The Columbus Blue Jackets welcome the Phoenix Coyotes to town while the Detroit Red Wings are in Buffalo to face the Sabres. Detroit and Columbus are currently four and three points ahead of the New Jersey Devils and Toronto Maple Leafs, respectively, in the Easts wild card race. The Maple Leafs are also in action tonight against the Lightning. Columbus is currently in postseason position as it holds the second of the Eastern Conferences two wild card spots with 87 points through 78 games. Columbus also is only two points behind Philadelphia for the third of the Metropolitan Divisions three automatic bids to the playoffs. The Flyers, who also have four games left, are visiting the Florida Panthers on Tuesday. The Blue Jackets picked up a valuable two points in their last trip to the ice, while Phoenix is currently mired in a costly four-game losing streak. Columbus, which is hosting its final game of the regular season tonight, used a potent power play on Sunday to bounce back from a deflating loss in its previous outing. The Blue Jackets converted on 3-of-6 opportunities with the man advantage in a 4-0 home win over the New York Islanders, two days after losing Fridays 4-3 regulation decision against visiting Chicago. Columbus failed to gain a point on Friday after the Blackhawks scored the winning goal in the waning seconds of regulation. Boone Jenner, Jack Johnson and Ryan Murray each record power-play goals on Sunday, while Mark Letestu added an even strength tally. Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves in his career-high 29th win of the season. "This is a huge win," Columbus forward Matt Calvert said. "We needed these two points badly. Our power play came up big and (Bobrovsky) was great." The Blue Jackets are 21-15-4 as the home team this season and had lost three straight (0-2-1) at Nationwide Arena before Sundays victory. Columbus will visit Dallas, Tampa Bay and Florida to complete its regular-season slate. Columbus notched a 2-0 win at Phoenix on Jan. 2, giving the Blue Jackets two straight wins in this series following a three-game slide versus the Coyotes. Phoenix has lost four in a row in Columbus, where it hasnt won since a 4-3 regulation victory on Jan. 11, 2011. The Red Wings hope to return to the win column on Tuesday when the playoff-hopeful club visits the Buffalo Sabres for a clash at First Niagara Center. Detroit is in position to secure its 23rd straight playoff berth, as it currently sits in the first of two wild card spots in the Eastern Conference. The Red Wings, who last missed the postseason in 1990, are one point ahead of Columbus and four in front of New Jersey and Toronto. The Red Wings had won four straight before losing Saturdays 5-3 decision in Montreal. Detroit rallied from a 3-0 deficit to even the score in the third period, but the Canadiens recovered to win it in regulation. Detroit used third-period goals from Pavel Datsyuk, Justin Abdelkader and Niklas Kronwall to tie the contest, but Brian Gionta restored Montreals lead with 6:47 left and Alex Galchenyuk added an insurance tally a little over two minutes later. Kronwall also added an assist in the loss, while Johan Franzen notched a pair of helpers. Meanwhile, Jonas Gustavsson only stopped 21 of the 26 shots he faced. "The puck went in our net way too often. Obviously, you cant give up five on the road and expect to win," said Detroit head coach Mike Babcock. Detroit fell to 19-15-4 as the guest and is playing the middle portion of a three-game road trip tonight. The Red Wings will complete the swing Wednesday night at Pittsburgh. Tuesdays game marks an excellent chance for Detroit to get back on track, as the Red Wings have won seven straight and 10 of their last 11 games against Buffalo.

Air Max 95 Pas Cher France . -- Martin Kaymer never lost sight of opportunity even amid so much evidence of trouble in the closing stretch Sunday at The Players Championship.SAN JOSE, Calif. - Ryan Miller withstood an early barrage and last-second flurry to carry Vancouver to a big win in San Jose.Miller made 34 saves and was on the right side of a replay review that determined a potential tying goal for the Sharks came an instant too late, giving the Canucks a 3-2 win Thursday night to open their California swing.I got fortunate that we ran out of time to play and it worked out in our favour, Miller said.With the goalie pulled, San Jose pushed furiously for a tying goal and appeared to get it when Tommy Wingels pass deflected off a defenceman and right to Joe Thornton by the side of the net. Thorntons shot hit off Millers blocker and trickled over the goal line, sending the crowd into a tizzy.But a replay review showed the puck crossed the goal line just after the clock expired, giving the Canucks the win.I was hopeful, because I heard the horn when I knew the puck was over there, Miller said. I just didnt know how close.Radim Vrbata, Alex Edler and Nick Bonino scored for the Canucks, who now head to Southern California for weekend games against Los Angeles and Anaheim.Vancouver won just two of 14 games last season against the three California teams, playing a big role in the Canucks missing the playoffs in their first season in the new Pacific Division.James Sheppard and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, who controlled the play but still lost in their final game before a grueling trip of seven road games in 11 days.

We didnt finish on them.Miller was tested early with San Jose getting four scoring chances in the opening minutes. He then stood tall again late, making a good save on Couture shortly before Thorntons final shot.The puck went in, it jusst happened a little late, Thornton said.dddddddddddd. We threw everything at them but couldnt get it in. It was so close, I couldnt tell. If only we have another half-second wed be all right. We feel like we let this one get away from us.The Canucks fell behind 2-1 midway through the second when Couture capped a pretty passing sequence on the power play with his team-leading seventh goal.Vancouver then scored twice in a span of less than 5 minutes to take the lead into the third. The equalizer came when Edler beat Niemi with a shot from the top of the circle for a power-play goal.The Canucks then took advantage of a break that came when Tomas Hertl broke his stick attempting a one-timer. That turnover keyed a rush by Alexandre Burrows, who carried the puck into the offensive zone before finding Bonino.Bonino skated around the stickless Hertl and beat Niemi for his team-leading seventh goal to give the Canucks a 3-2 lead.It proves our resiliency, Bonino said. We come in and play probably two of our worst periods of the year but we had Millsy back there shutting the door and keeping us in the game.The Sharks scored first for the 10th time in 14 games this season when the newly formed third line struck midway through the first period. Tyler Kennedy, making his season debut after being sidelined by an upper-body injury in training camp, kept the puck in near the blue line and fed Hertl, who found Sheppard for the goal.But San Jose gave that lead back when Thornton couldnt keep a puck in the offensive zone along the boards. That led to a 2-on-1 break and Vrbata beat Niemi with 7.7 seconds to play.NOTES: Burrows returned from a three-game suspension for a hit to the head of Montreal D Alexei Emelin. ...
