TORONTO (AP) — Zach Hyman’s line was tasked with slowing Sidney Crosby.Chipping in on the scoreboard was an added bonus.Hyman snapped a tie late in the second period http://www.officialhurricanes.com/authentic-adidas-rod-brind_amour-jersey , Garret Sparks made 28 saves and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Saturday night.“We just kept working,” Hyman said. “We were playing well and stuck with it.”Auston Matthews also scored for Toronto, and Travis Dermott had a goal and an assist. Jake Gardiner added two assists.Crosby and Teddy Blueger scored for Pittsburgh, which was without Evgeni Malkin for a second straight game because of an upper-body injury. Matt Murray stopped 30 shots.“They generated both off the rush and within the zone,” said Crosby, who scored on the power play in the first period. “We probably didn’t do as good a job in their end holding onto pucks and creating momentum.”Both teams were playing their second game in two nights — Toronto lost 3-2 in overtime Friday at Detroit, and Pittsburgh topped Ottawa 5-3 at home.“These games are tough, playing a back-to-back against a good team,” Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly said. “Down two early, to come back and win, hold the lead in the third … it’s a good character win.”Toronto Scott Darling Jersey , which entered 4-7-1 over its last 12, went ahead with 3:54 left in the second on a slick play by Rielly and Mitch Marner.The duo worked a give-and-go in tight quarters along the boards before Rielly fired a shot that rebounded to Hyman, who outmuscled defenseman Kris Letang, kicked the puck to his stick as he fell to the ice and pushed in his ninth goal.Rielly’s assist was his 52nd point, tying his career high from 2017-18.The Penguins nearly got that one right back, but Sparks stopped Patric Hornqvist’s deflection and Tanner Pearson with his glove on the rebound.Patrick Marleau had two chances to give Toronto a two-goal lead in the third, but Murray was there both times, including with the pad on a great solo rush by the veteran winger.Pittsburgh pulled its goalie with 1:30 left in regulation and had an offensive zone faceoff with 28.4 seconds left when Leafs defenseman Nikita Zaitsev just missed the empty net on a shot that went for icing, but the home side managed to hang on.“They were just harder at our net,” Murray said. “Their goals were scored with traffic and tips and rebounds.”Jake Muzzin made his home debut for the Leafs after Monday’s trade with the Los Angeles Kings for two prospects and a 2019 first-round draft pick. The big defenseman got cheers during player introductions and had the crowd at Scotiabank Arena buzzing six minutes in when he laid out Penguins forward Jake Guentzel with a big hit along the boards.Notes: Former Leafs D Ian Turnbull was honored with Toronto’s J.P. Bickell Memorial Cup by the team’s board of directors. The nod came 42 years to the day after Turnbull scored five goals in a game on Feb. 2, 1977 — an NHL record for a blue-liner that still stands.UP NEXTPittsburgh Hosts Carolina on Tuesday night.Toronto: Hosts Anaheim on Monday night. GLENDALE Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey , Ariz. (AP) It took Devan Dubnyk 11 games to get his first NHL win. On Saturday night, the veteran goalie earned No. 200.Dubnyk stopped 30 shots and Marcus Foligno scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, leading the Minnesota Wild to a 3-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.Nino Niederreiter also scored and Eric Staal added an empty-netter to seal Minnesota’s fifth win in the last seven games. The Wild continued their hold on third place in the Central Division with 10 games to play in the regular season.Dubnyk spent 19 games with the Coyotes in the 2014-15 season, but he played well enough for the Wild to pursue him in a trade. He’s been in Minnesota ever since, and has won 130 games with the team.”It was a short time span here, but this organization (the Coyotes) gave me my confidence back and believed in me and gave me a chance, and it’ll always hold a special place for me even though it was only four months.”Antti Raanta, back in net for the Coyotes after a six-game injury absence, also finished with 30 saves. Clayton Keller scored the Coyotes’ only goal as they have lost back-to-back games for the first time since Feb. 3 and 6.Foligno’s eighth of the season came at 10:51 of the third. The Wild took advantage of an Arizona turnover behind Raanta’s net.Staal scored with 18 seconds to play, his team-leading 38th goal of the season. The Wild had won at Vegas Friday night and were in a tight battle with Arizona for most this game.”This team has been as hot as any team in the NHL, except for Nashville Authentic Teuvo Teravainen Jersey ,” Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau said of the Coyotes. ”We knew they weren’t going away.”The game’s first power play produced the first goal. Niederreiter got the rebound of a saved shot by Matt Dumba and sent the puck past Raanta at 7:35 of the first. It was Niederreiter’s 17th and ended a stretch of four straight games in which the Wild failed to scored on power plays.”We know how important every game is going to be down the stretch,” Neiderreiter said. ”I’m happy it just fell right in front of me and I had a chance to put it home.”The Coyotes’ penalty-kill unit kept the Wild from scoring on Minnesota’s four other power plays for the game.Keller tied it at 4:03 of the second as he broke free with the puck off a blocked shot by teammate Richard Panik, and put in his 20th. Keller became the third Coyotes rookie in franchise history to reach 20 goals in a season.Panik missed a chance to give Arizona the lead when Dubnyk saved his breakaway attempt at 13:58 of the second.”I don’t think we are getting enough in front of the net,” Coyotes head coach Rick Tocchet said. ”That is something over the summer we have to start to find, we need people who can go to the net.”NOTES: Coyotes C Zac Rinaldo returned to action after eight games out with an upper body injury. … The Coyotes wore green warmup jerseys with a plaid pattern on the shoulders and arms in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. … Wild F Daniel Winnik, scratched for the first time this season on Thursday, was back in the lineup and assisted on Foligno’s goal. … Wild fans were at times the more vocal ones in the Coyotes’ building, chanting ”Let’s Go Wild!” and ”Dooobbb” for Dubnyk stops. … Dumba played in his 300th career NHL game, and Boudreau is one win away from 500 in his coaching career.UP NEXTWild: Host Los Angeles on Monday night.Coyotes: Host Calgary on Monday night.
