PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A pep talk by new coach Scott Gordon has helped turn James van Riemsdyk’s game around.Van Riemsdyk recorded a hat trick Valtteri Filppula Jersey Womens , and Nolan Patrick had two goals and two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 7-4 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal with 7:56 left in the second period, scored on a deflection late in the second and added an empty-net goal 1:17 remaining in the third. He has five goals and two assists during a three-game point streak after having just one point in his previous seven games.The Flyers’ big offseason signing, van Riemsdyk had slumped and stood at six goals through 27 games when interim coach Gordon had a heart-to-heart with the veteran center following Philadelphia’s 5-3 loss at Washington last Tuesday in a game in which van Riemsdyk was demoted to the fourth line.“It was nice to get clarification,” said van Riemsdyk, who signed a five-year, $35 million contract last summer. “Sometimes you don’t even realize you’re not doing it the way they want you to do it.”Gordon, who replaced Dave Hakstol last month, was an assistant in Toronto, where van Riemsdyk prospered. The coach wanted to see van Riemsdyk get back to what worked with the Maple Leafs, particularly making his presence felt in front of the net.“It’s one of the areas I felt he can be better Fredrik Claesson Jersey Womens ,” Gordon said. “I know what he’s capable of. I can fall back to Toronto, what I saw there and what I wasn’t seeing here.”Van Riemsdyk’s first tally, a power-play goal with 7:56 left in the first period, turned the tide after Minnesota jumped to a quick 2-0 lead. Philadelphia’s power play came in ranked 30th, connecting at just 12.8 percent, and Gordon made major changes by installing five forwards onto the top unit. It paid off when van Riemsdyk deflected Jakub Voracek’s slap shot to pull the Flyers within 2-1. The goal was upheld after a video challenge by Minnesota.“It’s nice to see we were able to score in bunches tonight,” van Riemsdyk said.Philadelphia tied a season high for goals.Wayne Simmonds also had two goals for the Flyers. It was just the second win in the last 11 games for Philadelphia, which began Monday with the fewest points in the league.Jason Zucker, Marcus Foligno, Joel Eriksson Ek and Ryan Suter scored for Minnesota. The Wild dropped to 0-5-1 against Metropolitan Division teams.“You can’t make the mistakes we’re making out there and hope to win a hockey game Dylan DeMelo Jersey Womens ,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.Philadelphia outscored the Wild 3-1 in a busy second period.Foligno struck first, following his own miss from right in front of Carter Hart, to give Minnesota a 3-2 lead.Patrick entered without a goal in 24 straight games before the first of his two scores tied it at 3. Then he made it 4-3 with 4:32 remaining with a highlight-worthy play. Travis Sanheim took the initial slapper from the point, and Patrick moved his stick between his own legs and shot behind his back after the rebound caromed hard off the back boards for his seventh of the season.“That’s something you practice in the summer,” Patrick said.Asked if he had ever scored a goal like that, Patrick said: “In a beer league.”Simmonds lifted a shot over Devan Dubnyk with 5.2 seconds left. Boudreau pulled Dubnyk after the second, replacing him with Alex Stalock.A fluky goal with 11:42 left in the third pulled the Wild within 5-4. An attempted clearance from in front of Hart bounced off Suter and back into the goal. It was waved off at first, but the officials reversed their initial decision after a video replay showed that Eric Staal was pushed into Hart by defenseman Robert Hagg.Simmonds answered with his second of the game 2:25 later on a breakaway.Notes: Scott Laughton had three assists, while Giroux had two. … Philadelphia D Andrew MacDonald returned after missing the last six games with a lower-body injury. … Philadelphia improved to 9-9-3 against Western Conference teams.UP NEXTWild: Host Los Angeles on Tuesday night.Flyers: Host Boston on Wednesday night. WINNIPEG, Manitoba — It doesn’t have the cache that it did a few years ago Gabriel Gagne Jersey Womens , but the battle of Winnipeg Jets 1.0 vs. Winnipeg Jets 2.0 figures to be fierce anyway.As happy as Winnipeggers are that NHL hockey returned to their city in 2011, they are still bitter and upset about the circumstances that caused their beloved team to move south to the Arizona desert back in 1996 and be renamed the Phoenix Coyotes.One renaming later — replacing ‘Phoenix’ with ‘Arizona’ — hasn’t dulled the enthusiasm of Jets fans rooting against their former team. (An exception used to be made for Shane Doan, the last remaining member of Jets 1.0 on the Coyotes, who retired in the spring of 2017.)Article continues below ...The Jets are looking to build on their 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday as they start the back end of a six-game homestand on Saturday. Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien made a triumphant return to the lineup in that game, scoring a goal and assisting on two more after missing a pair of contests in which his often terrifying physical presence was sorely missed.While hardly terrorizing the league, the Jets are 4-2-1 and appear to be clicking on at least some cylinders – they scored three goals in the third period on Thursday – just a couple of games after some absolutely dreadful play, including blowing a 4-1 lead and losing to Edmonton on Tuesday. Some of the best news involves much-maligned center Bryan Little, who scored his second game-winning goal of the season – and week – against Vancouver and added an assist.“After that last game we were pretty hungry in the third period,” Little said in a post-game scrum. “It was our best period. Once we got that go-ahead goal it seemed like we turned it up even more. That’s what you need. That’s what we were looking to do.”At the other end of the ice, Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck finished with 26 saves.The Coyotes come to town on the heels of an impressive 4-1 road victory over the Chicago Blackhawks James Van Riemsdyk Jersey Womens , a win that improved their record to 2-4-0. Center Vinnie Hinostroza led the way with a pair of goals, his first two in his hometown since being traded this past summer.He was quick to share the credit with left winger Lawson Crouse, who got the Coyotes on the board in the first period.“That was our first 5-on-5 goal of the season, so [Crouse] and [center Clayton Keller] made a great play there and it was nice to see them score and it kind of got our team going,” he said in a post-game scrum at his locker.The Jets made one roster move, sending rookie winger Kristian Vesalainen down to the Manitoba Moose to get some much-needed playing time. The young Finn first round draft pick had one assist in five games playing primarily on the fourth line, but he’ll play at the top of the line-up in two weekend games.
