Logan Couture scores twice as Sharks top Canadiens

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:40:55 UT

Logan Couture scored twice as the Sharks extended their dominance of Montreal with a 5-2 victory on Tuesday night at SAP Center. Joe Pavelski and Tomas Hertl also scored for San Jose, which has won its past 11 home games against the Canadiens, a streak that dates to Nov. 23, 1999. On a power play late in the third period, rookie Tim Heed took a shot off a face-off that bounced free in front of the net. Pavelski couldn’t get his stick on it but managed to kick it across the net for Couture, who found a huge opening. “That was pretty special,” Couture said. “I don’t know if he knew I was there but he kept his balance and kicked it over.



Penguins rally, then top Rangers in OT

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:38:00 UT

The Penguins’ Sidney Crosby scored the tying goal with less than a minute remaining in regulation and Evgeni Malkin put in the winner 58 seconds into overtime to complete a four-point night as Pittsburgh beat the Rangers 5-4 in New York on Tuesday. Patric Hornqvist, Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin also scored for the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions, who handed New York (1-5-1) its fourth straight loss. “We kind of had some ups and downs in the game,” Crosby said. “It’s a good test when they happen and we responded the right way.



Nikita Kucherov stays hot as Lightning top Red Wings

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 05:24:17 UT

Tampa Bay wing Nikita Kucherov scored his second goal of the game 1:47 into the third period to lift the visiting Lightning to a 3-2 win over the Red Wings on Monday night. Tyler Johnson also scored for the Lightning, who improved to 5-1 with their fourth win a row. Justin Abdelkader and Mike Green scored in the second period to help Detroit erase a 2-0 deficit. Kucherov broke the tie with his seventh goal as he reached out with one hand on his stick and barely got a piece of a loose puck, deflecting it past goalie Jimmy Howard. Kucherov had one goal in each of Tampa Bay’s first five games. He’s now second in the league in goals, two behind Washington’s Alex Ovechkin.



Sabres give Housley first win as NHL coach

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 05:48:45 UT

Phil Housley finally got win No. 1 with the Sabres on Sunday in Anaheim. Chad Johnson made 25 saves, Benoit Pouliot scored the go-ahead goal in the last minute of the second period and Buffalo beat the Ducks 3-1 for Housley’s first victory as an NHL coach. “It feels great, obviously,” Housley said, “but I have to tip my hat to the guys in that locker room.” Justin Bailey and Johan Larsson also scored for Buffalo, which had lost five straight to open Housley’s first season. “We haven’t been playing our best hockey,” defenseman Jake McCabe said. “He’s been patient with us. ... Hopefully, it’s the first (win) of many.



Flyers trounce Capitals 8-2 in home opener

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 06:16:04 UT

Claude Giroux, Scott Laughton and Sean Couturier each scored two goals to lead Philadelphia to an 8-2 victory over the Capitals on Saturday night. Wayne Simmonds and Valtteri Filppula also scored for the Flyers in their home opener. Brian Elliott rebounded from a six-goal outing against Nashville to stop 21 shots and win for the third time this season. “It was good to have a couple of days in between to put it behind us,” Giroux said. Washington’s Alex Ovechkin, the NHL’s leading scorer, failed to record a goal or assist for just the second time in six games. The Flyers scored two goals in the first period and three in both the second and third.



Thomas Greiss stands tall as Islanders top Sharks

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 06:07:40 UT

A five-game homestand to open the season offered the Sharks a great opportunity to start strong. Four games in, the home run has been more like a strikeout. Though the Sharks scored first, the lead didn’t last as the New York Islanders posted a 3-1 victory at SAP Center on Saturday night. To make matters worse, it was former Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss who thrived for the Isles, stopping 40 shots as New York dropped San Jose to 1-3. Brock Nelson scored a tie-breaking goal in the second period as the Islanders improved to 1-1 on their three-game, five-day West Coast trip.



Sharks top Buffalo Sabres for 1st win of season

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 06:28:57 UT

It turns out a little hard practice was the right recipe for victory. And it didn’t hurt that the Sharks were playing a winless team. Timo Meier, Chris Tierney and Tomas Hertl each scored for the first time this season and goalie Martin Jones made 23 saves as San Jose picked up its first win, 3-2, and dropped the Buffalo Sabres to 0-3-1. The Sharks, who lost their first two games before going idle for four nights, were put through their paces in practice Monday through Wednesday before hitting the ice with a number of lineup changes and a more determined attitude Thursday night at SAP Center. “I’m for sure happy for two points because it was big for us,” Hertl said.



