VANCOUVER Authentic Oscar Lindberg Jersey , British Columbia (AP) — Elias Pettersson’s teammates couldn’t quite find the words to describe how the rookie played on Friday night.The 19-year-old had two goals and three assists, scoring the tying goal in the final minute of regulation and then setting up Derrick Pouliot’s winner late in overtime to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 7-6 win over the Colorado Avalanche.“Wow,” Vancouver’s Bo Horvat said when asked about Pettersson’s performance.The Swedish center downplayed what was perhaps his most impressive play of the night — a jaw-dropping bank pass that sent the puck off the end boards right on the tape of Brock Boeser’s stick, setting the right wing up for a go-ahead goal early in the second period.“I was just trying to make a play and it worked out,” said Pettersson, who’s now the youngest player in Canucks history to have at least five points in a regular-season game.The play was simply the latest in a string of highlight-reel worthy moves that earned the teen the NHL’s rookie of the month nod for October.Canucks coach Travis Green said he wasn’t sure how to describe the way Pettersson has played through nine NHL games.“We knew he was supposed to be a pretty good player. And he’s been all of that,” he said.Petterson’s second goal of the night tied the score with 36 seconds remaining in regulation — the game’s sixth tie — just 1:01 after Nathan MacKinnon second of the game gave the Avalanche a 6-5 lead.“I got goosebumps when we tied the game late,” Pettersson said.Pouliot then took a pass from Pouliot on the right side of the goal and sent a shot that hit the crossbar and deflected off defenseman Gabriel Bourque and in with 22 seconds left on the clock in overtime.Boeser scored twice, and Loui Eriksson and Markus Granlund had the other goals for Vancouver in a game neither team lead by more than one goal. Jacob Markstrom stopped 23 shots.Sheldon Dries, Ian Cole, Alexander Kerfoot and Nikita Zadorov also scored for Colorado, and NHL points leader Mikko Rantanen had three assists. Philipp Grubauer finished with 30 saves.The Avalanche completed an 0-2-1 road trip, losing each game by one goal — including a 6-5 defeat at Calgary on Thursday night after giving up a 4-1 lead.“It’s been a weird seven periods,” Grubauer said. “It wasn’t the best road trip, to be sure. We’ll need to keep working, if we’re smart as a team we’ll learn from this road trip, learn from our mistakes.”Green had no complaints after the Canucks’ third straight win.“Wow. What a night. Seems like a lot of ups and downs. That was a fun game to coach Reilly Smith Jersey ,” he said. “That was a hell of a win.”Zadorov gave Colorado a 5-4 lead 1:30 into the third period with first of the season.Granlund responded for the Canucks on a power play just past the midpoint of the period. Vancouver right wing Nikolay Goldobin struggled to hang on to the puck in front of the net, but found a way to dish it to Granlund, who popped it in past Grubauer.The teams combined for seven goals in the second period, with Dries starting the flurry 1:38 in as he redirected a shot from Kerfoot into the net to tie the score 1-1.Boeser got his second of the night at 5:18 on that nifty pass from Pettersson to put Vancouver back ahead. Just 50 seconds, Cole tied it as he wound up from the blue line and put a shot in the top right corner of the net.Eriksson put Vancouver ahead 3-2 at 8:47, settling a bouncing puck and popping it past Grubauer for his first. MacKinnon tied things up again less than two minutes later, scoring off a give-and-go with Rantanen.Kerfoot gave Colorado its first lead with 7:24 left in the middle period, splitting the Vancouver defense and firing a wrist shot past Markstrom.Pettersson tied it 4-4 as he scooped up a rebound at the top of the crease and poked it in with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the period.Boeser got the Canucks on the board just 58 seconds into the game after Pettersson slid him a long pass across the ice. The right wing got the puck on his tape and flipped a shot past Grubauer.NOTES: Four players tallied their first goals of the season on Friday. Zadorov and Cole for the Avs, and Eriksson and Pouliot for the Canucks. … Pettersson now has nine goals and six assists in nine games. He’s the 16th player in the league to score nine or more goals through the first nine games of his career, and just the sixth to