William Karlsson’s hat trick helps Vegas blank Flames

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 05:31:19 UT

In a game that included William Karlsson’s natural hat trick and Marc-Andre Fleury getting his 48th career shutout and 401st win, Vegas head coach Gerard Gallant credited a hit by forward Ryan Reaves as the biggest play. Barely two minutes into the second period, Reaves — acquired from Pittsburgh on Feb. 23 — flattened TJ Brodie with a blast that sidelined Calgary’s defenseman for the remainder of the game while sparking the Golden Knights’ recently stagnant offense. “That was the difference,” Gallant said after Vegas’ 3-0 win over the Flames on Sunday. “That changed the game around. It was a big, clean hit.

Ross McKeon: Sharks spreading the wealth

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 05:53:41 UT

While jockeying for position in the Stanley Cup playoffs kicks into high gear over these last couple of weeks, it’s time to venture off into the corner and deliver a few checks: •If Melker Karlsson finds the back of the net two more times, the Sharks will have a dozen skaters with double-digit goal totals for only the second time. Twelve Sharks scored at least 10 goals with San Jose in 1993-94, the franchise’s third season. This is proof that coach Peter DeBoer is getting depth scoring from four lines during an era when scoring goals is harder to do. Sharks captain Joe Pavelski is second on San Jose with 18 goals.

Alex Ovechkin joins NHL’s exclusive 600-goal club by scoring twice in win

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 06:07:26 UT

Everyone around Alex Ovechkin had a hunch this was his night.By the time he scored the 599th goal of his career, Ovechkin sensed it, too. Less than four minutes into the second period — long before Evgeny Kuznetsov’s overtime winner gave host Washington a 3-2 win over Winnipeg to go back into first place — Ovechkin became a member of the NHL’s 600-goal club. The Russian winger, 32, became the fourth-fastest player to 600, behind Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull. “When I score 599, I felt like, ‘OK, I still have to make a push two periods,’” Ovechkin said. “Finally, I scored.

At 19, Jets’ Patrik Laine among NHL’s top scorers

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 23:38:16 UT

WASHINGTON — Patrik Laine knows where he stands. The Winnipeg Jets’ winger might not keep track of each time Alex Ovechkin or Evgeni Malkin scores, but he knows how many goals each man has. “I just sometimes look at the scoreboard and the scoresheets,” Laine said. “I always pretty much know where’s everyone at.” Through Sunday, Laine was tied with Ovechkin at 40 goals atop the NHL and looking to reach 50 for the first time in his career. Just 19, he is a real threat to win his first Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL’s top goal scorer. Ovechkin, at 32, is seeking his eighth 50-goal season and seventh goal-scoring title. Ovechkin is keeping track, too.

Sharks come up empty in bid to beat Capitals

Sun, 11 Mar 2018 00:32:14 UT

Offside or not offside. That is the question. Washington capitalized on a second-period tiebreaking goal that looked all the world as if it should be challenged, but the Sharks let it go and might have regretted that fact after losing 2-0 at SAP Center on Saturday. Capitals back-up goalie Philipp Grubauer pitched a 24-save shutout, Lars Eller added an empty-net goal and the Sharks were left only to wonder if they shouldn’t have acted more aggressively on a Nicklas Backstrom goal at 18:32 of the middle period. “I didn’t realize it was that close but they (the coaches) make that decision,” Sharks captain Joe Pavelski said. “The offside is tight. You can grab a penalty the other way, too.
