Jackson is an acco

CALGARY http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.c ... -ii-jersey , Alberta — The Columbus Blue Jackets kicked off their final extended road trip of the regular season with a come-from-behind 7-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Now the Blue Jackets (43-29-5) want to keep that momentum going when they face the struggling Calgary Flames (35-32-10) on Thursday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

“We wanted to start it off with a win, obviously,” Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner said in regard to the team’s road swing through western Canada. “We’ve got two more games left on the trip. They’re all big points. We’re just looking forward to Calgary now, getting the job done there. It’s a big win for us (against Edmonton), but we’ve just got to gear up for the next one.”

Jenner and linemates Thomas Vanek and Alexander Wennberg combined for nine points against the Oilers, who jumped out to an early 3-0 lead before the Jackets rallied for their 11th win in their past 12 games.

“We can feel it as a line,” said Jenner, who scored once and set up two others, Vanek finished with a hat trick and an assist, and Wennberg had two assists. “We’re always talking. We’re getting more and more comfortable with each other and each other’s tendencies and where to be for each other. It’s a lot better when you’re like that. You can get that chemistry going.”

Cam Atkinson, Artemi Panarin and Markus Nutivaara also scored for the Jackets, who bounced back from a 2-1 loss at home to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

“It’s amazing how many guys were not rolling the first half of the season and how we, as a team, stuck with it and found ways to get points to get to where we are now patrick mahomes authentic jersey ,” said Atkinson, who has put up seven goals and four assists in his past nine games. “In order for us to go on this deep run, you need your best players going (and) you need your veteran guys going, and all the older guys have been stepping up.”

While the Blue Jackets have firmly entrenched themselves into a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with a six-point bulge in the wild-card race, the Flames have completely fallen out of the postseason picture in the Western Conference.

By virtue of a 3-0 road loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Flames were mathematically eliminated on Monday.

“If you look at the way our team’s played, we’re battling,” said Flames coach Glen Gulutzan, whose team has dropped six straight decisions and seven of their past eight. “Guys are fighting still until the end. We’re never laying down and getting outshot and outplayed and dominated, but we’re having trouble scoring, there’s no question.”

Already missing forwards Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk because of injuries, the Flames are also playing without leading scorer Johnny Gaudreau, who returned home to New Jersey earlier this week after his father, Guy Gaudreau patrick mahomes stitched jersey , suffered a cardiac event on Sunday.

“It’s really family first there right now. He needs to be there,” said Gulutzan, who hasn’t been displeased with the effort level of his players in the absence of Gaudreau, Monahan and Tkachuk. “When you take your top three scorers out of the lineup, it stings. As far as work ethic … that’s one thing that we can always bring to the table and that’s what our guys are doing right now is working their tails off and battling.”

With four of Calgary’s five remaining games on home ice, defenseman Mark Giordano said he and his teammates want to “come out and play with emotion and show the character we have in this room.”

The Calgary captain added, “We know we haven’t played as well as we’ve wanted too on home ice, so in these last few games at home try and bring a lot of energy and emotion and give our crowd a few great home games.”

As the only general manager holding three first-round picks in Thursday night’s NBA draft, including No. 3 overall, Atlanta’s Travis Schlenk has been a popular target for trade talk.

Overall, the Hawks have four picks in the top 34. That’s more than enough depth to attract interest, but the rebuilding Hawks are even more attractive trade targets because they also have about $20 million in salary cap space. That creates more attractive options for a team needing to unload a contract in a trade.

Schlenk says he is answering every call and considering all options – including the possibility of trading up or down from the No. 3 spot.

It’s an exciting time for Schlenk, who never held such a high draft pick in his previous job as assistant GM with the Golden State Warriors.

”This is the highest pick that I’ve been a part of,” Schlenk said last week. ”At Golden State Raekwon McMillan Jersey , the highest pick we had was six. So it’s exciting. Having the four picks, along with the third pick, we get a lot of phone calls, which is exciting as well, and we’re going to go through all the options that are presented to us and make the best decision, hopefully.”

He says he’s comfortable with the idea of opening the 2018-19 season with four rookies.

Schlenk is planning the Hawks’ future with a new coach. Former Philadelphia assistant Lloyd Pierce was hired on May 11 to replace Mike Budenholzer, now the Bucks coach.

Schlenk might use his first pick to select a forward-center to pair with 2017-18 rookie John Collins. Among players who could be available are Duke’s Marvin Bagley III , Michigan State’s Jaren Jackson and Mo Bamba of Texas.

Guards Luka Doncic of Slovenia, Trae Young of Oklahoma and forward Michael Porter of Missouri could be alternatives for Schlenk.

Pierce stressed defense in his first news conference in Atlanta. Schlenk said it’s important to land players with balanced offensive and defensive skills.

”Obviously when you look at the best teams in the league, the majority of the time they’re good defensive teams,” Schlenk said. ”But at the end of the day, if you’re not scoring 100 points you’re probably not winning, so we’re going to look for guys that are two-way players, who can play defensively Jerry Hughes Jersey , but also we’ve got to be able to score the ball on the other end.”

Bagley qualifies as that two-way talent, but he could be drafted at the No. 2 spot by Sacramento.

”I put a lot of work into this and I think I’m the best player in the draft,” Bagley said after his draft workout in Atlanta last week. ”I mean that in the most humble way possible, not to be cocky.”

Phoenix is projected to select Arizona center Deandre Ayton with the top pick.

Jackson is an accomplished shot blocker with less polish on the offensive end. He is regarded by many to have the potential shooting skills to develop into a well-rounded NBA big man.

With point guard Dennis Schroder’s future in Atlanta uncertain, the Hawks can look for talent at any position. Their wealth of picks could make it easier to take a chance on Doncic, who has the skills to play multiple positions even though his ability to create space in the NBA has been questioned by some critics.

”I’ve maintained all along, and I honestly believe this, we’re going to take the best player,” Schlenk said. ”We’re in a situation where we’re looking to add the most talent we can, and we’re going to get a good player at the third pick.”

The No. 3 spot is the Hawks’ highest since 2007, when they selected Al Horford at No. 3.

Atlanta also has the No. 19 and No. 30 picks in the first round and No. 34 early in the second round. Those selections give Schlenk a wealth of options, including a deal for a higher pick next year.

Schlenk said he has considered if the possibility to ”trade back to collect more assets would be advantageous.”
