ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Blues goalie Chad Johnson swears he wasn’t in a special zone or mindset. The San Jose Sharks might disagree.Johnson made 33 saves for his first shutout with St. Louis Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Authentic , helping the Blues beat the Sharks 4-0 on Friday night.“I don’t really think about being locked in or on,” Johnson said. “I don’t think about how I feel. You kind of go out there. You prepare. I prepare the same way every day. I just try to feel the same way or not feel at all.”Alex Pietrangelo, Ryan O’Reilly, Jaden Schwartz, and Alexander Steen scored. The Blues have won four of five games after winning just two of their first eight to start the season.“We’re rolling four lines good,” Pietrangelo said. “We’re using everybody in every situation. There just seems to be good jumps, so when every line is getting out there, it seems like there’s a lot of energy.”Johnson started just his third game of the season Vegas Golden Knights Hats Authentic , but his second straight. He improved to 2-2-0 with his first shutout since November 2016 with the Calgary Flames.“We’ve kind of been leaving our goalies out to dry,” Pietrangelo said. “They’ll make the first save. It’s our job to take care of the second ones. We’re doing a great job right now taking care of them.”Pietrangelo roofed a shot past goalie Aaron Dell with both teams down a man to open the scoring in the first period. Dell allowed four goals on 31 shots to fall to 1-2-2.“It’s been horrible,” Sharks center Logan Couture said about the team’s defense. “It’s not just the d-men, it’s forwards. It’s not good. It’s not good enough in American League level. It’s ugly right now.”San Jose lost its second consecutive game and was shutout for the second time this season.“The last two games haven’t been good,” Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said. “We’re not going to make more out of it than it is. We were playing some pretty good hockey up until the last two games.”In the second period, O’Reilly buried a feed from Jaden Schwartz for his team-leading eighth goal of the season to give him points in a career-best nine consecutive games. He is the first St. Louis player to register a nine-game point streak in his first season with the team since Doug Weight accomplished the feat Oct. 4-25, 2001.“He does the right thing in his preparation,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. “He’s working hard. He’s prepared. Mentally and physically he’s prepared to play the game.”Later in the second Custom Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys , Schwartz snapped a four-game scoring drought when he beat Dell on a pass from Tyler Bozak for his second goal of the season.Steen scored his fourth of the season 12:21 into the third period to push the St. Louis lead to 4-0.St. Louis failed to convert on four power play opportunities snapping a streak of six straight games with a power play goal.NOTES:Blues RW Vladimir Tarasenko extended his points streak to a season-best six games (four goals, four assists). … LW Nikita Soshnikov made his season debut after being sidelined with post-concussion syndrome to start the season. … San Jose has allowed at least three goals in nine consecutive games. … Sharks D Brent Burns played in 406th consecutive game, the longest streak among active players.UP NEXT:Sharks: Host Calgary on Sunday to open a six-game homestandBlues: Host Minnesota on Sunday. WASHINGTON — Two teams heading in opposite directions collide when the Nashville Predators face the Washington Capitals in a New Year’s Eve matinee Monday.The Predators are mired in a six-game skid after blowing a third-period lead in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Saturday. On top of that, Nashville has struggled away from home, dropping 10 straight road contests heading into Monday’s game — the start of a stretch of seven of eight games on the road.“We find ourselves losing a bunch in a row, and at times, that’s going to happen throughout the year,” Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis told the team’s website. “We’re going to have ups and downs; the injury bug or whatever it is. But Zach Bogosian Jersey Womens , we’re not here to make excuses. We’re going to prepare the same way and work hard. We know it will turn eventually, and when it does, we’ll come out a better team because of it.”Article continues below ...The Predators have not been able to light the lamp during their skid, with only 10 goals during the slide. Viktor Arvidsson has returned from injury, but Filip Forsberg remains out and Kyle Turris is day-to-day with a lower-body issue, hampering Nashville’s offensive attack.Those offensive woes counteract the fact that the Predators have allowed the second-fewest goals in the league.“We can’t lose six in a row, not in this league and not in this division, not with the parity there is John Moore Jersey Womens ,” Nashville defenseman Nick Bonino said. “We’ve just got to get better.”On the other hand, the Capitals are playing as well as any team in the NHL, and are doing it with contributions from everyone. Washington won its fourth straight Saturday, upending Ottawa 3-2 thanks to the first career goals from Madison Bowey and Tyler Lewington, and solid netminding from Pheonix Copley, not exactly household names.“It goes into the development process and just drafting the right type of players,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden told the team’s website, “and developing them in Hershey and then continuing to develop them here. It’s really an organizational job and a great job by our entire group.”Washington has won 16 of 19 to re-establish itself as a contender in a crowded Eastern Conference and done so while rarely using its true starting lineup. That will continue Monday as defenseman Matt Niskanen will miss a second straight game after a crash into the boards against Carolina. Fellow defenseman Brooks Orpik will be a game-time decision Chris Wagner Jersey Womens , after missing 27 games with a knee injury.Braden Holtby likely will get the start in net for the Capitals, though Copley certainly has held his own. The rookie goalie is 9-1-0 with a 2.37 GAA and a .921 save percentage in his last 11 starts, giving Washington confidence no matter who is between the pipes.“We’re extremely lucky to have two guys in this room who give us a chance to win,” forward Tom Wilson told reporters. “We have a pretty good team holding the fort down for us back there.”
