SAN JOSE Paul Thompson Jersey Womens , Calif. (AP) Marcus Sorensen and Joonas Donskoi delivered the fast start San Jose coach Peter DeBoer wanted and Martin Jones did the rest to help the Sharks tie their playoff series with Vegas at two games apiece.Sorensen and Donskoi scored in the first period and Jones made 34 saves for his sixth career postseason shutout as the Sharks bounced back from an overtime loss to beat the Golden Knights 4-0 in Game 4 on Wednesday night.”We’d been chasing the game the whole series,” DeBoer said. ”We talked about it, but it’s easier said than done. I think we’ve had chances in the last two games to get out in front, but (Marc-Andre) Fleury has I think been exceptional, especially early in games, in order to keep us off the board. It’s nice that we’ve stuck with it, and hopefully we see some cracks.”Tomas Hertl added his team-leading fifth goal of the playoffs and Joe Pavelski scored a power-play goal in the third to set up a best-of-three for a spot in the Western Conference Final.Game 5 is Friday night in Las Vegas.Fleury made 30 saves and Vegas failed to convert on all five power-play chances while losing for the second time in eight games this postseason.”They were a little more competitive than we were tonight,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. ”We didn’t play a bad game, but we didn’t play well enough to win and they did, and they really did. I think we played well enough to win all of the first three, but tonight? No.”Jones was a big reason for that Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , starting with a key save early against Reilly Smith. Jones was helped on a delayed penalty when Brent Burns cleared a puck off the goal line and when James Neal hit the post on a power play in the first period.But the San Jose goalie also delivered some big-time saves, including back-to-back stops against William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault on a Vegas power play in the final minute of the second. Jones then turned aside Smith on a power play in the third.Jones tied Evgeni Nabokov’s team record for most saves in a playoff shutout, and the Sharks have turned things around following a 7-0 loss in the opener.”I thought we probably managed the puck a little bit better for the whole game,” Jones said. ”We won battles on the boards, we got pucks out when we needed to and we got pucks in when we needed to. That was big for us tonight.”Hertl helped give Jones a cushion with his goal early in the second. Logan Couture won an offensive zone faceoff against Erik Haula, and Mikkel Boedker took the puck behind the net for a wraparound attempt. Hertl was in front and knocked in the loose puck to make it 3-0.Pavelski’s goal on the rebound of Couture’s shot sealed the game midway through the third.The Sharks made some changes from Game 3, with defenseman Joakim Ryan returning to the lineup for the first time since March 16 in place of Paul Martin, and Donskoi getting back in after missing the previous game with a lower-body injury.After an early giveaway led to a scoring chance for Vegas, Ryan fared well and stripped William Carrier of the puck to thwart a chance for the Golden Knights.San Jose then scored twice in the final five minutes of the first period. Sorensen struck first, using a pick from linemate Eric Fehr to get loose from the corner and then skate around two defenseman to beat Fleury with his fourth goal of the playoffs.The Sharks added to the lead with 5.1 seconds to go when Donskoi skated from his own zone and beat Fleury with a wrist shot from the high slot.”At the start of the game they actually had some better looks than we did. I think they came out hard and better than we did and then Marcus scored and Joonas’ goal was big as well,” Couture said. ”The 2-0 goal was a massive goal heading into the first intermission.”Vegas was never able to recover from that early deficit.”We got caught a little bit sleeping in the first period and they took advantage Robin Lehner Jersey Womens ,” Marchessault said.NOTES: Nabokov made 34 saves in playoff shutouts against Calgary in 2004 and Detroit in 2007. … Vegas had outscored the opposition 7-1 in the first period through its first seven games this postseason. … Sorensen has five goals in 14 playoff games compared to six in 51 regular-season games.— WASHINGTON — Goaltender Braden Holtby and the Washington Capitals will try to cool off Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday night at Capital One Arena.Mathews has nine goals and three assists in five games and the Maple Leafs are off to a 4-1 start.In a 5-3 win at Detroit Thursday night, Matthews scored twice on the power play for the Maple Leafs, who were 2-for-4 with the man-advantage. They’re 7-for-14 with the extra man so far this season.Article continues below ...“We have a lot of guys who can finish on this team, especially when we are on the power play,” Toronto center John Tavares told NHL.com. “When I get the puck, I’m just trying to get it to an open player. If that’s (Matthews), it is an automatic goal right now.”Tavares had a career-high four assists against Detroit — giving him 10 points — and Mitchell Marner and Morgan Rielly each had a goal and an assist. Frederik Andersen made 26 saves.Matthews has scored in five straight games and is one game shy of tying Sweeney Schriner’s 74-year-old team record for most consecutive games at the start of a season with at least one goal. He’s recorded multiple points in all five games.Defenseman Rielly has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in his first five games, the best five-game start by an NHL defenseman in modern history. The previous high was 11 points by Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins in 1973-74.“I think it’s great for all the guys that are doing some scoring right now,” Leafs coach Mike Babcock told the Toronto Sun. “In the end, though Leo Komarov Jersey Womens , it’s about winning every night and it doesn’t really matter on our team who does the scoring as long as we score enough to find a way to win. I think the guys have been real good about that.”The last player to record nine goals in the first five games of the season will also be on the ice Saturday night as Washington winger Alex Ovechkin accomplished the feat last season.Ovechkin and company didn’t manage any goals when they suffered their first regulation defeat of the season — 6-0 to the New Jersey Devils Thursday night.Playing the second of back-to-backs, the Stanley Cup champs fell behind early and the Devils poured it on late.“I think it’s going to be like that all season,” Washington’s Lars Eller told NBCSportsWashington.com of the Devils’ all-out effort. “Teams are going to want to beat the champs and show their best. They got a lot of energy going tonight and we didn’t have as much of it.”The Capitals (2-1-1) entered the game having scored a franchise-best 18 goals, the most in their history through the first three games of the season.Back-up goalie Pheonix Copley made 30 saves for the Capitals against New Jersey.“First period especially, he was really good,” Caps defenseman Matt Niskanen told NBCSportsWashington.com. “He didn’t get a very good effort in front of him. He played hard and made some big saves in the first when it was still close. The rest of us got to do better.”Washington opens a three-game homestand against the Maple Leafs, who are finishing a four-game road swing.Holtby is 8-3-1 with a 2.05 goals against average and .934 save percentage versus the Maple Leafs, while Andersen is 3-1-1 with a 2.88 GAA and .909 save percentage against Washington.
