DALLAS (AP) Having no picks in the first three rounds made it look as though it would be a quiet Womens Jared McCann Jersey , boring and ineffective weekend for the Calgary Flames.Instead, they became one of the biggest winners at the NHL draft by acquiring 23-year-old forward Elias Lindholm and 21-year-old defenseman Noah Hanifin in a five-player trade with Carolina on Saturday. It cost the Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox, but they got younger and may have restored their lineup to its rightful order.Lindholm is a natural center, but could be the perfect fit on Calgary’s first line alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Moving Hamilton will allow T.J. Brodie to slide back on to the first defensive pairing with Mark Giordano, while Hanifin could benefit from playing with those veterans on the blue line.”I think Noah is just scratching the surface,” general manager Brad Treliving said. ”We’ve got some guys on the blue line who can produce. We also want guys who want to be in Calgary. Both players talking today, in Elias and Noah Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey , they’re excited to get out there.”Beyond the Flames, here are some more winners and losers from the NHL draft:WINNER: PHILIPP GRUBAUERAfter lifting the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals, Grubauer was traded to the Colorado Avalanche where he’ll initially split time with Semyon Varlamov but should take over as the starter after next season. Grubauer signed a $10 million, three-year contract in the biggest payday of his career.LOSER: NEW YORK ISLANDERSThey got strong value in first-round picks Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson, but didn’t agree to terms on a new deal with John Tavares before he could begin meeting with other teams Sunday. Tavares will host five teams in the coming days and could become a free agent July 1, which would be devastating for the Islanders.”I have no disappointment, no discouragement,” GM Lou Lamoriello said. ”He’s earned every right to make whatever choice he has. The most important thing is that we hope in the end that he’s an Islander.”WINNER: BUFFALO SABRESAfter years of wandering and floundering http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-keith-yandle-jersey , the Sabres have a franchise defenseman in No. 1 pick Rasmus Dahlin. This was set in stone in April when Buffalo won the lottery, but the organization will get an up-close look at the Swedish playmaker at prospect camp and has every reason to be excited about the future.”He’s a young player, he’s 18 years old, there’s high expectations down the road,” GM Jason Botterill said. ”But it’s going to be imperative to us to protect him, put him in and put him in the right situations so he can have success.”LOSER: ENTERTAINMENTThe only trades involving NHL players were the deal by Carolina and Calgary and the Capitals trading Grubauer and defenseman Brooks Orpik to Colorado. None of the top 10 picks changed hands, and most of the two days went off without drama.WINNER: ILYA KOVALCHUKThe Kontinental Hockey League’s leading scorer and Olympic MVP had plenty of suitors and wound up agreeing to a three-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings worth $6.25 million a season. The 35-year-old is returning to the NHL on the same deal Patrick Marleau got from the Toronto Maple Leafs a year ago, which is a coup for Kovalchuk.LOSER: MONTREAL CANADIENSRumors persisted about Montreal trading captain Max Pacioretty or even acquiring center Ryan O’Reilly from Buffalo. Neither move happened Womens Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , leaving Marc Bergevin with a lengthy to-do list after already trading Alex Galchenyuk to Arizona for Max Domi.— MONTREAL (AP) — A bad penalty by Jonathan Drouin in the dying minutes crushed Montreal’s comeback hopes.With Drouin in the box for high-sticking, Boston’s John Moore scored a power-play goal to give the Bruins a 3-2 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night in a hard-hitting and penalty-filled affair.“You can’t take a penalty at that time of the game,” coach Claude Julien said. “If he (Drouin) said that it’s on him, well he’s right. You have to be disciplined. We can’t do those things if we want to win hockey games. “Montreal has lost four games in a row for the first time this season.With less than six minutes remaining in a 2-2 contest, Drouin cross-checked David Backes in the face, cutting the Bruins winger below the bottom lip. The incident happened away from the run of play just minutes after the Canadiens came back from two goals down to equalize.“He was coming at me,” Drouin said about Backes. “I didn’t mean to hit him in the face.”Moore scored his first goal of the season on the four-minute power play, at 17:03 of the third Roberto Luongo Jersey , and the Bruins held on for their third win in four games.“A four-minute power play with five minutes left in a tie game is certainly a good thing to have,” said Backes, who also scored and added an assist. “We made good on it. Kudos to the guys in here for staying with it. I don’t mind bleeding. Bleeding’s better than concussions to me. If that’s what it takes to win, I’ll take blood.”Jake DeBrusk also scored, Tuukka Rask made 32 saves, and David Krejci had two assists.Drouin and Tomas Tatar scored in the third period for Montreal, and Carey Price stopped 32 shots. The Canadiens have lost four straight.Boston finished 1 for 6 with the man advantage, while Montreal was 1 for 5. Both teams combined for 30 penalty minutes.It was the second game of a back-to-back series for both teams. Boston beat Pittsburgh 2-1 in overtime on Friday http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-vincent-trocheck-jersey , while Montreal lost 3-2 in overtime in Buffalo.The Bruins took a 1-0 lead at 13:01 of the first period when Backes swiped the puck from Jesperi Kotkaniemi at the Montreal blue line before beating Price glove side for his first goal of the season.With the teams playing 4-on-4, DeBrusk doubled Boston’s lead at 14:42 when he got behind defenseman Brett Kulak and tapped in a beautiful pass from Torey Krug.Drouin got one back for the home team at 6:46 for his ninth of the season. Drouin beat Krug with speed in the Boston zone before squeezing a shot between Rask’s pads.Tatar got the equalizer for Montreal on the power play at 10:09 of the third. With David Pastrnak in the box for slashing, Tatar took a pass from Andrew Shaw from behind the net and roofed a one-timer past Rask.NOTES: The Bruins were without the injured Zdeno Chara (knee) and Patrice Bergeron (rib). … It was the second of four meetings between the Canadiens and Bruins this season.UP NEXTBruins: At Toronto on Monday night.Canadiens: Host Carolina on Tuesday night.
