SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Joe Pavelski scored two goals to move into a tie for the second most in the NHL this season and the San Jose Sharks beat the Calgary Flames 3-2 last night. Pavelski scored on a deflection in the first period and on the power play in the second to give him five goals in his past two games and 18 in the past 20 to tie Anaheim's Corey Perry with 27 on the season.
BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand continued his recent hot scoring stretch with a pair of goals yesterday, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings. Marchand, who also had two in Boston's shootout loss in Chicago on Sunday, has scored six in his past four games. Willie Mitchell and Jeff Carter scored for the Kings.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — DeAndre Jordan had 16 points and 21 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers breezed to a 112-103 victory over the Detroit Pistons yesterday. Jordan made his first seven shots — almost all on dunks. Blake Griffin added 25 points and Jamal Crawford scored 26 for the Clippers.
CHICAGO (AP) — Taj Gibson made a layup at the buzzer in overtime, lifting the Chicago Bulls to a 102-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers last night. With nine-tenths of a second left, Mike Dunleavy inbounded from underneath the basket and found Gibson cutting down the middle. The athletic forward then muscled toward the hoop for the winning basket.
