Even at 2-2 after two periods, the Sharks potted three unanswered goals to defeat the rival Kings and clinch their 11th playoff berth in the past 12 seasons.

* The Sharks, who sit five points behind the Kings for first place in the Pacific Division, finished their five-game season series with a 3-1-1 record (LAK: 2-3-0). Joe Pavelski(1-1—2) led all players with 5-5—10 in the five matchups.

Joe Thornton provided the tiebreaking goal. He ranks second in the NHL with 14-43—57 in 47 games since Dec. 15.

FLYERS, RED WINGS KEEP PACE IN WILD CARD RACE . . .
Both the Flyers (37-25-13, 87 points) and Red Wings (38-27-11, 87 points) eked out wins to keep pace in the race for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference:

* The Jets erased a two-goal deficit, but Claude Giroux (1-1—2) scored with 13.6 seconds remaining in overtime to propel the Flyers to an 11-3-2 record in their past 16 games. Giroux, who has spent his entire NHL career with Philadelphia, posted his seventh overtime goal – and second of the season – to surpass Simon Gagne (6) for the most in franchise history.

* The Red Wings raced to a 3-0 lead and held off a late Sabres rally to pick up their fourth victory in their last six outings. Dylan Larkin notched his 22nd goal of the season, three off the rookie lead held by Chicago’s Artemi Panarin (25), while Jimmy Howardmade 18 saves to improve to 7-0-1 in nine career appearances vs. BUF (1.52 GAA, .937 SV%, 1 SO).

. . . AVALANCHE INCH CLOSER IN WESTERN CONFERENCE

* At 39-33-4 (82 points), Colorado moved within three points of idle Minnesota (37-28-11, 85 points) for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference.

Shawn Matthias scored what stood as the game-winning goal. He has 4-4—8 in 14 contests since joining the Avalanche, compared to 6-11—17 in his first 51 appearances of the season (w/ TOR).

AROUND THE RINKS
Ben Bishop stopped all 34 shots he faced to lift the Lightning to their fourth victory in their past five games and back into a tie – in terms of points – atop the Atlantic Division. Bishop set a career high with his sixth shutout of the season, three of which have come in his last six outings (also March 13 at CBJ: 37 SV and March 19 at ARI: 32 SV).

John Gibson turned aside 27 of 28 shots to guide the Ducks to a 4-1-1 record in their past six contests and within one point of first place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim also improved to 8-0-1 in its last nine games against Edmonton dating to Dec. 10, 2014, including five straight wins at Rexall Place.

Sean Monahan posted 1-2—3 and Sam Bennett added two goals to help the Flames snap a three-game skid. Monahan provided his sixth three-point performance of the season, while Bennett notched his third multi-goal game – he ranks eighth among rookies with 17 goals overall.
