PITTSBURGH (AP) — There isn’t a lot of finesse in Patric Hornqvist’s game. The Pittsburgh Penguins forward understands his job is to get to the places on the ice that not everyone wants to go Womens Ryan Getzlaf Jersey , set up camp there and make something happen.His team in serious need of a kick-start after squandering a three-goal lead against white-hot Colorado, Hornqvist provided one.Well, three actually.Hornqvist recorded the fastest hat trick in franchise history on Tuesday night, beating Semyon Varlamov three times in a span of 2:47 in the third period as the Penguins pulled away for a 6-3 victory.“You know what, the two last ones, they were lucky ones,’ Hornqvist said after boosting his season goal total to 12. “You have one of those days sometimes, the puck is just coming right on your stick, you don’t think you’ll shoot and if you don’t know where to go I don’t think the goalie does either.”The Avalanche roared back from a 3-0 deficit by dominating the second period behind goals from Tyson Barrie http://www.officialducks.com/authentic-adidas-ryan-kesler-jersey , Carl Soderberg and Matt Nieto. While Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan told his team to keep its swagger, Hornqvist understood the Penguins were in a delicate spot.The longtime Eastern Conference power is off to a sluggish start, one marred by sloppy defense and an inability to put away opponents or play well at home. Pittsburgh began the night sixth in the Metropolitan Division and just 5-6-2 at PPG Paints Arena.The Penguins spend much of the second period chasing the younger, faster Avalanche before Hornqvist went to work.“We couldn’t really stop the bleeding (in the second) but you know what? We have a good group of guys in here and I think this is the turning point of our season,” Hornqvist said. “It’s a great third period and (if we) just keep building every single day from this day on and we’ll be fine.”Hornqvist’s record-setting run began in typical Hornqvist fashion. The 31-year-old Swede parked himself in front of Varlamov, corralled a rebound off a Kris Letang shot, jabbed at the puck once before spinning around and whipping it by the goaltender 6:11 in the third to put Pittsburgh back in front.He needed just 1:21 to double the Penguins’ advantage and completed the hat trick on his next shift when he fired a wrist shot from the slot that appeared to hit off Colorado’s Alexander Kerfoot and sneak past Varlamov.“He plays the game so hard,” Sullivan said. “He takes so many cross checks and he goes to the dirty areas and he competes. He just wants to win. He’s such a competitive guy and tonight he had a great night for us.”Jake Guentzel, Evgeni Malkin and Derick Brassard also scored for the Penguins Ryan Miller Jersey , who halted Colorado’s 11-game point streak. Kris Letang added two assists for Pittsburgh. Casey DeSmith finished with 42 saves.Varlamov made 26 stops, but struggled early and late as Colorado’s six-game road winning streak came to an abrupt halt.“To be honest, erase seven and a half minutes out of that game and I liked what I saw on both sides of the puck,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said.Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and Colorado star Nathan MacKinnon, good friends and frequent training partners in the offseason, put together a thrilling duel in Colorado last week, with MacKinnon’s four points able to help the Avalanche overcome a natural hat trick by Crosby in a 6-3 Avalanche victory.The two stars went scoreless in the rematch, taking a backseat to Hornqvist.The Penguins needed just 7:27 to build a three-goal lead. Guentzel redirected a feed from Letang with his left skate just 2:46 in. Malkin followed just over four minutes later when he jammed home a shot from the point by Tanner Pearson for his first five-on-five goal since Oct. 30. Brassard beat Varlamov 35 seconds later the Penguins appeared to be firmly in control.It all vanished over a 5:01 span in the second.Barrie’s power-play shot from the point 8:16 into the period gave Colorado a spark. Ian Cole, playing in Pittsburgh for the first time since helping the Penguins win consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017 Womens Alex Goligoski Jersey , fired a knuckler toward the net that Soderberg managed to get a stick on and deflect past DeSmith. Nieto found a gap with the Penguins on the power play to slip the puck by DeSmith to tie the game, the seventh short-handed goal allowed by Pittsburgh this season.Hornqvist’s historic stretch, however, helped the Penguins avoid a collapse while cooling off the Avalanche, at least for a night.“I think it’s good for the fans, for sure, not so good for the coaches,” Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen said. “I think they don’t like it as much. But we have to move forward.”NOTES: Pittsburgh D Marcus Pettersson, acquired in a trade with Anaheim on Monday Christian Dvorak Jersey , played 13:00. … Both teams went 1 for 3 on the power play. … Pittsburgh is 8-1-1 against the Western Conference.UP NEXTColorado: Begins a two-game swing through Florida on Friday when they play the Panthers.Pittsburgh: Welcome the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Guys never gave up.”The Lightning fell behind 3-1 after the opening period as the Flyers scored twice in a span of 3:37 in the first on goals from Voracek and defenseman Robert Hagg.Tampa Bay tied it on goals from Hedman and Dan Girardi in the second period, but Philadelphia regained the two-goal advantage on a late second-period goal from Jori Lehtera and early third-period goal from Provorov.”We know we didn’t play well a couple of nights ago http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic-adidas-clayton-keller-jersey ,” Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. ”It’s not just about losses it’s about the overall performance. That wasn’t us the other night and we knew we had to raise our level from where it was the other night. I thought our guys did that.”But the Lightning raised their level as well with three consecutive third-period goals, starting with J.T. Miller’s goal at 4:23 for his first since being acquired from the New York Rangers on Monday. Stamkos converted a 2-on-1 chance with Kucherov to tie the game at 7:38 and Hedman gave the Lightning a 6-5 lead at 10:03.”The resiliency was really there tonight and obviously really happy with the way we came back,” Hedman said.Giroux tied the game with 2:53 left in regulation.”It was a pretty fun game to play,” he said. ”They have a lot of talent, they have a lot of players that can make a difference.
