Lightning top Blues in matchup of NHL’s best teams

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 06:38:30 UT

Tampa Bay goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy erased the memory of a bad outing in St. Louis with one solid performance. Vasilevskiy stopped 32 shots, Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point scored and the visiting Lightning beat the Blues 3-0 on Tuesday night in a matchup of the NHL’s top two teams. Tyler Johnson added an empty netter as Tampa Bay (22-6-2) earned its fifth straight win. It was Vasilevskiy’s third shutout of the season and the seventh of his career. Vasilevskiy, 23, gave up four goals on 16 shots and was pulled from a 5-4 loss at St. Louis last December.

Ducks’ Corey Perry hurt in win over Hurricanes

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 06:31:02 UT

Jakob Silfverberg returned from a five-game injury absence to score the tie-breaking goal late in the second period as the Ducks beat Carolina 3-2 in Anaheim on Monday night. On a night that team captain Ryan Getzlaf returned after missing 19 games after getting hit in the face with a puck, the Ducks lost forward Corey Perry to a potentially serious injury. The 2011 NHL MVP was hurt when his right leg bent awkwardly as he ran into the back of the Hurricanes’ Jeff Skinner. Panthers 2, Red Wings 1: Mike Matheson scored at 2:02 of overtime to give visiting Florida the win. Detroit’s Luke Witkowski returned from a 10-game NHL suspension for returning to the ice to rejoin a fight Nov.

Sharks rally to tie but fall to Wild in overtime

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 06:02:25 UT

The Sharks probably would like to break the habit of falling behind by three goals. Just the same, they found a way Sunday to rally and earn at least one point for the second time in three games after facing a 3-0 deficit. Minnesota’s Nino Niederreiter stole the puck from Sharks defenseman Dylan DeMelo and scored at 3:26 of overtime as the Wild beat the Sharks 4-3 at SAP Center. “We had a chance and he threw it away right to them,” Sharks forward Logan Couture said. “In overtime, possession is key. They skated around in our zone for about a minute there and we were exhausted. You’ve got to hold on to it, you can’t take a chance like that. And that was the result of it.

Crawford leads Blackhawks to 3-1 win over Coyotes

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 05:29:27 UT

The Chicago Blackhawks staggered home last week in desperate need of some positive results. Enter goalie Corey Crawford — and a perfectly timed homestand against three of the worst teams in the NHL. Crawford, activated from injured reserve on Friday before a game against Buffalo, made 31 saves Sunday as the host Blackhawks beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1. Artem Anisimov, Tommy Wingels and Nick Schmaltz scored in the third as Chicago earned its second straight win after dropping five in a row. Patrick Kane had two assists for the Blackhawks, who host struggling Florida on Tuesday.

Aaron Dell, Sharks, roll past Senators

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 07:11:55 UT

The Sharks don’t enjoy a lot of laughers these days. So they’ll savor Saturday night’s for a few minutes before they turn their attention to hosting Minnesota on Sunday. Five skaters scored goals and Aaron Dell registered his second shutout of the season as San Jose beat the Ottawa Senators 5-0 at sold-out SAP Center. “It’s not going to be like this every night. You hope it is, but it’s not. It was a nice win,” said Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic, one of the host’s goal-scorers. Joe Pavelski, Logan Couture, Melker Karlsson and Tomas Hertl joined Vlasic in the goal column and Dell turned aside 25 shots for his third career shutout.

Blues score four times in five-shot span in win

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:57:58 UT

The St. Louis Blues quickly made the most of their limited opportunities. Jaden Schwartz knocked home his own rebound and the Blues scored four times in a five-shot span on the way to beating the Red Wings 6-1 on Saturday in Detroit. Vladimir Sobotka, Scottie Upshall, Jay Bouwmeester, Brayden Schenn and Dmitrij Jaskin also had goals for the Blues in their third straight victory. “That really didn’t seem like a 6-1 game,” Bouwmeester said. “We had the lead for most of it, but we weren’t playing great.” Frans Nielsen scored for Detroit, which has won just once in its past eight games.

Vegas tops Nashville in shootout

Sat, 9 Dec 2017 06:27:11 UT

Malcolm Subban won a matchup of siblings, making 41 saves and then denying all six shootout attempts Friday night to lead the visiting Vegas Golden Knights to a 4-3 victory over All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban and the Nashville Predators. Reilly Smith scored the only goal of a six-round shootout for the Golden Knights, who won their third straight. Nate Schmidt had two assists, and Erik Haula forced overtime when he scored with 40 seconds left in the third period after the Golden Knights pulled Malcolm Subban from the net. Blackhawks 3, Sabres 2: Gustav Forsling scored on a screened shot from the blue line with 4.

