Hockey Today - Mar 11

Tuesday NHL Gameday

Patrick Marleau and the San Jose Sharks will be looking to get a win on the road on Tuesday when they take on the Nashville Predators. Here is your NHL Gameday.

Colorado Avalanche at Atlanta Thrashers

The Avalanche have moved back into a playoff position in the Western Conference, but they did suffer their first loss of March on Sunday - falling 3-0 to the Stars. Jose Theodore allowed three goals on 21 shots in that defeat, while Peter Forsberg (groin) and Adam Foote (hip) both sat out the game. Colorado is now 4-1-0 so far this month.

The Thrashers are just 1-5-4 over their past 10 games, which has pushed them down into 14th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Atlanta lost 3-2 to the Panthers in overtime on Saturday night, blowing a 2-0 lead and eventually falling in overtime. Ilya Kovalchuk scored his 45th goal in the losing effort, while Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves.

Boston Bruins at Ottawa Senators

Boston is just 1-2-2 in the past week, but they have managed to pick up points in eight of their last 10 games to stay in the Top 8 of the Eastern Conference standings. The Bruins fell 1-0 in a shootout to the Rangers on Sunday, with Alex Auld stopping all 35 New York shots in regulation time. Boston beat Ottawa 4-0 when they met February 26.

The Senators snapped a three-game winless streak with a 4-2 victory versus the Coyotes on Saturday night. Mike Fisher scored twice for Ottawa in that win, while Dany Heatley and Antoine Vermette had the team's other goals. Martin Gerber stopped 33 of 35 shots. The Senators trail the Habs by two points in the Northeast Division standings.

New Jersey Devils at Montreal Canadiens

New Jersey has won each of their past three games to move into first place overall in the Eastern Conference. The Devils beat the Maple Leafs (twice) and the Lightning last week, allowing a combined three goals in those three wins. Zach Parise scored twice to lead New Jersey over Toronto 2-1 on Saturday, with Martin Brodeur making 42 saves.

Montreal went 2-2-0 on a west-coast swing last week, beating the Coyotes and the Kings and losing to the Sharks and the Ducks. The Canadiens have knocked off the Devils once already this month, picking up a 2-1 win at home back on March 1. Mark Streit and Andrei Kostitsyn had the Habs goals, and Carey Price stopped 31 of 32 shots.

San Jose Sharks at Nashville Predators

San Jose knocked off Minnesota 3-2 in a shootout on Sunday night to keep themselves unbeaten in the month of March. The Sharks' hot stretch has pushed them into first place in the Pacific Division standings. Milan Michalek and Tomas Plihal scored for San Jose on Sunday night, while Evgeni Nabokov stopped 21 of the 23 shots that he faced.

The Preds are battling for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, and they missed a chance to help themselves with a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings on Sunday night. Shea Weber, Martin Erat, and Jordin Tootoo scored for Nashville in a third-period rally that fell short vs. Detroit, while Chris Mason made 29 saves that night.

Re: Hockey Today - Mar 11

Stars, Sharks and Ducks - oh my! - make for tight Pacific Division race

The Dallas Stars changed places twice in the Pacific Division standings, and ended up right where they started: in first place.

A few hours after they were leapfrogged by San Jose, the Stars ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night. The Stars have 89 points, one more than the Sharks.

``Obviously, the standings are tight,'' Dallas' Stephane Robidas said. ``We're trying not to look at them and focus on ourselves. But the last three games, we haven't played the kind of hockey we're used to, so tonight was important.''

Marty Turco made 19 saves for his 33rd career shutout and Brad Richards scored his first goal in a Dallas uniform as the Stars halted the Avalanche's season-best six-game winning streak. Robidas and Stu Barnes also scored for Dallas, and Mike Modano added two assists.

``The way we played was relentless,'' Turco said. ``We're going to need more of the same.''

That's for sure, especially with San Jose on a franchise-record nine-game winning streak after edging Minnesota 3-2 in a shootout and briefly assuming first place in the division. Anaheim is also only four points behind Dallas after a 3-1 victory over Montreal.

