Winning Play: The other Karlsson slays Sens

The San Jose Sharks were, by their own admission, drained. “Five games in eight days here. Against some good teams, some emotional wins,” noted Joe Pavelski. On top of victories over the Tampa Bay Lightning and Vegas Golden Knights, there was a pre-game ceremony celebrating Brent Burns’s 1,000th game. It was Erik Karlsson’s second game against the Ottawa Senators. They just enjoyed their dads’ trip. Old friends Chris Tierney, Mikkel Boedker and Dylan DeMelo were back in town. They coped with injuries to Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Justin Braun. “The boys in here were tired today,”...

Lightning at Sharks: Lines, gamethread, and where to watch

There’s some shuffling on the blue line due to all the injuries. After going 2-1 on the road, the San Jose Sharks are back home to open up a three-game homestand. First up is the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are currently the best team in the National Hockey League. Despite winning two of three, the Sharks' wins on the road came at a cost — they’ve seen significant injuries to the blue line. In Calgary, Radim Simek sustained a concussion after a questionable hit by Sam Bennett. Then, during their game against the Colorado Avalanche, Justin Braun injure his right knee and Marc-Edouard...

Winning Play: Karlsson, Dillon limit Kucherov

Erik Karlsson, shutdown defenseman? Going 15-0-1 since Nov. 28, there’s been no team hotter than the Tampa Bay Lightning. With 36 points in those 16 games, there’s been no player hotter than Nikita Kucherov. On the other side, the San Jose Sharks were presumably in trouble. Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Justin Braun, the defenders most likely to be tasked with shutting Kucherov down, were both out with injuries. Instead, San Jose snapped Tampa Bay’s 16-game point streak and held Kucherov without a shot. In Vlasic and Braun’s stead, the Sharks turned to Karlsson and Brenden Dillon to match...

I Watched This Game: Maple Leafs crush a tired, Pettersson-less Canucks

Teams that are ready to be legitimate playoff contenders don’t go from competitive to nearly unwatchable when they lose one player. For an example, just look at the Canucks’ opponents on Saturday night: the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs are currently second in the NHL, behind only the dominant Tampa Bay Lightning. After defeating the Canucks, they have a 27-12-2 record, and a plus-39 goal differential. They’ve compiled this record even though Auston Matthews missed a month with a shoulder injury and William Nylander held out for the first 28 games of the season to negotiate a better...

Eyes On The Prize

Recap: Close, but no cigar

The Canadiens offence came to play, but so did the Lightning’s. The second half of a back-to-back is never easy, especially after a physical contest the previous night. Tomas Tatar paced the offence on Friday, while the defence stayed solid in front of Antti Niemi against the Panthers. The Montreal Canadiens were certainly the underdogs heading into Tampa Bay to square off with the Lightning. Tampa is a different animal, however. Since returning from injury, Andrei Vasilevskiy is undefeated, and captain Steven Stamkos had 14 goals in the month of December at the start of the game....
