Last season, it took 2 1/2 months for the San Jose Sharks to earn their fifth home win. Cheap Swell Water Bottle .It would take a losing streak of epic proportion at the SAP Center at San Jose for that to happen in 2016-17.The Sharks will try to remain perfect at home Thursday night when they face the Calgary Flames, who hope to regain some scoring touch and avoid a season-worst third consecutive loss.San Jose is the only team in the Western Conference yet to lose on home ice this season, posting a 4-0-0 record. The Sharks dropped to 2-4-0 on the road with a 3-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday.I loved our start, said Sharks coach Peter DeBoer, whose team led 1-0 after 20 minutes. But thats the thing we need to work most at: When were on top of teams, instead of getting an extra goal and putting them away, we let them hang around.The Sharks have trailed once at home in 2016-17. San Jose allowed a goal 82 seconds into its matchup with the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 12 before rallying for a 2-1 win.A stout defense, led by Brent Burns and goaltender Martin Jones, has been the backbone of the teams success in San Jose. Last season, the Sharks didnt notch their fifth home win until their 15th game, beating Philadelphia on Dec. 30.Coming off a campaign in which he set career-bests for goals (27), assists (48) and points (75), Burns hasnt slowed down in his 13th NHL season. In 10 games, the 31-year-old has 10 points (three goals, seven assists), tying him with Minnesotas Ryan Suter and Montreals Shea Weber for the most among defensemen.In five games against the Flames last season, Burns was the Sharks leader with five assists and seven points. He will be looking for his fourth straight multi-point game against Calgary.Jones has been in net for all four wins in front of the home crowd this season, allowing just four goals on 95 total shots. Overall, Jones is 4-1-0 with a 2.73 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in his career against Calgary. In his only career start against the Flames in San Jose, he surrendered two third-period goals en route to a 5-2 victory on Nov. 28, 2015.After scoring 11 goals during a three-game winning streak from Oct. 24-28, the Flames (4-6-1) have been limited to one goal in a home loss to the Washington Capitals on Sunday and again at Chicago on Tuesday in the opener of four-game road trip. The trek includes matchups with all three California teams.We need to stick to our system here, Flames forward Alex Chiasson said following a 5-1 loss to the Blackhawks. We cant fall behind. Weve got to regroup here. Were playing three teams in our division, so were going to have to look at what we did ... and fix a couple things.One part of the game Calgary needs to fix is special teams. The Flames are 4-for-41 with the man advantage this season, and they have surrendered at least one power-play goal in four straight games.We have to shoot the puck more, and weve got to execute, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said Tuesday. We cant be fumbling around and think were going to have a good power play. Weve got to get a little more fluid.Michael Frolik scored short-handed against one of his former teams Tuesday. Frolik leads the Flames with five goals and is tied with Mikael Backlund and Johnny Gaudreau for the team lead with seven points.Mark Giordano was the top scorer for Calgary against San Jose last season with a goal and five assists in five contests. He has failed to register a point in four straight games, and he has just one goal and four assists in 11 games so far.If Brian Elliott gets the start in goal for Calgary, he will be looking for his third straight win in San Jose. In his only game at the Shark Tank last season while with the St. Louis Blues, Elliott turned away all 37 shots faced in a 1-0 victory on March 22. Swell Bottle Sale . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. Swell Traveler Uk . Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. http://www.swellbottleuk.com/sale-swell-bottle-liberty-uk.html .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- ?If No. 15 Purdue continues to shoot 3-pointers with the accuracy it did Saturday against Morehead State, the Boilermakers will have the potential for a special season.Freshman guard Carsen Edwards scored 16 points, and Purdue made 15 of 29 attempts from 3-point range -- 11 in the first half -- on the way to a 90-56 victory.When you look at their big men (Caleb Swanigan and Isaac Haas), you kind of have to start there, but you learn quickly that Purdue is a very balanced team, Morehead State acting head coach Preston Spradlin said. When defending them, you have to pick your poison.The Boilermakers (6-2), coming off a Wednesday loss at No. 14 Louisville in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, used a 15-0 first-half run to stretch a 10-9 lead to 25-9, and Purdue continued to pull away.Dakota Mathias added 14 points, Swanigan and P.J. Thompson had 13 each for Purdue and the 7-foot-2 Haas had 11 points and five rebounds.Miguel Dicent had 11 points for Morehead State (2-5), which played without coach Sean Woods, who has been suspended with pay since Nov. 22, when the university launched an official investigation into Woods treatment of players.Purdue made 11 of 20 from 3-point range during the first half when it built a 47-25 lead. Carsen Edwards, who made his first start in place of slumping Vince Edwards, and Mathias made four 3-pointers each in the first half.There are a lot of people on the team who are able to shoot the ball, Carsen Edwards said. The shots were falling today, and people were hot, so we tried to keep getting the ball to the hot hand and keep making shots.Thompson said that the 6-8 Swanigan, who had nine rebounds, and Haas always will be the focus of the Purdue offense.The bigs are our bread and better, said Thompson, who was 3 of 5 from 3-point range. We definitely want to work inside-out. It looks like the more we get the ball inside, the easier it is for us shooters, because (Swanigan and Haas) get so much attention with double teams. Then, we get wide open 20-footers.Purdue coach Matt Painter was most pleased that the Boilermakers, who had been averaging 15.7 turnovers, were guilty of only nine Saturday, including three during the final 20 minutes.We have been emphasizing turnoverss the whole season, and today really was no different in terms of how other teams have played us defensively, Painter said. Swell Wood Bottle. . We also have had people not zone us, and we still have had turnovers. Today was a good sign that we bounced back after a loss on the road (at Louisville) and played well.The Boilermakers played without fifth-year graduate student transfer point guard Spike Albrecht, who suffered a back injury in a Nov. 18 victory against Georgia State and battled through the pain in the Louisville game. Painter said Albrecht is out indefinitely.BIG PICTUREMorehead State: With Woods suspended indefinitely, the Eagles are a distracted basketball team, and it shows as their losing streak reached five on Saturday, including 0-3 for acting coach Spradlin.Purdue: Its a byproduct of opposing defenses centering their attention on Boilermaker big men Swanigan and Haas, but Purdue entered this game leading the Big Ten in 3-point field goal shooting percentage at 41.8 and made 55 percent from beyond the arc during the opening half on Saturday.POLL IMPLICATIONSWhile it did not play well until late in the game Wednesday at No. 14 Louisville, Purdue has a chance to move up in the next AP Top 25 after playing very well in Saturdays 34-point victory. Only 2016 NCAA champion Villanova and 2013 NCAA champ Louisville have beaten the Boilermakers.LINEUP CHANGEWith junior forward Vince Edwards struggling, Painter inserted freshman guard Carsen Edwards -- no relation to Vince -- into Saturdays starting lineup, and the first-year player made 6 of 12 shots, including 4 of 7 from 3-point range.He gave us some additional quickness, Painter said of Carsen Edwards. He can drive and shoot it. Sometimes, you are just searching for things at this time of the season. Vince and Carsen will continue to play a lot.UP NEXTMorehead State: The Eagles do not play until going to Lipscomb on Dec. 10.Purdue: The Boilermakers travel to New York City for a Tuesday night game against Arizona State in the Jimmy V. Classic.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25. ' ' '
