41 of the second when he squeezed a loose puck between Price’s pads.The teams traded goals in the first period.Nyquist got the first at 4:41 with a hard one-timer before Byron responded, on the power play, with a backhand off the post and in at 18:11 for his 19th.NOTES: Detroit recalled 21-year-old defenseman Joe Hicketts from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League. … Several Canadian Olympians were honored in a pregame ceremony, including medalists Kim Boutin, Charles Hamelin, Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Mikael Kingsbury.UP NEXTRed Wings: Host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.Canadiens: Play at Pittsburgh on Saturday night.— ST. PAUL Dmitry Kulikov Jersey , Minn. (AP) — Sharks coach Peter DeBoer never doubted going back to Martin Jones in net, even after he allowed three goals on seven shots before getting pulled in the first period of San Jose’s previous game.Jones has always bounced back quickly and he did it again Tuesday night as the Sharks continued their December roll.Logan Couture scored twice and Jones made 26 saves for his first shutout this season and the 20th of his career in San Jose’s 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild.“I knew after the Chicago game, I wanted to come right back with him,” DeBoer said. “In my time with him, he’s always responded after a game like that with a big game, every time. I was confident we were going to get that type of game out of him tonight.”Joe Pavelski added his 21st goal for San Jose, which has won five straight games and seven of eight. Sharks rookie Lukas Radil had an empty-net goal and one assist.“Everyone has tough games,” Couture said of Jones. “That was a tough one for him, but we have all the confidence in the world in him that he was going to rebound, and he played very well tonight.”Devan Dubnyk stopped 21 shots for Minnesota, which has lost seven of 10.“Overall, we had our chances tonight,” Wild forward Jason Zucker said. “It’s not like we didn’t get to the net. It’s not like we didn’t have our chances. We had chances Youth Dustin Byfuglien Jersey , we just didn’t bear down and bury them.”A lethargic start for both teams turned in San Jose’s favor in the second period as Couture and Pavelski scored 29 seconds apart.Radil sent a no-look pass from behind the Wild cage out front to Couture, who was crashing the net and buried a one-timer. Tomas Hertl sprung Pavelski on a breakaway for the second goal.Pavelski has eight goals in the past 11 games. Hertl had two assists and has multiple points in four of the last five games.As the Sharks took control in the second, Minnesota went without a shot for 12 minutes as the Wild’s struggles continued. Minnesota was shut out for the second time in six games.“Even we get chances and they look like wide-open chances, and then you’d turn around to the other coaches and say, ‘Did that not go in? How did that not go in?'” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “That seems to be something that’s happening on a regular basis.”Couture added his second goal and fifth in six games just 51 seconds into the third.“I thought from a team standpoint, it was probably one of our most solid games from start to finish; the way we defended, the way we kind of shut down the rush was solid tonight,” Jones said.NOTES: Minnesota captain Mikko Koivu returned after missing four games with a lower-body injury. Zucker was back in the lineup after missing a game with an illness. … The Wild were without D Matt Dumba, who sustained an upper-body injury in the previous game against Calgary. Dumba leads NHL defensemen with 12 goals this season. Nate Prosser took Dumba’s spot in the lineup. Prosser had been scratched the previous eight games and was playing just his third game of the season. … San Jose forward Timo Meier fought Minnesota D Greg Pateryn in the second period. It was Meier’s first career fight in 147 games. … The Sharks are 14-1-2 when leading after two periods. … The Wild have killed off all 13 of their penalties over the past seven games. They entered second in the NHL with an 85.6 percent rate on their penalty kill.UP NEXTSharks: Return home to face Winnipeg on Thursday.Wild: Play at Pittsburgh on Thursday.
