NHL.com @NHL

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Antti Niemi stopped 41 shots for his fourth shutout of the season and made Logan Couture's first-period, short-handed goal stand up as the San Jose Sharks beat the New York Rangers 1-0 Sunday for their sixth straight win.

Niemi and the Sharks defence were the difference in this one, unlike in the first meeting between the teams, won 9-2 by San Jose on Oct. 8. Niemi, who has 27 NHL shutouts, was particularly strong during a Rangers power play early in the third.

San Jose, tied with Anaheim atop the Pacific Division, is 11-2-1 in its past 14. In a 12-game stretch against Eastern Conference opponents that ends Tuesday at home versus Florida, the Sharks are 9-1-1.
