Claus Andersen/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Kings traded Tanner Pearson to the Pittsburgh Penguins forCarl Hagelin Nathan MacKinnon Jersey , the team announced Wednesday.In discussing the move, Kings general manager Rob Blake alluded to the team's5-11-1 record, which has Los Angeles sitting last in the Western Conference."Our team is obviously not in a position that we are comfortable with in terms of how we are playing," Blake said. "This is a change to our lineup that gives us an additional amount of speed. With Carl Hagelin, his No. 1 asset is speed and getting to holes, and we think he will play a big role on the penalty kill for us going forward."Hagelin has one goal and two assists through 16 games this season. The 30-year-old has generallybeen on the icewhen the Penguins found themselves down a man or two, and Pittsburgh rankssixthin penalty kill percentage (84.0).Los Angeles, meanwhile, is down at 21st (78.4 percent) Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , so Hagelincould help in that regard.Some wondered whether Hagelin might also provide value to the Kings in the form of a trade asset later in the year.Sean Shapiro seanshapiroFrom afar it feels like the Kings made this trade with the idea that they could later flip Hagelin before the deadline.Stephen Whyno SWhynoHagelin can be a free agent this summer. Wouldn鈥檛 be at all surprised if Kings flipped him to a contender closer to trade deadline.The Kings could walk away as the winners of this trade, especially if Los Angeles flips Hagelin for a solid return down the road. Early on, though, the Penguins appear to be at the better end of the deal.Sean Tierney ChartingHockeySo, Hagelin and Pearson have been equally brutal so far this year. But Pearsons 26 y.o., locked-in, and cheaper, while Hagelins a 30 y.o. UFA. Unless Im missing something, this is an easy win for PIT. bErfzVQZH5Jesse Marshall jmarshfofThe Penguins: 1. Save Money2. Get Younger3. Get a player that produces more points than Hagelin at 5v5.Great trade Los Angeles Kings T-Shirts Womens , IMO.Pearson has just one assist on the season, but he averaged 40 points per season over the previous three years. Playing alongside Evgeni Malkin andPatric Hornqvist could help Pearson rediscover his scoring touch.The Penguins will also have the benefit of knowing Pearson's cost over the next few years. Hagelin is making$4 millionthis year before hitting free agency, while Pearson will earn$3.75 millionin 2019-20 and 2020-21 before he becomes a free agent.Much like the Kings, the Penguins are playing below expectations. They are7-6-3 and 14th in the Eastern Conference. This move doesn't represent a significant shakeup for Pittsburgh but could help the team improve around the margins. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After dropping the first two playoff games at home in overtime, the Washington Capitals picked up momentum that only got stronger as they took down the Columbus Blue Jackets in four straight.Now they’ll strive to keep the intensity high as they advance to a second-round rematch with the Pittsburgh Penguins.The Capitals, who manhandled the Blue Jackets 6-3 on Monday to cap the opening round series, are looking to avenge second-round playoff losses to Pittsburgh in each of the past two seasons.”I can’t wait to take a step forward,” said Washington star forward Alex Ovechkin Sam Reinhart Jersey , who had two goals on Monday, including his 50th playoff tally. ”They know how to play, they know the pressure. It’s a huge series for us.”Goaltender Braden Holtby relieved a struggling Philipp Grubauer in Game 2 and was great the rest of the way. He had 35 saves Monday in a game in which his team was outshot 38-28. Fifteen of the saves were in the third period when the desperate Blue Jackets turned up the heat.”(He’s) been fantastic,” Ovechkin said. ”He’s stepping up big-time. He’s top goalie in the league, and he showed it today and he showed it in the series.”For his part, Washington coach Barry Trotz wasn’t ready to talk about Pittsburgh yet after a taut opening-round series.”Please let me breathe,” he said. ”We haven’t taken a breath since this started.”Chandler Stephenson had a goal and an assist, and Dimitry Orlov, Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller also scored Monday for Washington Zemgus Girgensons Jersey , which never trailed in OT in Game 5 on Saturday. The Capitals won each of the three games in Columbus.One of the stories for Washington was its ability to defend Columbus’ power play. After the Blue Jackets went 4 for 8 with a man advantage in the first two games, the Caps held them to 0 for 16 in the last four. Meanwhile, Washington took good advantage of Columbus penalties, scoring on the power play in each of the six games.”I think going into the year there wasn’t a lot of people who said we would finish first in the Metro, and we did that,” Trotz said. ”And it’s just creating a pretty consistent culture, and it’s having good players too. It was a tremendous test for us. We didn’t get off to a good start and had to dig ourselves out.”Trotz said he leaned on veterans Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov and others to keep the Capitals on an even keel through the tumult of the season.”We’ve had lots of different adversity through this year and in the past Los Angeles Kings Hoodies Womens , and we’ve grown up a little bit in some ways,” he said. ”We understand that our core group is really, really strong, they believe in each other. We’ve got a lot of young guys in the room. We’ve had to rely on our core to push us forward, and we have.”—
