Karlsson scores to lift San Jose Sharks over Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 in overtime

BOSTON (AP) — Melker Karlsson scored 3:45 into overtime and Martin Jones made 34 saves in his third shutout of the season, giving the San Jose Sharks a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Joonas Donskoi set up the game-winner on a 2-on-1 with Karlsson, who took the cross-ice pass and shot high past goalie Steve Mason. Paul Martin also was credited with an assist.

It was the fifth straight road win for the Sharks, who improved to 4-0 on their six-game road trip and 8-3 away from home this season. San Jose has won each game by one goal during its road winning streak.

It also was the 13th win in 14 games for San Jose against the Flyers, and the Sharks’ eighth straight victory in Philadelphia. The Flyers last defeated the Sharks on home ice Dec. 21, 2000.
