SAN JOSE, Calif. Javier Baez Jersey . - One game after Matt Nieto broke a long drought with an empty-net goal, he delivered one that was much more important.Nieto scored the tiebreaking goal with 11.5 seconds remaining to lead the San Jose Sharks to their first consecutive wins in more than a month with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.Even though it didnt seem like much, it was huge confidence-wise, Nieto said of the empty-net goal Saturday. You know, they come in bunches and Ive been patient all year, sticking to my game. Im glad to see its paying off.Marc-Edouard Vlasic also scored and Antti Niemi made 28 saves for the Sharks, who last won back-to-back games Oct. 26-28 against Anaheim and Colorado.Both two-game winning streaks followed skids of four games as San Jose has gotten off to a slow start this season.This team has always been streaky, forward Tommy Wingels said. When we win a couple, streaks build on top of each other. This team can reel off five, six, seven, eight in a row. Thats what were going to try to do here.Sean Couturier scored for the Flyers, who have dropped eight straight road games for their longest skid away from home since March 1998.Steve Mason made 25 saves as Philadelphia lost for the ninth time in 10 games.I think we controlled the game and played one of our best games of the year, captain Claude Giroux said. The results wont show how we played. I think we are in a tough stretch right now. When things like this happen with 12 seconds to go, we have to stick together.Nieto forced a turnover at centre ice on the game-winning play, leading Patrick Marleau in on a partial breakaway. Mason made the initial save but was knocked out of the play by teammate Braydon Coburn as Wingels went for the rebound.Nieto then knocked the loose puck into the empty net for his second goal in two games. He hadnt scored since the season opener before getting one Saturday against Anaheim.When youre not scoring, the general rule of thumb is go to the net and good things will happen, Nieto said. I know I tried to get there as fast as I can and luckily the puck bounced right there for me.Mason had no chance to stop Nietos game-winner as he was far out of position.They got two or three whacks at it and I was able to make the first save but was put in a position where I couldnt get back and make the second or third save, he said. So the second or third one went in. We just made a mistake at the wrong time.The Sharks played most of the third period without centre Logan Couture, who went to the dressing room after a hard collision with Michael Raffl and did not return. Couture went through the concussion protocol and will be re-evaluated Wednesday.The Flyers got off to a fast start on the road for a change, controlling the play in the opening period and taking the lead when Couturier beat Niemi with a shot from the top of the circle on a power play early in the first. That marked the first time in 12 road games this season that Philadelphia scored the first goal.The Sharks found their footing in the second and finally got the equalizer late when Vlasic capped a pretty passing sequence with his third goal of the season. Marleau started it with a pass out of the defensive zone to Couture near centre ice. Couture then fed Wingels along the boards and he quickly fed a rushing Vlasic, who beat Mason with a wrist shot.NOTES: The Sharks have one loss and two ties in their past 16 games against Philadelphia. ... F Vinny Lecavalier was a healthy scratch for the first time in his 16-year career after recording no goals and two assists the past 12 games. ... Philadelphia D Michael Del Zotto also was scratched. ... The Sharks sent D Matt Tennyson back to Worcester of the AHL. Fergie Jenkins Jersey .

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, Since the trapezoid was introduced, I have yet to see a goalie be penalized for playing the puck outside of the trapezoid. Jonathan Bernier came close last night. He was so concerned with not getting a penalty that he allowed a goal to be scored! I know he would have been penalized if he played the puck with his stick. Could he have kicked the puck over the goal line and then played it with his stick without being penalized? Wayne Sharp (son of Jim from Ann St.) Hi Wayne, I share many fond memories with your father as a couple of kids in the old neighborhood in Sarnia, Ontario. You might not have seen a goalie penalized for playing the puck outside the restricted area, but once the trapezoid rule was introduced I called it on two separate occasions. One time, the correct call was made. The other time, I flat out blew the call. I dont remember the goalie that was guilty and properly convicted, but I sure remember the time I penalized Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres unjustly. This further verifies my contention that referees never remember any of the good calls they made; only the ones they missed! The blown call happened in Buffalo when Miller came well out of his goal crease to stop the puck just ahead of the goal line. Miller carried the puck back toward the safety of his cage and as he approached the trapezoid two feet from where it T-eed into the goal line, Miller slid the puck over the line. It appeared from my position that the goalie maintained contact with the puck as it travelled on his stick from ahead of the goal line, through the unplayable area and into the safety of the trapezoid. I immediately raised my arm, stopped play and assessed a delay of game penalty to Ryan Miller. Kyle Schwarber Jersey. . Miller argued vehemently, but to no avail, that he had purposely removed his stick from the puck as it travelled through no mans land and then re-connected with the puck in the trapezoid. Miller was still hot under the mask at the next stoppage of play, so I solicited his honest take on the play. Once Miller advised me that he had lifted his stick blade and moved it in sync just above the puck until it crossed the trapezoid line, his argument was justified. Even though it all made sense at this point, the information I received was too little, too late! I then suggested that if the goalie intended to pass the puck to himself outside the trapezoid he should lift his stick clearly away from the puck so another referee would not be fooled in the same way I had been. When I further explained my misperception of the play to the Sabres goalie coach, he told me that Ryan should not have run that risk by keeping his stick so close to the puck and he would speak with him about it. Jonathan Bernier would have surely been assessed a delay of game penalty last night had he decided to play the puck in any manner, including by kicking it with his skate. The hesitation that Bernier demonstrated to avoid playing the puck in the restricted area prevented him from retreating to his goal crease in time to properly defend against the shot and resulted in a goal. Wayne, Rule 27.8 (Restricted Area) defines the position of the puck and not the goalkeepers skates as the determining factor. The one caveat to that is unless the goalkeeper plays the puck while maintaining skate contact with his goal crease. Given the size and reach of many of the goalkeepers in the game today maintaining contact with the goal crease and playing the puck outside the restricted area is a distinct possibility.
