ANNAPOLIS [url=]Authentic Carl Gunnarsson Jersey[/url] , Md. (AP) Less than a minute after each of his team’s goals, Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Frederik Andersen gave up a score to the Washington Capitals. Didn’t take long for him to get pulled from the Stadium Series outdoor game at the U.S. Naval Academy, either.Andersen turned in his latest shaky performance as the playoffs approach, allowing five goals on 25 shots in a little more than 1 1/2 periods Saturday night, and the Leafs lost to Alex Ovechkin’s Capitals 5-2.Toronto coach Mike Babcock seemed to finally lose patience with the Danish goalie that Toronto has been figuring it could count on to carry the team when the games matter the most. Andersen was given the hook because of poor play for the only time in 55 starts this season; he was taken out of a game on Feb. 5 after being hit on the head by another player’s skate.Why make the change?”Well, just [url=]Colton Parayko Jersey[/url] , I mean, it was going in. And I didn’t want to leave him in there and (have) a bunch more go in,” Babcock said. ”He’s our guy. He’s our starter. We’ve got to look after him the best we can.”Rather than assign blame to Andersen, Babcock spoke more generally about mistakes his others players made against an opponent that eliminated the Maple Leafs in the first round of the playoffs last season.”They look at us,” he said about the Capitals, ”and they still think we’re kids. And it looked like we were kids here tonight. I thought they smacked us around.”This was the fourth game in a row – and eighth in his past nine appearances – that Andersen allowed at least three goals. And after streaking into strong position in the Eastern Conference by winning 13 of 15 games [url=][/url ] , Toronto has now lost three in a row on a road trip that will conclude on Monday at the Buffalo Sabres.Andersen was replaced by backup Curtis McElhinney 11 minutes, 10 seconds into the second period. That was 21 seconds after Washington winger Jakub Vrana’s breakaway goal – his first score in about 2 months – made it 5-2.Other goals against Andersen were scored by Ovechkin – for his 40th this season and the 598th of his career – Nicklas Backstrom, Evgeny Kuznetsov and John Carlson.Ovechkin’s made it 2-1 in the second period, and arrived only 59 seconds after Zach Hyman put the puck past Capitals goalie Braden Holtby to temporarily tie things. Carlson’s goal came just 43 seconds after Nazem Kadri spun around and zipped a shot in to get Toronto within 3-2.Andersen didn’t offer much by way of explanation for the way this game went, although he did mention that the outdoor conditions might have made finding the puck more of a challenge than usual. He was sitting on the bench with a white wool cap on by the time the artificial lights went out in the third period, causing about a 15-minute delay.”There were certain spots where the lights – the reflection off the ice – was a little different [url=]Youth Jaden Schwartz Jersey[/url] ,” he said. ”But it’s something both goalies have to potentially face.”— SEATTLE (AP) The group looking to bring professional hockey to Seattle has taken the next step in the pursuit of an NHL franchise.The Oak View Group and its prospective NHL ownership group, led by billionaire David Bonderman and filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer, submitted its expansion application with the National Hockey League on Tuesday.”We are excited for the next steps in the process and our continued partnership with the City of Seattle,” Oak View CEO Tim Leiweke said in a statement.The expansion application has been expected for weeks and is the next step in Seattle’s ongoing hope of bringing an NHL franchise to the largest market in the United States without a professional winter sports franchise. The filing also included a $10 million deposit. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan also tweeted her excitement about Oak View’s filing with the NHL.If Seattle is successful in its expansion bid, the new franchise would bring the league to an even 32 teams with 16 in each conference. A new team would also yield a hefty expansion fee – in the neighborhood of $650 million.The expansion application is a procedural step that was necessary to validate Oak View’s intent on making Seattle the next NHL market. Seattle’s application will be reviewed and ultimately the league’s executive committee will make a recommendation to the full NHL Board of Governors. The timeline for that is unknown.The expansion franchise process is running concurrent with a $660 million remodel of KeyArena being privately financed by OVG. The group has an aggressive timeline for construction that could have the renovated building open in time for the 2020-21 NHL season.The first test in how willing Seattle is to embrace the NHL will arrive in the coming weeks and months when the prospective ownership group begins a season-ticket drive, the same way the league tested Las Vegas. Any NHL team in Seattle would find a completely different landscape than a decade ago when the Sonics and NBA moved to Oklahoma City and the city lost its winter sports outlet.Seattle’s skyline is filled with as many construction cranes as snowcapped peaks in the surrounding mountains. Amazon has taken over an entire section of the city [url=]Joel Edmundson Jersey[/url] , joined nearby by satellite offices of Google and Facebook. The amount of wealth now in the Seattle market is part of the reason Oak View CEO Tim Leiweke has regularly called Seattle ”a brilliant marketplace” and one of the most enticing expansion opportunities in pro sports history.Seattle has become a city of transplants due to the booming local economy. A hockey franchise would provide those newcomers a team to rally around, much like what happened when the Sounders of the MLS arrived in 2009.But finding a foothold in Seattle will be an examination of how starved fans are for another team. Basketball is embedded in the DNA of the region thanks to 41 years of the SuperSonics until 2008 and a lengthy history of producing NBA talent.While the ownership group for the potential NHL franchise appears set, there remains some concern about having the new arena ready by the 2020 season. OVG and the city reached agreement on a memorandum of understanding for the arena in December. Councilmembers praised the agreement for including benefits for the city, including $20 million in cash and in-kind contributions to nonprofit organizations and another $40 million to help improve transportation in the area around Seattle Center.The MOU was the first step in a process that will include an environmental review. The city still needs to finalize several key documents with the developer, including the lease and other agreements.Under the MOU, Oak View Group would be responsible for regular facility upgrades for the life of the 39-year lease agreement. Should those upgrade requirements be met [url=][/url ] , there are two eight-year lease extensions that will be activated, and carry the entire life of the lease agreement to 55 years.—AP Hockey Writer John Wawrow contributed to this report.
