(SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Kreider showed his former coach a few things last time out. The New York forward will look to build off his first career hat trick on Monday night as the Rangers welcome the Winnipeg Jets to Madison Square Garden. Coming off a 3-2 loss to Boston the previous day, the Rangers prepared for a big showdown with the John Tortorella-led Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. It marked Tortorellas first trip back to New York after being fired by the Rangers during the offseason. Tortorella was replaced as coach by Alain Vigneault, who was let go by the Canucks over the summer to create the position filled by Tortorella. Vigneault opted to shake up his lines ahead of Saturdays game and one move was putting Kreider on the top line with Rick Nash and Derek Stephan. It paid off as Kreider scored three times in the 5-2 win. The 22-year-old now has six goals and 16 points in 20 games this season after logging just two goals and one assist in three games last season under Tortorella. He credited his linemates with Saturdays success. "Those are just the kind of players they are. It doesnt matter really who you put with them, theyre so good. Ive been really lucky to have some good linemates this year," Kreider said. Nash scored and had two assists, while Stepan finished with a pair of helpers. Defenseman Michael Del Zotto -- a healthy scratch in the previous two games and five of the last eight -- also scored in New Yorks fourth victory in six games. Backup goaltender Cam Talbot made a career-high 35 saves, moving to 6-1-0 on the season. He has not allowed more than two goals in any of his seven starts, the first of his NHL career, while giving some rest to No. 1 Henrik Lundqvist. The Jets visit New York looking to get their struggling power play on track. They went 0-for-6 in Fridays 2-1 setback to the Philadelphia Flyers and rank 28th in the league on the man advantage at 11.5 percent. Winnipeg also allowed its NHL high-tying fifth short-handed goal in Fridays defeat. "Our power play was disappointing. We cant get anything out of it and havent been able to through the years. Its not like its anything new for us. Finding solutions to that issue and problem is certainly a challenge for us," said Winnipeg coach Claude Noel. Michael Frolik had a third-period goal and Ondrej Pavelec made 32 saves for the Jets, who had won the first two of a six-game road trip and fell to 2-3-2 in their past seven games overall. Winnipeg lost forward Evander Kane to a lower-body injury in the first period and he did not skate in Saturdays outdoor practice in Central Park. He is tied for second on the club with seven goals, but has not been ruled out for this game. The Jets have lost five of their last seven meetings with the Rangers, including three of the four games played in New York since the Winnipeg franchise relocated from Atlanta. Lundqvist is 10-7-6 with a 2.19 goals against average in his career versus the franchise, while Pavelec has gone 4-4-1 with a 2.34 GAA lifetime against the Rangers. Sven Ulreich Jersey
. 1. CAVALIERS: At 19-20, theyre a mess. Watched the game Tuesday night vs. Phoenix and their defence was poor (107 points and 52 per cent for Suns). Where is the high level play from Kyrie Irving and LeBron James (13 turnovers!)? Kevin Love looks like a man thats wondering what he got himself into. Sinan Kurt Bayern Munich Jersey

His best performance was in a 4-3 win over Montreal on Friday, where he posted a season-high three points (two goals, one assist), including the game-winning goal.The Eastern Conference finals shift to South Beach Saturday night when the Indiana Pacers visit the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena. The series is tied 1-1, but the biggest question for Game 3 was answered Friday. Paul George, the Pacers best player, is a go for Saturday night. Catch the game on TSN starting at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt. Indianas All-Star forward suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of Tuesdays 87-83 loss in Game 2. In a dive for a loose ball, Miamis Dwyane Wade kneed George in the back of the head. George remained face down on the court for several minutes, but stayed in the game. He passed the in-game concussion test and admitted after the game that "he blacked out." He was diagnosed with a concussion following the game and was subjected to the leagues concussion protocol. On Friday night, the team announced that George passed and "barring any unforeseen complications, he will play in Saturdays game at the Miami Heat." "Im going to approach it the best way I can," George said before he was officially cleared. The Pacers, who are 5-0 following a loss this postseason, need George, the teams best player, to perform. Hes tasked with covering LeBron James and is the leading scorer for a team that has trouble scoring. Game 2 was a perfect showcase for what the Heats superstars can still do. James and Wade scored or assisted on the final 33 points for Miami en route to viictory.dddddddddddd. Wade shot an efficient 10-for-16 en route to a team-high 23 points, while James tacked on 22 with seven rebounds, six assists and three blocked shots in the triumph. Norris Cole and Chris Andersen did their part as well, contributing 11 points and 12 rebounds, respectively, off the bench. Miami trailed 73-69 following Georges deep 3-ball at 7:19 of the fourth, but James netted nine straight Miami points during a 13-2 run. Wade then followed James missed layup with a tip-slam, and padded the cushion with a short jumper. The late flurry all but sealed the margin for the Heat. "I needed to do something in the fourth," said James. "I needed to make a few buckets to help us in the fourth quarter and I was able to come through for us." Lance Stephenson scored 25 points to lead Indiana, which failed to build off of its impressive Game 1 win and hold home court advantage. Roy Hibbert had 12 points and 13 rebounds. All five Indiana starters scored double figures for the second straight game while once again James and Wade were the lone Heat starters to crack double digits, but Miamis reserves outscored their counterparts, 20-9. George had 14 points, while George Hill chipped in 13 and David West was held to just 10. The Heat have won all five home games during the playoffs and four in a row against the Pacers as the host. Game 4 will be Monday night in Miami. ' ' '
