Meier’s two goals lift Sharks over Lightning


Timo Meier scored his second goal of the game and 30th this season 2:19 into overtime, and the San Jose Sharks rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Tuesday night.

San Jose also got goals from Erik Karlsson and Jonah Gadjovich. Kaapo Kahkonen stopped 34 shots.

Brayden Point had two goals and Ross Colton also scored for the Lightning, who lost 7-1 at Florida on Monday night. Brian Elliott made 18 saves.

Nikita Kucherov had two assists and tops the NHL with 55. The right wing tied his franchise record with a point in 16 consecutiv­e home games.

Bo Horvat scored in his home debut with New York, leading his new team to victory.

Ilya Sorokin made 31 saves in his fifth shutout this season and No. 15 for his career. Samuel Bolduc, Simon Holmstrom and Zach Parise also scored in New York’s fourth straight win, and Jean-gabriel Pageau added two assists.

The Islanders acquired Horvat in a blockbuste­r trade with Vancouver on Jan. 30. The All-star center then agreed to a $68 million, eight-year contract on Sunday.

Martin Jones had 23 saves for the Pacific Division-leading Kraken, but Seattle dropped the opener of a five-game trip to begin the second half of the season.

Ryan Mcleod and Warrn Foegele had goals 36 seconds apart early in the second and Edmonton earned its eighth win in nine games.

Foegele scored again midway through the period to give the Oilers a 3-1 lead. Ryan Nugent-hopkins restored their two-goal lead late in the third period and Evander Kane added an empty net goal. Edmonton’s Jack Campbell stopped 30 shots, including some key ones in the third to keep a one-goal lead.

Ville Husso made 22 saves for the Red Wings, who had won two of their previous three games.

Detroit’s Tyler Bertuzzi broke a scoreless tie midway through the first period and Joe Veleno scored with 9 seconds left in the second to pull the home team within a goal.
