"They have one or two chances the second and third period. We have the puck most of the time, but it's just not enough rebounds. We hit a couple of posts, a crossbar, but we're not in the inside enough. Their goalie played very well. I think for us to beat him, a big, athletic goalie like that, Tony Esposito Authentic Jersey we need to get some rebounds." -- Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella "I think we were just harder. We were quicker to close. Obviously, Linus did a heck of a job in goal, but I thought that we just really committed to the battles. I thought we supported each other really well in the defensive zone. There were some times where they had some pressure and we made some good plays to break the puck out. I think that's going to be a really big thing for us moving forward." -- Sabres right wing Kyle Okposo Jones has at least one assist in three straight games and five in that span. … Columbus center Alexander Wennberg returned after missing the previous eight games with a back injury. … Ullmark's 44 saves are the most by a Sabres goalie in a win since Anders Nilsson made 46 in a 2-1 shootout win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Nov. 19, 2016. WASHINGTON -- Victor Rask scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period, Marian Hossa Jersey and the Carolina Hurricanes ended the Washington Capitals' NHL-best 10-game home winning streak with a 3-1 victory at Capital One Arena on Thursday. The Capitals (27-14-3), who also had their season-high five-game winning streak end, had not lost at home since the Los Angeles Kings defeated them 5-2 on Nov. 30. "They've been playing great. They're a great team," Carolina goalie Scott Darling said. "Every streak has to come to an end, so I'm happy that we were the ones to do it." Jordan Staal Patrick Kane Jersey and Sebastian Aho scored, and Darling made 27 saves for the Hurricanes (20-15-8), who won for the first time in three games. Braden Holtby made 30 saves for Washington, which plays at Carolina on Friday. Rask's goal came during a delayed penalty call on Capitals forward Tom Wilson for a hit from behind on forward Derek Ryan. With an extra attacker on for the Hurricanes, Rask scored from the left face-off circle off the rebound of Justin Faulk's shot from the point at 10:54. "I'm not sure how it got to me," Rask said. "But Faulk shot it and somehow it bounced straight out to me, and I just tried to put it on net." Darling helped Patrick Sharp Jersey keep the game 0-0 well into the second period. At 8:47 of the period, he pivoted to make a pad save on Jay Beagle, who tried to jam a shot past him from in front. Staal scored shorthanded on a breakaway at 11:33 of the second period. He poked away a cross-ice pass from Carlson inside the Carolina blue line and scored on a backhand to make it 1-0. Washington tied it 1-1 at 16:05 of the second when Lars Eller beat Darling with a shot from the high slot after the Capitals won a face-off. Eller has scored in three straight games.
