Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

WASH­ING­TON: Sean Mon­a­han scored his sec­ond goal of the game 1:40 into over­time to give the Calgary Flames a 32 win over the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals on Fri­day night. Michael Fro­lik also scored for Calgary and Karri Ramo stopped 34 shots. Michael Latta and Jay Bea­gle had the goals for Wash­ing­ton, and Phillipp Grubauer fin­ished with 26 saves. In over­time, Mon­a­han took a pass from TJ Brodie and beat Grubauer from right in front. Wash­ing­ton coach Barry Trotz chal­lenged the goal, claim­ing that Mon­a­han was off­side, but the goal was quickly con­firmed. Mon­a­han has six goals this sea­son, in­clud­ing four in the last four games. The Flames, which lost two straight en­tered the game with the worst record in the Western Con­fer­ence.


Sergei Bo­brovsky stopped 28 shots and nar­rowly missed his 12th ca­reer shutout as Colum­bus held off Pitts­burgh. Scott Hart­nell scored his team-lead­ing eighth goal to help the Blue Jack­ets im­prove to 5-5 un­der John Tor­torella. Bran­don Saad picked up his sixth with a power-play goal in the sec­ond pe­riod that gave Colum­bus a 2-0 lead. Marc-An­dre Fleury made 26 saves for the Pen­guins but Pitts­burgh went 0 for 6 on the power play. Pa­tric Horn­qvist de­flected a shot from the point past Bo­brovsky with 52 sec­onds re­main­ing to spoil Bo­brovsky’s shutout bid. Horn­qvist ap­peared to tie it with 13 sec­onds left but the ref­er­ees waved it off af­ter rul­ing Horn­qvist in­ten­tion­ally kicked the puck into the net.


Joe Pavelski scored his ninth goal of the sea­son, Martin Jones made 26 saves and San Jose beat Detroit. Melker Karlsson and Matt Ni­eto also scored for the Sharks, who im­proved to 7-1 in Detroit since the 2010-11 sea­son. To­mas Tatar and Teemu Pulkki­nen scored for the Red Wings, and Jimmy Howard fin­ished with 11 saves. Pavel Dat­syuk made his sea­son de­but for Detroit af­ter miss­ing the first 15 games due to off-sea­son an­kle surgery. He re­ceived a stand­ing ova­tion when com­ing onto the ice for his first shift.


Frans Nielsen scored twice in the third pe­riod, backup goalie Thomas Greiss stopped 24 shots, and New York beat Ana­heim. Brock Nel­son and Cal Clut­ter­buck also had goals for the Is­lan­ders, who won two of three on a Cal­i­for­nia road trip. Nel­son, who had the Is­lan­ders’ only goal in a 2-1 loss at Los An­ge­les on Thurs­day night, has scored in con­sec­u­tive games for the first time since last Dec 2-4. Corey Perry scored for the Ducks, who were com­ing off con­sec­u­tive over­time losses at home against the Coy­otes and Oil­ers. An­ton Khu­dobin fin­ished with 25 saves.— AP
