MONDAY’S GAMES HIGHLIGHTS
No. 3 Kansas holds on, tops No. 24 TCU
Gradey Dick scored 19 points, Kevin Mccullar Jr. had 15 and thirdranked Kansas extended its winning streak to five games with a 63-58 win over No. 24 TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.
Jalen Wilson had 12 rebounds for the Jayhawks (23-5, 11-4 Big
12), which began the night tied with idle eighth-ranked Texas for the conference lead. They have won seven of eight games since a threegame losing streak that included a 23-point home loss to the Horned Frogs.
Damion Baugh missed a potential tying 3-pointer with five seconds left for TCU (18-10, 7-8).
Mike Miles Jr. had 13 points for TCU, which has lost five of its last six games — the first four of those losses when Miles was out injured.
Neither team made a field goal in the final 4:19 of the game.
Hellebuyck’s 50 saves help Jets cool Rangers
Mark Scheifele scored twice and Connor Hellebuyck made 50 saves as the Winnipeg Jets beat the surging New York Rangers 4-1.
Kyle Connor and Pierre-luc Dubois also scored for the Jets, who are 6-30 in their past nine visits to Madison Square Garden.
Hellebuyck, playing on back-toback nights after a 4-2 loss at New Jersey on Sunday, stopped all 20 shots he faced in the first period and 30 more the rest of the way to improve to 26-16-1.
Vincent Trocheck scored for the Rangers, who were 8-0-2 in their previous 10 games.
■ Islanders 4, Penguins 2: At Pittsburgh, Bo Horvat and Anders
Lee scored less than two minutes apart as New York pulled off its second late comeback over the Penguins in three days when Horvat beat Tristan Jarry to the short side with 11:26 remaining to tie it. Jarry turned it over behind the Pittsburgh net moments later, kickstarting a sequence that ended with Lee jamming it home to give the injuryravaged Islanders the lead.
The team’s playoff pursuit was dealt a devastating blow before the game when it announced center
Mat Barzal is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.
■ Sharks 4, Kraken 0: At San Jose, James Reimer stopped 26 shots for his second shutout of the season and Logan Couture, Evgeny Svechnikov, Noah Gregor and Michael Eyssimont scored for San Jose, which snapped a three-game skid.
■ Flyers 4, Flames 3: At Calgary, Wade Allison scored the gamewinner and fellow rookie Samuel Ersson made 32 saves to maintain his perfect record as Philadelphia snapped a four-game losing streak. Ersson is the eighth goaltender in NHL history to start his career 6-00. At the other end, the struggles continue for Jacob Markstrom, who made 18 stops. A finalist last season for the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goaltender, Markstrom is 15-14-7 record and has not won consecutive starts since mid-december.
■ Bruins 3, Senators 1: At Boston, David Pastrnak scored twice, moving within one goal of the NHL lead, and Linus Ullmark stopped 30 shots to lead Boston to its fourth consecutive win. Pastrnak broke a second-period tie to pass the 40goal plateau for the third time in his career, and then added another goal in the third for No. 41.
■ Panthers 4, Ducks 3, OT: At Sunrise, Fla., Carter Verhaeghe scored 1:42 into overtime to lift Florida to its sixth win in nine games. John Gibson made 51 saves for Anaheim, which lost its fifth straight.
