TAMPA Youth Derek Stepan Jersey , Fla. (AP) Nikita Kucherov helped the Tampa Bay Lightning quickly bounce back from a rare shutout loss.Kucherov scored twice to lead the Lightning to a 3-1 victory against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday. Tampa Bay extended its lead to four points over Boston for the top overall spot in the Eastern Conference less than 24 hours after a shutout loss at home to the Bruins.”We weren’t sitting in here pouting,” said Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, who finished with two assists. ”We thought we had a decent effort (against Boston) and we knew we wanted to improve on it.”Kucherov’s fourth multi-goal game of the season extended his lead to four points in the race for the Art Ross Trophy over Edmonton’s Connor McDavid, who was held off the scoresheet. McDavid scored four goals against Tampa Bay earlier this season.”We tried to stay on top of him, have a guy back on him, not give him too much room,” said Tampa Bay center Brayden Point, who drew the defensive assignment against McDavid. ”In the first period he had a pretty good chance kind of out of nothing just by skating around us. After that we did a pretty good job of just staying on top of him.”Victor Hedman also scored for the Lightning and Stamkos added two assists.Tampa Bay’s penalty kill was a big area of improvement as Edmonton came up empty on five power-play chances, including 28 seconds of a two-man advantage with 6:35 left in the third period. Despite 14 shots in total on the power play Womens Jason Demers Jersey , nine during three successive chances in the third, the Oilers failed to convert with the man advantage.”We talk a lot about the chances, the shots, the looks we had but it’s still got to get a goal,” Edmonton head coach Todd McLellan said. ”That’s been the tale of the tape on the power play. We had (14) shots on goal and a number of missed attempts or opportunities.”Ty Rattie scored for Edmonton and Al Montoya finished with 37 saves.Louis Domingue, making his eighth start with Tampa Bay since being acquired from Arizona, finished with 29 saves and recovered from allowing a fluke goal 14 seconds in to the game after he fumbled the puck behind the net that Rattie collected and banked off the Lighting goaltender.”There are days when you give up a goal like that and it’s going to be harder,” Domingue said. ”But I washed it away right away. It was one of those things, the guys are coming in tapping your pads. It was just a bad break. You can’t do anything about it.”Hedman pulled Tampa Bay even at 15:12 of the first period. Kucherov put the Lightning in front on the power play 2:24 in to the game and provided the insurance goals 11:34 in to the third.NOTES: Lightning RW Ryan Callahan appeared in his 700th career game Paul Thompson Jersey Womens , 250th with Tampa Bay.

(AP) The San Jose Sharks acquired forward Evander Kane from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday in a move to upgrade their depleted forward group.The Sharks dealt conditional first and fourth-round picks in 2019 and prospect Danny O’Regan to the Sabres to add a high-scoring winger just before the trade deadline.San Jose never replaced forward Patrick Marleau after he left as a free agent last July for Toronto, waiting for the right moment to add a top-six forward.With center Joe Thornton sidelined with a knee injury and the Sharks fighting for a playoff spot, general manager Doug Wilson pounced at the deadline.”We certainly really like his game, like his ingredients and everything,” Wilson said. ”We get to get him in here, let’s get to know each other and go from there.”He is in the final season of a $31.5 million, six-year contract and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Sharks plan to wait until after the season to discuss a long-term deal.If Kane doesn’t sign with San Jose this summer Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , the first-round pick in 2019 becomes a second-rounder, unless the Sharks win the Stanley Cup. San Jose also has the option of keeping the fourth-round pick in 2019 and trading a 2020 third-rounder instead.”It was a difficult market for rentals,” Sabres general manager Jason Botterill said. ”I think the younger players in the league certainly got a good reward, players with term certainly got a good reward.”But it was a scenario where we had a lot of conversations out there and certainly a lot of interest, but I think you saw with the rental market for rental players it was more of a difficult market than previous years.”The Sharks began the day in second place in the Pacific Division, one point ahead of Anaheim and two in front of Calgary. They rank 16th in the league in scoring with 178 goals and had just four goals in losing the final three games on a recent road trip that ended with a 3-2 overtime loss in Minnesota.San Jose has no power-play goals in its past nine games, failing on all 20 opportunities.Kane has 20 goals and 20 assists in 61 games for the Sabres, but has scored just five goals in his past 26 contests. The nine-year veteran has 177 goals and 163 assists in 557 games but has never made the postseason.”This is a great opportunity,” he said. ”Excitement probably doesn’t do it enough justice too how I feel. I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to possibly play in the playoffs and add as much as I can to that group and help get us in there and hopefully go on a long run.”Kane’s departure from Buffalo was inevitable given his status as an upcoming free agent this summer. The Sabres are in rebuilding mode in Botterill’s first year and are in last place in the Eastern Conference.Kane arrived in Buffalo as the centerpiece of a blockbuster trade under former general manager Tim Murray in February 2015 when Buffalo sent defenseman Tyler Myers , forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a first-round pick to Winnipeg in exchange for Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian and a prospect.Kane hit the 20-goal mark in each of his three seasons with the Sabres, including a team-best 28 goals in 2016-17.Though Kane has produced on the ice when healthy and been active in working with Buffalo-area charitable groups, he has been questioned for his immaturity off the ice.Kane has had two legal run-ins, including being arrested for grabbing three women by the hair and neck during an altercation at a Buffalo bar in June 2016. The charges were eventually dismissed on condition Kane stayed out of trouble as part of a plea agreement in which a prosecutor described the player’s behavior as ”arrogant, boorish and surly, but not criminal.”Earlier that year, the Sabres suspended Kane for one game for missing practice a day after pictures surfaced on social media of the player celebrating in Toronto after attending the NBA All-Star Game.”We’re not talking about last week or last month. We’re talking about a number of years ago ,” Kane said. ”I’ve grown up a lot since then and I’ve moved on from it and I think I’ve shown that over the course of the last two or three years. It’s something I’ve put behind me.”O’Regan has no goals and four assists in 19 games this season with San Jose. He was a linemate at Boston University with Sabres star Jack Eichel and forward Evan Rodrigues.—AP Hockey Writer John Wawrow and freelancer Mark Ludwiczak in Buffalo, New York, contributed to this report—
