Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) – The San Jose Sharks continued to roll even
though workhorse goaltender Antti Niemi finally got a rest. Backup Alex
Stalock, making his first NHL start, turned away 38 Ottawa shots in San
Jose’s 5-2 win over the Senators at Canadian Tire Centre. Niemi had started
each of the Sharks’ first 11 games this season. James Sheppard and Tommy
Wingels both registered a goal and an assist for San Jose, which improved to
10-1-1 this season. Craig Anderson allowed all five goals on 29 shots for
the Senators, who have dropped four straight at home to the Sharks. They
haven’t beaten San Jose in Canada’s capital city since Dec. 19, 2002.

Final Score: Tampa Bay 4, Florida 3 (SO)

Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Steven Stamkos had a goal and an assist in
regulation and netted the winner in a shootout Sunday to give the Tampa Bay
Lightning a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers. Stamkos scored in the fourth
round of the shootout, skating down the left side and deking to his forehand
to clip the puck around Jacob Markstrom’s left pad. Valtteri Filppula also
beat the Panthers goalie in the shootout. Brad Boyes had the only
successful try for Florida despite being knocked down by Tampa goalie Anders
Lindback. Martin St. Louis and Radko Gudas had regulation goals for the
Lightning, who have won three in a row. They are 5-0 in their last five
trips to Sunrise — with four of the games going past regulation.

Final Score: Anaheim 4, Columbus 3

Columbus, OH (SportsNetwork.com) – Corey Perry’s go-ahead goal with 2:25
remaining helped the Anaheim Ducks take a 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue
Jackets on Sunday. Ryan Getzlaf, Emersom Etem, and Peter Holland also tallied
for Anaheim, which has won two straight on the heels of a brief two-game
slide. Frederik Anderson made 18 saves in the triumph. Arten Anisimov netted
a pair of goals, while Blake Comeau also lit the lamp for the Blue Jackets,
who had their three-game winning streak snapped. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28
shots in defeat.
