  • Carlson has three points, Capitals defeat Sharks for fourth win in row

The defender scored one goal and two assists in opening to reach 40 points.

The Sharks were no match on Tuesday for the Washington Capitals, who scored three goals in the first period and added two more in the second to help win 5-2 in the SAP Center.

"It's tough to be as complete as we were out there", said Carlson, who reached 40 points (nine goals, 31 assists), becoming the first National Hockey League defenseman to do so in his team's first 29 games since Al MacInnis had 41 for the Calgary Flames in 1990-91.

Carlson scored with a slap shot from above the right face-off circle to make it 3-1 at 16:32. We had a very good start to the season and everyone was tied, making good games and getting good shots.

Carlson assisted on the first goal of the game for both Hathaway and Vrana and then scored his own as the Capitals rolled to another victory.

"He has been special to watch all year and not only on the offensive side, but how he has played in general", said coach Todd Reirden.

Melker Karlsson opened the scoring for San Jose, but the Sharks did little else until Evander Kane scored in the third period to cut the deficit to 5-2. Martin Jones allowed five goals on 22 shots before being replaced by Aaron Dell after two periods. San Jose lost for the third time only in 14 games.

"It's such a good team that when you're not playing well, you're going to get paid and they've certainly done it", said Sharks captain Logan Couture. Garnet Hathaway, Jakub Vrana and John Carlson scored within three minutes and a second to place the Sharks in a hole from which they could not escape. Joner made a few stops. We let it dry as we did several times at the beginning of the year. We must start defending a little stronger.

Kane later got a major penalty and a game misconduct for elbowing Radko Gudas in the head. Reirden had no immediate update on Gudas' condition.

The Capitals erased their early deficit with a scoring spree late in the first period, starting when Carlson's point shot deflected off Hathaway and in for the equalizer as Washington's fourth line delivered.

"They also played an important role in the last game", Reirden said. "That's what we had imagined since the beginning of the season and now that we have found them, they have returned to the same path".

Vrana made it 2-1 at 14:24 when he scored on his own rebound after a pass from Carlson to the top of the crease. "Momentum shifts are a big thing in this game, and we're real good at turning the momentum around. That was the disappointing part of it". Sharks D Brent Burns became the fourth defenceman to play in 500 consecutive games, joining Keith Yandle (823), Jay Bouwmeester (737) and Karl Alzner (624). Patrick Marleau played his 1,518th game with San Jose, placing Ray Bourque in Boston in fifth place with one team.
