With two games in two days Christian Folin Jersey Womens , the surging San Jose Sharks are looking for a strong finish heading into the NHL’s Christmas break.They start on Saturday afternoon with a matchup against the league-worst Los Angeles Kings at SAP Center.San Jose opened a four-game homestand with a 5-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, a blip on what’s been a pretty strong stretch of hockey in recent weeks.Article continues below ...“This might have been our best game in the last six games and it was the one we lost,” coach Peter DeBoer said. “We had a good effort. Some unfortunate bounces.” After losing a season-high four in row between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, the Sharks have won seven of nine. DeBoer told the San Jose Mercury News on Friday that the team talked about what they wanted to accomplish before the league goes on hiatus for three days.“We had a goal 10 days to two weeks ago and we talked about our last seven games heading into the break,” he said. “We’ve won four out of the five since we started talking about it, so we want to finish this off.”Following this game, San Jose (19-12-5) faces another Pacific Division opponent when the Arizona Coyotes visit on Sunday. The Sharks are 5-2-1 against division foes this season.Erik Karlsson said following the win over the Jets that San Jose expects to be among the league’s elite, but there needs to be a full-time effort in each game.“Today, we showed it in bits and pieces. … You can’t make small mistakes early in the game, it’s going to come back and cost you David Perron Jersey Womens ,” said the Sharks defenseman, who’s riding an eight-game assists streak.After putting up 98 points last season, Los Angeles (12-20-3) is at the bottom of the league and has the fewest goals scored with 78. Coming up on the halfway point, no player on the club has cracked double digits in goals. Dustin Brown has a team-high nine after scoring 28 last season, while Anze Kopitar has eight after a career-best 35 in 2017-18.The key to any sort of success this season, according to Drew Doughty, is shutting down the opposition.“The defensive style we play, that’s how we’ve got to win hockey games. That’s the bottom line. The only way this team is going to win hockey games is if we’re giving up max two goals a night,” the defenseman said after the Kings snapped a four-game winning streak with a 4-1 stunner over Winnipeg on Tuesday.That means better play from Jonathan Quick. He’s three wins shy of 300, but 0-4-1 with a 3.63 goals-against average on the road this season.Los Angeles has won four straight on the road and is 11-3-0 overall when allowing two goals or less in 2018-19.In the only previous meeting this season Jimmy Hayes Jersey Womens , Kevin Labanc scored in overtime to lift the Sharks to a 3-2 win over the Kings on Oct. 5 at Staples Center. San Jose and Los Angeles have split the last four meetings in Northern California and only one team in one game scored more than two goals.The Kings are expected to have Ilya Kovalchuk back in the lineup, according to Fox Sports West. The No. 1 overall pick in 2001 missed 10 games after ankle surgery.Kovalchuk returned to the league on a three-year deal in July, five years after leaving for the KHL. The 35-year-old winger has five goals and nine assists in 25 games this season. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes found their offense against the Philadelphia Flyers.Limited to a goal in four of their last five games and coming off a shutout loss on the weekend, the Hurricanes scratched out a 3-1 win over Philadelphia on Monday night for their second victory in six games.Lucas Wallmark, Jordan Martinook and Andrei Svechnikov scored and goalie Curtis McElhinney stopped 22 shots in the win.Goals have been scarce for Carolina, which had scored a total of seven in the previous five games.“We’ve been struggling to score and sometimes you need one to get you jump-started,” Martinook said.Jakub Voracek scored for Philadelphia, which lost for the third time in four games and fell to 3-3-1 under interim coach Scott Gordon. Carter Hart started in the nets for the Flyers, but allowed three goals on 10 shots and was replaced by Michal Neuvirth Chris Bigras Jersey Womens , who stopped all 23 shots he faced.Wallmark got it going for the Hurricanes at 10:47 in the first period. He took a long shot from the high slot that found the upper left corner of the net.Wallmark, who hadn’t scored in 10 games, said he was just trying to get the puck on net and use a screen by a Philadelphia defender on the rookie Hart.“Everyone wants to score,” said Wallmark, who has three goals this season. “When you don’t, it’s not fun. Somehow we have to keep doing all of the small things right.”Martinook turned a small hunch into a big goal. Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux won the opening faceoff of the second period, but the Carolina left wing was able to steal the puck. He got into the Philadelphia zone and beat Hart to the glove side for a 2-0 lead just 6 seconds into the period.“They’re certainly not thinking that’s going to happen,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “Nobody is. Maybe he caught them sleeping a little bit. That was a big turning point in the game.”McElhinney made the 2-0 lead stand with his toughest save of the night on a 2-on-1 chance by the Flyers. Center Scott Laughton had a clean look at 2:05 in the second period but McElhinney slid over and stopped the shot.The Hurricanes turned the rebound into a transition opportunity and Svechnikov got free to beat Hart at 2:19 for the 3-0 lead.The power play has been a season-long problem for the Flyers, who were 0 for 2 on Monday and rank last in the NHL with the man-advantage.Voracek scored Philadelphia’s only goal at 2:38 in the third period. McElhinney was up to the task the rest of the way with 10 saves in the final period.“I think we’re just trying to get something moving, obviously it has been tough to get goals Jack Johnson Jersey Womens ,” McElhinney said. “To put a few in there right away, and get on them in the second, it helped everybody’s confidence.”NOTES: Philadelphia center Jori Lehtera was a healthy scratch for the seventh straight game. Lehtera is under investigation for his involvement in a drug ring in his native Finland. According to the Finnish news service mtvuutiset.fi, Lehtera was charged on Monday with purchasing eight grams of cocaine and he faces a five-month prison sentence. “As I have maintained from the outset, these charges against me are false and I will clear my name,” Lehtera said in a statement released by the team. … Carolina captain Justin Williams played in his 1,200 game on Monday.UP NEXTFlyers: At Nashville on Tuesday.Hurricanes: At Philadelphia on Thursday.
