Allowing another late goal could have been debilitating

SAN JOSE Torey Krug Jersey , Calif. (AP) —to the New York Rangers. Instead, they managed to bounce back and get a well-deserved win.Kevin Shattenkirk scored the lone goal in the shootout and Henrik Lundqvist rebounded after allowing the tying goal with 1.3 seconds left in regulation, helping the Rangers complete a season sweep of the San Jose Sharks with a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night.“There was a moment where we were down and bowed our heads a little bit,” Shattenkirk said. “Take that moment, take it in and move on. We did a good job of it. … The way we stuck with it was huge.”Chris Kreider scored two goals in the third period and Mats Zuccarello also scored for the Rangers, who followed up a 3-2 overtime win at home against the Sharks earlier this month with another victory.New York has just two wins in its other 10 games and lost a game Sunday in Los Angeles when the Kings scored with less than a minute left in regulation.“That’s a good team,” Kreider said. “It’s a good team we’ve beaten twice now, regardless if we blew the lead. That’s a good team. We played so much better than we did the past few games. There’s no reason we can’t do that consistently.”Brent Burns and Timo Meier each scored for the Sharks to extend their points streaks to a career-high nine games.The Sharks got Joe Thornton back in the lineup after missing nine games with an infection in his surgically repaired right knee, but struggled to control the game as coach Peter DeBoer spent much of the night juggling his lines.“We didn’t have the start we wanted today,” Meier said. “We were chasing them from behind. We had a lot of turnovers. We didn’t play our game. We tried to shuffle around the lines a little bit. We fought back nicely. We tied up at the end. Too bad we couldn’t get those two points.”Martin Jones made 34 saves for San Jose, but couldn’t stop Shattenkirk in the third round of the shootout.Lundqvist stopped Hertl Womens Tuukka Rask Jersey , Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski in the shootout after robbing Burns with his glove in the final second of overtime for his 31st save of the game.“I don’t know if I would have made it through the night if they scored with two seconds to go in overtime as well,” said Lundqvist, who was shaken up in the second period after a collision with teammate Cody McLeod. “It would have been tough to accept. It was just a big relief to take it to the shootout.”Kreider twice gave the Rangers the lead in the third only to have the Sharks tie it, with the last coming when Hertl got a pass in front of the net with the clocking running down and beat Lundqvist to send the game into overtime.Kreider had given New York a 3-2 lead earlier in the period after a defensive breakdown by San Jose. Zuccarello was left alone in front after an offensive zone draw and took a pass from Mike Zibanejad before feeding Kreider at the side of the net to give New York the lead.Kreider scored on a one-timer early in the period only to have Meier answer with a shot into the top corner on a two-on-one.The Sharks struck first when Burns beat Lundqvist with a big shot from the point less than four minutes into the game, becoming the first Sharks defenseman to record points in nine straight games.But the Rangers took over from there, outshooting San Jose 17-6 in the opening period and getting the equalizer when Zuccarello beat Jones from the top circle less than a minute after Burns’ goal.“Tonight was one of those tough games you are coming off the road, it’s a little bit of a trap game,” DeBoer said. “We knew that coming in. The first period we were on our heels. They were the more desperate team tonight.”NOTES: Thornton played in his 1,496th career game, passing Phil Housley for sole possession of 20th place on the all-time list. … Sharks captain Joe Pavelski played his 900th career game. … F Pavel Buchnevich was a healthy scratch for New York.UP NEXT:New York: Visit Anaheim on Thursday.San Jose: Host Columbus on Thursday. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Devan Dubnyk had a bounce-back game for the Minnesota Wild.Dubnyk stopped 26 shots to help the Wild beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 Saturday Zdeno Chara Jersey , ending a season-high five-game losing streak.Defenseman Matt Bartkowski scored in his debut with the Wild, and Charlie Coyle and Eric Fehr also scored. Zach Parise had two assists.The Wild were 0-4-1 in the last five games, with only five goals during the stretch. Dubnyk had been pulled in a 5-2 loss to Chicago on Thursday after letting in three goals on 10 shots.“I don’t really want to talk about last game,” Dubnyk said. “I felt fine in there. We won’t get into that.”Beating the Central Division-leading Jets was an opportunity to “right the ship,” he said.“You come into this building where they’re so good … and you know it’s going to be a huge task,” Dubnyk said. “Sometimes that opportunity and responsibility is kind of what you need to lift you out of it. That’s why it was such a big game for us.”Patrik Laine scored on the power play for his 24th goal of the season for Winnipeg, and his first point in five games. Connor Hellebuyck finished with 21 saves for the Central Division-leading Jets.Winnipeg has lost two straight for just the second time this season. Calgary defeated the Jets 4-1 on Thursday. Coincidentally, the earlier skid was also against Calgary and Minnesota in late November.“(The Wild) play a strong defensive game, so maybe we were trying to make cute plays through them and it wasn’t working,” Winnipeg forward Mathieu Perreault said. “But we had some chances there later in the third … just couldn’t put them in.”Minnesota led 1-0 after the first period and 2-0 after two.Called up earlier in the day, Bartkowski benefited when the Jets couldn’t clear the puck out of their own end. He took a pass from Marcus Foligno at the point and sent a straight-on shot past a screened Hellebuyck at 9:28.“Pretty awesome Xavier Ouellet Jersey Womens ,” Bartkowski said of scoring after getting brought up from Iowa of the American Hockey League. “You get the win, too, so you can’t really draw it up any better than that.”Minnesota outshot the Jets 11-6 in the opening period, which featured six Winnipeg giveaways and line shuffles by head coach Paul Maurice.Coyle made it 2-0 at 2:17 of the second. A shot by Wild forward Luke Kunin hit the stick of Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba and the puck bounced to Coyle, who sent it over Hellebuyck’s arm for his sixth.Winnipeg had the game’s first power play with 3:07 left in the second, but got only one shot at Dubnyk. Minnesota had a 10-7 advantage in shots on goal in the middle frame.The Jets had another power play early in the third and made it count with 23 seconds remaining on a holding penalty to Nino Niederreiter.After whiffing on a one-timer, Laine’s second opportunity was a rocket over Dubnyk’s blocker at 7:21.Fehr scored his fifth of the season into the empty net with 47 seconds remaining in the third.“We were just very slow tonight,” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. “It’s not something you see at all often in the other games. I haven’t seen that, I just haven’t seen that in a long time.”NOTES: Laine’s goal was his league-leading 11th on the power play this season. … Jets D Dustin Byfuglien went to the dressing room midway through the third period after appearing to hurt his leg when he and Kunin collided along the boards. … Fehr’s goal was his first point in 14 games. …UP NEXTWild: Host Pittsburgh on Monday.Jets: Visit Edmonton on Monday.
