that it hasn’t been business as usual for the Detroit Red Wings the past couple of seasons Adidas Zach Bogosian Jersey , but he’s confident the man to bring them back to the glory days is the man they currently have in charge.The Red Wings’ governor announced Saturday the club had agreed to a new two-year contract with general manager Ken Holland.”Around these parts, we’re used to be being in the playoffs, we’re used to competing for Stanley Cups, and believe me, that’s where we all want to be,” Ilitch said. ”That’s a lot of fun. To get back there, it’s a process. We’ve done it before and we’re going to do it again.”We think Ken is the right guy to lead that for our organization Joakim Nordstrom Jersey Womens , so we’re thrilled to have him back.”Detroit’s 25-year run of consecutive postseason appearances came to an end in 2015-16 and the Red Wings have missed the playoffs the past two seasons. They entered their final game of the season on Saturday against the New York Islanders 27th overall in the NHL with a 30-39-12 record.Still, Ilitch pointed to Holland’s performance as both a scout and the team’s director of scouting as the Red Wings assembled the talent pool that won four Stanley Cups between 1997-2008 as an indication that Holland can mastermind the current rebuild.”Ken Holland has had the experience of seeing a Detroit Red Wings team in the 1980s build from the ground all the way up to the Stanley Cup champion,” Ilitch said. ”That’s the blueprint for our future and Ken knows that.”Holland has traded to restructure the team and holds an NHL-high 11 picks in the upcoming entry draft.”I understand there’s a big challenge ahead here going forward,” Holland said. ”I look forward to the challenge of rebuilding the Detroit Red Wings.”Holland indicated that he would address the future of coach Jeff Blashill on Tuesday when the Wings have scheduled their locker cleanout day. OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Despite giving up two goals 8 seconds apart in the final minute of the second period to tie the game, the Carolina Hurricanes seemed to have no issues with a letdown in the third period on Sunday.Justin Williams scored the winning goal and broke a 4-4 tie with a power-play goal at 7:34 of the third and the Hurricanes defeated the Ottawa Senators 5-4.One minute later, Williams nearly scored again but he was robbed with a great glove save from Andres Nilsson Christopher Tanev Jersey , who came on in relief of Senators starter Marcus Hogberg in the second period.Justin Faulk and Brock McGinn each had a goal and an assist and Carolina won its fourth straight game. Jaccob Slavin and Dougie Hamilton also scored for the Hurricanes, who got a 27-save performance from Petr Mrazek.“It was surprisingly easy to (mentally) park (the end of the second period). I know you’ll probably look at me and roll your eyes, but good teams pick each other up,” Williams said.“Mrazek came in and said ‘that was on me’ and we instantly said ‘No, no, no. You’ve had our back all the time, so it’s time for us to pick you up’ Authentic Daniel Sedin Jersey , and that’s what teams do, they pick each other up. They don’t let someone stew about it and we had a great third period and won the game.”Jean-Gabriel Pageau tied the game 4-4 in his return to Ottawa’s lineup after missing the entire season to date with a torn Achilles he suffered on the first day of training camp.Just 8 seconds earlier in the second period, Rudolfs Balcers scored his first NHL goal in his second career game as the Senators had their losing skid stretch to eight games. Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel also scored for Ottawa.Hogberg started in goal for the Senators and allowed three goals on 16 shots. Nilsson turned aside 11 of the 13 shots he faced.“It was fast. The first few shifts were shorter than I expected,” said Pageau of his first game since April. “It’s hard to prepare at this level and it doesn’t matter how hard you work out, it’s totally different when you come into a game like that.“Right off the bat I tried to get myself in the game. I take pride in playing for the Sens and playing this game at home after everything I’ve gone through since the first day of camp. It means a lot to me.”The Hurricanes had a fast start, scoring on two of their first three shots less than five minutes into the game.Faulk opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 1:12 of the first period with a point shot that beat Hogberg. Then, at 4:28 Womens Derek Dorsett Jersey , McGinn scored a short-handed goal as he slid a backhand through Hogberg’s legs on a breakaway.“We’re not doing enough of the little things to win right now and it sucks,” said Senators forward Chris Tierney, who had two assists.“We didn’t start well and that hurt us. It just seems like every night it’s something else and we need to figure out a way to get everything going at once to win in this league.”That was all the scoring in the opening period although the Senators created several good opportunities, but were unable to beat Mrazek.Ottawa finally did break through at 2:32 of the second period when Duchene beat Mrazek from in tight after a cross-crease pass from Bobby Ryan.The Hurricanes regained their two-goal lead and knocked Hogberg from the Senators’ goal at the same time as Slavin scored at 6:13 with a slap shot.Ottawa got that one back at 12:17 on a power play as Dzingel beat Mrazek with a backhand, but at 14:54 Hamilton beat Nilsson to put the Hurricanes up 4-2. It was just the second shot Nilsson had faced.Then came the final-minute fireworks as Balcers scored at 19:12 and Pageau scored 8 seconds later to tie the game 4-4 heading to the third.Notes: Nick Paul and Ben Harpur were scratches for the Senators while Clark Bishop was a scratch for the Hurricanes. … Sunday’s matchup was the first of three this season between the teams.
