GLENDALE Adidas Jack Roslovic Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Darcy Kuemper might not have imagined that by the end of Thursday night, he’d have played in as many games as the goalie he backs up, the injured Antti Raanta.Kuemper had a career-high 44 saves in his sixth straight game in net, and the Arizona Coyotes held off the Western Conference-leading Nashville Predators 2-1.Kuemper kept a shutout going until Nick Bonino scored with 7:51 to play.“Sometimes it’s nice seeing a lot (of shots). It’s easier to just get in a rhythm,” Kuemper said. “I felt good and the guys were doing a great job in front of me.”The Coyotes (9-8-1) got goals from Michael Grabner and Jason Demers in their second win in six games. Arizona played the first of five straight home games after going 4-1 in its previous five-game homestand.Demers left with an apparent leg injury with 37.1 seconds to play after crashing into his own net. There was no update on his status after the game.Nashville (13-5-1) finished a five-game road trip — which included three games against Pacific Division teams — with five points, but lost its third straight. Pekka Rinne stopped 21 shots.“Their goalie played really well and they’re a good team,” Nashville’s Roman Josi said. “They’re fast. Every time we turned it over they took it back really quick. We played really hard but it just didn’t go our way.”The Predators’ Kyle Turris hit a post at the 12:22 mark of the third period. Nashville took out Rinne for an extra attacker inside of two minutes to play.“That team is built to win a Stanley Cup and we beat them 2-1,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “It was a little ugly but the PK (penalty kill) and ‘Kemps’ (Kuemper) won us the game.”The Coyotes scored their NHL-best 10th short-handed goal at 7:16 of the first period. Grabner had open ice on a power-play clearance and scored from just in front of the blue line to give Arizona a 1-0 lead.Four of Grabner’s five goals this season have been short-handed, and he leads the league in that category. Grabner has 19 short-handed goals since 2010, second only to the 23 for Brad Marchand of Boston.“Sometimes what it takes is a bounce to settle you down a little bit,” Grabner said. “It was nice to come back on after one (period) with the lead.”Demers put a wrist shot past Rinne on the goaltender’s stick side for a 2-0 Coyotes lead at 4:09 of the second period. It was the defenseman’s first goal of the season.The Predators were 0 for 5 on the man advantage for their third consecutive game without a power-play goal. That helped the Coyotes maintain their standing as the NHL’s top penalty-kill unit with only five power-play goals allowed.“The guys were working so hard on it Adidas Laurent Brossoit Jersey ,” Kuemper said. “Giving a lot of pressure and not giving them time to set up and make the plays they want.”The fifth power play for Nashville came as a result of Josh Archibald’s illegal check to the head of the Predators’ Josh Hartman with 1:41 left in the second period. Hartman was bleeding and had to leave the ice.Notes: Predators D P.K. Subban was placed on injured reserve before the game with an upper-body injury, and F Viktor Arvidsson, already on injured reserve, could miss six to eight weeks with a broken thumb. … Nashville activated D Dan Hamhuis from injured reserve for his first game since Oct. 23. … F Austin Watson got an assist in his first game after serving an 18-game suspension for domestic violence.UP NEXTNashville: Hosts Los Angeles on Saturday night.Arizona: Hosts Boston on Saturday night. BOSTON — Claude Julien won a Stanley Cup behind the Boston Bruins‘ bench in 2011.On Saturday night, the Montreal coach returns again with the Canadiens. His latest visit — for the latest installment of hockey’s top rivalry — comes after a Thursday night disappointment in Buffalo.“They out-competed us,” Julien said after a 4-3 loss left the Canadiens 1-1-1 in their last three games. “I’m not going to say our guys didn’t work, but they out-competed us. They won a lot of battles along the walls, way more than usual.Article continues below ...“In our own end, we had to do a better job of killing plays and getting the puck out. We didn’t do a good job of that. They were on pucks quicker than we were on a lot of occasions. But even so, for a road game we were still in the game with a chance to win or at least come out with a point and we blew it. It’s our own fault.”While the Habs (5-2-2, 1-1-2 on the road) were losing in Buffalo Anaheim Ducks T-Shirts Womens , the Bruins improved to 6-2-2 (4-0-0 at home) as Jaroslav Halak pitched a 3-0 shutout over the Philadelphia Flyers in Boston.Halak is 3-0-2 with a 1.43 goals-against average, two shutouts and a .945 save percentage and could be forcing a goaltender controversy as Tuukka Rask has had a subpar start.“It could, absolutely,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said when asked if Halak could force his way into the No. 1 spot. “We (script goalie starts) at the start of the year for — we’ve done it here for years and just to work Tuukka’s starts in because he’s been the number one.“But if Jaro’s able to push him and eventually take the job, if and when that happens, then we’ll look at that. We’re going to try to keep it as balanced as possible early on, and then like we said if one separates himself from the other like every other position here then we’ll allow that to evolve.”The Bruins are 2-0 after going 0-1-2 in the first three games of a four-game road trip. They swept last year’s four-game season series with the Canadiens — after years of frustration.Carey Price has a shot at a milestone Saturday. If he wins, he breaks a tie with Patrick Roy for second-most wins by a Canadiens goalie, with 290 — second only to Jacques Plante’s 314.“Pretty cool experience,” Price said of tying Roy. “It was a great night. Overall, everybody played well. Great effort from everybody.”While the Bruins’ top line of Patrice Bergeron Anaheim Ducks Hoodies Womens , David Pastrnak and Brad Marchand has been on fire — with 19 goals and 44 points in 10 games — new Montreal acquisition has a five-game point streak and 10 points in his first nine games in his new uniform. That makes him the third Hab in the last 20 years with 10 points in his first nine games with the team.Price, 3-1-2 with a 2.48 goals-against average and .906 save percentage this season, is a bawdy 24-11-5 with 2.42/.921 numbers against the Bruins in the regular season.Neither Bruins goalie has great numbers against the Canadiens.Rask, 3-2 with a 3.38 goals-against average and .901 save percentage this season, is just 10-15-3 with 2.41/.917 numbers, but he did beat them three times (five goals against) in eight days last year. Halak is 4-4-0 with 2.92/.889 numbers against Montreal.Through Thursday, the Bruins were 11th in the NHL is goals per game, fifth in goals against and on the power play and 16th in penalty killing. The Canadiens were 14th in goals for, 10th in goals against, 19th on the power play and 22nd on the PK.
