point streak and Colorado is coming off a road trip in which it earned seven of a possible eight points [url=http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-hats]Vegas Golden Knights Hats Authentic[/url] , so one team is about to cool off — even if for one night.The Lightning (5-1-1) had a record-setting 6-3 victory in Chicago on Sunday night while the Avalanche head home after one of their most successful trips. Colorado won the last three contests of the four-game Eastern Conference swing after a shootout loss against the New York Rangers.Its reward is a home matchup against Tampa Bay on Wednesday night. But the way the Avalanche (6-1-2) are playing, nothing is shaking their confidence but they’re not getting too cocky.Article continues below ...“We played some good games on the road,” coach Jared Bednar said after Monday’s 4-1 victory at Philadelphia. “Some of the ones when we were a little bit up and down, our big guys were good, our goaltending was good, our special teams were good. We are doing enough to win, and I still think we got room for improvement. I think a lot to like, a lot to build on but a lot to like, for sure.”One thing to like is the play of Colorado’s top line. Captain Gabriel Landeskog had nine points (seven goals, two assists) on the road trip, including a hat trick against New Jersey. His linemates, center Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, have each recorded at least one point in all nine games this season.“When you’re playing with two good players like Mikko and Nate, offensively we’re going to create and it’s going to take care of itself [url=http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-customized]Custom Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys[/url] ,” Landeskog said after the win over the Flyers. “We’re just trying to move and skate and talk and try to be threats out there, all three of us.”As well as the Avalanche are playing, they haven’t topped what Tampa Bay did against the Blackhawks. The Lightning had 33 shots on goal in the second period, which set an NHL record for shots in a period since the statistic became an official stat in 1997-98. Tampa Bay finished with a franchise-best 55 shots.“There are so many things you need,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper told The Tampa Bay Times. “It’s why it doesn’t happen that often. Everything has to go your way. The puck has to bounce over somebody’s stick, you have to be in the right spot. It’s really hard to do.”Winning in Colorado has not been hard for Tampa Bay of late. The Lightning have won their last three meetings in Denver and outscored the Avalanche 13-7 in that stretch, and bring the best penalty kill in the NHL into Pepsi Center. Tampa Bay didn’t give up a power-play goal until Sunday, which snapped a streak of 28 straight kills to start the season.“The PK had a (heck) of a run,” goaltender Louis Domingue, who nearly made the save with his glove, told The Tampa Bay Times on Sunday. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Another day, another big game for San Jose defenseman Erik Karlsson.Evander Kane and Joonas Donskoi each scored two goals, Karlsson had three assists again and the Sharks defeated the Edmonton Oilers 7-2 on Tuesday night.Karlsson has at least one assist in 14 consecutive appearances. He has 25 points (one goal [url=http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-chris-wagner-jersey]Chris Wagner Jersey Womens[/url] , 24 assists) during that span, and three assists in each of his last two games.“To be honest, he’s not really shocking many of us,” Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon said. “We’re lucky enough to see him every day at the practice rink. Just a special, special player.”Marcus Sorensen, Brent Burns and Joe Thornton also scored for San Jose, which has won four straight and six of seven — totaling 36 goals during that stretch. The Sharks are 11-2-2 over their last 15 games.“This is the type of team that we know we can be, and it’s up to us to do it on a consistent basis,” Kane said.Karlsson has played in 14 of San Jose’s last 16 games. The two-time Norris Trophy winner was issued a two-game suspension for hitting Los Angeles Kings forward Austin Wagner in the head on Dec. 22.Acquired from Ottawa in an offseason trade, Karlsson is the fifth defenseman in NHL history with at least one assist in 14 consecutive appearances.“He’s just a world-class player,” Sharks assistant Steve Spott said after head coach Peter DeBoer missed the game because he was ill.“He’s as good on our end as he is in the offensive zone. What a lot of people don’t see is how vocal he is on the bench and in our locker room, too. You could tell why he’s been a captain in Ottawa, and he’s brought that leadership here. You can see his game going to the next level offensively and defensively.”Alex Chiasson and Milan Lucic scored for Edmonton, which has lost eight of 10 after a 5-0-1 surge.Kane has five goals in his last four games [url=http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic-adidas-alex-galchenyuk-jersey]Alex Galchenyuk Jersey Womens[/url] , and fortuitous bounces figured in his 15th and 16th of the season.He scored the first goal of the night at 6:37 of the first period when his shot bounced off the back of defenseman Caleb Jones’ skate and past goalie Cam Talbot. Later, a pass by Burns ricocheted off Kane’s skate and into the net, giving San Jose a 4-1 lead at 6:32 of the second.“You don’t want to rely on bounces,” Oilers defenseman Adam Larsson said. “They were all over us. They made it hard for us. We have to be a lot better in certain areas.”Sorensen scored his eighth goal on a penalty shot. Aaron Dell made 20 saves for San Jose.Mikko Koskinen gave up three goals on 19 shots after replacing Talbot midway through the second period. Talbot allowed four goals and turned back 17 shots.“There were some strange goals, maybe three or four deflections. But still, when your best players are minus, it’s tough to win,” Oilers coach Ken Hitchcock said.“That’s two games in a row they’ve owned us in front of the net, in the slot, and they knocked us out of the box. That’s a damn good team. They owned us in what I call critical ice; the areas you score in. We had our chances and they got sticks on the puck or got deflections. They played better than we did in those critical zones.”NOTES: San Jose leads the season series 2-1. The Sharks have outscored Edmonton 14-6 in the last two meetings. … Donskoi has scored seven of his 13 goals in his last six games. … Oilers C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins played his 500th career game. … With an assist on Chiasson’s goal, Connor McDavid has 14 points (five goals, nine assists) over his last eight games. … The Sharks are one win shy of 1,000 in franchise history.UP NEXTOilers: Host the Florida Panthers on Thursday.Sharks: At the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday.
