BOSTON — Fresh off a four-point weekend that included a difficult start time in Ottawa Detroit Red Wings T-Shirts Womens , the Bruins host the Coyotes Tuesday night looking for a sweep of the two-game season series with Arizona.And also looking for their 14th straight win over the Coyotes and ninth in a row at TD Garden.After routing the Toronto Maple Leafs to end a three-game losing streak Saturday night, the Bruins left immediately after that game for a late-afternoon start in Ottawa Sunday. They fell behind 1-0 but won the game in overtime, making the difficult travel weekend easier to accept.Article continues below …“Tonight was a game we stayed patient and eventually got things to go our way,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said after Torey Krug converted a nifty pass from David Krejci at 1:53 of overtime for the win. “I thought we were the better team the last 40, 43 minutes whatever it was, and eventually we got rewarded.”Saturday night, the Coyotes, who, like the Bruins, are in the middle of a severe injury situation Detroit Red Wings Hoodies Womens , rallied from three goals down but lost 5-3 to the San Jose Sharks at home. Now, Rick Tocchet’s team opens a four-game road trip — and are apparently ready to get a goaltender back.The news on Antti Raanta was bad and it appears he may well be out for the season with a lower body injury. Darcy Kuemper, out since Nov. 21 with a lower body injury, could return as early as Tuesday.Rookie Adin Hill has played the last six games — four wins and then two losses — to the tune of a 1.62 goals-against average and .939 save percentage. Calvin Pickard was claimed off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 1.General manager John Chayka, tweeting on the Coyote’s immediate goalie future, wrote, “I think it will be a bit of goalie by committee at this stage. Whoever’s playing well will get the net.”Sunday, on a conference call, the GM said his team was, “at a stage where they need some opportunity and they’re looking for a chance. Now we’ve got a chance (for them) … That’s the group we’ve got and that’s the group we’re going to go with.”Jaroslav Halak made 32 saves in a 2-1 Bruins victory at Arizona Nov. 17 and should be next in the rotation after he beat Toronto and Tuukka Rask got the win at Ottawa.Halak Detroit Red Wings Hats Womens , 9-4-2 on the season, is an impressive 9-3-2 with a 2.30 GA, a .930 save percentage and two career shutouts against the Coyotes.Kuemper, 4-5-2 on the season, has made three career starts against the Bruins, losing all three, with a 2.71 GAA and an .884 save percentage. Pickard has won his only career start against Boston, yielding two goals.The Coyotes, who lead the NHL with 11 shorthanded goals, fell to 13-13-2 with Saturday’s second straight home loss.“We played hard. We’re right there Custom Detroit Red Wings Jerseys ,” Tocchet said. “We’re a little depleted but guys gave it their all.”The Bruins had scored 16 goals in 10 games before scoring six Saturday night against the Leafs. They scored just enough Sunday to improve to 16-10-4.“I thought we had a lot of really good looks tonight,” said Brad Marchand, who scored the first goal. “We easily could have had four or five goals, but their goalie played really well, kept them in it.The Bruins have kept their heads above water despite a rash of injuries that still has them without Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller. The Coyotes lost Saturday without six players.Boston’s Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson scored his first NHL goal in the Bruins’ win in the desert. The Florida Panthers are off to a slow start this season — but not because they have played poorly.Florida will play its home opener on Thursday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. While many other NHL teams have already played three and four games this season — Columbus, for example, is 2-1-0 — the Panthers are 0-0-1 and have been off since last Saturday.But the Panthers aren’t worried. They finished one point short of the playoffs last season are a trendy pick to make the postseason in 2019.Article continues below …Even so, the Panthers are already facing adversity as starting goalie Roberto Luongo is out two-to-four weeks due to a right-knee injury. He was hurt in Saturday’s 2-1 shootout loss at the Tampa Bay Lightning.James Reimer is expected to start on Thursday, and Michael Hutchinson was called up from the Panthers’ American Hockey League affiliate , the Springfield Thunderbirds.“No one wants to be without their No. 1 goalie, but it could have been worse,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “And we have good depth there.”The Blue Jackets are dealing with their own issues as forward Brandon Dubinsky suffered an oblique injury on Sunday and will likely miss at least four weeks.Dubinsky had brought physicality and grit to what had been Columbus’ best line in its first two games, teaming with Josh Anderson and Boone Jenner. In those two games, Dubinsky had one goal and one assist.“(The injury) is a tough break for him and for our team,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “That was our best line, and specifically him.”Columbus beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Tuesday in their first game without Dubinsky. The teams were tied 2-2 after two periods before Columbus closed with a flourish. Nick Foligno starred for the Jackets, scoring twice and adding one assist.Former Boston Bruins forward Riley Nash, signed as a free agent this past offseason, has replaced Dubinsky on that Anderson-Jenner line. He was a plus-one in 16 minutes of ice time on Tuesday.Another repercussion of the Dubinsky injury is that Lukas Sedlak — a healthy scratch the first two games — will be more involved as a fourth-line center. He got 6:47 of ice time on Tuesday New York Islanders T-Shirts Womens , including 50 seconds on the penalty kill and 1:03 on the power play.Thursday’s lineup, however, is subject to change.“I can’t say what’s going to happen in my mind as we go through a game,” Tortorella said. “I want to keep lines together. But I also need better play from other people.”The Panthers, meanwhile, just want a victory. They played well on Saturday against the Lightning, a team favored to reach the Stanley Cup Finals this season. But Tampa Bay got a short-handed goal in the third period — Florida was using five forwards and no defensemen on its power play and got burned with that alignment — and the Lightning then won the game in the shootout.Winger Mike Hoffman, making his Panthers debut after scoring 104 goals the past four years with the Ottawa Senators, had an unlucky game. He hit the post on an overtime shot that would’ve won the game. Hoffman then hit a post again in his shootout attempt.
