MONTREAL (AP) A high-intensity hockey game between the Dallas Stars and Montreal Canadiens took a dangerous turn in the third period Tim Schaller Jersey Womens , when Andrew Shaw left with an injury.Montreal defeated Dallas 4-2 on Tuesday night but the game went sour when Shaw hobbled off the ice after a helmet-to-helmet collision with former teammate Greg Pateryn.Shaw knocked Pateryn down with a big hit along the boards with 11 minutes left, but the Canadiens winger got the worst of it when their heads collided. With Shaw lying on the ice, Pateryn punched him twice in the head.”Kind of makes you feel sick when you see that,” Montreal defenseman Karl Alzner said. ”It’s like in UFC when the guy keeps going after a knockout. It’s unacceptable. You get fired up in the moment and you do things you don’t necessarily think through. It’s not something you ever want to see.”Added Jonathan Drouin: ”I thought Andrew’s hit was clean. I didn’t like the two punches at the end when his head was down on the ice. I think the league might take a look at that one.”After the hit, Shaw lay motionless for several minutes before getting to his feet. He had to be helped off the ice.Canadiens coach Claude Julien said team doctors were monitoring Shaw, but he was not taken to a hospital. Julien said Shaw was ”shaken up,” but did not call it a concussion. Shaw suffered two concussions last season.”He took a run at me and his head hit mine,” said Pateryn, who had an assist on Dallas’ first goal. ”There’s a reason why a guy like that gets four or five concussions a year. His play speaks for itself.”The Canadiens (26-32-12) scored three power-play goals as they snapped their five-game skid. Montreal had not won since March 2.Artturi Lehkonen scored twice and Brendan Gallagher and Nikita Scherbak had a goal apiece. Alex Galchenyuk had two assists.Antti Niemi made 36 saves for his fifth victory of the season. Niemi has not lost in regulation since Feb. 14 Jay Beagle Jersey Womens , going 3-0-3 during that stretch. The Canadiens were at home for the first time since a 1-3-2 trip.Lehkonen tied it 1-all with a wrist shot, blocker side, at 16:31 of the first period.A four-minute high-sticking penalty to Dan Hamhuis in the second changed the course of the game, with Montreal scoring twice in 35 seconds.First, Lehkonen beat goalie Kari Lehtonen between the legs from the slot at 8:41. And after Radek Faksa took a tripping penalty to give the Canadiens a two-man advantage, Gallagher scored his team-leading 26th of the season at 9:16.Scherbak made it 4-2, again on the power play, at 9:26 of the third.”Especially at this time of the year, with teams pushing for the playoffs Curtis McKenzie Jersey Womens , every game is so tight,” said Galchenyuk, who has eight points in his last eight games. ”One or two power plays can make a big difference. It definitely gave us momentum.”The game marked Alexander Radulov’s return to the Bell Centre. Radulov had not faced his former club in Montreal since signing with Dallas as a free agent in the offseason.Faksa got Dallas (38-26-6) on the board at 11:48 of the first period as he deflected Pateryn’s shot past Niemi. Jamie Benn made it 3-2 with 1:40 remaining in the second. Radulov got an assist on the goal.The Stars have lost four of five.”It’s bad,” Radulov said. ”We need points. We’re in the playoff race and we didn’t get it done. We put ourselves in that position. It’s our fault.”The Canadiens announced during the game that defenseman Shea Weber underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn tendon in his left foot. The team expects his recovery to take six months.Weber is thought to have been injured when he was hit by a shot in the first game of the season. The 32-year-old has not played since Dec. 16.NOTES: The Stars are two games into a six-game road trip. … The Stars beat Montreal 3-1 earlier this season in Dallas.UP NEXTStars: At the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.Canadiens: Host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.— NEW YORK — On Wednesday night, the New York Islanders might begin to get an extended look at the goaltender they thought could serve as a No. 1 netminder this season.And the Vegas Golden Knights might finally get re-acquainted with their biggest offseason addition.Goalie Robin Lehner could receive a second straight start for the Islanders on Wednesday night, when they host the Golden Knights — and possibly center Paul Stastny — at Barclays Center.Article continues below ...The Islanders lost their most recent game Monday, when they fell to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in the shootout at Nassau Coliseum. The Golden Knights last played Sunday, when they beat the visiting Dallas Stars 4-2.Lehner, making his first start of the month Nick Holden Jersey Womens , recorded 23 saves Monday night for the Islanders (14-11-4). It was just the 12th start this year for Lehner, who was expected to be the top goalie for New York when it signed him to a one-year deal in July.Lehner posted a shutout against the San Jose Sharks in his Islanders debut Oct. 8 and allowed two goals or fewer in four of his first seven starts. But he suffered a back injury against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Oct. 30 and has made only five starts since, a span in which he’s gone 0-3-2.Thomas Greiss, meanwhile, has gone 8-4-1 since Nov. 1 to solidify himself as the Islanders’ number one goalie.“In the beginning, when I played good, they let me play,” Greiss told Newsday. “When Greiss played good, they let him play. That’s the way it should be.”Greiss has never been a season-long No. 1 goalie Paul Stastny Jersey Womens , though, so the Islanders could give Lehner a second straight start to see if he has begun to recover the form that made him a solid netminder earlier this decade for the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres.The Golden Knights (17-14-1) know what they have in Stastny, whom they signed to a three-year deal in July with the hopes he could get Vegas over the top after a stunning expansion season in which it advanced to the Stanley Cup Final.But Stastny, who collected 53 points last season for the St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets, suffered a lower-body injury against the Sabres Oct. 8 and hasn’t played since. He accompanied the Golden Knights to New York and skated at practice Tuesday.Vegas coach Gerald Gallant said Tuesday he hoped Stastny can return to game action during the four-game road trip that begins Wednesday — the Golden Knights will also visit the New York Rangers, New Jersey Devils and the Columbus Blue Jackets — but didn’t say if he could play against the Islanders.“He’s been out for a long time, but he’s a very important player,” Gallant told reporters following practice. “We signed him in the summertime and we think he’s a real elite two-way player.”Marc-Andre Fleury, the Golden Knights No. 1 goalie Max Pacioretty Jersey Womens , is likely to get the start in net Wednesday. Fleury is 23-11-5 in 42 regular-season games against the Islanders.Lehner lost his only start against the Golden Knights on March 10, when he made 33 saves as the Sabres fell 2-1 in the shootout. Greiss has never faced Vegas.The Islanders are the only team the Golden Knights haven’t beat. New York earned a 6-3 win at Barclays Center on Oct. 30, 2017 and recorded a 2-1 in Las Vegas on Jan. 25.
