With a little more than a quarter of the season gone, the San Jose Sharks know the points they accumulate now might pay off come playoff time. Chris Johnson Jersey .San Jose goes for its fourth win in a row on Saturday night when it plays host to the Anaheim Ducks, who hope to get some better production from two of their stars while trying to snap a three-game skid.This is the fourth game of a five-game homestand and a stretch in which the Sharks (12-8-1) play seven games in 11 days. San Jose coach Peter DeBoer now is the time to rack up points.Were in the middle of a really tough stretch of the schedule, lot of games, short number of days. Were just trying to grind through and put points in the bank, he said Friday.San Jose has been doing just that when playing its division rivals at the SAP Center. The Sharks improved to 10-1-0 in their last 11 at home against the Ducks with a 2-1 overtime victory on Oct. 25 as Joe Pavelski scored early and assisted on Marc-Edouard Vlasics winning goal.Pavelski has two goals and three assists in a season-high five-game points streak. He is tied with Brent Burns for the team lead with 18 points.Burns, who signed an eight-year, $64 million contract extension on Tuesday, has posted three straight multi-point games, totaling two goals and four assists.Burns has failed to register a point in three straight at home against Anaheim. However, one of the assists during his current run came on Patrick Marleaus game-winning goal with 23 seconds left in a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders on Friday. San Jose led 2-1 in the final minute before rookie Aaron Dell surrendered the tying goal with 55 seconds remaining.Were finding ways to win, and theyre close games, too, so we can build off of that, Marleau said after San Joses seventh win in nine home games.Martin Jones has been stellar in goal for the Sharks, stopping 59 of 60 shots in his last two games, but he has had a surprising lack of success when facing Anaheim. In eight career starts, Jones has a 1.63 goals-against average and .933 saver percentage but is just 3-5-0.Special teams play has also had a hand in the Sharks dominance at home against the Ducks in recent years. In the last 11 home games, San Jose has killed off 24 of Anaheims 25 power plays.Anaheim (9-8-4) is in the middle of the pack in the Pacific and just three points behind San Jose despite winning just three of 10 on the road this season. The Ducks suffered their third straight loss, 3-2 to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.All of the losses in Anaheims current skid have been by the same score, dropping the Ducks to 0-8-4 when scoring two goals or less.Weve got to score goals. ... Weve had opportunities, its not like were not trying, were not playing, Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf said Friday.After scoring a career-best 31 in 2013-14, Getzlafs goal-scoring dipped to 25 in 2014-15, then to 13 last season and just one this season. The 31-year-old center hasnt scored a goal in 15 straight games.Linemate Corey Perry, also 31, has four goals in 20 games after averaging 36.6 in the previous three seasons. He has failed to score in 13 straight.With me and (Perry) not scoring the way we are right now, we need to put pucks in the net. We play a lot of minutes. We need to find ways to score goals, Getzlaf said.A turnaround might not happen against the Sharks. Getzlaf has two assists, and Perry has had a goal and an assist in the past seven meetings.With the loss to Chicago, John Gibson fell to 6-7-3 with a 2.62 GAA with a .906 save percentage and one shutout. Games on back-to-back days could signal that Ducks coach Randy Carlyle will go with Jonathan Bernier in goal.In six starts this season, Bernier is 3-1-1 with a 2.04 GAA and .938 save percentage. One of the losses, though, came against the Sharks despite exiting after 20 minutes with an injury. In three career starts at San Jose, Bernier has allowed 14 goals for a 6.03 GAA. Giancarlo Stanton Marlins Jersey . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. Ichiro Suzuki Jersey . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. http://www.officialmarlinsbaseball.com/Jose-Fernandez-Jersey/ . