Arizona has lost its No. 1 Antworten

GLENDALE Authentic Justin Bailey Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Arizona has lost its No. 1 goalie for the season and several regulars to significant injuries. But the Coyotes have not lost their fight.Christian Fischer had a goal and an assist, Richard Panik scored Arizona’s 12th short-handed goal of the season and the Coyotes snapped San Jose’s seven-game winning streak Wednesday night with a 6-3 victory over the Sharks.The Coyotes have won four of five and moved within four points of the final playoff spot in a tight Western Conference as they prepare to face another perennial postseason contender in Pittsburgh on Friday.“We realize what position we are in,” defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson said. “You look at the standings right now. It’s wide open.“We’re right there. I don’t know how, to be honest with you. A lot of injuries. We are just finding ways to get points. That’s what we have to do now. We’re playing hard, playing the right way.”Ekman-Larsson, Lawson Crouse, Alex Galchenyuk and Josh Archibald also scored for the Coyotes, the last two coming after the Sharks pulled goalie Aaron Dell in the final two minutes.It was Ekman-Larsson’s 108th career goal, tying Teppo Numminen for the franchise record among defensemen.Darcy Kuemper made 26 saves for Arizona, extending his winning streak to four games. Kuemper became the regular when Antti Raanta was lost for the season with a lower-body injury.Kevin Labanc had a goal and two assists, Evander Kane got his 17th goal and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who were playing the second of back-to-back games after beating Pittsburgh at home Tuesday.“It’s all hands on deck with that team,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “They’re a Cup favorite Kyle Okposo Jersey , so it was nice to win that game.“The guys have done a nice job of having a day-to-day attitude.

Archibald scored moments later.Dell made 36 saves while starting in place of Martin Jones, who tied a career best with his eighth consecutive victory in the 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday.The Sharks dropped to 16-4-2 in their last 22 games.“We were uncharacteristically a little sloppy, a little soft,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “We knew we had to get our emotional level back engaged after the game last night, and we didn’t do it quickly enough or for long enough.”The Coyotes killed off three of four penalties and have given up an NHL-low 16 power-play goals in 137 chances, the best percentage in the league.NOTES: Sharks forward Marcus Sorensen played in his 100th NHL game. He has set career highs with eight goals and 15 points this season. … Ekman-Larsson (2011) and Crouse (2016) scored their first career goals against the Sharks. … Clayton Keller had an assist for Arizona and has 99 points in 131 games, poised to pass Max Domi as the quickest in franchise history to 100 points.

(AP) — The decision to add Erik Karlsson to an already formidable San Jose Sharks lineup during the offseason looked like a questionable move when the two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman got off to a humdrum start.With the 28-year-old starting to hit his stride, the deal now seems to be paying off.Karlsson had a goal and two assists, Joe Thornton surpassed a big milestone for the second time this month, and the Sharks beat the slumping Vancouver Canucks 4-0 on Friday night.Thornton had two assists, moving him past Mario Lemieux for 11th place on the NHL list.

He had just seven assists through his first 18 games.“It’s going to get better and better,” Karlsson said. “We’re going to start figuring things out out there and get to know each other a little bit more. It’s going to take some time. It’s a work in progress and it’s a long year. There’s been no panic in anyone, and especially not in me.”The Sharks took the early lead on Logan Couture’s eighth goal midway through the first period.Thornton passed Lemieux with his 1,034th assist late in the first period when Timo Meier redirected his shot with 10 seconds remaining near the end of a four-minute double-minor on Derrick Pouliot for high sticking.Thornton had another assist in the third period on Karlsson’s second goal of the season. His 1,035 assists include 750 with the Sharks.“He’s been playing at a high level for a while,” Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said of Karlsson. “He’s starting to . the puck’s starting to go in, he’s starting to get some luck. The guys he’s giving it to are starting to stick it in the net at the right time. Really Sam Reinhart Jersey , that’s all that changed. I thought he struggled the first five, seven games, and I think since then he’s gotten pretty good.”San Jose sent the Canucks to their eighth straight loss. Vancouver has been outscored 34-16 over that stretch.“Obviously it’s tough,” Canucks defenseman Christopher Tenev said. “It’s eight in a row now and it’s something no one in here envisioned that would happen.”Vancouver had three power plays.The Sharks scored three goals on six power playsSan Jose has given up just two power-play goals in its last 19 games. The Sharks have killed off 48 of 50 penalties (96 percent) over that stretch.“You’ve got to give them credit,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. “They did a real good job killing penalties. They’re good at it. They’ve got a big strong team, a veteran team. They’re smart. I’ve said that before about penalty killing, it’s a learned art and they’re good at it.”The Sharks broke the game open midway through the third period on Melker Karlsson’s first goal of the season.Sharks goalie Aaron Dell had 19 saves.Canucks goalie Anders Nilsson turned back 20 shots.The Canucks managed just three shots in the third period.NOTES: The Sharks are 10-0-1 in their last 11 games against Vancouver with six straight wins at San Jose. .
