a matchup Saturday at No. 19 Texas.

WASHINGTON -- New Yorks Cam Talbot and Washingtons Philipp Grubauer, two backup goalies making it hard for their coaches to keep them on the bench, combined for 68 saves on Friday night. Darrell Green Jersey . Talbot came up one short. Nicklas Backstrom had a goal and an assist, and Eric Fehr scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:09 left to lift the Capitals over the Rangers 3-2. Moments after New York defenceman Dan Girardis drive hit the post, Fehr took a pass from Backstrom during 4-on-4 play, skated in, and beat Talbot from the right circle for his sixth goal. "It was just a quick release that beat me," Talbot said. "Its (a save) Ive got to make, especially in a situation like that where its a tie game with five minutes to go and were pressing for the win." Mike Green added a goal, and Grubauer had 37 saves for Washington, which had dropped two straight before taking the finale of a three-game homestand. "Its huge," Grubauer said. "Every win is, because I havent played many games. Every win is a great feeling for me." Grubauer improved to 5-1-1 in eight games since being called up to Washington. "Right now, its only been eight games, and goalies -- like everybody -- have their waves," Capitals coach Adam Oates said. "Right now it looks like hes playing with confidence, and hes giving the players confidence." Benoit Pouliot and Carl Hagelin scored for New York, which had won two straight. It was the Rangers first game after a nine-game homestand. "Its disappointing, obviously. I thought we played a pretty strong game," Girardi said. "That last (goal) is tough. I hit the post then they come right back down and score." Talbot, making his third straight start in place of No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 31 shots in the opener of a five-game road trip. He came in with an 8-2 record and a 1.60 goals against average in 12 games, and won the final two games of the homestand. Backstrom continued his impressive December and has 17 points in his last eight games. He began the night fourth in the NHL in points and third in assists, "Hes handling the puck with confidence, and hes making great plays," Fehr said. "Its what we expect of him, but its pretty unbelievable to watch." Hagelin tied the game with a short-handed goal 17 seconds into the third period. He took a feed from Ryan McDonagh, skated in alone on Grubauer, and scored with a backhanded shot. The Rangers outshot Washington 14-7 in the opening period and had two power plays to one for the Capitals, but trailed 1-0. With Rick Nash off for tripping, Martin Erat sent a pass to Green at the point for a one-timed shot that got past Talbot on the glove side at 6:55 for his third goal. New York lost defenceman Anton Stralman to an undisclosed injury in the period and played the remainder of the game with five defencemen. "You go from six to five defencemen and youre top three have to log a tremendous amount of minutes," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said, "Might make it a little bit more challenging in terms of defending and attacking, but thats not an excuse. Those are things that happen." The Rangers tied it on a power play when Pouliot deflected Brad Richards shot from the point past Grubauer at 1:37 of the second period. It was Pouliots sixth goal of the season and third in four games. The Capitals appeared to retake the lead midway through the second, but a replay review showed that Fehrs shot bounced off the post, went behind Talbot, but didnt cross the goal line. After a flurry of saves by Grubauer late in the period, the Capitals went ahead 2-1 when Steve Olesky pushed a loose puck ahead to Backstrom. Talbot could only get a piece of the shot from the right circle that produced Backstroms 10th goal with 1:05 left in the period. "Hes playing great, hes obviously in a groove," Oates said. "We count on him so much for so many touches in a game." Lundqvist, a three-time All-Star, signed a seven-year, $59.5 million contract extension on Dec. 4 to become the highest paid NHL goalie. Since then, he is 2-4-2 with a 3.41 goals-against average in eight games. Lundqvist lost his most recent appearance 5-3 to the New York Islanders last Friday, giving up four goals on 19 shots. NOTES: Alex Ovechkin failed to score a goal for the ninth straight game against the Rangers, including the playoffs. ... Capitals C Brooks Laich (groin), who returned Monday after missing 11 games, was out of the lineup. ... RW Erat has 14 assists in 35 games, but hasnt scored a goal. Perry Riley Jersey .ca. Hi Kerry, Appreciate all your insight into what goes on in games.  