COLUMBUS , Ohio (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau and the goal scorers on both sides had a fun, wild Tuesday night.For Calgary goalie Mike Smith? Not so much.“Not the way you draw it up,” Smith said.Gaudreau had two goals and two assists, and the Flames scored five goals in the second period to rally past the Columbus Blue Jackets 9-6.“It’s just one of those games,” said Smith, who combined with Dave Rittich to stop 24 shots. “The chances were there and the pucks were finding a way to get in.”Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said this game was unlike any of the more than 1,200 previous ones he’s coached.“They had 11 scoring chances and they scored nine goals,” Tortorella said. “I have never been in a game like this.”Cam Atkinson netted a hat trick for Columbus to extend his point streak to 11 games, but the Blue Jackets lost their second straight.“We played a really good first period, then for whatever reason sat back and let them play,” Atkinson said. “I don’t think we checked hard. We made it a really easy game for them, and they just capitalized.”Sean Monahan also had two goals and two assists for Calgary, which scored five straight goals for a 6-4 lead during the second period.Monahan opened that barrage 1:55 into the second, and Elias Lindholm, Matthew Tkachuk, Noah Hanifin and TJ Brodie followed with goals. Tkachuk , Hanifin and Brodie scored in a span of 1:53.“It’s pretty crazy how often we come back from those leads other teams have,” Hanifin said. “It’s not the play we want to play. We don’t really want to give up six goals, but sometimes it happens. To win, it’s huge.”Monahan, Gaudreau and Austin Czarnik each scored in the third period for Calgary, which earned a point in its fifth straight game to stay atop the Pacific Division and improved to 17-9-2.“The guys were resilient. They stuck with it,” Calgary coach Bill Peters said. “Down 4-1, they could have rolled over and packed it in. They did a good job to get back in the game.”Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 18 of 26 shots for the Blue Jackets before being replaced in the third period by Joonas Korpisalo.Zach Werenski, Josh Anderson and Nick Foligno also scored for Columbus.NOTES: The Flames are 9-0-0 when Monahan has at least two points in a game this season and 8-0-1 when Gaudreau has a multipoint game. … Werenski’s goal was the 100th point of his career. … The Blue Jackets, who allowed just one power-play goal over their previous seven games, gave up three Tuesday.UP NEXTColumbus plays at Philadelphia on Thursday.Calgary heads home to face Minnesota on Thursday. WASHINGTON (AP) — Tom Wilson got back on the score sheet and put himself back under the microscope that has become a part of his existence in the NHL.Wilson scored again before being ejected for a questionable hit and Nicklas Backstrom had a hat trick and four points in the Washington Capitals‘ 6-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night that extended the defending Stanley Cup champions’ winning streak to seven games. Wilson had a short-handed goal and showed some of his best attributes as a power forward and penalty killer before getting kicked out of the game for a polarizing hit on Brett Seney that earned him a match penalty and at least another look from the league’s department of player safety.“He’s huge for our team,” center Evgeny Kuznetsov said of Wilson. “You can see he’s playing well and he scored the goals, he make those dirty plays when you’ve got to battle for the puck, when you go in the corner. It’s not easy to play there, and he play unbelievable for us. That’s why he’s such a big piece for us.”Wilson now has seven goals and 13 points in nine games since coming back from a lengthy suspension. He extended his career-best goal streak to five games and point streak to seven games and at the same time raised questions about whether he’s headed toward further discipline.After Seney released the puck and it had gone into the corner late in the second period, Wilson skated up from behind and hit him with his left shoulder. Wilson was assessed a match penalty for an illegal check to the head , which carries with it an automatic suspension that the NHL must review but could decide to rescind.Wilson, who was given a 20-game suspension that was reduced to 14 for an illegal check to the head in Washington’s preseason finale, could avoid being suspended this time. After review, he did not make principal contact to Seney’s head, it did not look like a predatory play and the Devils forward returned at the start of the third.Seney said the main contact was to the back of his left shoulder. Capitals coach Todd Reirden considered it incidental contact and couldn’t believe how it was called a penalty.“I think any other player, I don’t know, it’s maybe an interference call,” Reirden said. “He’s not even attempting to make a hit, and we get a five-minute penalty that could’ve cost us the game. This guy is doing everything he can to try to play the right way, and this is how things are happening.”The Capitals killed off all five minutes of the major penalty. Wilson did not speak to reporters.Backstrom had a hat trick for the first time since Dec. 13, 2014, and added an assist for a four-point game. Andre Burakovsky also scored for Washington, which got 33 saves from Braden Holtby, including two on breakaways by Seney and another on former Capitals forward Marcus Johansson.“Breakaways are almost completely different than the rest of the game,” said Holtby, who has won five consecutive starts. “You almost have to view them as two different things because you play them different.”Holtby faced 36 shots and kept the Capitals ahead all game. After the Devils got within one goal in the final two minutes Vegas Golden Knights Hats Authentic , Alex Ovechkin scored an empty-netter, his 626th goal that put him into sole possession of 15th on the NHL’s all-time list, and Backstrom completed the hat trick with his own empty-netter.Travis Zajac, Nico Hischier and Johansson scored and Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 29 shots for the Devils, who have lost four in a row and six of seven.“We have not had the answers of late and we need to find them,” defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. “We’re not playing good enough hockey. We have the players in here. We have the talent. We need to find ways to play a more complete game, to play the whole 60 minutes and to find ways to not make these mistakes.”Hurt by a bad line change, a misplay by Kinkaid and other mental lapses, New Jersey fell to 2-10-1 on the road this season.“It’s a situation where you have to continue to work at it, look at solutions and look at different ways where you could do a better job and the players can do a better job because it’s certainly not good enough,” coach John Hynes said. “We all know what we are supposed to do. Now we’ve got to do it regularly. That’s the challenge.”NOTES: According to the NHL, linesmen Brandon and Travis Gawryletz are the third known set of brothers to work the same game after Paul and Greg Devorski from 1993-2005 and Ernie and Sibby Mundey from 1946-49. The Gawryletz brothers officiated one previous game together on Jan. 20. … Kuznetsov returned after missing the past six games with a suspected concussion. … RW T.J. Oshie missed his seventh consecutive game with a suspected concussion. … New Jersey C Michael McLeod, a 2016 first-round pick, made his NHL debut.UP NEXTDevils: Return home to host the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.Capitals: Look to extend their winning streak to eight against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.
