SAN JOSE Washington Capitals T-Shirts Authentic , Calif. (AP) —the San Jose Sharks managed to find a way to pull out a win that moved them closer to Calgary in the race for first place.Tomas Hertl scored his career-high 30th goal of the season, Martin Jones made 37 saves and the Sharks extended their two-decade home dominance over the Montreal Canadiens with a 5-2 victory Thursday night.“I think we gutted out a win tonight,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “I think we’re dealing with a little bit of flu going through the team and a little short-handed. I thought our goalie was our best player tonight, which gave us a chance, and I thought our third period, when we had to have a big period, we got our best period of the game. We did enough to win an important game.”Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns both missed morning skate with the illness and several other players have flu symptoms, leaving the Sharks a step slow for much of the night against the Canadiens.But a couple of fortunate bounces and big saves by Jones were enough to give San Jose its 12th straight home win over Montreal since last losing on Nov. 23, 1999.“You could just tell the lungs weren’t with the guys,” said Joe Thornton, who scored the winner on a pass that deflected off a Montreal player’s stick. “Gutsy effort by a lot of guys tonight.”Marcus Sorensen and Timo Meier each scored for the third game in a row, and Gustav Nyquist added an empty-netter for his first goal since joining the Sharks. San Jose pulled within one point of Calgary in the race for first place in the Pacific Division and has a game in hand.Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Shaw scored for the Canadiens, who remained two points ahead of Columbus in the race for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Antti Niemi made 20 saves.“This place isn’t an easy place for us to win,” Lehkonen said. “We had our chances to get ourselves back in the game after trailing by two goals Washington Capitals Hoodies Authentic , but we couldn’t.”The Sharks took a one-goal lead into the third and responded with their best period of the night, getting an insurance goal when Meier got a pass in front from Joonas Donskoi and knocked it into an open net. Nyquist’s empty-netter provided the capper.The teams had traded goals off odd deflections in the second period. Thornton’s centering pass to Sorensen hit off the stick of Montreal’s Phillip Danault and went into the net to put San Jose up 3-1 despite getting outshot 23-8 at that point.But the Canadiens answered later in the period when Paul Byron’s shot pinballed toward the net before hitting off Shaw and trickling past Jones to make it a one-goal game heading into the third.The Canadiens controlled the play in the opening period, outshooting San Jose 16-5, but were on the short end of the scoreboard thanks to a couple soft goals allowed by Niemi. Hertl scored on a wraparound early in the period, and Sorensen then beat Niemi to the short side midway through the period to make it 2-0.“We did a lot of little things right, but we had a couple of mistakes that allowed them to put the puck in the back of the net,” Shaw said. “I had a turnover causing that first goal. That was a little mistake that ended up costing us the game.”Montreal struck late in the first when Lehkonen’s centering pass got past Jones.NOTES: San Jose’s Brent Burns assisted on Sorensen’s goal, giving him 60 on the season. The only defensemen to record 60 assists in a season since the start of the 1996-97 season are Nicklas Lidstrom (2005-05, 2007-08) and Erik Karlsson (2015-16). … Karlsson (groin) and F Evander Kane (undisclosed) remained sidelined for a third straight game for the Sharks. … Montreal rookie F Jesperi Kotkaniemi was a healthy scratch for a second straight game.UP NEXT:Montreal: Visit Anaheim on Friday.San Jose: Host St. Louis on Saturday. NEW YORK (AP) — After a sluggish start in their first game out of the Christmas break, the New York Islanders picked up their intensity in the latter part of the second period and then steamrolled the Ottawa Senators in the third.Mathew Barzal had two goals and an assist to help the Islanders rally for a 6-3 win over the Senators on Friday night for their fifth win in six games. Josh Bailey had a goal and an assist, and Anders Lee, Johnny Boychuk and Casey Cizikas also scored for New York, which came back from a pair of two-goal deficits.“A little bit of that hangover from the break,” Lee said. “You could tell we were weak in some areas, mentally and physically. Once we engaged a little bit and figured it out Washington Capitals Hats Authentic , we really played a hard game and were able to take it over.”Thomas Greiss gave up three goals on 17 shots before he was pulled 6:11 into the second period. Robin Lehner, who began his career with Ottawa, came on and stopped all 10 shots he faced to improve to 7-0-3 against his former team.“Just a couple of missed assignments,” Barzal said of the Senators’ early goals. “Greisser has been a rock for us all year. … Lehner came in and played great.”The Islanders trailed 2-0 early in the second and 3-1 later in the middle period. New York then scored the last five goals, including four in the third.Lee started the comeback as he took advantage of a giveaway by the Senators in their own zone. Goalie Mike McKenna got the puck behind his net, passed to Ben Harpur in the left corner, but Harpur’s pass to Nick Paul went off Paul’s stick in the right circle. Lee got the puck and beat McKenna for his 14th with 2:32 to go in the middle period.Boychuk tied the score 3-3 at 2:57 of the third as he fired a slap shot from the right point. It was his second of the season, with both goals coming in his last four games.“Anytime you’re down two, try to get one before the end of the period,” Lee said. “We got that. And for Johnny to come out in the third and rifle one home really set the momentum for the rest of the game.”Barzal, who got his team-leading 25th assist earlier in the game, gave the Islanders their first lead at 4:51. Barzal made it 5-3 after a turnover by the Senators in the neutral zone, beating McKenna from the inside edge of the right circle for his seventh with 7:36 left.Urged to shoot more by coach Barry Trotz, Barzal converted on both of his shots on goal in the game.“I’m trying to look at the net a little more,” he said “I’m just trying to make the right play. If the shot’s there the shot’s there Custom Washington Capitals Jerseys , if it’s not it’s not.”Cizikas added an empty-netter with 54 seconds left for his career-high 10th.Mark Stone, Matt Duchene and Cody Ceci scored for Ottawa, which has lost six of eight (2-5-1). McKenna finished with 33 saves as the Senators fell to 4-13-1 on the road.“We scored three goals,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said. “We were solid, had control of game. We gave them two goals — they got life and momentum. … There were some giveaways and they scored two goals.”The game got chippy late with several fights, including pushing and shoving after the final buzzer.Stone got the Senators on the scoreboard late in the first period, taking advantage of a giveaway by the Islanders in their own zone, beating Greiss from the left circle for his 17th with 3:42 left. It gave Stone eight goals and 17 points in his last 15 games.Duchene scored on the power play at 2:47 of the second to make it 2-0.
