    WINNIPEG Matt Calvert Jersey Womens , Manitoba (AP) —  about falling short of his first career hat trick.The third-year forward scored twice as the Winnipeg Jets beat Chicago 6-3 on Tuesday night to give the Blackhawks their eighth straight loss.Connor nearly had another goal late in the second period when Chicago goalie Cam Ward made an arcing glove grab. He had other opportunities, too.“Yeah, that was tough,” Connor said of missing out on the hat trick. “But played a good game, full team effort from top to bottom.”Mark Scheifele and Tyler Myers each had a goal and assist, Mathieu Perreault scored and Brandon Tanev added an empty-net goal for Winnipeg. Dustin Byfuglien had three assists.Laurent Brossoit played his eighth game (seventh start) for the Jets and made 32 saves.Dylan Strome, Dominik Kahun and Alex DeBrincat scored for Chicago. Patrick Kane added a pair of assists and Ward stopped 28 shots,“He was amazing for us,” Kane said of Ward. “He had so many big saves, kept us in the hockey game, gave us a chance to win even when you’re down 4-0. So, yeah, we feel like we left him out to dry obviously, which isn’t fair.”The Blackhawks also lost eight straight earlier this season, although two were in overtime. The current slump is all in regulation time.“If I had it (a reason) I would have fixed it already,” said Chicago head coach Jeremy Colliton Cale Makar Jersey Womens , who replaced the fired Joel Quenneville on Nov. 6.“Compete harder early on. I thought we were late to almost every situation in the first period and they have a really good team. They pressure hard and they make a lot of plays. They play like men out there and we just couldn’t match it in the beginning and we paid a price for it.”Winnipeg led 3-0 after the first period, but Chicago came back to make it 4-3 early in the third.Chicago didn’t get its first shot on goal until 17:36 into the game, drawing sarcastic cheers from some fans.“Pretty embarrassing start,” Kane said, adding the slow starts are a bad trend.It was an unusual start for Brossoit, too.“I can’t say that I’ve ever been through that much time without a shot,” he said. “It was a bit of a challenge, but they came with a bit of a surge and gave me four or five shots all in a row, so I got into the game off that surge.”Scheifele opened the scoring with a power-play goal when he redirected Byfuglien’s point shot at 7:49 for his 17th goal. Myers scored 72 seconds later.Connor’s 12th of the season came after he took the puck most of the way down the ice, lost control of it in the slot, got his stick on it and put a backhand shot past Ward’s glove at 13:38.Connor scored his second goal of the game off a rebound on the power play at 1:44 of the second, but Strome got the visitors on the board 20 seconds later.Duncan Keith had an assist. He and defenseman Brent Seabrook marked their 1,000th regular-season game together, the most by current NHL teammates and seventh all-time.Kahun squeezed Winnipeg’s lead to 4-2 after he banged in a rebound at 7:09. DeBrincat sent a sharp-angled shot between the post and Brossoit to make it 4-3 at 6:08 of the third, but Perreault scored on the power play to regain the two-goal lead at 11:36.NOTES: Kane extended his points streak to four games with two goals and four assists. … Winnipeg was 3 for 5 on the power play and Chicago 0 for 2.UP NEXTBlackhawks. Host Pittsburgh on Wednesday night to start a four-game homestand.Jets: End a four-game homestand against Edmonton on Thursday night. EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Rickard Rakell took over the game with one big second period for the Anaheim Ducks.Rakell scored all three of his goals in the middle period for a natural hat trick Riley Nash Jersey Womens , powering the Ducks past the Edmonton Oilers 5-1 on Saturday night.“I don’t think I’ve ever done that before,” Rakell said. “It’s nice to do that for the first time.”Corey Perry and Devin Shore also scored for the Ducks, who have won two of their last three — and bounced back from a 6-1 loss to Calgary on Friday night.“It felt great for our team,” Rakell said. “We were not happy with how we got pretty much dominated by Calgary last night. So when we have a good first period like that, we try to keep it going in the second and when you get a couple of goals, the whole team feels good and it’s much easier to play.”Edmonton ended John Gibson’s shutout bid with 6:51 left in the game on Sam Gagner’s goal. Gibson finished with 30 saves while sending the Oilers to their second loss in a row.“There was a long line of guys who didn’t play well,” Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock said.Shortly after Jakob Silfverberg rang a shot off the post, Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen got a piece of Perry’s shot with his glove, only to see it trickle behind him into the net to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead with 4:43 remaining in the opening period.The Ducks took a two-goal lead 1:21 into the second period when Silfverberg kept the puck in at the line and sent it to Rakell, who scored on a one-timer.Rakell made it 3-0 at the 8:48 mark when he backhanded in a rebound for his second goal of the night and his sixth in the past five games.Rakell completed the hat trick with 4:47 left to play in the second. Anthony Stolarz replaced Koskinen in net after that goal.Anaheim added to its lead 1:29 into the third when Shore scored on a blast off of a faceoff.“We’re depleted, that’s an understatement,” Perry said about the Ducks’ lengthy list of injuries. “Guys are getting a chance to play bigger roles, bigger minutes, learn what the game is in this league and how to play every single night and they’re getting a great experience for it.”Ducks defenseman Jake Dotchin was ejected early in the game once it was discovered he had officially been listed as a scratch.Oilers forward Milan Lucic, who picked up his 500th NHL point, said Edmonton is basically playing for pride.“Unfortunately Martin Hanzal Jersey Womens , it is going to be a long summer here,” he said. “We have to go out there and play the right way, play for each other and have fun doing it. It’s going to be a long final four games if we play sloppy and careless.”NOTES: It was the fourth and final meeting between the teams, with Edmonton winning the season series 2-1-1. Seven of the teams’ past eight games had been decided by one goal, including five which went to overtime. … The Ducks have been hampered by injuries of late, missing the likes of Ondrej Kase (shoulder), Chad Johnson (head), Brendan Guhle (upper body), Ryan Kesler (hip), Nick Ritchie (upper body), Ryan Getzlaf (upper body), Josh Manson (upper body) and Troy Terry (lower body).UP NEXTDucks: host Calgary on Wednesday night.Oilers: at Las Vegas on Monday night.