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. DEL MAR, Calif. -- Combine a Kentucky Derby winner, the first- and third-place finishers from the Dubai World Cup, two winners of the Santa Anita Derby, runners who have won five Eclipse Awards, two Breeders Cup races, a Horse of the Year title, and 19 Grade 1 races, plus the only female winner of the Pacific Classic, and what do you have?The race of the year.Beholder, California Chrome, and Dortmund form the white-hot core of the Grade 1, $1 million Pacific Classic on Saturday at Del Mar. In an era when trainers and owners often look for the softest spot, no one connected with these three blinked. Six others, including Hoppertunity, signed up.Its the best race so far this year, said Art Sherman, the trainer of California Chrome, who in March annexed a race worth 10 times as much money in Dubai.I dont know how you could make it much better, said Richard Mandella, the trainer of Beholder. Theres no shortage of good horses in there.The Pacific Classic came out of the gate in 1991 with the likes of Best Pal, that years Kentucky Derby runner-up, and the previous years Derby winner, Unbridled. Cigar came into the 1996 edition riding a 16-race winning streak, including the Dubai World Cup and Breeders Cup Classic.There have been subsequent editions with Kentucky Derby winners, Breeders Cup Classic winners, and Dubai World Cup winners, but in terms of overall accomplishment and current form, Del Mar chief executive Joe Harper can say of this race without exaggeration, I dont think theres been a better lineup since its inception.Theres a first prize of $600,000 at the end of the Pacific Classics 1-1/4 miles, but even more is on the line. The winner gets a fees-paid berth in the Breeders Cup Classic on Nov. 5 at Santa Anita through the Win and Youre In program. And California Chrome will seek to retain his position as the top contender for Horse of the Year, a title he won in 2014, the year he won the Kentucky Derby.California Chrome, who has preferred to do his running from an outside, stalking position, will have to work out a trip from the rail.My horse is better when he has something to run at, Sherman said.California Chrome got that trip in the San Diego Handicap, in which he tracked Dortmund -- to whom he gave five pounds -- before wearing him down. Sherman said he believes California Chrome will move forward off that race, his first in four months.Ive seen a big change in his training, Sherman said. Theres nothing like a race under your belt.. Miami Marlins T-shirts. Like in Dubai, after he had the prep there, he was a lot different horse.Mandella believes Beholder will raise her game from the Clement L. Hirsch Stakes three weeks ago, when she was upset by Stellar Wind, ending an eight-race winning streak. Beholder earned the fastest Beyer Speed Figure of her career in last years Pacific Classic, and its not like Mandella to take on a challenge like this as a flight of fancy. He watched her closely before committing. If Beholder wasnt giving off every sign that she is going to run big, shed be in the barn.Dortmund, plagued by foot troubles earlier this year, got a career-best figure last time out when he was narrowly defeated by California Chrome while making his first start in eight months.He knew he was in a fight, said trainer Bob Baffert.Dortmund can take it, though. Hes a big, hulking horse, and Baffert has put three works into him since the San Diego. Hes put on 11 pounds since the race, said Baffert, who said Dortmund checked in at 1,343 pounds last weekend.Dortmund has won eight of 11 starts. His three losses have been in races won by American Pharoah and California Chrome, both Derby winners.Baffert also entered the late-running Hoppertunity after being pleased with his work on Monday.A win by anyone else would be a significant upset.Hard Aces comes off a victory in the Grade 3 Cougar II here and nosed out Hoppertunity in the 2015 Gold Cup at Santa Anita.Win the Space was second in this years Grade 1 Gold Cup behind Melatonin and was third last time out in the San Diego to California Chrome and Dortmund.Dalmore, the only 3-year-old in the field, is seeking his third straight win.Imperative is winless in 17 starts since capturing the 2014 Charles Town Classic.War Story has a career-best Beyer Speed Figure of 92 and comes off a win against an allowance field at Thistledown that was so weak that he was 1-20 in the wagering.The Pacific Classic is the ninth race on an 11-race card that begins at 2 p.m. Pacific. It is preceded by the Grade 1, $300,000 Del Mar Oaks for 3-year-old turf fillies, which goes as race 6, and the Grade 2, $250,000 Del Mar Handicap for long-distance grass horses, which goes as race 8.The Pacific Classic is also the final leg of a cross-country pick four that includes the Alabama and Fourstardave from Saratoga and the Del Mar Handicap. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
