(AP) —from Steven Stamkos sent the Tampa Bay Lightning into their extended All-Star break with another victory.Stamkos scored a pair of goals in the third period and Tampa Bay beat San Jose 6-3 Saturday night.NHL points leader Nikita Kucherov added a pair of assists.Victor Hedman finished with a goal and two points.Alex Killorn, Mathieu Joseph and Yanni Gourde also scored for Tampa Bay, which is 6-2 since the Sharks ended the Lightning’s 16-game streak of consecutive games with a point on Jan. 5.Andrei Vasilevskiy made 36 saves and recorded his 20th victory of the season.Evander Kane had two goals, and Marcus Sorenson also scored for the Sharks, who dropped their second consecutive game since winning seven in a row.Martin Jones stopped 20 shots and had his personal eight-game winning streak halted.“I didn’t think the score was super indicative of how the game went,” said Kane David Perron Jersey Womens , who has four goals in two games against Tampa Bay this season. “I thought we carried the play to be honest for most of the game. But every mistake we made or when we took penalties, they capitalized on those opportunities.”San Jose played without All-Star defenseman Erik Karlsson, who was a late scratch despite participating in warmups.“He’s been dealing with something for a little while here and he felt that he was going to be able to play through and just couldn’t,” Sharks’ coach Peter DeBoer said. “We’ll see how he feels (Sunday). I don’t have a full report on what is it. We’re not going to risk anything with him.”DeBoer indicated shutting down Karlsson for the final two games before the All-Star break is an option they will consider.The Lightning pulled away in the third on a pair of goals from Stamkos. He took a pass from Kucherov and scored on a wrist shot high to the stick side at 5:08, and added a power-play goal with a one-timer off a pass from Hedman at 14:15 for his 26th goal of the season. Stamkos reached the 25-goal mark for the ninth time in his career.“It’s been a lot of fun contributing to the team with the season we’ve been having so far as a team,” Stamkos said. “I got off to a little bit of a slow start Jimmy Hayes Jersey Womens , but I feel in rounding out my game, I’ve found myself putting myself into better positions to create offense and score some more goals.”Kucherov’s two assists gave him a league-leading 56 on the season. He has 78 points overall.Joseph opened the scoring for the Lightning with his 12th of the season, taking a rebound of a shot by Anthony Cirelli and netting a backhand at 3:32. Killorn made it 2-0 on another rebound at 17:51.Kane cut the lead in half with a power-play goal with 20.1 seconds left in the first period.San Jose tied the game on the opening shift of the second period as Kane pounced on his own rebound off the end boards 58 seconds in.But Gourde answered at 7:29, while Hedman scored a power-play goal at 12:01 to regain the two-goal edge.“You have the 2-0 lead and give it up, that’s tough,” Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. “But I thought we settled down (after the tying goal) and (Gourde) gets a big one to give us the lead. I liked the way we weathered the emotions of ‘we coughed up the lead now we need to go get it back.’ It showed a little maturity.”NOTES: Lightning RW Yanni Gourde scored his first goal since Dec. 29. . Sharks’ D Marc-Edouard Vlasic missed his ninth consecutive game with a wrist injury. . Tampa Bay played its final game before going into its bye week. . Marcus Sorensen is the eighth San Jose player to reach 10 goals on the season. .

The 2016 Vezina Trophy winner was in late-season form to help the Capitals kill off three of four Philadelphia power plays and avoid what would have been their first three-game losing streak since January.“That’s a story line that we’re privileged to have sometimes is that when we’re not at our best, we’ve got one of the best if not the best in the league back there making up for some of our mistakes,” said winger Tom Wilson, who scored his 22nd goal of the season. “That’s what a goalie’s for. He’s the last line of defense. We’re lucky to have him.”Travis Boyd and Jakub Vrana also scored for the Capitals, who guaranteed themselves remaining in first place in the Metropolitan Division on Monday when they’re scheduled to visit President Donald Trump at the White House. Holtby is one of two players who have said they will not attend.Washington lacked some intensity the past two games after a showdown with the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday. The Flyers took the play to them at times despite being on the second half of a back-to-back and having their playoff chances reduced to almost none in recent days.Jakub Voracek scored a power-play goal and Brian Elliott made 27 saves for Philadelphia Jack Johnson Jersey Womens , which made a run from near the bottom of the league before running out of gas.“We battled hard to get back in the standings and give ourselves a chance to make the playoffs,” Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. “It’s going to be real tough to get in. Two weeks ago, I think we had confidence in our group. We liked the way we were playing, and last two weeks it hasn’t gone our way.”Washington is trying to avoid an ill-timed slump after losing top-four defenseman Michal Kempny for an indefinite period of time with a lower-body injury. With Kempny out, Capitals coach Todd Reirden mixed up his defensive pairings against the Flyers, moving All-Star John Carlson to his off side to play with fellow righty Nick Jensen.“I think everyone knows how skilled he is and his capabilities out there Brett Howden Jersey Womens , so it’s not surprising that he can play his off side,” Jensen said of Carlson. “It doesn’t matter who I’m out there with. I think all the D are really great and easy to play with.”NOTES: The Capitals swept the season series against the Flyers for just the second time in franchise history. … The start of the game was delayed several minutes as officials sorted out a lineup discrepancy. Philadelphia initially had Justin Bailey listed as a scratch, but he was in the lineup in place of Phil Varone. … Capitals C Evgeny Kuznetsov played after missing Saturday’s practice with an illness and LW Carl Hagelin returned after missing Friday’s game against Minnesota with an illness. … The sickness going around the team coupled with Kempny’s injury led the Capitals to call up D Tyler Lewington as an extra body. … Captain Alex Ovechkin remained stuck on 48 goals as he looks for his eighth career 50-goal season.UP NEXTFlyers: Host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.Capitals: Host the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday in the first half of a home-and-home series.
