TORONTO (AP) — Down two goals and their best player Womens Claude Giroux Jersey , the Toronto Maple Leafs talked in the second intermission about getting back to what has made them successful early on this season.That speed and puck pursuit eventually proved to be the difference against a weary opponent.Jake Gardiner and Kasperi Kapanen scored in a late 26-second span and Maple Leafs overcame the loss of star center Auston Matthews to beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Saturday night.“We hadn’t been playing the game we wanted to,” said Mitch Marner, who set up Toronto’s first two goals. “We knew we needed to get pucks in, we needed to be quicker on our feet. That’s when we’re at our best.”Matthews left in the second period after injuring his left shoulder absorbing a hit from defenseman Jacob Trouba. Matthews cut to the front of the net with the puck and, as he attempted to shoot on goalie Connor Hellebuyck, Trouba went shoulder-to-shoulder with Matthews.Leafs coach Mike Babcock said Matthews is set be re-evaluated on Monday and will not play that night against the Calgary Flames.“It’s tough,” Marner said. “He’s a big part of this team http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-ivan-provorov-jersey , everyone knows that. Hopefully we get him back soon.”Kapanen scored the go-ahead goal with 2:45 left.“It got away from us in the third,” Trouba said. “They were on us in the defensive zone, they caused the turnovers.”Nazem Kadri also scored and Frederik Andersen made 22 saves to help the Leafs snap a three-game losing streak at home and improve to 8-3-0.Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele scored for Winnipeg, and Hellebuyck made 28 saves. The Jets dropped to 7-4-1.,Toronto beat the Jets 4-2 on Wednesday at Bell MTS Place to snap a two-game slide.“Any time you get a real good team twice in a week and you can get it done, it’s positive,” Babcock said.NOTES: The Jets left immediately after the game for Finland Jakub Voracek Jersey Kids , where they will play the Florida Panthers in Helsinki on Thursday and Friday. … “The Hockey Song” by Stompin’ Tom Connors was immortalized in the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame before the game. The iconic sports anthem was performed during the second period by country singer Tim Hicks. … Matthews leads the Leafs with 10 goals and 16 points.UP NEXTJets: Face Florida in Thursday night in Helsinki.Maple Leafs: Host Calgary on Monday night. DALLAS (AP) The Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals cleared some space to try to re-sign a handful of key free agents by trading veteran defenseman Brooks Orpik and backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer to the Colorado Avalanche for the 47th pick in the NHL draft .Shedding Orpik’s $5.5 million salary in the final year of his contract and dealing Grubauer before he earned more as a restricted free agent gives them more than $20 million in cap space. It’s needed because defensemen John Carlson and Michal Kempny can become unrestricted free agents July 1 and playoff hero Devante Smith-Pelly and top-line winger Tom Wilson will get raises as RFAs.”You don’t like trading away good people, but it’s what we had to do to move forward with the team,” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said Friday night. ”It’s hard to do, but we had to create some room to sign some players.”Carlson, who led all defenseman in scoring in the regular season and playoffs, is expected to cost $8 million-plus a season on a long-term deal. The Capitals would have struggled to fit that under the $79.5 million ceiling without a move like this.MacLellan has met with Carlson’s agent and said the two sides are really close to agreeing to a contract.”We’re going to do our best to sign John,” MacLellan said. ”Hopefully we can close the deal here over the next 24 hours.”The 37-year-old Orpik was a respected alternate captain who got the Cup third after Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom when Washington won its first title in franchise history. The rugged defenseman played almost 20 minutes a game in four seasons with the Capitals and scored the winning goal in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against Vegas.Colorado GM Joe Sakic was willing to take Orpik in the trade to keep the acquisition cost down and plans to try to trade him or buy him out. He felt it was worth it for the Avalanche to get Grubauer.”We all feel that he’s ready to take the next step and become a No. 1 Youth Jordan Weal Jersey ,” Sakic said. ”We’re excited to have two No. 1 goalies.”The 26-year-old joins fellow Capitals draft pick Semyon Varlamov with the Avalanche where he’ll get the chance to start more games than he did behind Braden Holtby in Washington.Grubauer started a career-high 35 games with the Capitals this past season, going 28-15-10 with a 2.35 goals-against average and .923 save percentage. He played well enough to be the Capitals’ starter at the beginning of the playoffs but was replaced by Holtby during Game 2 of the first round after allowing eight goals on 49 shots.The Avalanche lost Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier to injuries last season and with this move shored up their goaltending situation. Bernier will depart in free agency. Sakic expects to agree to terms on a deal with Grubauer, a pending restricted free agent, in short order.”I believe it’ll come pretty quick,” Sakic said.The Capitals can only hope the same in their negotiations with Carlson. It’s their goal to sign him before he can speak with other teams when the draft concludes and would be one of the top free agents available.MacLellan also wouldn’t rule out bringing back Orpik if the Avalanche buy him out.”I think it’s legal,” MacLellan said. ”We’re open to that depending on how much room and how much salary it would take and if we want to put him in that third pair again.”—
