Andersen finished with 34 saves.”We were close to winning, but sometimes you’re going to get the short end of the stick,” Andersen said. It’s positive that we’re playing well, but we have to keep working.”Hagelin scored the game’s first goal on a re-directed pass off the rush for his seventh 3 1/2 minutes in, and Brown tied it when he beat Murray to the blocker side with a one-timer for his 13th a little more than three minutes later.Bozak gave Toronto the lead with his ninth midway through the period when he converted a rebound from the top of the crease and Malkin tied it 1:11 later with his 33rd of the season and point No. 900.Aston-Reese put Pittsburgh in front at 5:21 of the second period when he settled a rebound in front and pushed it past Andersen’s outstretched left pad for his third goal in three games.Marleau tied it 3-3 with a power-play goal from between the circles for his 20th with 4:14 remaining in the second.Maatta provided the game-winner in the third and Murray helped the Penguins pick up another win at home.”You never want to give up the lead or give teams a chance to get back into it, and we’ve been doing a good job at that, especially when we get the lead,” Murray said. ”It was a pretty even game for the most part Womens Sean Couturier Jersey , but I think we outplayed them in the third, and that turned out to be the difference.”NOTES: Toronto’s Zach Hyman left midway through the third period after Maatta pushed him into the end boards. … The Penguins’ home win streak is tied for the third-longest in team history. … Malkin has a point in seven straight home games. … Penguins C Sidney Crosby’s 10-game home point streak ended. … Pittsburgh D Justin Schultz missed Saturday’s game because of illness.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Scott Niedermayer accomplished a lot during his 18-year NHL career. The Hall of Fame defenseman added one more to the list on Sunday night when he became the ninth player to have his number retired by two teams.The Anaheim Ducks raised Niedermayer’s No. 27 to the rafters at the Honda Center, honoring their former team captain, who helped lead them to their only Stanley Cup title in 2007. He first had his number retired by the New Jersey Devils in 2011.The Ducks honored Niedermayer before their game against Washington and culminated a week of events celebrating the franchise’s 25th season. Niedermayer signed with Anaheim in 2005 after 13 seasons with New Jersey. He scored 60 of his 172 career goals in five seasons with the Ducks, and remains the franchise leader in goals, points (264) and power-play goals (39) among defensemen. Niedermayer also held the assists mark until Cam Fowler passed him during the Ducks’ 5-2 win against the Capitals.Ever the consummate teammate, Niedermayer mentioned every player and coach on the 2007 title team before his number was raised.The most important teammate though on that club was his brother http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-shayne-gostisbehere-jersey , Rob. Scott Niedermayer said after the ceremony that the 2003 Stanley Cup Final, where his Devils beat Rob’s Ducks in seven games in 2003, put the wheels in motion on trying to play with his younger brother.“When we were 10 years old we would have loved to beat the heck out of each other in a Stanley Cup game and rub it in. When we were older in 2003 it was a different story,” Scott Niedermayer said. “To win a Stanley Cup here exceeded what I thought was going to happen.”Niedermayer won the Conn Smythe Trophy, which is given to the Most Valuable Player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, after the Ducks defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games.“The bigger the game, the better he played. He is the greatest champion of our generation,” said former Anaheim great Paul Kariya. “His ability to control the game on offense and defense was unmatched by any player.”Niedermayer was the first player in hockey history to win a Stanley Cup Travis Konecny Jersey , Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. He is also the only player to have won a combination of four Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals.Niedermayer is the third player to have his number retired by Anaheim. He joins the No. 8 of Teemu Selanne and Kariya’s No. 9.“It was enjoyable. It was good to sit back and reflect,” Niedermayer said.
