NEWARK Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , N.J. (AP) — Pavel Zacha is back from the minor leagues and brimming with confidence.Zacha scored twice, Taylor Hall had a goal and an assist, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-2 on Wednesday night.The teams were tied 1-1 in the first period before New Jersey scored four straight goals. Zacha had two during that stretch after returning from Binghamton of the American Hockey League a week ago.“I’m trying to focus on my game, on my skating and being hard to play against and just trying to win my puck battles and going to the net,” Zacha said. “And you see guys are finding me with great passes. … I had a lot of chances before, but now they’re going in for me.“The confidence is a little better now (than) before I went to the AHL.”Kyle Palmieri and Nico Hischier also scored for the Devils, and Keith Kinkaid stopped 24 shots to end the team’s two-game skid.Jonathan Drouin and Max Domi scored for Montreal. Domi has a point in 11 straight games. Carey Price made 23 saves.The line of Zacha, Marcus Johansson and Jesper Bratt is taking some needed pressure off Hall.“That line has been a really effective line,” Hall said. “I thought in the last four, five games or so, and I think you see Pav kind of taking the puck himself and attacking on his own. He’s such a big, strong skater and that’s what he has to do.“He should have more confidence now and should feel good with the puck www.goldenknightsshoponline.com , and we need a guy like him to step in and play well for the rest of the season.”Hischier was back in the lineup after missing four games due to a thumb injury.This was the second straight game that Price has allowed five goals. The Canadiens lost 5-4 to the Washington Capitals on Monday.“Tonight was a game you just throw in the garbage,” Drouin said. “We let Carey down. We didn’t play well offensively or defensively. … We didn’t match their intensity, and when you don’t do that, you’re not going to win many games.”NOTES: Devils F Joey Anderson left in the first period with an undisclosed injury. … Devils D Marco Mueller and Will Butcher played in their 100th game. … F Brian Boyle, who is back skating with the Devils, missed his fifth straight game with an upper-body injury. … The Devils assigned D Steve Santini to Binghamton of the American Hockey League. … Montreal F Shea Weber missed his 22nd consecutive game with a knee injury.UP NEXTCanadiens: Play at Buffalo on Friday night.Devils: Host the New York Islanders on Friday night. NHL executives, coaches and players are quick to say the game is faster than ever and there is technology available to track how quickly players skate and how hard they shoot.Vegas Golden Knights general manager George McPhee calls it the ”next wave” in the evolution of the top hockey league in the world, but what happens to that information is secret for now.”I don’t tell people what we do,” McPhee said as his Pacific Division champion team prepares for its playoff opener against the Los Angeles Kings.Younger, faster – and cheaper – players are pushing out older, slower – and more expensive – veterans to kick the pace of the game up a notch. When Radim Vrbata announced he was retiring after this season, the 36-year-old Florida Panthers forward acknowledged the speed of the game played a part in his decision to leave the league.”The speed of the game has really jumped over the last couple of years Vegas Golden Knights T-Shirts Womens ,” Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said. ”You can tell with your eyes. We don’t have any chips in jerseys or any of that stuff.”The league is working with a company, or companies, it will not disclose to use camera-based technology to track players and pucks.”We are still in the evaluation stage,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in an email. ”We have generally shared the results of our testing as part of an overview of the technology as opposed to on a team or player basis. Ultimately, I would envision most (although maybe not all) of the acquired data would be made available to the clubs, and the public.”Iceberg Sports Analytics, which says it is working with the NHL, uses cameras to track the players and the puck 10 times per second.”We get a limitless amount of information from these coordinates collected by using machine/deep learning algorithms,” Iceberg global sales director Scott Vargas said.For a while at least, the public may be kept in the dark on some of those details.At the 2018 Winter Olympics , microchips were put in the back of jerseys tracking cameras were perched high above the ice. Data on speed, acceleration Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Womens , stopping, distance traveled, shift lengths and ice time was available to teams. How fast a player skated sometimes flashed up video boards in the arena, much to the chagrin of former NHL defenseman James Wisniewski.”I think for people on TV to see how fast you’re going down the wing, really, does it really matter?” Wisniewski asked.Daly said open questions include how quickly the tracking will grow and which technologies are used. But he believes it will eventually become prevalent in the NHL and in other major professional sports leagues.”Fans and other observers of the game want and demand more and more information all the time,” Daly said. ”It enhances the way they consume the sport. And it is incumbent on us to respond to and satisfy that demand.”The NHL Players’ Association, meanwhile, will only say it is ready for more dialogue on the topic.”We look forward to continuing our discussions with the league to ensure the successful implementation of player and puck tracking,” NHLPA general counsel Don Zavelo said.Even in the Detroit Red Wings‘ dressing room, there wasn’t a consensus.”If you track players and show how fast you’re skating, I think fans will be able to appreciate it and it will look cool on TV Vegas Golden Knights Hats Womens ,” Red Wings center Dylan Larkin said .Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg provided another perspective.”I’m not a big fan of that because eventually that will be used as a disadvantage for players,” Zetterberg said. ”Even though they say it won’t be, it will be in contracts and it will be used against players in all different areas with management and coaching issues.”Daly insisted he doesn’t buy that argument.”Our experience with enhanced statistics is entirely the opposite,” Daly said. ”Players and agents have historically and virtually without exception been able to use enhanced statistics and analytics to their individual benefit. That’s just a fact.”It is also true, without debate, the league’s large, lumbering defensemen have been replaced by smaller, faster players on the blue line. And up front, the days of having enforcers play limited minutes to rough up opponents are over because every team tries to roll four lines of swift skaters who can match up with the best opponents.When teams turn the puck over in the neutral zone, it is coming back at them in a hurry. Retreating and regrouping is more rare these days. Kings President Luc Robitaille said beyond scoring chances for and against, how quickly his team and opponents get the puck up the ice is an important statistic.”Everyone is measuring how fast you’re moving the puck end to end,” he said Custom Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys , declining to share details.”Teams that have success are moving faster. Look at Vegas,” Robitaille added. ”Everyone has been wondering why they’re winning and it is because they have a lot of guys with speed.”Rule changes, philosophical shifts by teams and improved training are among the contributing factors to create the need for speed.After the league emerged from a lockout in 2005, players were allowed to make longer passes up the ice to create more scoring chances and officials were told to have zero tolerance for clutching-and-grabbing defensive tactics.”When the red line was taken out of the game that sped the game up,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. ”Now, players come into the league more recklessly fearless. They’re not afraid to skate as fast they can. They’re not worried about what’s waiting for them at the other end. The game has become all about stretch passes into two and three zones. That is making the game look really fast.”—AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this report.—
