CHICAGO -- San Jose coach Todd McLellan gushed about the Sharks defence and effort. Troy Stecher 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. Ben Hutton Jersey . Carling Bassett-Seguso was a world No. 8 almost 30 years ago. Currently 13th, Bouchard is assured of equalling that when the next rankings are released Monday. Alexander Edler Jersey . Funny, they looked like longtime friends during Pittsburghs 5-1 demolition of Dallas on Tuesday night. Quick to the puck and even quicker to the net, the Penguins top line overwhelmed the suddenly struggling Stars as Pittsburgh bounced back from a dismal weekend sweep at the hands of Philadelphia by jumping on Dallas early. http://www.officialcanuckshockeyshop.com/Pavel-Bure-Jersey/ . The result means Atletico Madrid now tops the table, with Madrid level on points in second and Barcelona a point behind in third with nine games remaining as the title race shapes up to be the closest in years.ARLINGTON, Texas -- Peyton Manning spent all afternoon putting the Broncos in the end zone during a wild shootout with Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. The last time he got the ball, Manning kept Denver out of the end zone -- and that was the best way to win the game. The four-time MVP kept up his record pace for touchdown passes, Matt Prater kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired after an interception by Romo spoiled the first 500-yard game in Dallas history, and the Broncos stayed unbeaten with a 51-48 victory Sunday. "It was pretty amazing that it came down to the defence making a big play at the end," Denver coach John Fox said. "Thank God our offence kept us in the game all day long." In the waning seconds of one of the highest-scoring thrillers in NFL history, Manning ensured that his kicker -- not Romo -- had the last chance to score. And with that, the Broncos ran their total to 230 points this season -- the most by an NFL team through the first five games. The Broncos have also won 16 consecutive regular-season games. The Broncos (5-0) had moved the ball to the Dallas 2 after Danny Trevathans diving interception at the 24 in the final 2 minutes. Needing a first down but not a touchdown so they could run out the clock, Manning and Knowshon Moreno shouted at each other in the backfield just before the snap. "He basically was asking me, How am I supposed to do that? How can I get a half a yard but not get a yard and a half?" said Manning, who threw for 414 yards and four touchdowns to give him a record-setting 20 in the first five games. "I just said, You cant! You cant score! You cant do it!" Moreno managed to pull off the first down without scoring, and Manning took three snaps to drain the clock to 2 seconds for Prater, who also had a 50-yarder among his three field goals. It was quite a debate over a measly yard in a game with 1,039 yards of total offence combined in the fourth-highest highest scoring game in NFL history and tied for the second-highest in regulation since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, according to STATS. Romo was 25 of 36 for 506 yards and five touchdowns, breaking Don Merediths franchise record of 460 yards. He is the fifth quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 500 yards and five touchdowns in a game. Romos 79-yard pass to Dez Bryant set up a 4-yard scoring toss to Cole Beasley for a 48-41 lead. Manning, who threw for 414 yards and moved past Dan Marino for second on the career passing list with 61,371 yards, answered by leading a nine-play, 73-yard drive to Morenos tying 1-yard score with 2:44 remaining. Romos interception came two plays later, when Trevathan dived inn front of tight end Gavin Escobar. Todd Bertuzzi Jersey. . "I was baiting him," said Trevathan, who scared his teammates with a knee injury in practice last week that turned out not to be serious. "Romo threw it and I felt like, man, hopefully I dont drop the ball when I get in the end zone this time. I fell to the ground and said, Forget it!" The Cowboys (2-3) were on the verge of getting blown out early in the second half when they finally stopped Manning and forced a field goal. They later ended his streak of 227 passes without an interception when Morris Claiborne picked him off late in the third quarter. Dallas, which scored its most points ever in a loss, converted the turnover into a 41-38 lead on Romos 10-yard pass to Jason Witten, but the Broncos pulled even with a drive to Praters 50-yarder. The biggest momentum swing came on Romos 82-yard touchdown to rookie Terrance Williams that cut Denvers lead to 35-27 in the third quarter. "So you leave this game and obviously you are crushed and disappointed," said Witten, who had 121 yards receiving and a touchdown. "Offensively, this needs to be the standard by which we play." The Cowboys jumped ahead 14-0 in the first quarter, but Dallas defenders just couldnt stay with Denvers receivers. Then Manning fooled them and the 92,758 watching his first game at the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys with a bootleg for an easy 1-yard score and a 28-17 lead late in the first half. Denver lined up for what looked like a run on third down from the 1. But Manning had faked the handoff, and the roar from thousands of orange-clad Denver fans grew as they realized he was jogging toward the left corner of the end zone for his first touchdown rushing since 2008. "The key is you want to do it about every five years or so," Manning said. "If you do it every game, theyre going to be playing it right. Naked bootlegs only work, the ones Ive done, is when you don tell anybody." Romo got Dallas in position for a 48-yard field goal by Dan Bailey just before halftime with a 38-yard completion to Williams, who had 151 yards receiving. Bryant had six catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns. Julius Thomas led the Broncos with 122 yards and two scores, and Moreno had 93 yards rushing for the Broncos. NOTES: Manning fell two passes short of Jake Plummers franchise record of 229 straight passes without an interception. Plummer set the mark in 2005. ... Mannings 20 TDs through five games broke Daunte Culpeppers record for Minnesota of 18 in 2004. ... Broncos CB Chris Harris, who started in place of Champ Bailey, didnt play in the second half because of a concussion.
