For nearly a full calendar year Custom New York Islanders Jerseys , Milan Lucic of the Edmonton Oilers has battled a goal-scoring slump the likes of which he’s never experienced in his 12-year NHL career.Still, he’s figured out how to produce against the Montreal Canadiens.Lucic will try to help the Oilers avoid their fifth straight loss Tuesday night when they meet the Canadiens at Rogers Place.Article continues below ...Lucic has reached the 20-goal mark five times in his career, including a career-best 30 in 2010-11 with the Boston Bruins. After signing a seven-year deal with Edmonton (8-8-1) in 2016, the rugged winger potted 23 goals in his first season in blue and orange.However, he slumped to 10 markers last season, and hasn’t scored since opening night. All told, Lucic has two goals in his last 63 games — and is trying to stay upbeat.“I understand the numbers and the goals and all that type of stuff www.officialhockeyrangersshop.com , but if I focus on my overall game, I feel like it’s been pretty good and if I just stick with it, it’s eventually going to go in,” Lucic said Monday. “Maybe it’s just the year 2018. It’s just been not my year and everything that can bounce the other way has. Just stay with it until 2019 rolls around, maybe.”Facing Montreal (9-5-3) may be the perfect slumpbuster. Lucic has goals in each of his last three matchups with the Canadiens and the 14 career goals against them are his most against any opponent.“(We’ve) got to bring it tomorrow against a team that’s playing really well, really hard, getting contributions from a lot of guys New York Rangers T-Shirts Authentic ,” Lucic noted.Connor McDavid said Lucic’s contributions go beyond the scoresheet.“It doesn’t matter if he scores at all,” said the Oilers captain, who has one goal in his last six games. “He’s a guy that brings so much to the team, so much in the room. When he’s playing hard, playing mean like he has been, he opens up so much ice.” OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Mike Hoffman’s 100th career goal was a real gem.Hoffman went end-to-end before slipping a shot past Juuse Saros 3:01 into overtime New York Rangers Hoodies Authentic , lifting the Ottawa Senators to a 4-3 victory against the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.”It was good to hit a milestone like that and it makes it even more special when it’s an overtime winner,” Hoffman said. ”I guess it couldn’t have happened at a better time.”Chris DiDomenico, Max McCormick and Magnus Paajarvi also scored as Ottawa (19-25-9) won for the fourth time in five games. Craig Anderson made 35 saves for his 15th win of the season.”I think we’ve got guys stepping up,” Anderson said. ”When someone goes down with an injury another guy can fill that role and take advantage of that time. We’ve got guys coming in and competing and we’re playing pretty well as a team right now.”P.K. Subban scored twice for the Predators (32-12-9), and Calle Jarnkrok picked up his 13th goal. Saros stopped 32 shots.Nashville moved into a first-place tie with Winnipeg in the Central Division with 73 points apiece, but the Predators were disappointed to have the extra point slip away.”We want to be the best team in the league and we had an opportunity to possibly do that and we didn’t get it,” said Subban. ”It was a good effort to at least get a point out of it New York Rangers Hats Authentic , but we have to learn. The last two games we haven’t been able to play a full 60 minutes and we have to learn from that.”Veteran forward Kyle Turris returned to Ottawa for the first time since he was traded to the Predators in November. He received a standing ovation during a video tribute in the first period.”It was really nice of the Sens organization to do,” Turris said. ”The support from the fans, the video they put together that encompasses my six years here, I loved it. It’s a great organization and I was very thankful to be a part of it.”Turris shared a few moments with his former teammates on the ice and admitted it was nice to be able to have some fun with the situation.The Predators tied it at 3 when Subban ripped a shot past Anderson with under five minutes remaining in regulation.The Senators scored two second-period goals to take a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes.McCormick, who was recalled from the minors on Tuesday, cut to the net and rang a shot in off the post for his third career goal. Ottawa took the lead on Paajarvi’s first with the Senators on a wraparound midway through the period.”There were so many great story lines in this game from so many players,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. ”You can really call this a solid team win.”Senators captain Erik Karlsson moved into sole possession of third place on the franchise’s points list (492) with an assist on Paajarvi’s goal.Subban opened the scoring 34 seconds into the game when his shot deflected in off Cody Ceci’s skate Custom New York Rangers Jerseys , but the Senators tied it on DiDomenico’s second in as many games. He took a pass in the slot and beat Saros with a wrist shot.The Predators regained the lead on Jarnkrok’s goal.NOTES: Ottawa’s Jean-Gabriel Pageau played his 300th career game. … Ottawa F Alex Burrows served his first of a 10-game suspension for kneeing New Jersey’s Taylor Hall on Tuesday night. Burrows decided not to appeal the suspension. … Ottawa was also without Mark Stone (knee), Derick Brassard (mobility), Bobby Ryan (hand), Nate Thompson (lower body) and Gabriel Dumont (lower body). … Nashville’s Filip Forsberg served his third of a three-game suspension for his hit on Rangers forward Jimmy Vesey.UP NEXTPredators: At Montreal on Saturday night.Senators: At Toronto on Saturday night.
