WASHINGTON (AP) For a few moments Calvin Ridley Jersey Limited , it looked as if the Detroit Red Wings were headed for another embarrassing loss. Then Tomas Tatar stepped up again.Tatar scored his second goal of the game 2:47 into overtime, and the Red Wings escaped with a 5-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday.Detroit had dropped three in a row. It blew a 5-2 third-period lead against the New York Islanders on Friday and lost 7-6 in overtime.”A lot of people expected us to fold after a tough game,” coach Jeff Blashill said. ”I thought we got back up real well.”Tatar beat Braden Holtby for his 14th goal of the season. He also scored with 11 seconds to play in the second period to give Detroit a 4-1 lead.Justin Abdelkader, Luke Glendening and Anthony Mantha also scored for the Red Wings, and Jimmy Howard made 23 saves in his first win since Jan. 5.”It was tough. I was worried it might be the same story as against the Islanders,” Tatar said. ”You don’t want that to happen. I felt really bad after the game. If you have two in a row like that, it would be just miserable.”Dylan Larkin, who assisted on both of Tatar’s goals, felt the team stayed together after Nicklas Backstrom tied it for Washington with 17 seconds to play.”All right http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/calvin-ridley-jersey , we’ve got 17 seconds and OT,” Larkin said. ”The encouraging thing is we can play like that. We can have teams on the ropes – and good teams on the ropes.”Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-best 33rd goal for Washington, which was coming off a home-and-home sweep of Columbus. Brett Connolly, Dmitry Orlov and Backstrom scored in the third, and Holtby stopped 24 shots.Ovechkin’s 10th power-play goal made it 1-0 at 4:20 in the first period. Evgeny Kuznetsov picked up an assist on the play, extending his point streak to a team-high seven straight games.The Red Wings responded with four straight goals, including three during a dominant performance in the second.Abdelkader stole the puck at the red line and tied it at 1 with his ninth of the season at 13:37 of the first. Glendening and Mantha scored nine seconds apart in the second, and Tatar’s first goal gave the Red Wings a 4-1 lead.”It’s not good enough. No one wants to play like that in the second,” Washington center Jay Beagle said.”We can’t leave our goalie out to dry Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , and it’s been happening a lot lately. They’ve been holding us in there and getting us wins, but it’s starting to show now.”The Capitals pulled within one on goals by Connolly and Orlov. They had a two-man advantage when they pulled Holtby and Dan Dekeyser was called for holding with 1:15 left, and Backstrom tied it with his 13th goal.NOTES: Washington coach Barry Trotz said F Lars Eller, who signed a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension Saturday, should be able to play more confidently. ”Now, he knows he’s going to be here,” Trotz said. ”It makes us strong up the middle.” … Detroit F Todd Bertuzzi, who committed a costly penalty that led to the Red Wings’ ugly loss to the Islanders on Friday Authentic Josh Allen Jersey , was a healthy scratch.UP NEXTRed Wings: Host Anaheim on Tuesday.Capitals: Begin a four-game trip Tuesday at Winnipeg.— SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Logan Couture agreed to a $64 million, eight-year contract extension with the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, according to a person familiar with the deal.The person told The Associated Press that the deal will become official as soon as Sunday, when Couture is eligible to sign the extension. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced.Couture is entering the final year of a $30 million, five-year contract and now will be locked up through the 2026-27 season.Couture was a first-round pick by San Jose in 2007 and has said he never wants to leave the franchise. He has developed into one of the Sharks’ top forwards since making his debut in 2009 and is coming off a career-high 34-goal season.Couture was San Jose’s most dependable center last season, often matching up against the opponent’s top line and providing plenty of offense of his own from the second line. Couture had 21 assists last year and was a major part of the power play and penalty killing units.The 29-year-old has 213 goals and 224 assists in 582 career games. He also has been a postseason standout, leading the NHL with 30 points in 2016 when he helped San Jose reach the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history before losing to Pittsburgh in six games.Couture has 34 goals and 47 assists in 96 career playoff games, ranking in the top 10 in the NHL in playoff goals and points since making his postseason debut in 2010.Locking up Couture was the first move made by general manager Doug Wilson this offseason. San Jose still is looking to re-sign center Joe Thornton and is making a run at New York Islanders center John Tavares.Thornton will be 39 next season and coming off his second major knee injury. He tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee on Jan. 23 and never returned to the lineup. He had a similar injury to his left knee the previous season and played four games in the postseason before undergoing offseason surgery.Thornton still performed at a high level last season after taking some time to get back up to speed. He had 11 goals and 15 assists in his final 28 games before the injury.The Sharks also met with Tavares this week http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-josh-allen-jersey , hoping to lure the top available free agent to San Jose. Tavares, who turns 28 in September, is one of the top centers in the league and would step into Thornton’s old role on the top line.The No. 1 overall pick by the New York Islanders in 2009 is coming off one of his most productive seasons as a pro. He had 37 goals and 47 assists last season, finishing one off his career best in both marks.Adding Tavares would provide perhaps the only missing piece to make the Sharks one of the top contenders for the Stanley Cup next season. San Jose lost in six games in the second round to eventual Western Conference champion Vegas and has a stellar defense led by Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Brent Burns, a reliable goaltender in Martin Jones, and forwards like Couture, Evander Kane and captain Joe Pavelski already under contract.Pavelski also is entering the final year of his contract and is eligible for an extension starting Sunday. Pavelski turns 34 this month.—
