CHICAGO -- San Jose coach Todd McLellan gushed about the Sharks defence and effort. Lee Smith Raiders Jersey . He also praised goalie Alex Stalock. What a difference a day makes. Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored in a shootout, and the Sharks beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night for their first victory in Chicago in three years. "This was the best defensive effort weve had in this building in a while," McLellan said. Stalock made 33 saves through overtime as San Jose bounced back from a 4-3 loss at Colorado on Saturday. Jason Demers scored in the first period, and Brett Burns had a tying goal in the third. The Sharks allowed the first four goals in the loss to the Avalanche, and McLellan pulled Antti Niemi early in the second period in favour of Stalock. McLellan then talked about holding the goalies accountable in 2014, along with the rest of the team. "Its hard to demand perfection, but you have to demand as close as you can get to that," McLellan said. "The players tonight gave us that. It still was a tough task. To score only two and win a game against Chicago, youve done something pretty well." Couture beat Corey Crawford with a shot into the right side of the net after Stalock stopped Chicago captain Jonathan Toews leading off the shootout. Patrick Sharp then shot wide before Pavelski scored to give the Sharks their first win at the United Center since Dec. 30, 2010. Crawford made 40 saves in his first home start since he left Chicagos 6-2 victory over Florida on Dec. 8 because of a lower-body injury. He came back on Thursday and stopped 31 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss at the New York Islanders. "Its a tough loss to take when youre down by a goal, get up by one, and they tie it up again," Crawford said. "The shootout wasnt close, obviously. Tough loss." Defencemen Niklas Hjalmarsson and Michal Rozsival scored in the third period for the Blackhawks (29-7-9), who have earned at least one point in their last 10 games. It was their fifth home shootout loss. "Weve lost a few in a row here and I think it could be a little bit uncomfortable, or a lack of confidence, but weve got to work our way through it," coach Joel Quenneville said of the shootout trouble. "Weve left a lot of points on the board. "We could have put ourself in a better spot than were at. Thats been a sour spot recently." San Jose (27-10-6) trailed 2-1 before Joe Thornton made a great pass across the crease to Burns, who slammed the puck in at 11:10 of the third. Thornton has 12 assists during an eight-game point streak, running his NHL-best total to 43 on the season. San Jose had dropped six straight in Chicago by a combined score of 24-11, including a 5-1 loss on Nov. 17. The Sharks and Blackhawks are two of the top teams in the Western Conference. "Any win in here is special," Thornton said. "Its a hard place to play. They play fast. They play hard, and any win in this building is huge." The Blackhawks had few quality scoring chances in the first two periods, with most of their shots coming from the outside. Stalock grabbed most of them cleanly, and San Jose swept away any potential problems around the net. Stalock had a little trouble with a shot by Duncan Keith with 8 1/2 minutes left in the second, but he fell on the puck before Andrew Shaw could get a stick on it. The NHLs highest-scoring team appeared to be headed for its first shutout of the season before two unlikely players combined to put the Blackhawks in front. First, Hjalmarsson skated toward the middle of the ice, got a pass from Toews and beat Stalock at 1:27 of the third. Then Rozsivals long slap shot through traffic made it 2-1 just 2:34 after Hjalmarssons fourth goal. It was Rozsivals first since March 1, 2012, for Phoenix. Hjalmarsson hadnt scored since Nov. 30 at Phoenix. The Sharks grabbed the lead midway through the first period. They had an extended possession in the Blackhawks zone before Demers skated into an open area on the right side of the net and one-timed a pass from Couture past Crawford. It was Demers third goal of the season, all in his past eight games. Couture extended his point streak to five games after scoring in each of his previous four. NOTES: Sharks forward Eriah Hayes made his first NHL appearance. He was recalled from Worcester of the AHL on Saturday. ... The announced crowd of 21,599 was the 250th consecutive home sellout for the Blackhawks, counting the post-season. ... The Blackhawks scratched defencemen Michael Kostka and Sheldon Brookbank. ... The Sharks scratched defenceman Scott Hannan and centre Tyler Kennedy. T.J. Carrie Raiders Jersey . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. Mario Edwards Jr Raiders Jersey . MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. http://www.cheapraidersjerseyspro.com/Authentic_Neiko_Thorpe_Raiders_Jersey/ .