SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Timo Meier scored the go-ahead goal with 8:42 remaining and added two assists as the San Jose Sharks handed the Ottawa Senators their third straight loss, 6-3 on Wednesday night.

Matt Nieto, Tomas Hertl, Nick Bonino, Logan Couture and Jacob Middleton also scored for San Jose, which won its second consecutive game.

James Reimer made 26 saves to earn his sixth win.

“I thought it was one of those games where there were a lot of momentum shifts,” Sharks coach Bob Boughner said. “I was happy with the way we stuck with it. I think it could’ve gone the other way on us real quickly.”

Brady Tkachuk had a goal and an assist for the Senators, who also got goals from Josh Norris and Connor Brown. Matt Murray made 23 saves in defeat.

“I thought we played a pretty good game,” Tkachuk said. “We controlled the play pretty well I thought the first 40 (minutes) and then we played pretty well until they got that one with eight minutes left or something. So definitely frustrating, but we’re gonna have to learn from this one.”

Nieto opened the scoring for San Jose with his first of the season just over seven minutes into the first period.

Norris netted the equalizer later in the period for his team-high eighth goal.

Hertl’s eighth put the Sharks ahead 2-1 in the second, but Tkachuk and Brown answered with goals 1:33 apart to give Ottawa its first lead.

Bonino, playing in his 700th career game, tied it on the power play with 31 seconds left in the second period, his first goal with the Sharks.

“That was one of the happiest goal piles I’ve been in,” Bonino said. “The guys were pretty happy for me. It felt like I could exhale finally.”

With the game tied at 3, Meier buried his seventh of the season just more than midway through the third.

“(Rudolfs Balcers) made a great pass to me and I was coming into the slot and just had the defenseman flat-footed there and got a pretty good shot off,” Meier said.

Couture added an empty-netter with 1:04 left, his seventh goal of the season. Middleton also scored an empty-netter in the final minute for his first NHL goal.

“At the end of the day, it’s about winning,” Norris said. “We’ve got to dig ourselves out of it and just keep playing.”

BACK IN TOWN

Dylan Gambrell returned to San Jose for the first time since being traded to Ottawa for a seventh-round draft pick on Oct. 24.

“Mixed emotions, I guess,” Gambrell said before the game. “It’s great to be back. I enjoyed my time here, obviously, and everybody was great to me. It’s great to be back, but at the same time, being on a different team now, it’s like any other game once you get on the ice.”

Gambrell was minus-1 in 10:32 on the ice.

KANE SUSPENSION

Boughner was asked about LW Evander Kane, who is eligible to return on Nov. 30 after his 21-game suspension for submitting a fake COVID-19 vaccination card.

“There’s been no update,” Boughner said. “Obviously, there’s gonna have to be here in the next four, five days. But from my standpoint, I think we’re just doing a good job of trying to eliminate any distractions and I think Evander’s done a good job of that and let us focus on our team and what we have here and what we can control, and we’ll get to that point.”

NOTES: Sharks C Jonathan Dahlen missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury. He remains day-to-day. … D Brent Burns didn’t have a point, ending a 14-game streak against the Senators dating to 2013. … Senators D Nikita Zaitsev was removed from the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol and was plus-1 in 15:17 of ice time. RW Drake Batherson remains on the protocol list.

Ducks blow late 3-goal lead, beat Kings 5-4 in shootout

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kevin Shattenkirk and Trevor Zegras scored in the shootout, and the Anaheim Ducks blew a three-goal lead in the third period before rallying for a 5-4 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night in the first Freeway Faceoff of the season.

Troy Terry and Shattenkirk scored unassisted goals in the second period and John Gibson made 30 saves before stopping two of Los Angeles’ three tries in the shootout. The Ducks got their 10th win in 14 games despite wasting a 4-1 lead with 13 minutes left in regulation after Cam Fowler and Isac Lundeström scored 29 seconds apart early in the third period.

Jonathan Quick stopped 32 shots and Dustin Brown scored the tying goal with 4:26 left in regulation for the Kings, who have lost six of seven after a seven-game winning streak.

Alex Iafallo scored two goals, and Adrian Kempe started Los Angeles’ third-period comeback with his eighth goal of the season.

Lias Andersson scored in the first round of the shootout for Los Angeles, but Zegras tied it for Anaheim in the second. Gibson stopped Anze Kopitar before Shattenkirk beat Quick for the winner.

A lively Staples Center crowd was rewarded with a barn-burner of a game when these revitalized Southern California rivals met for the 153rd time. Both clubs are showing significant progress this season after bottoming out with concurrent three-year playoff droughts.

Anaheim has been competitive near the top of the Pacific Division this season despite the departure of general manager Bob Murray, while Los Angeles has taken clear strides with new talent around its Stanley Cup-winning cornerstones.

Drew Doughty had an assist while playing almost 28 minutes in a quick return from seriously bruising his knee on Oct. 22. The Kings initially projected Doughty would be out for two months, but the 2016 Norris Trophy winner (and famously quick healer) missed five weeks and 16 games with the most significant injury of his 14-year career.

Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf left the ice in the first period with an apparent left ankle injury. The 36-year-old center is in the midst of an impressive rebound season with 20 points — including the 1,000th of his career — in 23 games.

After a scoreless first period, Terry put the Ducks ahead by moving through most of the Kings’ defense and unleashing a snap shot into the top far corner of Quick’s net for the 14th goal of his breakout season.

Anaheim went up 4-1 with two goals early in the third. Shortly after Fowler got a power play goal that deflected off Trevor Moore, Lundestrom drove the net and left the puck in the crease, but Los Angeles’ Matt Roy accidentally backhanded it off teammate Alex Edler and into Quick’s net.

Kempe scored on a deflection to make it 4-2, and the Kings nearly appeared to get another 21 seconds later before the officials ruled out Carl Grundstrom’s goal for a high stick. Los Angeles kept up its pressure, and Brown followed Iafallo’s second goal by tying it with his third goal of the season.
