Mikkel Boedker, Logan Couture help Sharks top St. Louis

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 06:26:59 UT

ST. LOUIS — With five goals and two assists in his past four games, Mikkel Boedker is on quite a tear at an opportune time. Boedker and Logan Couture each had a goal and an assist, sending the Sharks to a 3-2 victory over the slumping Blues on Tuesday night. “When you’re on a roll, the puck seems to find you a little bit,” Boedker said. “It feels really good. Obviously, it’s a good time of the year to be productive.” Joonas Donskoi also scored and Martin Jones made 30 saves for San Jose, which has won five of its past six games. “He was money tonight,” Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer said about Jones.



Brayden Point scores 2 goals to help Lightning beat Capitals 4-2

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 06:11:55 UT

The plan was simple: Score early against a weary opponent and ride the momentum the rest of the way. The Lightning carried out the plan perfectly, turning a big first period into a 4-2 victory over the Capitals in Washington on Tuesday night in a matchup of division leaders in the Eastern Conference. Washington had played in Buffalo one day earlier, which played significantly into Tampa Bay’s game plan. Brayden Point sandwiched two goals around a goal by Chris Kunitz to make it 3-0 after the first period. That proved to be enough of a cushion for goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, who stopped 35 shots to earn his NHL-leading 35th win. “A good first period, and then we kind of hung on,” Point said.



Connor McDavid’s hat trick leads Oilers over Avalanche

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 06:40:15 UT

Edmonton’s Connor McDavid had his third hat trick of the season and the visiting Oilers beat Colorado 4-2 on Sunday afternoon to snap a six-game losing streak. McDavid has 11 goals in the past nine games and two hat tricks. “Obviously the team isn’t finding a way to have success, but it’s a credit to the guys I’m playing with,” McDavid said. “It’s been pretty fluid, I’ve been playing with a bunch of guys, and it’s a credit to them.” Each of his first two goals tied the game Sunday, and his last one was into an empty net at 18:34 of the third. Ryan Strome also scored and Cam Talbot had 24 saves for the Oilers, who snapped the Avalanche’s 10-game home winning streak.



Behind 4 goals in first, Sharks roll past Stars

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 06:10:18 UT

Head coach Peter DeBoer called it one of the Sharks’ better games of the season. And it couldn’t have come at a more pivotal juncture. The Sharks scored four times in the first period and zipped to a five-goal lead on the strength of Joe Pavelski’s line and Mikkel Boedker’s recent goal streak. Goalie Martin Jones was solid when needed as San Jose rolled to a 5-2 victory over the Stars on Sunday night at SAP Center. “We had a couple of days of rest and we had great energy to start,” DeBoer said. “We got our legs and were executing. We took our foot off the gas a little bit in third, which is natural with a big lead, but there wasn’t much to complain about. It was pretty solid.



Ducks beat Wild in 11-round shootout

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 06:44:19 UT

Nick Ritchie isn’t one of the first players called upon for the Anaheim Ducks in a shootout. He wasn’t among the first 10 shooters Saturday. Yet, Ritchie scored in the 11th round of the shootout and John Gibson stopped the final seven shooters in the Ducks’ 3-2 victory over the host Minnesota Wild. “It seems like once it gets over five or six (rounds) it can go over 15 sometimes, so there was a good chance I was going to get a shot there and I capitalized on it,” said Ritchie, whose quick shot split the pads of goalie Devan Dubnyk. Ritchie missed his other shootout attempt this season. Prior to the goal, the teams combined for 13 straight misses.



Greiss stops 45 shots as Islanders move past Hurricanes

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 05:44:31 UT

After allowing 19 goals in his previous four games, Thomas Greiss finally had the breakthrough night he and the New York Islanders were looking for. Greiss stopped 45 shots for his first shutout of the season, and the Islanders beat the host Carolina Hurricanes 3-0 on Friday night. “He was great,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said. “He was confident. He came in and did a job. He made the saves he had to.” Johnny Boychuk, Anthony Beauvillier and John Tavares scored for the Islanders, who moved past Carolina into the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.



Sharks’ Brent Burns has goal, assist in win over Canucks

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:40:47 UT

All Brent Burns needed to do was move back to defense and he was, well, Brent Burns again. The Norris Trophy defenseman shook off an unproductive first period while playing forward and, after returning to the blue line, scored a goal and assisted on another to spark the Sharks to a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks at SAP Center on Thursday night. “It’s not easy jumping in, getting new linemates or playing a new position,” Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. “Credit to him for what he can create from the back end. He went back there and changed the game for us.



Vegas’ Karlsson scores 30th goal in win over Edmonton

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 07:29:51 UT

Vegas’ William Karlsson got the 100th point of his career with his 30th goal of the season as the host Golden Knights beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 on Thursday night. Ryan Carpenter, Jonathan Marchessault and Erik Haula also scored for Vegas, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots. Leon Draisaitl scored and Cam Talbot finished with 24 saves for the Oilers, who have lost five straight. Vegas improved to 14-1-1 against Pacific Division teams in its inaugural season. Its two losses both came against the Oilers, including an 8-2 loss in Edmonton on Nov. 14.



