Hertl has goal and assist as Sharks top Flames 3-1
SAN JOSE,Calif. (AP) — Tomas Hertl had a goal and an assist to help the San Jose Sharks beat the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Sunday night. Timo Meier and Kevin Labanc also scored as San Jose won their second straight after an 0-3-0 start. Logan Couture had two assists and Patrick Marleau had one in his first home game since rejoining the Sharks. Martin Jones stopped 32 shots after posting a 4.55 goals-against average while losing his first three starts."I don't think it's an accident that we've won the last two and he's been in the lineup," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said of Marleau's return. "He just plays the right way. He does the right thing when he's out on the ice all the time.
Little scored at 3:04 of overtime to give the Winnipeg Jets a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night in the Heritage Classic outdoor game.
Little scored off a 2-on-1 with Kyle Connor, tucking the puck under goalie David Rittich at the corner of the net.
"It's pretty cool," Little said. "It was one of those games where I pretty much didn't have any chances. Then you get a 2-on-1 like that in overtime. I'll admit I really didn't do too much. I just went to the net and put my stick on the ice and Kyle made a great pass. But it was definitely a great feeling."
Little missed the first nine games of this season with a concussion. The longest-serving Jet in his 13th NHL season wasn't able to play in the 2016 Heritage Classic at Winnipeg's IG Field because of a knee injury.

"Couldn't go better, to score on the second shift."Andrew Mangiapane also scored, and Elias Lindholm added an empty-net goal for Calgary, which snapped a two-game losing skid.
"It was definitely frustrating last time watching from the sidelines and not getting to experience it," Little said. "When I heard we were playing outside I had this circled on the calendar. Definitely lived up to everything."
Josh Morrissey also scored and Connor Hellebuyck stopped 29 shots to help Winnipeg win Canada's first outdoor game in a non-NHL city.

"As soon as we walked out of the tunnel, the crowd was electric," Morrissey said. "It was completely full and as a player, it was just an awesome time and I think the city and the province really embraced it."
Flames vs. Jets: 2019 Heritage Classic by the numbers
Coverage begins at 10 p.m. ET on NBCSN.2 – Number of regular-season games the original Jets played in Saskatoon during the 1992-93 NHL season. Winnipeg won both games, beating Hartford 8-7 and Ottawa 8-2.
Wind gusts between 17 and 27 miles per hour put wind-chill at around 14 degrees at puck drop. Snowflakes began dusting the Stadium a few hours prior to the game and intensified after the opening faceoff. As snow accumulated between scrapes, puck handling, shooting and passing became laborious.
"It feels right," Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk said. "It feels like that's how hockey should be and how legends of the past grew up playing. You hear all the greats talk about growing up and playing on the outdoor rink. It's cool to play in that environment where it's snowing, it's causing the ice to be slower, you're falling, you're losing the puck, it bounces all over the place."
There were plenty of scoring chances as each team had 26 shots on goal through the first 40 minutes.
With Flames center Sean Monahan serving a tripping penalty, the Jets couldn't score on a 4-on-3 advantage in overtime.
Winnipeg captain Blake Wheeler put the puck off the crossbar with seconds remaining in the penalty.
Morrissey pulled the Jets even with 4:11 left in regulation with a power-play goal. With Flames captain Mark Giordano serving a hooking penalty, Patrick Laine fed the Jets' defender from behind the net. Morrissey threaded a shot through traffic to the top corner over Rittich's glove.

Gavin NewsomPowerful winds were fanning wildfires in northern California in "potentially historic fire" conditions, authorities said, as tens of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate and sweeping power cuts began in the state.
It was Winnipeg's first goal in an outdoor game. The Jets were shut out 3-0 at Winnipeg's IG Field by Edmonton in 2016.
After a scoreless first period, Lindholm's power-play goal with 5:13 of the second was his team-leading seventh goal of the season. Johnny Gaudreau, on Hellebuyck's right, tapped the puck over to Lindholm to shovel it past the Winnipeg goalie.
Jets head coach Paul Maurice challenged the goal believing Matthew Tkachuk raised his stick above his shoulders to knock down the puck and and keep it in the offensive zone. However, Maurice was denied, which resulted in a Jets minor penalty for the failed challenge.
Winnipeg's Adam Lowry cross-checked Flames defenseman Oliver Kylington into the boards to end the period, which put the Flames on the power play to start the third.
NOTES: Winnipeg finished 1 for 5 on the power play, while Calgary was 0 for 3. ... The outdoor game was Calgary's first of five road games over eight days. ... Jets C Mason Appleton was a scratch, having broken a bone in his foot throwing the football with his teammates at Mosaic prior to Friday's skate. ...