Im just looking for an explanation - in Wednesdays Flyers-Capitals game, why didnt Wayne Simmonds receive a third-man in during the line brawl last night? He clearly grabbed Erskine, who was engaged with Lecavalier, allowing Vinnie a free cheap-shot right to the mush!Thanks,Chris --- Hey Kerry, Seeing the Flyers-Caps line brawl last night, whats the most interesting story from your officiating days when it came to breaking them up? Paul McLane Chris: You are correct in your assessment that Wayne Simmonds deserved a game misconduct when he grabbed John Erskine around the neck allowing Vincent Lecavalier a free shot as the players fell to the ice.Josh Leribeus Jersey .J. -- Kevin Gilbride retired Thursday as offensive co-ordinator for the New York Giants.MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- It was tough to tell what Remi Dibo enjoyed more: being the centerpiece of West Virginias 3-point show against No. 11 Iowa State, or clamping down on Big 12 scoring leader Melvin Ejim. Dibo scored a career-high 20 points to lead the Mountaineers to a 102-77 victory Monday night, the Cyclones most lopsided loss of the season. Dibo went 6 of 8 from beyond the arc as West Virginia tied a season high with 13 3-pointers. A native of France who finished his high school career in southern West Virginia and played last season at Wyomings Casper College, the 6-foot-7 Dibo made his fourth straight start and fifth overall. "I think my teammates did a great job of finding me," Dibo said. "I think its been a while. Theyve been doing a good job finding me and I was not responding. But I did today." Juwan Staten added 19 points and Eron Harris and Terry Henderson each had 16 points for the Mountaineers (15-10, 7-5 Big 12). Iowa State (18-5, 6-5) had five players in double figures, led by Georges Niangs 17 points. But Ejim, coming off a Big 12-record 48 points and a career-high 18 rebounds against TCU, was guarded by Dibo and held to six points -- 12 below his average -- on 1-of-9 shooting. "We just knew we couldnt let him score 40 points on us," Dibo said. "We had to make an effort on him." The Cyclones fell behind by double digits midway through the first half and trailed by as many as 32 points late in the game. It was the most lopsided loss for Iowa State since a 23-point setback at Texas in January 2011. "It was pretty much, start to finish, just a poor effort on our end," Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. West Virginia shot 54 per cent (35 of 65) from the field, hit a season-high for points and improved to 2-1 amid a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents heading into a matchup Saturday at No. 19 Texas. Iowa States outside scoring was virtually nonexistent until it was too late. The Cyclones were held to 37 per cent shooting (26 of 71) in losing their fourth road conference game. Morgan Moses Jersey. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins called it "by far the best" defensive effort from his team this season. Dustin Hogue added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Cyclones while Deandre Kane had 14 points, Matt Thomas 13 and Monte Morris 10. Kane, a Pittsburgh native, had more than 50 relatives and friends in attendance. He went 1-2 against the Mountaineers while he played at instate rival Marshall and was booed and taunted whenever he touched the ball. "Tonight we just didnt have it," Hoiberg said. "I dont know what it was. This group has been very focused and given everything all year." West Virginias lack of bench scoring had stood out in a double-digit loss to No. 7 Kansas on Saturday. On Monday, the Mountaineers reserves outscored Iowa States 27-15. "We had pretty much the same shots against Kansas, but we didnt make them," Huggins said. "Today, we made them." Trailing 52-33 at halftime, Iowa State put together its best stretch and closed the gap to 58-44 5 minutes into the second half before West Virginia again pulled away. The Cyclones went 4 minutes between field goals after that, and West Virginia got a big boost from its bench to keep the pressure on. Freshman Nathan Adrian made two baskets and two free throws, and Kevin Noreen doubled his season scoring average with a layup and two free throws. Dibos 3-pointer with 6:53 left gave the Mountaineers their largest lead, 86-54. "We just stuck to the game plan," Dibo said. "We couldnt let them make a run to come back. We knew from the past every time we had a lead, we had let teams come back, and we knew we couldnt let that happen." The only drama for West Virginia came when Harris was ejected for a flagrant foul with 4:25 left. After the game, West Virginias players went into the student section to celebrate. Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NHL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
