OTTAWA Youth Evgeni Malkin Jersey , Ontario (AP) —Senators are attempting to put the drama behind them after a viral video of him and some teammates criticizing the club and assistant coach Marty Raymond emerged online Monday.Duchene spoke publicly about the incident for the first time Tuesday night after the Senators beat the New Jersey Devils 7-3 in Ottawa.“I want to take this opportunity to extend my absolute sincere apologies to Marty Raymond. He’s a heck of a person and coach and he did not deserve what we said. I sincerely, sincerely mean that on behalf of myself and my teammates,” Duchene said.“It’s been a tough couple of days for a lot of people and we needed to respond and we did (with a win). We’ve dealt with things and everything in (the room) is good. We’re moving forward and it’s hard for me to even talk about because it makes me emotional and it’s not the person I am, or any of us. We’ve done a heck of a job bouncing back tonight as a whole group and I’ve said it all season and I’m going to keep saying it, we have a heck of a group in here.”Ottawa forward Mark Stone said earlier in the day the latest bit of turmoil in the ongoing saga of the Senators is a “hiccup,” and that the team has already done work to repair the frayed relationship between players and coaches that was laid bare in the video.The video showed seven Senators players during an Uber ride in Phoenix last month insulting the team and Raymond. Stone said Tuesday the matter already was addressed before the five-minute clip surfaced.“It’s disappointing the way the video got released,” he said. “We dealt with this long before this video was released. As a coaching staff, as management, as players it was dealt with internally and the way it should be Jake Guentzel Jersey Kids , and we’re going to move forward and grow from it.“We don’t want negative stuff surrounding our team and this is a hiccup. I think guys have made a great effort to repair relationships. This is only going to make our team stronger going forward.”The video was the latest humiliation for the organization over the past two years: owner Eugene Melnyk threatening to move the team; alleged cyberbullying involving the wife of former star captain Erik Karlsson; and harassment allegations against former assistant general manager Randy Lee.The players in the Uber were Duchene, Chris Wideman, Chris Tierney, Thomas Chabot, Alex Formenton (since sent down to the juniors), Dylan DeMelo and Colin White.They were discussing the team’s ineffective penalty killing and mocking Raymond in what appears to be a recording from a camera mounted on the dashboard.Uber Canada’s General Manager Rob Khazzam said on his Twitter account that video taken of a private conversation without passenger consent is a “clear violation of our terms of service.” He said such conduct is “totally unacceptable” and merits investigation.None of the players involved discussed the video Tuesday.“As a leader of this team I want to be supporting my teammates,” Stone said. “It’s something I never want anyone to go through with it. As a coaching staff and management and players, we’re trying to form a bond that turns this team into the right direction and this is a hiccup, but I think we’re on the right track of doing that.”Defenseman Mark Borowiecki acknowledged the Senators would have to deal with the “consequences” and “ramifications” of the video.“But we want to keep this in house as much as we can and deal with it appropriately http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-justin-schultz-jersey ,” he said.In the video, Duchene, one of the Senators’ alternate captains, is heard saying: “Marty Raymond, the only coach in NHL history to have the worst power-play and the worst PK within a calendar year.”Duchene later adds that he hasn’t “paid attention in three weeks” in Raymond’s meetings.The players apologized to Raymond in a statement Monday.Raymond, in his third season with the Senators, was responsible for the power play for much of last season and is in charge of the team’s penalty-killing this year. Ottawa’s penalty killing ranks 30th in the league.Senators coach Guy Boucher said the team is trying to move forward and concentrate on Tuesday night’s home game against New Jersey.“I don’t know who makes decisions to put things like that out there, but when you purposely try to hurt another human being, I don’t want to spend too much time on that Kris Letang Jersey , and especially probably the best human being I know (Raymond), that’s personal,” Boucher said.During the morning skate Duchene was seen talking and laughing with Raymond as the two held a brief conversation at center ice.The matter has raised concerns about player privacy.“We’re all totally aware that any time someone says to you this is off the record … nothing is off the record in your life. So let’s get that straight,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said at the Maple Leafs’ morning skate Tuesday.Many Maple Leaf players said it’s imperative for players to be aware of their surroundings when having a private conversation. And defenseman Travis Dermott expressed some sympathy for the Ottawa players.“I mean, tough bounce for them. They’re going to have to deal with that, but it could happen to anyone, really.”Added Vegas Golden Knights winger Ryan Reaves: “I would never expect a cab ride conversation to be made public, but that’s the world we live in right now. Everybody’s a snitch.” ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The California road swing has traditionally posed problems for the Toronto Maple Leafs. That wasn’t the case this season.Morgan Reilly scored with 1:43 remaining in overtime to lift the Maple Leafs over the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 on Friday night for a three-game sweep through the Golden State.The win allowed Toronto to overtake Nashville and Tampa Bay for the NHL’s best record at 14-6-0. The Maple Leafs — who beat Los Angeles on Tuesday and San Jose on Thursday — have won six of seven and are unbeaten in three overtime games this season.Coming into the trip Mario Lemieux Jersey , Toronto had dropped 10 of 12 in California.“I’ve had lots of good teams come out here and not be able to do it. One team always seems to get you on the back to back,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “I think we have some real good veterans, and we have to be steady on the rudder. We have the chance to be a real good team over time and have to keep on building.”Reilly was wide open to the right of goalie John Gibson when he took a pass from Mitch Marner and unleashed a wrist shot for his ninth of the season. It is Marner’s 20th assist and 26th point, which puts him tied for second in the league in scoring. Reilly is tied for sixth with 25 points.Patrick Marleau scored Toronto’s other goal. Garret Sparks, who was playing in only his fourth game of the season, stopped a career-high 38 shots.“I felt pretty good. I didn’t like the goal I let in, but other than that it is all about competing and trying to get in front of the next puck,” Sparks said.Pontus Aberg scored for Anaheim and Gibson stopped 33 shots. The Ducks have dropped three of four.Anaheim had a couple of open-goal chances in the third period but was unable to convert.“We’ve been snakebit to provide offense and tonight was a demonstration of that,” Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said. “It was probably the most frustrating time all year because of the open nets we missed.”Marleau opened the scoring less than seven minutes into the game when he positioned himself in front of the net and redirected Jake Gardiner’s pass with his left skate. It is the 539th goal of Marleau’s career Matt Murray Jersey , giving him sole possession of 32nd place on the NHL’s career listAberg tied it with less than two minutes remaining in the second period with a 45-foot slap shot for his team-leading sixth. The goal broke a Ducks’ scoring drought of 124:05, dating back to the second period of Monday’s game against Nashville.NOTES: Toronto is 9-0 when scoring first this season. … The Maple Leafs are 2-1-0 in the second game of back-to-backs. … Marleau has 32 goals against Anaheim, which ranks first among active players. … Toronto C John Tavares had a seven-game point streak snapped. He had five goals and five assists during that span. … Aberg has points in three of his last five games (two goals and an assist). … Anaheim has successfully killed 28 of its last 31 when it has been a man down. … The Ducks have gone to overtime in a league-high seven home games and are 3-2-2. … Anaheim has limited teams to two or fewer goals in 11 games this season, which is tied for second in the league. Boston leads with 12.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: Host Columbus on Monday.Ducks: Host Colorado on Sunday.