Flames top Kings on Sean Monahan’s OT goal

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 06:10:20 UT

Sean Monahan scored 1:02 into overtime as visiting Calgary rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night in Flames wing Jaromir Jagr’s season debut. Matthew Tkachuk scored two goals, tying the game with 9:01 left in the third period for Calgary. Mike Smith’s scoreless streak ended just shy of 140 minutes, but the Flames’ goalie made 42 saves. Dustin Brown scored tying and go-ahead goals on artful deflections early in the third period for the Kings, who lost for the first time under new coach John Stevens. Captain Anze Kopitar also scored, and Jonathan Quick made 33 saves.



Somber scene before Vegas’ home opener

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 05:42:45 UT

Fans arrived on the Las Vegas Strip for an NHL opener Tuesday, but nobody’s mind was entirely on hockey during what should have been a celebratory night and a milestone for Las Vegas. The Golden Knights’ home opener against the Arizona Coyotes — which the Knights won 5-2 behind James Neal’s two goals — originally was planned as a glamorous, Vegas-style debut featuring a light show and a pregame extravaganza. But after the shooting nine days earlier that resulted in 58 concert-goers being killed, the team modified its plans and dedicated a quieter evening to the victims, the first responders and the survivors.



Avalanche cap trip with win in Boston

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 05:43:53 UT

The Colorado Avalanche are heading into their home opener feeling pretty good. Another win in Boston certainly helped. Semyon Varlamov stopped 29 shots, Nail Yakupov scored two goals and the Avalanche continued their recent success in Boston with a 4-0 win over the Bruins on Monday. Sven Andrighetto and J.T. Compher scored first-period goals for the Avalanche, who have a 12-game points streak, including 11 wins, in Boston since March 30, 1998. Colorado completed its season-opening, three-game trip at 2-1. “I think we’re fortunate to be 2-1,” Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said.



Sharks crushed by Kings, 0-2 for first time since 2005-06

Sun, 8 Oct 2017 06:09:56 UT

The Sharks didn’t figure to be looking up at the expansion Golden Knights this season, but after two games that’s exactly the case. While Vegas has gone on the road to win the first two games in franchise history, the Sharks have started by losing their first two for the first time since 2005-06. Anze Kopitar scored two goals as the Los Angeles Kings handed the sloppy Sharks a 4-1 loss Saturday night in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,562 at SAP Center. “That was just horrible,” Sharks forward Logan Couture said. “You can’t make excuses because that was a very, very poor effort from the first minutes to the 60th minute, from the power play to the penalty kill.



Sacred Heart Prep-Atherton alum Ben Burr-Kirven thriving with Washington

Fri, 6 Oct 2017 01:36:59 UT

There was talk when Ben Burr-Kirven was dominating on offense and defense at small-school Sacred Heart Prep-Atherton, that it might not translate to Pac-12 football. All along, his high school coach Pete Lavorato said, “Phooey,” that with his speed, smarts and instincts, Burr-Kirven was a natural for any level of the game. Lavorato, who played 10 seasons in the Canadian Football League and was a CFL assistant coach, has coached 24 years at the high school level. “In all my years of football, I’ve only seen a few guys do what Ben does,” he told SportsStars magazine in 2014.



Sharks drop opener as Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds has a hat trick

Thu, 5 Oct 2017 06:24:51 UT

It’s only one game. That’s what the Sharks are telling themselves after a 5-3 loss to the Flyers at SAP Center on Wednesday night. It’s just one game in which they surrendered power-play goals the first three times San Jose skated shorthanded. It’s just one game Kevn Labanc started with a bang on offense with two goals, but was guilty of three minor penalties that all turned into goals against. It’s just one game in which Martin Jones didn’t have a good opening period, and maybe should have let the defensemen play a few pucks instead of getting involved himself.



Sharks relying on resurgence from Joe Thornton

Wed, 4 Oct 2017 03:21:54 UT

On one hand, who wouldn’t want their No. 1 center to be Hall of Fame-bound while ranking 12th in assists and 22nd in points all-time? On the other, who wants their No. 1 center to be 38 years old and coming off knee surgery following a down season of offensive production? The Sharks have both in Joe Thornton. Teammates, coaches, management and Thornton himself believe he’ll start the season injury-free and rediscover his offensive prowess. Reality suggests time will tell. “A lot of guys, including myself, have to step up a little bit and score a couple of more goals this year,” Thornton said.



NHL’s West remains tight; East more balanced

Wed, 4 Oct 2017 02:53:47 UT

The Nashville Predators are proof anything is possible in the NHL playoffs. History suggests they are up against quite a challenge. Nashville made it into the last postseason as the eighth-seeded team in the Western Conference and ended up becoming the third team seeded last to reach the Stanley Cup Finals since 1994. The Predators couldn’t stop Pittsburgh from repeating, and they’re about to find out how hard it is to defend a championship in their stacked conference. The Western Conference has not had a repeat champion since the Detroit Red Wings pulled off the feat in 2008 and 2009, hosting a Stanley Cup and then losing a Game 7 against the Penguins.
