CALGARY Mario Lemieux Jersey , Alberta —made a huge impact upon his return to the lineup for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.The 28-year-old defenseman from Landsbro, Sweden, would like nothing more than to carry his momentum into New Year’s Eve when his Sharks (21-12-7) take on the Calgary Flames (23-12-4) in a battle of the top two teams in the Pacific Division at the Scotiabank Saddledome.“We have a tough stretch coming up here the next few games,” said Karlsson after tallying a goal and three assists to help lead the Sharks to a 7-4 road victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. “We’re going to have to play at the top of our level to be able to compete with the teams that we’re playing.Article continues below ...“Now, we’ve just got to go into Calgary and have the mentality that we’re going to win that game, too, and play to the best of our ability and clean some things up from (Saturday) and take the good things with us.”Karlsson sat out San Jose’s previous two games as a result of being suspended for an illegal check to the head of Los Angeles Kings forward Austin Wagner in the second period of a 3-2 overtime loss at home on Dec. 22.“It’s nice to be back,” said Karlsson, who has put up three goals and 27 assists in 30 games with the Sharks this season after playing his first nine NHL campaigns with the Ottawa Senators. “It’s never fun to be out of the lineup, especially for the reason that I was out for. Sometimes it’s good to watch the games from afar, too. You figure a few things out. I was excited to get back (in the lineup) and I did everything I can to stay in it.”San Jose coach Peter DeBoer was also happy to have Karlsson back on the blue line for the Sharks.“You can see his impact on the game, on our team, on the players around him Matt Murray Jersey ,” DeBoer said. “You take him for granted a little bit. When he’s out, you realize the hole there is there. Every week he’s getting more comfortable here.”Meanwhile, the Flames will be looking to bounce back following a 3-2 overtime setback at home to the surging Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, two days following a 4-1 road win over the Winnipeg Jets.“I thought we faded a little bit as the game went along, didn’t have the same jump, but we skated much better here tonight than we did in Winnipeg and I expect us to skate a lot better Monday, too,” Calgary coach Bill Peters said following the OT loss to the Canucks.Despite the loss, the Flames still sit tied atop the Western Conference standings at 50 points with the Jets (24-12-2), who have a game in hand.“We’ve played a lot of good hockey this year, but there’s a long way to go and as a group we feel like we’ve let it slip over the last few games,” Calgary captain Mark Giordano told the team website. “We’ve got to get back to details, be a lot sharper on the defensive side of things and we’ll be fine.“We’ve put ourselves in good position. Now http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-olli-maatta-jersey , we either let the pack make up ground and catch us over the next 20 or we ramp up, take off and solidify what we’ve worked for to get to this point. We’re looking to solidify — to take off.” RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Cam Ward allowed an early goal when the puck stuck in his skate. With Arizona trying to force overtime, the Carolina goalie used his glove to prevent another one.Jeff Skinner scored his second goal with 1:58 left, and the Hurricanes beat the Coyotes 6-5 on Thursday night despite giving up a weird goal with a puck lodged in Ward’s skate.”That first one was probably one of the weirdest goals I’ve ever seen,” Skinner said. ”You stick with it, though, and it paid off for us.”Skinner added an assist, and Valentin Zykov scored two goals, the second tying it at 5 with 10:14 remaining. Phil Di Giuseppe had a goal and two assists, and Jaccob Slavin had three assists.Teuvo Teravainen also scored, and Ward made 28 saves for Carolina. The Hurricanes had lost six of eight.Alex Goligoski scored twice, including arguably the most bizarre goal of the season when Ward unknowingly skated across the red line with the puck lodged in his right skate.Rookie Clayton Keller had a goal and an assist Womens Patric Hornqvist Jersey , Josh Archibald and Nick Cousins also scored and Darcy Kuemper stopped 24 shots for Arizona. Eliminated from the playoff race last week, the Coyotes won at Buffalo on Wednesday night for their second straight victory.”We scored five goals, 5-4, if we lock it down, we win the game,” coach Rick Tocchet said. ”We have to learn as a team, when you’re a little bit tired, you have to have mental toughness. You can’t just say you’re tired, and I’m going to make a stupid mistake. You’re tired, you can still be focused. … Good teams know they tired, and they can still stay in their structure, and I felt our guys gave in.”Skinner’s winner came when he backhanded his blocked shot past Kuemper after some slick passing from Di Giuseppe and Slavin. Ward preserved the lead with a slick glove save off Oliver Ekman-Larsson’s blast with about 40 seconds remaining.Goligoski’s second goal came on a power play with 10.3 seconds left in the second period and put the Coyotes up 5-4.His first goal was the one everyone will be talking about .Ward skated behind the net to play the puck midway through the first, and it somehow wedged inside his right skate. The play was not blown dead Phil Kessel Jersey , so Ward returned to the net and as he dug into his crease, the puck crossed the goal line. After a brief video review, the goal was awarded to Goligoski.”It’s bad luck for Ward there, but good for us, obviously,” Tocchet said.For the Hurricanes, that was a fitting application of Murphy’s Law to a once-promising season that has gone awry.”That’s a first – got to be a first,” coach Bill Peters said. ”It was one of those where you’re shaking your head, wondering `What else? What’s next?”’Since a victory over New Jersey on March 2, Carolina had gone into a tailspin – a slump marked by consecutive third-period collapses – to all but eliminate itself from the playoff chase. The Hurricanes entered nine points behind the Devils for the East’s final playoff spot.NOTES: Keller has points in seven straight games and is one goal shy of the team rookie record of 22 set by Peter Mueller in 2007-08. … Teravainen and C Sebastian Aho also each have points in seven straight. … Arizona D Niklas Hjalmarsson went down with an apparent leg injury late in the second. … The Hurricanes have given up at least three goals in six straight games.UP NEXTCoyotes: Continue their six-game road swing at Florida on Saturday night.Hurricanes: At Ottawa on Saturday night.—
