CHICAGO (AP) — The San Jose Sharks roared back for a win and the reeling Chicago Blackhawks lost more than just another game.Melker Karlsson Tomas Tatar Jersey Womens , Evander Kane, Kevin Labanc, Tomas Hertl and Logan Couture each had a goal and an assist, and the Sharks rallied to beat the Blackhawks 7-3 on Sunday night for their fourth straight victory.Marcus Sorensen and Barclay Goodrow also scored for the Sharks, who had three unanswered goals in the second period to take charge after starting goalie Martin Jones allowed three goals on Chicago’s first four shots. Brent Burns had three assists for San Jose, which has won six of seven and climbed into a tie with Anaheim for second in the Pacific Division.“There’s a lot of guys who played with confidence,” Couture said. “Take away the start, and we played a very, very good game.”Chicago goalie Corey Crawford left the game with 1:30 left in the first period after the back of his head struck the right post during a goalmouth pileup. He allowed two goals on eight shots and exited with the Blackhawks leading 3-2.Chicago coach Jeremy Colliton said Crawford was diagnosed with a concussion.“So he’ll be under the protocol and we’ll go from there,” Colliton said.“I didn’t talk to him Tom Kuhnhackl Jersey Womens , but of course we’re concerned. I think a concussion is a concussion. Every concussion is different, so we’ll see.”Aaron Dell replaced Jones late in the first and blocked all 16 shots he faced.“That’s one that could have gone off the rails pretty easy,” San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. “I thought we had a lot of composure on the bench.“There wasn’t a panic to it, even when we were down. We stuck with it. Deller came in and gave us some big saves when he needed to.”Alex DeBrincat, Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini scored in the first period for last-place Chicago, which lost for the 10th time in its last 11 games despite grabbing a quick 2-0 lead. Cam Ward replaced Crawford and gave up five goals on 35 shots.The 33-year-old Crawford was pulled from a Dec. 23, 2017, game at New Jersey with a concussion, then missed the remainder of the 2017-18 season and the first five games of 2018-19. He returned on Oct. 18 against Arizona and is 6-14-2 with a 3.28 goals-against average in 23 games.“A great goaltender, a great guy Anthony Beauvillier Jersey Womens , and important part of the team,” Colliton said. “We hope for a quick recovery.”The Blackhawks opened the scoring for only the second time in their last 13 games and led 3-2 after one period. Opponents had outscored Chicago 27-8 in the first period during that span.The Blackhawks scored on their first two shots, 47 seconds apart early in the first period.DeBrincat opened the scoring 2:34 in and Strome made it 2-0 from the slot on a deflection of Connor Murphy’s shot.The Sharks tied it 2-all midway through the first on goals 42 seconds apart by Karlsson and Sorensen.Perlini put Chicago back in front at 12:54 on a rebound after Dylan Sikura broke in and was stopped by Jones. Dell replaced Jones at the start of a penalty to San Jose’s Brenden Dillon a minute later.Crawford was injured with 90 seconds left in the first.Crawford had just made a pad save on Couture, who had broken in off the wing. As Couture cut across the crease, Strome tried to cut him off and slashed him.At the same moment, Kane plowed into Strome from behind and Strome tumbled into Crawford, forcing the goalie into the goalpost. Kane was assessed a minor penalty for goaltender interference.The Sharks scored three times on 14 shots against Ward in the second period to take a 5-3 lead. But Crawford’s exit had nothing to do with the surge, Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith said.“They picked it up a notch and we weren’t able to match that at all,” Keith said. “You never want to see (an injury), but we have to keep playing. Nothing should change.”Kane tied it 3-all at 4:21 of the period with a power-play goal Dustin Tokarski Jersey Womens , firing in a rebound of Brett Burns’ shot from the points.Goodrow put San Jose ahead 4-3 at 7:36 with a midair deflection of Justin Braun’s drive from the top of the slot. Couture made it 5-3 with 3:44 left in the second when Dillon’s shot from the point struck the shaft of his stick and flipped past Ward.Labanc scored on wrist shot from the circle with 6:57 left and Hertl completed the scoring with 1:33 remaining.NOTES: Crawford’s 14 losses are the most in the league. . Labanc the game early in the second period after being hit in the face by a stick, but returned. … Blackhawks C Artem Anisimov (concussion protocol) missed his second game. He suffered the injury in the third period of Wednesday’s 6-3 win over Pittsburgh. … Chicago D Gustav Forsling (shoulder) and D Brandon Davidson (knee) have resumed skating.UP NEXT:Sharks: At Minnesota on Tuesday.Blackhawks: Host Nashville on Tuesday. Outlier or slump-buster?Only the remaining 52 games of their schedule will decide that, but for now, the Minnesota Wild are hoping the answer is the latter. Tuesday night’s 7-1 rout of the Montreal Canadiens was just their fourth win in 11 games and their first laugher in almost a month.Article continues below ...Minnesota will look to stack a second win on top of that one Thursday night when the Florida Panthers visit Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., for the second of its four-game homestand.“If we don’t build on it, we’re not going to climb,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “We’re not in a playoff spot right now, so we’ve got to continue to have success and put a little run together. What better opportunity than this time when you have four games in a row at home?”At 16-12-2, Minnesota currently stands a point out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference Valtteri Filppula Jersey Womens , its 12-5-2 start canceled out by its recent skid. The rout of Montreal, though, provided a variety of signs that indicate a winning streak might be on tap.For starters, the Wild buried the Habs with four power-play goals, the first time they’ve done it since Oct. 14, 2010, when they victimized Edmonton. Their penalty kill was successful on their only opportunity, and goalie Devan Dubnyk bounced back from a brutal 7-2 loss in Edmonton Friday night with one of his typically stingy performances.Dubnyk stopped 29 shots, seven in the first nine minutes of the second period when Montreal made its push to equalize. Saves on Brendan Gallagher’s point-blank chance and Jonathan Drouin’s rebound attempt at the doorstep were more like flat-out robberies.“I mean, that’s my job. That’s what I’m here for and it’s OK to have to do that every once in a while Fredrik Claesson Jersey Womens ,” Dubnyk said. “I thought we did a really good job in front of the net. We were hard on guys that were shooting pucks from the point. We were getting blocks or were working on guys if the pucks were laying in front and that’s a big part of it.”While Minnesota was regaining confidence Tuesday night, Florida (11-12-6) was continuing its third straight season of mediocre play and results. The Panthers gave up four third-period goals in St. Louis to erase a 1-0 lead and fall 4-3.Florida may have at least two games in hand on all its opponents in the Atlantic Division, but it still sits in last place, already 21 points behind Tampa Bay and four out of the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot.What irked second-year coach Bob Boughner about this loss was the Blues‘ winning goal, a Brayden Schenn rebound marker. Boughner felt the referees missed a St. Louis penalty just before Schenn scored.“I thought it was a cross-check,” Boughner said. “The guy that cross-checks him ends up getting the puck and it’s in the back of our net. That’s how it played out.”The Panthers are expected to give forward Anthony Greco his NHL debut Thursday night. Greco has 12 goals and 11 assists in 24 games for their AHL affiliate in Springfield, Mass., and has notched 57 goals in three-plus seasons with Springfield.