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court.AVONDALE, Ariz. -- Brad Keselowski rolled into Phoenix International Raceway a year ago locked into a tight championship battle with Jimmie Johnson, and left the track poised to claim his first Sprint Cup title. Back at the track where his fortunes turned, Keselowski is a mere spectator to this years title fight. "Im relaxed, but not in a good way," he admitted. "Id much rather be fighting for a championship, everyone can agree with that." Instead, its Johnson, again, in the mix. The five-time champion leads Matt Kenseth by seven points -- the same margin Johnson held over Keselowski at this stage last season -- heading into Sundays penultimate race at Phoenix. Barring some sort of collapse by both drivers, it will be either Johnson or Kenseth who claims the Sprint Cup trophy following next weeks finale at Homestead. And with that, Keselowskis reign will come to an official end. Some will say he went out with a whimper. In failing to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, Keselowski wasnt eligible to defend his title. But hes proud he defeated five-time champion Johnson a year ago -- a feat only he and Tony Stewart have accomplished since 2006. "To me, knowing the playing field and how it all works, its something I take a lot more pride in than if I didnt understand the playing field," Keselowski said. "Obviously, that team is immune to the cycles that everyone else is, and to beat them is a very large accomplishment in this sport. Whether that was Tony the year before me, and then myself, they are just a great team and it takes a clutch effort to beat them. Im proud of the fact we were able to deliver last year." Keselowski did get some assistance in winning his title from Johnsons own misfortunes. At Phoenix, Johnson blew a tire and finished 32nd. Keselowski finished sixth and had a comfortable 20-point lead going into the finale, where Johnson had a mechanical failure. Keselowski took some of the credit for Johnsons issues, claiming he toyed with Johnson during practice at Phoenix -- a notion Johnson dismissed Friday, "I dont even remember that. What did he do?" But Keselowskis idea of toying with Johnson was never letting up, and running him hard every session. He doesnt believe combating that type of attack is Johnsons strength, and Kenseth would be wise to take that approach the next two weeks. "For (Johnson), I wouldnt want to have to race somebody that is going to race me hard because that is not their wheelhouse. That was one of our strengths last year," Keselowski said. "If I was going to give Matt a piece of advice, Id say run the hell out of him every timme you can. Authentic Raiders Jersey. Run (Johnson) hard because thats his weakness." Keselowski believes it contributed to Johnsons tire problem at Phoenix that ultimately gave him the points lead. "He drove the car too hard until it blew out a tire," Keselowski said. "You could look at it and say that was a tire failure or whatever. Those in the garage, who know how the cars work, know it was reaching too hard and the failure that was caused from that. Thats that groups weakness." Thats not how Johnson recalled it when asked about Keselowskis version of events Friday. He said to go ask Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin, Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards -- the drivers Johnson has beaten for titles -- how hard he races before conceding that Keselowski was simply better than he was at Phoenix last year. "We race hard. Thats not a weakness of ours by any stretch," Johnson said. "Last year here, they were better than us, for sure. We worked real hard to play catch-up through the course of the weekend. Sure, we had a tire failure, and, yes, we overworked the tire. We created an issue ourselves. "We love to race hard. Thats what were here to do. Im not the best at putting up the fastest lap, the best at qualifying, the best at topping the speed charts in practice, but look at the fastest cars on the racetrack -- Im good at racing. Thats my sweet spot." What Keselowski has proven to be good at is rankling feathers, and even though hes not in this title race, he has remained relevant in this Chase because of a large personality and a commitment to speaking his mind. So there was no chance he was going to step aside quietly, especially not after Johnson crew chief Chad Knaus last week said that Kenseth is a "more formidable" opponent this year than Keselowski. Knaus made the remark following Johnsons win at Texas, where the crew chief said Kenseth "is a little more controlled. Hes a little more mature. Hes been in the sport for a long time. I think hes just a little more even keel, so that makes him a little more challenging to get off kilter." Keselowski didnt hear it, but learned of Knaus remark later. Hes giving Knaus the benefit of the doubt, but the remark clearly struck him. "Maybe the emphasis should be put on respecting what Matt has done and not disrespecting where Im at," Keselowski said. "Im not really sure what exactly he was trying to get at, so I guess Ill give him that benefit of the doubt. Either way, it doesnt take anything away from what we were able to accomplish last year and what I think we are able to accomplish in the future, even if we havent this year."
