Flyers Suffer Another Frustrating Finish, This Time With Their Own Fans Watching

The Kings had the bulk of the chances in the first period, scoring with 6:04 left in the period on Brown's second this year. Third-line center Nic Dowd did the dirty work, controlling the puck down low before finding Brown atop the left faceoff circle (see full recap).

Sheary, Penguins edge Oilers
PITTSBURGH -- Conor Sheary scored twice, including the winner with 1:42 left, to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Edmonton Oilers 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin also scored for Pittsburgh while Matt Murray stopped 25 shots in his first home start since Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. Sidney Crosby was held without a point but helped begin the sequence that set up Sheary for the go-ahead goal.

Edmonton star Connor McDavid assisted on all three Oiler goals, more than holding his own against Crosby, his childhood idol. Jordan Eberle scored twice and Patrick Maroon picked up his fifth of the season. Cam Talbot made 27 saves but couldn't make a two-goal lead stand up.

Pittsburgh got the late lead when Edmonton forward Benoit Pouliot's clear attempt smacked off Sheary and into the net.

The Penguins won their fourth straight and remained unbeaten in regulation (6-0-1) (see full recap).

Sharks shut out Capitals
WASHINGTON -- Martin Jones stopped 24 shots, Brent Burns scored his fifth goal of the season and the San Jose Sharks beat Washington 3-0 on Tuesday night to end the Capitals' five-game winning streak.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Burns had second-period goals for the Sharks, who had lost three straight. It was Jones' 14th career shutout and the first of the season for the defending Western Conference champions, who scored only four goals during their three-game skid.

Joe Thornton added an empty-netter with 1:32 left (see full recap).
