SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)—Early in the third period, coach Todd McLellan could tell his San Jose Sharks’ recent travels had left their tanks dry.
After racking up more than 5,000 air miles and losing two tough games in the last week, the overall NHL leaders were clinging to a one-goal lead on the surging New York Rangers, who always seemed to be an instant shy of tying it.
Yet Evgeni Nabokov wouldn’t allow his sagging teammates to fold, making 17 of his 32 saves in the frantic third period of the Sharks’ 3-2 victory Saturday night.
“We were a pretty determined team, and I say that including the last 15 or 18 minutes there when we had nothing left,” McLellan said. “We found a way, and that’s the sign of a good team, so I’ll take that.”
