Stamkos needs one goal to reach 350 for his career.
BUFFALO Womens Sven Andrighetto Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Perfect it wasn’t. The Buffalo Sabres still made it to 10.After squandering a 2-0 lead in the final 8½ minutes of the third period, Jeff Skinner scored 1:41 into overtime to seal a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.“Well, you can count the gray hairs on the back of my head,” coach Phil Housley said with a chuckle. “But the guys dug in.”Buffalo matched its longest winning streak in franchise history, and is enjoying the NHL’s best run since the Columbus Blue Jackets won 16 in a row from Nov. 29, 2016, to Jan. 3, 2017.Very few of the Sabres’ wins have come easily since their last loss on Nov. 4.Nine of the 10 games have been decided by one goal, and this marked the seventh one decided after regulation — and third in a row.“When it’s a tight game, we feel confident. If we’re down we don’t panic,” said defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen, who opened the scoring with a deke around Brent Burns. “We believe.”Skinner sealed the victory with his team-leading 19th goal Tyson Barrie Jersey , and fifth in five games.The play began when Sharks goalie Martin Jones poked the puck away from Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, who was driving to the net from the right circle. Skinner followed by beating Evander Kane to the loose puck, faked going to his forehand and backhanded a shot behind Jones.“I lost sight of it, but Ras made a great play, made their goalie commit,” Skinner said. “I just kind of walked into one that was in the slot.”Nathan Beaulieu also scored for Buffalo. Carter Hutton stopped the first 32 shots he faced and 36 overall to extend his personal-best winning streak to eight, during which he’s allowed just 15 goals.Joe Pavelski scored twice for the Sharks, while Jones stopped 28 shots and had little chance on any of the three goals.The Sharks, coming off a 6-0 loss at Vegas on Saturday, earned a point to move into a tie with idle Calgary for the Pacific Division lead.“We got shut out the other night, but all in all that game wasn’t us. Tonight was better,” Pavelski said.It’s been a night-and-day season for the Sabres Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , who suddenly find themselves atop NHL’s overall standings, one point ahead of Tampa Bay and Nashville, after both teams lost on Tuesday.By improving to 17-6-2, the Sabres are eight wins short of matching last season’s total, when they became the NHL’s first team to finish 31st in the standings following the addition of the expansion Golden Knights. Buffalo has also won six straight at home to mark its best streak since a 7-0 run from Nov. 28 to Dec. 15, 2014.“Obviously, it was really emotional last year being so bad,” Beaulieu said. “I think everyone took it personally this offseason and it’s showing.”The fans became so caught up in the excitement with Buffalo up 2-0 in the third period that they began counting to nine and then chanting: “We want 10!”Buffalo has won 10 straight twice before, more recently by going 10-0 to open the 2006-07 season.The Sabres can even poke fun at themselves, with much of it directed at Ristolainen’s goal celebration in which he stomped his feet and twirled his stick as if it were a lasso.“It was embarrassing. It was awful. He ruined a beautiful goal,” Beaulieu said. “We’ll have to work on it. But if he keeps finding the back of the net, it’s fine by me.”NOTES: After playing at Toronto on Wednesday Artemi Panarin Jersey , Sharks D Erik Karlsson will make his first return to Ottawa on Saturday since the Senators traded their former captain and two-time Norris Trophy winner to San Jose in September. … Kane received mostly a warm welcome upon being introduced early in the first period in his first game in Buffalo since the Sabres traded him to San Jose in February. … Sabres LW Conor Sheary missed his first game with an undisclosed injury, a day after leaving practice early.UP NEXTSharks: Continue their five-game trip at Toronto on Wednesday night.Sabres: Open a three-game trip at Tampa Bay on Thursday night. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Andrei Vasilevskiy has a knack for shutouts — and then backing them up.Vasilevskiy followed his first shutout of the season by stopping 29 of 31 shots, J.T. Miller scored his third goal of the season and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 on Friday.The 24-year-old Russian goaltender, who blanked Colorado on Wednesday, went 6-1-1 last season in games following a shutout.“He’s just a good young goaltender. He was in a zone again tonight, you could see he was just tracking pucks,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “Our guys did a good job of letting him see pucks. … If he can see them, he’s usually gonna stop them. He was nominated for the Vezina (Trophy) last year, and that wasn’t by fluke. When we have our breakdowns, he’s been a rock for us. Give Vegas credit, they made a big push, but our goalie was there when we needed him and it’s a big win in a tough spot on the road.”Tyler Johnson and Brayden Point also scored for the Lightning Cam Atkinson Jersey Kids , who have not lost in regulation since their second game of the season, going 6-0-1 over that stretch.Shea Theodore and William Karlsson scored for Vegas, while Marc-Andre Fleury made 20 saves.Ten games into their inaugural season, the Golden Knights were 8-2-0. They didn’t lose their fifth game until Nov. 7. Now, the defending Western Conference champions are 4-5-1 and sixth in the Pacific Division.“Every year is a new year, so what you did the year before means absolutely nothing,” Tampa Bay center Steven Stamkos said. “I’m sure if you ask them they’d say the same thing. Every year you have to go out and prove yourself as an individual, and you have to prove yourself as a team. They’re a still a good team over there. You’re not going to start the year with a great record every time. It’s how you grow as a team. They still got the pieces to be an elite team in this league.”One piece that needs to improve for the Golden Knights is the power play. Though it notched a power play goal on Friday, Vegas still has the league’s worst conversion rate with a man advantage, now 3 for 32. Tampa Bay owns the league’s best penalty kill (35 of 37).Johnson put the Lightning on the board early in the first period when he spotted a rebound in front of the net and chipped a shot past Fleury. Ryan Carpenter used the boards to slide a perfect pass to Theodore, who blasted a one-timer through traffic from the blue line and past Vasilevskiy to tie game a couple of minutes later. Later in the first, Stamkos delivered a pass into the slot for Point , who tapped the puck past Fleury.Miller extended the lead to 3-1 early in the second. He was positioned perfectly in front of net when the puck deflected off him and past Fleury for a power-play goal.Vegas outshot the Lightning 13-1 in the third period but came up empty after Karlsson ripped a wrist shot past Vasilevskiy on the glove side for a power-play goal with 18:13 left.“I think there were some chances,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We’ve just got to keep executing and work at it.”Tampa Bay blocked 27 shots, including 17 in the third period.“They had a lot of opportunities and they come at you with a lot of speed. It’s tough to contain,” Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “I think our best player, for sure, in the third period was (Vasilevskiy). We had to block some shots. We gotta continue to play with a little more assertiveness in the third, especially with the lead.”NOTES: Vegas’ Max Pacioretty exited the game in the first period and did not return. … Theodore’s goal marked Vegas’ first from a defenseman this season. … Vasilevskiy came into the game having allowed just two goals in first periods this season; his .966 first-period save percentage was tops in the NHL. … Stamkos needs one goal to reach 350 for his career. … Miller will reach the 200-point plateau with his next point. … Tampa Bay’s Victor Hedman left in the first period with an undisclosed injury, and Cooper said “there’s a good chance he’s not playing tomorrow” in Arizona. … The Lightning have scored on the power play in four straight games and six of their last seven.UP NEXTLightning: Visit Arizona on Saturday.Golden Knights: Host Ottawa on Sunday.