Golden Knights net 4 third-period goals to beat Blackhawks

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 07:04:16 UT

Reilly Smith scored the go-ahead goal in the third period, and the Western Conference-leading Vegas Golden Knights sent visiting Chicago to a season-high seventh loss in a row, 5-2 on Tuesday night. The Golden Knights also got third-period goals from Brad Hunt, David Perron and Tomas Nosek. Ryan Carpenter scored earlier in the game and Marc-Andre Fleury had 29 saves for Vegas, which snapped a two-game home losing streak. The last-place Blackhawks have been outscored 29-12 during their losing streak. The Golden Knights wasted no time in seizing control early in the third period, with three goals in less than five minutes.



Sharks rally to beat Anaheim in shootout

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 06:14:03 UT

ANAHEIM — The Sharks were down late against Anaheim, but their confidence did not waver. To hear Logan Couture tell it, the Sharks were too naive to be afraid against the five-time defending Pacific Division champion. “Maybe guys are just young and they don’t know better,” Couture said. Timo Meier tied it with 53.7 seconds left, Joe Pavelski and Couture scored in the shootout, and San Jose rallied to beat the Ducks 3-2 on Sunday night. Martin Jones made 25 saves in the Sharks’ second straight win. Jones stopped Adam Henrique’s shot in the first round, and Rickard Rakell hit the post in the second.



Penguins’ Sidney Crosby scores 400th goal in win as his dad watches

Mon, 12 Feb 2018 06:00:51 UT

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby scored twice, including his 400th career goal, and the Penguins pulled away from the Blues for a 4-1 victory in St. Louis on Sunday. Crosby had not scored in his previous 10 games dating to Jan. 14. The captain stopped the drought in the second period in front of his father, Troy, who was on the two-game dads’ trip that began Friday in Dallas. “It’s tough when you’re waiting that long to get it, but it’s definitely worth the wait to have my dad here,” Crosby said. “So many early mornings and sacrifices so I could play hockey. It’s special to have him here.



Joakim Ryan scores first two goals as Sharks win

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 07:05:37 UT

Joakim Ryan scored the first two goals of his career — the second of which broke a late-game tie — as the Sharks beat the Edmonton Oilers 6-4 Saturday night at SAP Center. The only bummer was his father Bill Ryan was ill and couldn’t attend Saturday night’s game along with the Sharks players’ other dads. “It was kind of crazy. He’s going to meet us in Anaheim tomorrow if he feels better,” Ryan said of San Jose’s quick turnaround game against the Ducks on Sunday. “But maybe he should stay home more often.” The rookie defenseman picked up a rebound of his own shot and beat Edmonton goalie Al Montoya at 17:33 of the third period to give the hosts a 5-4 lead.



Devan Dubnyk sharp as Wild shuts out Blackhawks

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 06:47:10 UT

Devan Dubnyk made sure the host Minnesota Wild didn’t let another three-goal lead slip away, especially not with a chance to keep the rival Chicago Blackhawks reeling. Dubnyk made a season-high 44 saves, Charlie Coyle scored twice and the Wild beat the Blackhawks 3-0 on Saturday night. Mikko Koivu also scored in the first period for Minnesota. It was Dubnyk’s fourth shutout of the season and No.28 for his career. On Thursday night, the Wild gave up a 3-0 lead to Arizona and lost 4-3 in overtime. “It’s funny we end up 3-0 again,” Dubnyk said. “So, couldn’t have written it any better to give ourselves a chance at a do-over, and we did that.



Nelson’s OT goal completes hat trick as Isles tip Red Wings 7-6

Sat, 10 Feb 2018 06:59:30 UT

Brock Nelson scored his third goal of the game 3:15 into overtime and the host New York Islanders, boosted by a late flurry, beat the Detroit Red Wings 7-6 on Friday night. The Islanders trailed 5-2 with 6:33 left in regulation when Detroit’s Tyler Bertuzzi was assessed a major game misconduct for slashing Cal Clutterbuck. New York took advantage as Nelson, Anders Lee, Nick Leddy and Josh Bailey scored power-play goals in a 3:37 span. Bailey’s goal gave New York its first lead of the game with 1:49 left in regulation. But Mike Green’s goal with 29 seconds remaining forced overtime.



Sharks fall as Knights score three goals in third

Fri, 9 Feb 2018 07:20:54 UT

At this point of the season, the Vegas Golden Knights don’t have a lot left to prove. Nonetheless, the NHL expansion team is never short on surprises. James Neal broke a tie at 15:10 of the third period as Vegas posted a 5-3 come-from-behind win over the Sharks on Thursday at SAP Center. “They’re a really fast team, they’re good off the rush and they take what you give them,” Sharks forward Timo Meier said. “Tonight, we gave them too much and they took advantage of the chances we gave them.” Neal beat goalie Martin Jones from the left circle after Neal and teammate David Perron worked a give-and-go that victimized Sharks defensemen Brent Burns and Justin Braun.
