TORONTO — The Detroit Red Wings will return to the Scotiabank Arena Sunday night Womens Victor Rask Jersey , slightly more than two weeks after defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-4 there in overtime.The Maple Leafs scored three third-period goals to tie that game, Dec. 6., but the Red Wings came away with the two points on Dylan Larkin’s overtime goal.The Red Wings (15-17-5) have had little success since, going 2-5-1 including a 2-1 loss Saturday afternoon to the Florida Panthers at Little Caesars Arena.Article continues below ...The Maple Leafs (24-10-2) have gone 4-2-1 since that game, including a 5-3 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night with Mitch Marner scoring two goals and adding an assist.The game Sunday will be the third meeting this season between the teams. Toronto won 5-3 in Detroit Oct. 11.After winning against the Hurricanes at Carolina Thursday night, the Red Wings fell behind the Panthers early Saturday, and never really recovered. They were 0-for-4 on the power play, with two of the opportunities coming in the third period.“Another frustrating loss,” said Red Wings left winger Thomas Vanek, who scored his fifth of the season. “We need to score, I need to score more. It’s no secret about that. Sometimes it takes a little while for us to get going, and once we get going, we get those chances, but it takes 10 or 12 scoring chances to get something. We get two power plays in the third and got some good looks, but good looks aren’t good enough when you’re losing games.”“We had enough opportunities in the game, we have to score,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “The power play, overall in the game Alex DeBrincat Jersey , three of the four, were good. The third one was no good, the first of the third period. That was no good at all. But three of them were good, we had good looks and chances, but we didn’t score.”The Red Wings, already depleted by injuries, had more bad news before the game. Center Andreas Athanasiou (upper body), who was hurt in the victory over the Hurricanes at Carolina on Thursday was not able to play against Florida and is not expected to be ready to play Sunday.The Maple Leafs who were without left winger Zach Hyman, who has a sprained ankle, lost left winger Tyler Ennis during the game Saturday with a broken ankle.“So, he’s out for a while,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “We’ll figure out what we’re doing tonight. We’ve only got 11 forwards, so we’ll have to do something here.”Ennis had seven goals and four assists in 33 games.“He was coming on, right?” Babcock said. “His year didn’t go as good as he wanted last year, and he was starting to come so it’s unfortunate. As you guys know it’s all part of hockey. You’ve got to have a lot of depth to have success.”Marner has 12 goals and 38 assists this season with six of his goals coming in the past four games.“I think I’m just thinking more of shooting,” Marner said. “Getting to the net more and, when you get around that net, I think chances come more often so that’s just something I’ve been trying to focus on recently. I think also Hyman Minnesota Wild Hats Womens , John Tavares and now (Andreas Johnsson), all three of those guys can move the puck very well. For me, it’s just getting to the front of the net and try and bang in those second opportunities.” “Every night he’s one of our best players, if not the best player,” Babcock said. “He works really hard, he’s really good defensively, he does it right. In the end, if you do it right, you get rewarded. He’s getting rewarded.” WASHINGTON (AP) An independent watchdog has cleared Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke of wrongdoing when he gave a speech to a National Hockey League team owned by a campaign contributor.The Office of Special Counsel said Zinke’s June 2017 speech to the Vegas Golden Knights did not violate the Hatch Act, a federal law that prohibits executive branch officials from engaging in political activities. The team’s owner, Bill Foley, contributed to Zinke’s Republican congressional campaigns and to President Donald Trump’s inauguration.The special counsel also cleared Zinke in two other related complaints in which he was accused of mixing political and official business. The office investigates whistleblower complaints against the executive branch.In a May 31 letter obtained by The Associated Press, the special counsel’s office said Zinke addressed the team in his role as Interior secretary and spoke about leadership and the importance of teamwork. There’s no evidence that Zinke gave a political speech or otherwise engaged in political activity, the letter said.Zinke’s speech has drawn scrutiny because of the political contributions by the team’s owner and because Interior spent more than $12,000 on a charter flight from Nevada to Zinke’s home state of Montana for a speech the next day. Zinke has said no commercial flight was available for the late-night flight that allowed him to address the hockey team and speak to Western governors the next day in Whitefish, Montana.A spokeswoman for Zinke said the special counsel’s letter marked the second time Zinke has been cleared of wrongdoing in the Las Vegas speech. The Interior Department’s inspector general said in April that Zinke’s use of a chartered flight was reviewed and approved by department ethics officials. Still, the flight could have been avoided if Interior employees had worked with the hockey team to accommodate Zinke’s schedule, the report said.”As the inspector general pointed out http://www.blackhawksshoponline.com/authentic-artem-anisimov-jersey , the secretary always works with career ethics professionals and has followed all laws, rules and regulations related to his travel,” spokeswoman Heather Swift said.But Daniel Stevens, executive director of the Campaign for Accountability, an ethics watchdog group, said Zinke’s speech was clearly political. ”The truth is, Secretary Zinke charged taxpayers more than $12,000 for a charter flight so he could give a speech to the employees of one of his top campaign donors,” Stevens said.The special counsel’s office also cleared Zinke in a March 2017 trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Zinke appeared as a guest at a GOP fundraiser and posed for photos with high-end donors. Zinke’s official title was omitted from invitations to the event, and the invitation did not specify that donors who made significant contributions could pose with Zinke, the counsel’s office said.”Your activity did not violate the Hatch Act because you were not the impetus for those higher contributions,” the counsel’s office said in a letter to Zinke. The letter was signed by Erica Hamrick, deputy chief of the counsel’s Hatch Act unit.The counsel’s office also cleared Zinke in seven trips he made from March 2017 to October 2017 that mixed official and political business. Interior asked for and received proper reimbursement for political elements of each of those trips, Hamrick said.Hamrick’s letter did not address a complaint filed in March by two Democratic congressmen who said Zinke may have violated the Hatch Act at a Feb. 24 event in Pennsylvania to announce grants to clean up abandoned mining sites nationwide. State Rep. Rick Saccone, the GOP nominee for Congress in a March 13 special election, attended the event. Democrats called the location and timing of the speech suspicious. Saccone lost to Democrat Conor Lamb.
