Vegas Golden Knights merchandise is flying off the shelves Matt Ioannidis Jersey Elite , with goalie Marc-Andre Fleury’s jersey leading the way.Specific numbers weren’t immediately available Tuesday, but the NHL says the team’s overall North American sales have been very strong.”The Vegas Golden Knights are in the top five in merch sales all season,” Nirva Milord, the NHL’s senior director of corporate communications, wrote in an email to The Canadian Press. ”Marc-Andre Fleury is tops among players in playoffs merch sales.”Last month, the NHL reported that Fleury was fourth in jersey sales behind Toronto’s Auston Matthews, Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby and Edmonton’s Connor McDavid.Fleury, a three-time Stanley Cup champion in Pittsburgh, was not protected by the Penguins in last year’s expansion draft. He has helped anchor the Golden Knights and gave them immediate star power.This random mix of journeymen, up-and-comers and castoffs will host the Jets in Game 3 of the Western Conference final Wednesday after teams split the first two games in Winnipeg.Cash registers have been ringing with sales of hats, hoodies, sweatshirts, T-shirts and jerseys adorned with the knight helmet symbol and the team’s steel grey, black, gold and red colors.Marvin Ryder, a marketing professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, points to a couple of reasons for strong sales: a lack of competition from other top sports leagues in Las Vegas; the readiness of hockey fans and youngsters to flock to new gear.But where the franchise really delivered, Ryder said, was with its powerful logo coupled with an attractive color scheme.”Whatever graphic identity team they hired, they knocked it right out of the park,” Ryder told The Canadian Press.It helps to have a winning team http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/matthew-ioannidis-jersey , too.”Ultimately it’s how the fans embrace it,” Ryder said. ”In this case, I’m going to say it’s more about lucky. You had all the pieces, but they got them right the very first day. That’s the unusual part of the story.”Normally it takes longer for the teams to find that combination of performance and the right-looking logo that people are proud to wear. They got it right from Day One.” WASHINGTON (AP) Jon Cooper’s Tampa Bay Lightning won Game 4 of the Eastern Conference final despite going the equivalent of more than a period without a shot on goal.They won despite falling behind about 4 1/2 minutes into the game.They won despite being called for three penalties – one right after the other – late in the first period, allowing Alex Ovechkin and the rest of the Washington Capitals’ prolific power play to get all that time to operate.And they did it, mainly, thanks to Andrei Vasilevskiy, who made 36 saves and kept things close until Alex Killorn scored the tiebreaker with about 8 minutes left, lifting Tampa Bay to a 4-2 victory over Washington on Thursday night, evening the series at two games apiece.”When you don’t have your `A’ game, you need your goalie to have his `A’ game,” Cooper said. ”And he sure did.”Now the Lightning will host Game 5 on Saturday night, with Game 6 back in Washington on Monday.The road team has won every game in the series so far.”It’s pretty bizarre,” said Steven Stamkos, who took a puck of the face during the morning skate, then went out and scored a power-play goal that gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead after the first period. ”We’ve got to find a way to win one at home.”The Capitals might be thinking the very same thing. After all, they fell to 3-5 in the nation’s capital this postseason, while they are 7-1 in away games.On Thursday, they even got booed – yes, a smattering of jeers rang out in the team’s first conference final in 20 years – late in the first period after failing to convert any of the trio of man-advantage chances.That stretch was part of a chunk of nearly 21 full minutes of game time – the last 10:41 of the first period, followed by the initial 10:11 of the second – during which Tampa Bay never putt a single official shot on net.”Our guys were gassed. That’s a lot of stress. Mental stress. The same guys are on the ice the whole time. Other guys aren’t playing,” Cooper said. ”You kind of lose your whole rhythm.”And so it was vital that Vasilevskiy played just like the Vezina Trophy finalist he is.He was spectacular at times Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , including stops against Chandler Stephenson on a breakaway and Nicklas Backstrom – who returned after missing four games with an injured right hand – from the doorstep in the second period. In the third, Vasilevskiy used his left glove to swat away a try from Brett Connolly.Following one flubbed chance, Ovechkin threw his head back and looked up, the very picture of disappointment.After allowing 10 goals in Games 1 and 2, Vasilevskiy has given up a total of four in Games 3 and 4.”He didn’t play great in the first two. He played well in the second two. It’s our job to make him look like the goalie from the first two games,” Washington forward Tom Wilson said. ”We’ll make it hard on him.”Capitals goalie Braden Holtby didn’t get a chance to make nearly as many saves, given the shot discrepancy: Washington ended up with 38 to Tampa Bay’s 20. And Holtby allowed goals on two of the first five shots he faced, to Brayden Point and to Stamkos. Anthony Cirelli added an empty-netter with a second left.The go-ahead goal came thanks to a defensive breakdown, when Killorn was left pretty much alone and scored 6 seconds after a Tampa Bay power play expired, putting in a pass from Ondrej Palat.”Tonight was so important,” Killorn said. ”Going down 3-1 in a series is tremendously different from 2-2.”After his score, Killorn said, ”We played our best hockey.”That’s true.Washington’s goals had come from Evgeny Kuznetsov – off an assist by Ovechkin – in the second period, and defenseman Dmitry Orlov in the early going. But late, the Capitals could not get the tying goal in, even after pulling Holtby with a little more than 2 minutes to go so they could play 6-on-5.”Of course,” Ovechkin said, ”it’s a missed opportunity.”NOTES: Stamkos has one power-play goal in each game of the series. … The Lightning have produced 11 power-play goals over their last nine games, with at least one in each. … Lars Eller was whistled for both of Washington’s penalties and has five in the past two games. ”That was way too many,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. … Kuznetsov’s 21 points equaled Ovechkin (2009) for the most by a Capitals player in one postseason.—
