Teemu Selanne ended his playoff slump by scoring twice, and Evgeni Nabokov stopped 27 shots as the visiting San Jose Sharks beat the Colorado Avalanche, 6-3, last night in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. Selanne, who led the Sharks with 29 goals during the regular season, had not scored in the playoffs. San Jose took an early lead, withstood a rally from the defending Stanley Cup champions and put it away with two goals within 3 minutes in the third period. Colorado, which finished a physical, seven-game series against Los Angeles just two nights earlier, was sluggish early.

Joe Thornton made an immediate impact with his new team. Thornton had two assists in his debut with San Jose, setting up Jonathan Cheechoo twice, and the visiting Sharks snapped a 10-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres last night. Evgeni Nabokov made 20 saves for his fourth win of the season - and first since Oct. 15 against Chicago - but left with 11:20 remaining. He went directly to the dressing room, and backup Nolan Schaefer finished the game. Grant Stevenson, Milan Michalek, and Nicholas Dimitrakos also scored as the Sharks won for the first time since an overtime victory against Anaheim on Nov. 4. Thornton, acquired Wednesday in a four-player, blockbuster deal with the Boston Bruins, started at center between his cousin, Scott Thornton, and Cheechoo.

Mike Modano has found his scoring touch again, and that's good news for the Dallas Stars. Modano scored his 499th career goal, 14th this season, 35 seconds into overtime and the Stars edged the visiting Los Angeles Kings, 4-3, yesterday. He is three goals behind Joe Mullen for the career lead among U.S.-born players. "It was a good play. It took me a second or 2 to get it to my forehand," said Modano, who sat out 23 consecutive games in December and January with a hip injury.

SIXTY-FIVE minutes. One-hundred thirty-eight shots blasted by both teams, including the 43 attempts that were blocked and the 32 that missed the net entirely. Zero goals. Strange game. Familiar result. Somehow, when it was all over and fans were awakened from their slumber, Ilya Bryzgalov skated off with his 25th career shutout last night while the New York Islanders celebrated their 1-0, shootout win over the Flyers at the other end of the ice. Wait, what?

THE HOCKEY player was two-thirds of the way through his first game since suffering a concussion on Jan. 21, and he still appeared to be feeling his way. But the hockey player is also a father, and Danny Briere knew that his place after the second period was to stand at the end of the bench and open the gate and greet his son, Cameron, and the other participants in a shootout competition. Actually, by then, Briere said he felt OK. "The first period, it was tough a little bit to get going, the timing," he said.

The Flyers dominated Tuesday's game against the lowly New York Islanders at the mostly quiet Wells Fargo Center. It didn't matter, because Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov stole a win for his pesky team. Nabokov, whom the Flyers tried to acquire in 2010, made 45 saves as the Islanders defeated the Flyers in a shootout, 1-0. The Flyers absorbed a season-high third consecutive loss despite outshooting the Islanders, 45-18. "You always want to get two points, but I'm really happy with the effort," defenseman Kimmo Timonen said.

HENRIK LUNDQVIST made 27 saves for his fourth shutout of the season, and the New York Rangers stayed atop the NHL standings with a 3-0 victory over visiting Nashville last night, stopping the Predators' winning streak at five games. The Rangers had lost two of three and still haven't quite broken out of a scoring slump. New York has averaged about two goals in 12 games since Christmas. John Mitchell scored midway through the second period, defenseman Dan Girardi had a goal in the first and Ryan Callahan was awarded a goal when he dived to try to knock the puck into an empty net in the final minute, and Nashville's Martin Erat dived on top of him. Rangers fans chanted "Hen-rik!"

John Tavares had three goals, including the tie-breaking tally in the third period, and added an assist for the host New York Islanders , who beat the New York Ranger s, 4-2, and gave goalie Evgeni Nabokov a win in his return to the NHL on Saturday night. The Islanders have won three straight following an opening-night loss, and they have Tavares to thank for the last two. After the young forward had two goals and two assists in the first period of New York's 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay on Thursday, Tavares roared back with a pair of go-ahead, power-play goals and his second straight four-point game in front of a sellout crowd that traded cheers for both teams.

LOS ANGELES - Leaving the draft floor at the Staples Center to board a red eye flight back to Philadelphia, Paul Holmgren left the status of the Flyers' 2010 offseason the way it was when he arrived out West: open-ended. "A lot is going to happen between now and July 2," Holmgren said with his trademark dry sense of humor, referring to the day after free agency begins in the NHL. Undoubtedly, Holmgren left here on Saturday night with a bit of a sour taste in his mouth.