``There's 12 games left, and they're all important,'' San Jose's Pierre-Marc Bouchard said.

In other NHL games, it was: the New York Rangers 1, Boston 0 in a shootout; Edmonton 6, Chicago 5 in overtime; Pittsburgh 4, Washington 2; Detroit 4, Nashville 3; and Columbus 5, Tampa Bay 3.

At Dallas, Turco improved to 30-16-4 this season, giving him five straight seasons of 30 or more victories.

Richards had five assists in his first game with the Stars after being acquired from Tampa Bay in a five-player trade Feb. 26. But Richards had been without a point in his next two games until a goal and an assist Sunday after coach Dave Tippett moved him from center to right wing on a line centered by Modano.

``It's an adjustment, but it's easier playing with a guy who thinks the game like (Modano),'' Richards said.

Peter Forsberg was out for the Avs with a groin injury sustained in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dallas.

Peter Forsberg was out for the Avs with a groin injury sustained in Saturday's 3-1 win over Dallas.

At St. Paul, Minn., Patrick Marleau saved the game in overtime and scored the winner in the shootout for San Jose.

Marleau knocked Marian Gaborik's last-minute shot out of the air and out of danger to preserve the tie and set up the shootout. Joe Pavelski scored first for the Sharks and Marleau wrapped it up for San Jose after a nifty 360-degree spin move by Pierre-Marc Bouchard gave the Wild a chance.

``Obviously, we're playing well, but it's such a competitive league that you can't get too comfortable,'' Sharks goalie Evgeni Nabokov said. ``If you're going to take time off, you're going to find yourself losing two in a row and fighting for that eighth playoff spot.''

The Sharks were behind all afternoon until Brian Rolston's 26th goal in the final minute of regulation tied it at 2.

``A little bit of confidence, it goes a long way,'' San Jose coach Ron Wilson said. ``We're at a point right now where a little bump isn't going to hurt us.''

Nabokov played in his league-leading 66th game and made 21 saves.

Nabokov played in his league-leading 66th game and made 21 saves.

Chris Kunitz scored the go-ahead goal with 7:24 remaining and the Anaheim Ducks tied a franchise record by extending their home winning streak to seven games.

Samuel Pahlsson added a short-handed goal 33 seconds after Kunitz's goal for the Ducks, who were coming off consecutive shutout losses. Todd Marchant also scored and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 20 saves.

Alex Kovalev scored his 30th goal for the Canadiens.

Alex Kovalev scored his 30th goal for the Canadiens.

At New York, Nigel Dawes' shootout goal settled a brilliant goaltending duel between Henrik Lundqvist and Boston's Alex Auld.

Dawes scored in the shootout for the third time in four games and pushed the Rangers ahead of Boston by one point for sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Both teams have 13 games remaining.

Through regulation, Auld made 34 saves, while Lundqvist stopped 27 shots.

Through regulation, Auld made 34 saves, while Lundqvist stopped 27 shots.

At Chicago, rookie Andrew Cogliano redirected Robert Nilsson's cross-ice feed past Patrick Lalime at 3:01 of overtime for his second goal of the game to lift Edmonton.

Chicago's Dustin Byfuglien scored during a goalmouth scramble with 4:35 left in the third period to tie it and set up overtime.

Dustin Penner, Curtis Glencross, Nilsson and Marty Reasoner also scored in regulation for Edmonton, 6-1-0 in its last seven.

At Washington, Sidney Crosby scored two goals - one a fluke goal with 28 seconds to play - and Pittsburgh tallied twice in the final 30 seconds to move within one point of first-place New Jersey in the Atlantic Division.

In a crowd in front of the crease and the score tied at 2, Washington's Nicklas Backstrom backhanded a loose puck into his own net. The puck appeared to hit Crosby's skate along the way, giving the reigning league MVP his second goal of the game and 22nd of the season.

At Detroit, Johan Franzen scored two power-play goals for the NHL-leading Red Wings.

The Red Wings welcomed back captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who missed six games because of a knee injury. The star defenseman had two assists.
