LAS VEGAS (AP) Late Humboldt Broncos coach Darcy Haugan was honored with the inaugural Willie O’Ree Community Hero Award on Wednesday night [url=http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]Michael Hutchinson Jersey Womens[/url] , and 10 of the surviving players were reunited for the first time since the bus crash that killed 16 people.The players donned gold Broncos sweaters at the NHL Awards, 2 1/2 months after the junior team’s bus collided with a semitrailer at an intersection in rural Saskatchewan. Three of the survivors were unable to attend the awards show.Haugan was remembered for telling his players ”it’s a great day to be a Bronco” before each game. The O’Ree award, named for the NHL’s first black player, is presented to an individual who, through hockey, has positively impacted his or her community, culture or society.”We can cry together, we can laugh together, we can do everything together and just kind of heal in our own way,” said Tyler Smith, who suffered nerve damage and significant injuries to his left side, including a broken collarbone and shoulder blade. ”It’s a blessing to be able to be here together. We’re all going to be Broncos forever, and no matter what day it is, it’s a great day to be a Bronco.”Members of the hockey team at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which won a state championship 11 days after 14 students and three staff members were fatally shot in February, also were recognized, as were survivors and first responders of the Route 91 Harvest festival mass shooting in Las Vegas on Oct. 1.”The hockey family across the whole world, I’m very thankful for it. It’s something you don’t really expect [url=http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-miles-wood-jersey]http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-miles-wood-jersey[/url] ,” said Broncos alternate captain Kaleb Dahlgren, who suffered skull and spinal fractures. ”You grow up with these people in your life and you consider them family. You’re with them every day and so hockey is a family community. The support we’ve received from everybody has been very, very, very generous and we’re all thankful for that. It makes the healing process easier.”The NHL and NHLPA hope to continue the healing on Aug. 24, when Washington Capitals forward Chandler Stephenson, a Saskatoon native, will bring the Stanley Cup to Elgar Petersen Arena in Humboldt, as part of an on-ice event that will include an on-ice skills competition between NHL players.”I got the opportunity to meet the Broncos yesterday and their fighting spirit rubs off on you,” said Tampa Bay Lightning Victor Hedman, who was awarded with the Norris Trophy as the top defenseman. ”After those tragedies, the hockey community shows that everyone is together. This is more than just a game, we are family.”It’s such a special place, too, in Vegas. What they went through in October and the way this community rallied together with the hockey team, and the way the performed I think it’s important for me to acknowledge that.”Golden Knights William Karlsson and Deryk Engelland, coach Gerard Gallant and the team’s general manager George McPhee — all four of whom won awards – joined the first responders and survivors honored on stage midway through the show.Engelland, who took home the Mark Messier Leadership Award, said the touching and now infamous ”We Are Vegas Strong” speech he delivered before the Golden Knights’ home opener will always be one of the biggest moments of his hockey career.”Once I knew I was doing it, that’s pretty much all that was going through my head for about four or five days [url=http://www.officialdevils.com/authentic-adidas-nico-hischier-jersey]Nico Hischier Jersey[/url] , so I didn’t want to screw that up,” Engelland said. ”It got us embedded in the community and the community embedded in us. Guys really took it upon themselves to keep winning for the people that were affected and the city. The excitement after every goal during every game really lifted every guy in our locker room.”New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall, who was awarded the Hart Trophy as the league’s MVP, said he was touched by all three ceremonies that recognized the tragedies that took place during the season.”Three terrible tragedies, three things that should never happen, we should never have to go through as a society,” Hall said. ”As a community, as a hockey community, you try and help everyone around you, you try and rally and just be a kind person to one another and hopefully that makes someone feel better.”— TORONTO (AP) — Matt Murray and the Pittsburgh Penguins slowed down Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs.Murray made 38 saves for his first shutout of the season and Pittsburgh snapped Toronto’s winning streak at five games with a stifling 3-0 victory Thursday night.Evgeni Malkin had two goals and an assist, scoring early and adding an empty-net goal. Kris Letang also had an empty-netter, and Sidney Crosby picked up an assist to tie Darryl Sittler for 60th on the NHL’s career points list with 1,221.“It’s the best game this season so far for us,” Malkin said. “We played three periods against Matthews, (John) Tavares. We did a great job.”Matthews, the NHL in scoring with 16 points on 10 goals and six assists, was looking to become the third player in NHL to start a season with eight consecutive multi-point games.“We had a hard time getting on the inside,” Matthews said. “There are a lot of things that we can improve on. It seems like they were just calm, cool [url=http://www.officialpredators.com/authentic-adidas-dan-hamhuis-jersey]Dan Hamhuis Jersey Womens[/url] , collected. They didn’t run around, they just played smart and didn’t force anything.”The Maple Leafs came in averaging an NHL-high 4.71 goals.“They have a lot of offensive weapons,” Crosby said. “We did a great job of limiting their chances. They’re going to get them, they’re a pretty highly-skilled group, but we didn’t give them any freebies.”Murray returned from a concussion that sidelined him for three games. He has seven career shutouts.“We played really solid all the way through and battled hard,” Murray said. “That’s a crazy, dynamic team over there and we were able to hold them off pretty well.”Frederik Andersen stopped 36 shots for Toronto. He was back in goal after sitting out a victory over Los Angeles on Monday night because of a minor knee injury.“All victories, you’ve got to earn,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “It was right there for us to find another step and get better and find a way to get on the inside a little more, and they did a good job and kept us from doing that. There’s a lesson learned in that. “They’re a more veteran, polished playoff team than we are and it showed.”Malkin opened the scoring midway through the first period, six seconds after the Maple Leafs were penalized for too many men on the ice. Crosby won the draw and the puck found its way down low to Malkin, who fired a low shot that beat Andersen through the pads.Notes: Mario Lemieux (1992-93) holds the NHL record for consecutive multi-point games to start a season with 12, while Kevin Stevens, his linemate that season, did it eight times. … Pittsburgh improved to 3-1-2, and Toronto dropped to 6-2-0.UP NEXTPenguins: At Edmonton on Tuesday night.Maple Leafs: Host St. Louis on Saturday night.