complete the feat outside of the league’s inaugural season.UP NEXTAvalanche: Host Nashville on Wednesday night.Canucks: Visit Detroit on Tuesday night to open a six-game trip. Defenseman Shea Weber will make his debut as the 30th captain in the 109-year history of the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday when the Canadiens host the Carolina Hurricanes at Bell Centre.The 33-year-old was named captain in October, but has been out of the lineup after undergoing offseason knee and ankle surgery. He practiced with David Schlemko as his partner on Monday, was on the first power-play unit and led the team’s stretch at the end of practice. It will be Weber’s first game in almost a year: his last game was Dec. 16, 2017.“I feel good. I feel really good,” Weber told the team’s website after practice Monday. “There were a lot of ups and downs. It’s been a long time. It’s been frustrating, it’s been hard, it’s been grueling, but we’re here. I’m excited right now to get going.”Article continues below ...Weber said it’s been hard to watch his teammates without being able to help. The Canadiens are off to a decent start without him with a 11-8-5 record and were holding the second wild card position in the Eastern Conference on Monday. The Canadiens are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on home ice Saturday and have slipped to 3-4-3 in their past 10 games Michael Ferland Jersey Womens , so Weber’s return comes at a good time.“If this was all in the summer, it would be a different story than watching 20 games of your team going to war every night and fighting and battling and not being able to help them,” Weber said. “Obviously, I’m just going to try and keep simple, help out any way I can and hopefully help us move forward.”Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher said Weber’s return has the players as excited as the Montreal fans.“It’s going to be a big boost, but I think we’re all excited to watch him play,” said Gallagher on montrealcanadiens.com. “He’s one of the best players in our game for a reason. He has been for a long time. Just as a fan of the game, I think you’re excited to see him back on the ice.”With Weber’s return, the Canadiens placed defenseman Karl Alzner and his $4.27 million cap hit on waivers. If he clears at noon on Tuesday, as expected, he will be sent to the Canadiens American Hockey League farm team, the Laval Rocket. Alzner is the defenseman less likely to be claimed on waivers because of his contract.The Hurricanes are coming off a 4-1 loss Saturday to the New York Islanders in Brooklyn, a game in which the Islanders scored on their first two shots of the game. The Hurricanes, who lead the NHL in average shots per game with 39.9, were on their heels against the Islanders and will be looking to change that against the Canadiens.“We just didn’t come ready to go from the get-go. We knew what they were going to do. We talked about it and had a game plan, but from the first shift on, we didn’t do it at all William Karlsson Jersey ,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour told NHL.com. “It’s a tough one because we wanted to keep moving forward, but, man, I’ve never seen us play that bad. That was really poor, to a man. Each guy — we didn’t come ready to go, and we got what we deserved.“We wouldn’t have beat a minor league team. That’s what we looked like out there tonight. I don’t even think they played well. It was a gross game for two periods. They capitalized on mistakes we gave them, and they hunkered down. They knew we weren’t fighting through anything. We made it pretty easy on them.”The Hurricanes are 4-5-1 on the road.“It wasn’t there (Saturday). We weren’t ready to show up,” Hurricanes forward Lukas Wallmark told NHL.com. “We win together, and we lose together. … We have to be better than that.”The Hurricanes called up defenseman Jake Bean and forward Valentin Zykov from the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL on Sunday. If he plays, Bean, 20, will make his NHL debut. He was the Hurricanes first pick (No. 13 overall) in the 2016 NHL Draft. He made his professional debut last spring with the Checkers after a dazzling junior career. The native of Calgary had 196 points (49 goals, 147 assists) in 219 games in the Western Hockey League.Zykov, 23, returns to the Hurricanes after a conditioning assignment. He had three assists in 13 games with the Hurricanes before being sent to Charlotte.
