Wennberg was back after missing Games 2 Zach Bogosian Jersey Womens , 3 and 4 after a hit to the head from Washington’s Tom Wilson. Tortorella says Wennberg replaces Sonny Milano in the lineup.Wennberg, the Blue Jackets’ second-line center, had developed chemistry with Boone Jenner and Thomas Vanek before being injured. His return restores Columbus’ depth down the middle and helps on the power play.Capitals coach Barry Trotz said if Wennberg was back in it would help the Blue Jackets but expressed confidence in his four centers – Evgeny Kuznetsov, Nicklas Backstrom, Lars Eller and Jay Beagle – to match up with any opposing line.The teams are tied at 2-all in the series. Game 6 is Monday night in Columbus.— MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal Canadiens captain Shea Weber says he really missed that winning feeling.In his second game back from injury John Moore Jersey Womens , Weber and Artturi Lehkonen each scored twice and the Canadiens snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.The 33-year-old defenseman missed 73 games following surgeries on his right knee and left foot. He had an assist in a losing effort in his first game back on Thursday.“The biggest thing is winning,” said Weber, who gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead after one period. “If you help out by scoring goals, or stopping goals, whichever way it is Chris Wagner Jersey Womens , it’s coming in here after getting two points that I definitely miss the most.”Tomas Tatar also scored for the Canadiens, who won for the first time at home since Nov. 10. Carey Price stopped 20 shots.Jimmy Vesey and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers, losers in four of their last five games. Backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev made 37 saves on 42 shots. Mika Zibanejad had two assists.The Canadiens outshot New York 42-22 and beat the Rangers for the fourth straight game at the Bell Centre.Montreal went up 2-0 in the first period on Weber’s first two goals of the season. He was playing just his second game since returning from an injury.Weber scored 3:53 into the game, sending a one-timer from the blue line past Georgiev. It was Weber’s first goal since Dec. 5, 2017.“The guys on the bench were all so happy when he scored his first goal Alex Galchenyuk Jersey Womens ,” said Canadiens head coach Claude Julien. “He’s earned that respect from his teammates, from us, just by the way he handles himself. Everyone is extremely happy for him tonight. Second game, scores a couple of goals, sets the tone and has a real solid outing.”He netted his second of the game on a great play by Tatar. Lying on the ice with his back to the play after being tripped at the blue line Carter Rowney Jersey Womens , Tatar spotted a streaking Weber and fed him with a backhand pass for the partial break. Weber went high to the glove side and scored with eight seconds remaining in the first period.“That was a crusher,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “To give that goal up in the fashion that we did really was a tough pill to swallow and tough to overcome. You know we’re not in a great mindset right now, and to come in the second period down 2-0 playing the way we did the last seven or eight minutes and give up a goal of that fashion really set us back.”Lehkonen doubled Montreal’s lead — and his goal tally for the season — with two quick scores early in the second.The Canadiens went up 3-0 when Lehkonen beat Georgiev with a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 at 2:04. The Rangers goalie smashed his stick against the post in anger after the goal.Lehkonen made it 4-0 at 5:29, a quick release on Georgiev’s blocker side after a giveaway by Neal Pionk behind his own net.With the teams playing 4-on-4, the Rangers got one back on a wrist shot by Vesey at 8:10 of the second.Strome Luke Schenn Jersey Womens , on the power play, made it 4-2 with 5:49 remaining in the middle frame.Tatar, with his 11th of the season, restored Montreal’s three-goal lead with a power-play goal at 10:28 of the third.NOTES: The Canadiens placed former first-round draft pick Nikita Scherbak on waivers earlier on Saturday. … Speedy forward Paul Byron was back in the lineup for Montreal after missing 14 games with a lower-body injury.UP NEXTMontreal: Hosts the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.New York: Hosts Winnipeg on Sunday.