NHL will consider expansion team in Seattle

Fri, 8 Dec 2017 06:49:42 UT

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Thursday that the league’s board of governors agreed to consider an expansion application from Seattle. Bettman said the expansion fee has been set at $650 million for Seattle, which could become the league’s 32nd team. “We’ve agreed as a league to take and consider an expansion application, and to let them run in the next few months, a season-ticket drive,” Bettman said. “This is a process that we go through.” Bill Foley paid a $500 million expansion fee for the Vegas Golden Knights, who began play this season.

Flyers make it 2 wins in a row

Thu, 7 Dec 2017 06:15:19 UT

Philadelphia’s Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist as the Flyers beat host Edmonton 4-2 on Wednesday for their second straight victory after losing 10 in a row. Brian Elliott made 24 saves for the win. Ducks 3, Senators 0: Adam Henrique scored two goals and Ryan Miller made 29 saves for his first shutout of the season — the 40th of his career — for host Anaheim. Ottawa lost for the ninth time in 10 games. Maple Leafs 2, Flames 1: William Nylander scored the decisive goal in the fourth round of the shootout for host Toronto, which got 47 saves in regulation and overtime from Frederik Andersen.

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 06:52:44 UT

Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon has been suspended one game by the NHL for slashing Madison Bowey of the Washington Capitals. The league’s department of player safety announced the punishment Tuesday. Dillon was given a major penalty and game misconduct Monday night for slashing Bowey with five seconds left in the third period of San Jose’s 4-1 loss to the Capitals. Dillon will forfeit $17,580.65 of his salary. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

Sharks’ winning streak ends with loss to Tampa Bay

Sun, 3 Dec 2017 07:01:42 UT

TAMPA, Fla. — Tyler Johnson broke out of a scoring slump just in time to help the struggling Tampa Bay Lightning. Johnson scored twice in Tampa Bay’s four-goal third period, snapping a 15-game drought in the process, and the Lightning beat the Sharks 5-2 on Saturday. San Jose had won three in a row. “That’s how hockey goes,” said Johnson, who entered with four goals. “Sometimes you get the chances and bounces and they don’t go your way. Other times, you get those garbage goals that just find a way to go in. Luckily for me, I was able to break through.

Sharks beat Panthers for third straight win

Sat, 2 Dec 2017 07:07:29 UT

Video replay finally worked in favor of the Sharks. Chris Tierney scored in the third period to lift San Jose over the host Florida Panthers 2-1 on Friday, with the Sharks benefiting from two goal reviews. The previous six video reviews had gone against the Sharks in a seven-game span, including two when the Sharks hosted the Panthers on Nov. 16. Tierney gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead with 12:45 left as he backhanded a rebound from the side of the net and the puck bounced off goalie Roberto Luongo’s pads and trickled across the goal line. The play was reviewed because it was unclear whether the puck completely crossed the line.

Kings score twice in 9 seconds in victory

Fri, 1 Dec 2017 05:47:54 UT

Los Angeles’ Jonny Brodzinski and Jussi Jokinen scored the tying and go-ahead goals in a nine-second span of the second period as the Kings rallied to beat the host Washington Capitals 5-2 on Thursday for their third consecutive victory. “It kind of changed the whole hockey game,” Jokinen said of the two quick strikes. “It gave a big lift to our hockey team, and we didn’t have to chase the game anymore, and they had to chase the game.” The Kings, who trailed 2-1 before Brodzinksi’s goal, are back to feeling good after losing seven of eight from Nov. 9-24. This one wasn’t easy, as they had to overcome two goals from Evgeny Kuznetsov.

Ducks top Blues to end 4-game losing streak

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 07:02:08 UT

Antoine Vermette scored twice and John Gibson stopped 37 shots to lead Anaheim to a 3-2 victory over the Blues in St. Louis on Wednesday night. Kevin Roy also scored for the Ducks, who jumped to a 3-0 lead and held on to snap a four-game losing streak. Vermette, who ended an 11-game scoreless drought, had his first multiple-goal game since Nov. 25, 2015. St. Louis won four of its previous five. Bruins 3, Lightning 2: Charlie McAvoy and Riley Nash scored first-period goals and Tuukka Rask made 19 saves to snap his four-game losing streak for host Boston.

Lightning’s defense shines in shutout of Sabres

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 06:30:06 UT

The NHL’s highest-scoring team leaned on its defense to snap a two-game losing streak. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 34 saves in his second shutout of the season, and the Lightning got goals from defensemen Mikhail Sergachev and Dan Girardi in a 2-0 victory in Buffalo on Tuesday night. “When you’re on a little bit of a slide, we’re just trying to get back to basics,” Tampa Bay forward Tyler Johnson said. “Keep it simple, get pucks to the net and get some of those dirty goals.” Tampa Bay is off to the best start in team history (17-5-2) but had lost consecutive games for the first time this season.
