(SportsNetwork. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-joe-panik-giants-jersey/ .com) - Alex Ovechkin will try to end the longest point drought of his career against a familiar foe on Saturday night, when the Washington Capitals visit the Tampa Bay Lightning. Ovechkin has been held without a point in five straight games for the first time in his career and it doesnt come as much of a surprise that the Capitals have lost three of their last four. The 29-year-old had a game-high seven shots on net in Wednesdays 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings, who scored three times in the third period to pull out the win. Evgeny Kuznetsov and Troy Brouwer provided the goals in Washingtons second straight loss, while Braden Holtby made just 18 saves. I thought we were good up until midway through the second period, maybe even to the end of the second period, but then we started taking a few chances, noted Brouwer. Couple of needless turnovers. Theyre really good with picking pucks. Washington will hope that Ovechkin can continue his career-long success against the Lightning, a former division rival. In 54 career games versus Tampa Bay, Ovechkin has 35 goals and 71 points, with seven goals and two assists in the most recent five meetings. He has produced more points against only one team, posting 82 points in 55 career meetings with the Atlanta/Winnipeg franchise. The Lightning got a two-goal effort from their dynamic scorer last time out, with Steven Stamkos scoring twice and collecting an assist in Thursdays 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Jason Garrison potted the deciding power-play tally, while Vladislav Namestnikov also scored and Valtteri Filppula had three assists in his clubs fourth victory in five games. Ben Bishop aided the effort with 24 saves. We found a way to win, Stamkos said. Winning is contagious, so its nice to get on a roll here. Tampa Bay will play the third contest of a four-game homestand. The Capitals have a point in six straight meetings with the Lightning, winning five in a row before a 1-0 shootout loss in the most recent meeting on April 13. They have won two straight in Tampa Bay. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-gaylord-perry-giants-jersey/ . PAUL, Minn – The clock lingered for what seemed like an interminable two minutes and 51 seconds before Mark Fraser finally escaped to the bench during a wildly one-sided first period of an eventual loss to Boston. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-denard-span-giants-jersey/ . -- The way Ted Ligety carved into turns looked so easy.TORONTO - Trevor Smith scored twice and added an assist as the Toronto Marlies downed the visiting Lake Erie Monsters 5-1 on Sunday in American Hockey League play. The 28-year-old, who was recently named Torontos new captain, has had a strong start to the season as hes produced three goals, two of which are game winners, and five points in his first two outings. "So far so good," said Smith of the pair Marlies victories. "These are the good times, you got to really embrace them. Theres going to be some learning times coming this way so weve just got to embrace the wins." Knowing this seasons squad would be young and raw -- the Marlies dressed 13 players Sunday 23 or younger -- head coach Steve Spott challenged the veteran Smith to be the teams go-to guy and hes been impressed with what hes seen so far. "He knows what to say, when to say it and on the ice you can see how dominant he is," said Spott. "Hes got to be a point a game guy for us, thats the pressure. He knows that, hes accepted that and he likes that challenge." Defenceman T.J. Brennan had a goal and an assist for the Marlies (2-0-0) while Greg McKegg and Tyler Biggs scored the others. Mark Olver scored the lone goal for the Monsters (1-2-0), who were playing their third game in three days. Drew MacIntyre made 20 saves for the win as Calvin Pickard stopped 28-of-31 shots in defeat. Biggs opened the scoring early in the second with a short-handed goal when he poked home the rebound off Smiths breakaway. Biggs then set the physical tone, throwing a big hit on Lake Erie defenceman Markus Lauridsen behind the Monsters net. Lake Erie tied it 1-1 on the power play as Olver got around Marlies defenceman Petter Granberg and, despite losinng control of the puck, managed to get it between the legs of MacIntyre. http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-matt-cain-giants-jersey/. Smith gave the Marlies a 2-1 lead on the power play at 17:59 of the second as a floater fooled Pickard glove side. Smith made it 3-1 when he finished off a feed from Spencer Abbott early in the third. Abbott, who was a minus-2 in just over five minutes of ice time in the Maple Leafs 5-4 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators Saturday night, was reassigned to the Marlies along with Jamie Devane Sunday morning. "They gave us two different elements," said Spott of the returnees. "Spencer gives us some skill and he plays a skilled high-tempo type game. Jamie obviously gives us some physicality and grit." Brennan and McKegg scored empty-net goals late in the third to put the game out of reach. Spott admitted his team was able to take advantage of a tired Monsters team who split back-to-back games in Abbotsford on Friday and Saturday before travelling to Toronto. "We caught a break, I think, with the schedule," Spott said. "We tried to use that to our advantage today. We were able to wear them down." Toronto went 1-for-8 on the power play while Lake Erie scored once on five chances with the man advantage. An area of concern for the Marlies as they now have a week of practice is their 5-on-3 play. The club has had numerous opportunities to score while up two men in two games to start the year, but havent been able to do it. "We will work a lot on our 5-on-3 this week," said Spott. "Weve got to give their goalie some credit, but ultimately, we have to punish teams when they take those penalties." Toronto doesnt play again until next Saturday when they host the St Johns IceCaps.
