TAMPA Youth Jordan Weal Jersey , Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning found their offense, and in a big way.Victor Hedman, Cedric Paquette and Yanni Gourde had first-period goals, and the Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 8-2 Saturday night.Brayden Point scored in both the second and third periods, and Andrei Vasilevskiy had 30 saves for Tampa Bay. Alex Killorn, Nikita Kucherov and J.T. Miller had the other Lightning goals.Tampa Bay, which led the NHL in goals last season, had scored just twice over 125 minutes in its first two games. The Lightning were held scoreless during the final 159:27 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Final by eventual Stanley Cup champion Washington.“Whether you get one or you get eight  , your goal is to win the game,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. “But I’m glad we only gave up two.”Columbus got goals from Josh Anderson and Oliver Bjorkstrand, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 23 shots.Columbus coach John Tortorella has been rotating his goaltending between Bobrovsky and Joonas Korpisalo.As the deficit mounded, Tortorella “had no thought about taking” Bobrovsky out.Hedman and Paquette scored before Gourde put the Lightning up 3-0 late in the first and stopped an 0 for 10 season-opening Tampa Bay power-play slide.“We had a strong presence in front of the net,” Hedman said. “A lot of the goals were scored around the crease.”Anderson, who beat Tampa Bay’s Dan Girardi to wipeout a potential icing and soon after scored, and Bjorkstrand cut the Blue Jackets deficit to one in the second.Point’s goal with 44.6 seconds left in the second made it 4-2.“Just a kick in the teeth, that fourth goal as far as the bad bounce (off the end boards) Scott Laughton Jersey ,” Tortorella said. “We found our game, had them on their heels a bit.”Point and Alex Killorn both had a power-play goal during a four-goal third-period that also saw Kucherov get his first goal.Miller got Tampa Bay’s fourth power-play goal with two-tenths of second left.“We really had them on the ropes in the second,” Columbus left wing Nick Foligno said. “We don’t handle momentum swings well when they’re going against us.”NOTES: Julian Green was among a group of U.S. Men’s National Soccer team players in attendance. They were watching both teams play soccer during a pregame workout when the Blue Jackets had their ball get stuck on an overhanging vent. After players attempted to dislodge it with a pole, a stadium worker retrieved the ball using a portable lift. … Columbus D Seth Jones, who sprained his knee during the preseason, could be back in two to four weeks. … Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos got his first assist this season but has no goals over 15 games, dating to last season.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: Host Philadelphia Thursday night.Lightning: Play the fourth of a five-game homestand Tuesday night against Carolina. WASHINGTON — After years of carrying the weight of unfulfilled expectations on their shoulders, Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals traded it in for the weight of the actual Stanley Cup Womens Sean Couturier Jersey , which they paraded around the Las Vegas ice after a 4-3 win in Game 5 of the finals in June.On Wednesday night, the Capitals will raise a banner to the Capital One Arena rafters and begin their title defense against the Boston Bruins.While their roster is mostly unchanged, new coach Todd Reirden will make his debut. After four years as Barry Trotz’s top assistant, Reirden ascended when Trotz stepped down and ultimately took the New York Islanders’ top job.Article continues below ...Ovechkin, who recently turned 33, scored 87 points (49 goals) in the regular season and added 27 points (15 goals) in 24 postseason games as he finally put to rest questions about his ability to lead a team to the Cup.“It looks like he’s in the best mode ever,” center Nicklas Backstrom told the Washington Post. “He’s just laughing all the time, which is great. He’s going to carry this over  , I think.”Washington will likely open without top-line winger Tom Wilson, who was ejected from Sunday’s preseason finale against the St. Louis Blues for an illegal check on Oskar Sundqvist, who lay motionless before being helped from the ice. Wilson was slated for an in-person hearing with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Wednesday.Wilson’s absence combined with several injuries led the Capitals to claim forward Dmitrij Jaskin off waivers from the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday. Jaskin, 25, totaled six goals and 11 assists in 76 games last season.“We like the player,” general manager Brian MacLellan told the Washington Post. “We think the player has some upside and with the possible suspension of Tom we’re adding a big body that can make some plays and go to the net and has a similar skill set as Tom.”Washington has won 12 straight regular-season games in four seasons against Boston.After starting 6-7-4 last season, the Bruins soared to a 50-20-12 record, good for second place in the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference. They defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games in the first round but fell to the Tampa Bay Lightning in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals.The Bruins’ success was a bit ahead of schedule as they boast one of the youngest rosters in the league.Boston will be missing a key player in the opener as well. Defenseman Torey Krug injured his left ankle in the final preseason game. He’s in a walking boot and will be evaluated in three weeks. Krug had 59 points (14 goals Travis Konecny Jersey , 45 assists) in 76 games last season.“It’s a big loss,” center Patrice Bergeron told the Boston Herald. “He’s a huge part of our defense, power play as well. He’s the quarterback up there. We’re going to miss him. That being said, it’s an opportunity for someone else to step up and be good for us.”
