Ducks improve defense to rally in overtime win over Bruins

BOSTON — If Corey Perry hadn’t brought the Anaheim Ducks even with the Boston Bruins with 38.5 seconds left in the third period and goaltender Frederik Andersen gone in favor of an extra skater, and if Ryan Getzlaf hadn’t set a franchise career record by scoring his seventh regular-season overtime goal to propel them to a 3-2 victory Thursday at TD Garden, the Ducks would have accepted defeat.

Caps Insider: Capitals tempted fate against New Jersey, but still ‘won a big game’

The Washington Capitals had already snatched a 3-2 overtime victory over the New Jersey Devils that Coach Barry Trotz felt they had no business winning, and now the out-of-town scoreboard at Verizon Center glowed with more gifts from across the continent. The Boston Bruins fell in overtime. So did the Pittsburgh Penguins, Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders, all in regulation. While the Capitals escaped from disaster, flipping a blown two-goal lead into an unexpected win thanks to defenseman Matt Niskanen’s long shot from the point, each team within sniffing distance lost.Read full...

Marleau scores twice as Sharks top Red Wings

Patrick Marleau scored twice and Antti Niemi made 30 saves to help the Sharks top the host Detroit Red Wings 6-4 on Thursday night to end a two-game skid. Despite the victory, the Sharks — who have eight games left — remained eight points out of playoff position in the Western Conference. The Sharks got the game’s first goal 19 seconds in after Melker Karlsson stole the puck deep in the Detroit zone and got it to Marc-Edouard Vlasic, who beat goalie Jimmy Howard with a one-timer from just inside the blue line. Matt Nieto made it a two-goal lead midway through the first period when...

Canadiens vs. Jets recap: A taste of their own medicine

On a night off for Carey Price, The Habs got a bit of a taste of what it's often like to lose against them. With an extremely tough act to follow, Dustin Tokarski has fared quite well as a relief goaltender for the Canadiens this season. Coming in for Carey Price right now has to be a pretty tough job, and it is a great credit to Tokarski that he's done as well as he has. Thursday night against the Jets however, it wasn't his night, even with the team in front of him playing one of their better games in recent memory.

Do the Penguins have a defensive problem? I don’t think so. But what we saw during Thursday’s 5-2 loss at Carolina was not encouraging. “For the last two or three weeks, we’ve been real solid defensively,” defenseman Rob Scuderi said. …

Caps Insider: Secondary scoring arrives for Capitals, in ‘lucky’ ways

The pregame scouting report broke into defenseman Karl Alzner’s mind as, for the first time all season, he chose a target, aimed and fired. He always shot blocker-side during practice — just ask Braden Holtby, he’d say later — and it just so happened that goaltending coach Mitch Korn had singled out the same spot on New Jersey’s Cory Schneider.Read full article >>
