ST. Malik Hooker Jersey . JOHNS, N.L. -- Devan Dubnyk stopped all four shots he faced in the shootout and made 25 saves in regulation as the Hamilton Bulldogs edged the St. Johns IceCaps 4-3 in American Hockey League action Wednesday. The goalie played with an aggressive style in the shootout, coming out to cut the angles down early, and set the tone by poke-checking the puck away from IceCaps forward Jerome Samson on the first attempt of the night. "Its the way I play," Dubnyk said. "Some guys are different. For me, I like to get out and I feel I can move side-to-side well enough that if I get out and really give them absolutely nothing to shoot at then Ill be patient and force them to try and go around me." Dubnyk said that although the Bulldogs are virtually eliminated from the playoff race, the team still looks forward to winning games at this point in the season. "We talked about continuing the fight," he said. "We did a good job pushing to the end and we scored a huge goal in the third period. We were really close last night but we had a few letdowns that cost us towards the end of the game so it was really important to come out and do that tonight." IceCaps defenseman Jordan Hill notched two assists on the night. "Its nice to help out offensively, but I know thats not my game," Hill said. "I just try to move the puck to the forwards and let them do the work." Hill said St. Johns expected this sort of push back from Hamilton after beating them Tuesday night. "Theyre a good team," he said. "Obviously its late in the season and were trying to get every point we can here, scratching and clawing towards the playoffs. We didnt get the job done tonight." The IceCaps guaranteed themselves a playoff spot after winning Tuesdays game. Andrighetto scored the shootout winner on a quick forehand-to-backhand move before slipping the puck in behind IceCaps netminder Tyler Beskorowany. Gabriel Dumont also scored in the shootout for the Bulldogs. John Albert, Kyle MacKinnon and Adam Lowry scored in regulation for the St. Johns IceCaps (43-22-7). Greg Pateryn, Mike Blunden and Drew Schiestel answered for the Bulldogs (32-34-7). The IceCaps scored first, 1:59 into the game, when Albert ripped a wrist shot from the left faceoff dot to score high glove side. The Bulldogs equalized on a Pateryn slapshot, through a sprawled-out Beskorowany on the powerplay at the 13:41 mark of the first period. MacKinnon gave the IceCaps a 2-1 lead when he surprised the Bulldogs and ripped a quick wristshot high glove with 4:25 left in the first. Lowry backhanded home a rebound on the doorstep for St. Johns at the 17:39 mark of the second period to make it a 3-1 game. Seventeen seconds later, Schiestl pulled the Bulldogs within one from the slot with a wrist shot high glove. Blunden tipped home a puck while going to the net at the 12:54 mark of the third period, to tie the game. Beskorowany made 37 saves, and saved two of four shots in the shootout. Malik Hooker Youth Jersey .

We grind it out, and we were lucky to get that one. ... We pushed a little harder today.Tyler Toffoli scored a short-handed goal, Jonathan Quick made 27 saves and Anze Kopitar scored the tying power-play goal midway through the third period for the Kings, who got a boost from the intensity in this local derby.We came out with a little physicality, Kopitar said. The guys were hitting people, so the physical presence was definitely there. We tightened it up defensively, and thats what we needed to do.Emerson Etem and Ryan Kesler scored for the Ducks, who beat Los Angeles 6-5 in a shootout on Wednesday.Andersen, who got chased early in the clubs first meeting Wednesday, made 34 saves in the Ducks club-record fifth straight overtime game.Anaheim has earned points in seven straight games, but its five-game regular-season winning streak against Los Angeles ended after Hampus Lindholm got a sketchy hooking penalty 23 seconds into overtime. The Ducks also didnt like the goalie interference penalty against captain Ryan Getzlaf leading to Kopitars goal. Reggie Wayne Youth Jersey. Its two good teams playing hard, and you wish it didnt have to go like that, Getzlaf said. Were battling through a lot of injuries.

Kesler had scored just one goal in the previous four weeks before getting three more in two games against the Kings.After Getzlafs penalty for running into Quick, Kopitar evened it with a big shot through traffic late in a sharp power play. The Kings hadnt scored on their previous 18 power-play chances over seven games since Nov. 2.They had more shots, but we had better scoring chances, Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. Five-on-five, I thought we outplayed them. I thought we were right there, every moment of the game.NOTES: Anaheim hadnt lost a day game since April 7, 2012, at Calgary. ... Devante Smith-Pelly sat out with an upper-body injury after missing the Ducks past two practices. Chris Wagner played 7:08 after he was recalled from Anaheims AHL affiliate in Norfolk. ...
