WASHINGTON -- The San Jose Sharks used a tight-checking defense and solid goaltending to snap a three-game losing streak and get a lengthy road trip off to a positive start.Martin Jones stopped 24 shots and Brent Burns scored his fifth goal of the season to lead the Sharks past the Washington Capitals 3-0 on Tuesday night.Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Burns had second-period goals for the defending Western Conference champions, who scored only four goals during their three-game slide.That was a big win for us, just to kind of right the ship a little bit, Jones said. Weve had moments where weve been good, and today everything kind of came our way.It was Jones 14th career shutout and the first of the season for the Sharks, who were coming off a 5-0 loss at home to Pittsburgh.We defended really well. We didnt give up a lot of looks from the middle of the ice, which was huge for us, Jones said. That was a good bounce-back game for us.The game marked the beginning of a season-long swing through six cities for the Sharks.You always want to win that first one on the trip, start it off right, get the good mojo going, Burns said.Joe Thornton scored an empty-netter with 1:32 left, but by that time it was evident Washingtons five-game winning streak was done. San Jose blunted three power plays and has killed 27 of the last 28.I didnt think we played poorly at all, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. They did a really good job defending, so you had to really fight to get in the interior. I dont think we had the desperation we needed until the third period.Washington took 10 shots in the third period, none of which severely challenged Jones.We defended well, Jones said. The looks that they did get, those are the saves they expect you to make.It was the first shutout against Washington during the regular season since April 10.Vlasic broke the scoreless duel at 12:23 of the second period, notching his second goal of the season with a shot that deflected off Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner and past goaltender Braden Holtby.Burns made it 2-0 at 17:26 with a wrist shot from the right circle that whizzed inside Holtbys left shoulder. Burns had an unobstructed view of the net because Washingtons defense crowded low around Logan Couture, who passed to his wide-open teammate.The way they were playing, when they got that second goal I thought it would be a tough hole to come out of, Trotz said.That was more than enough backing for Jones, who came in with a 5-6 record and a 2.56 goals-against average. His last shutout came against Arizona on April 9.San Jose outshot the Capitals 9-4 during a first period in which each team failed to convert a power play. It was only the third time in 12 games that Washington didnt score in the first period.The Capitals were denied a chance to break on top with 11 minutes gone in the second period. Andre Burakovsky broke free down the right side and fired a wrist shot from the top of the circle that Jones trapped under his right arm.NOTESHoltbys four-game winning streak ended. He had a 1.98 GAA during the run. He made 20 saves in this one. ... San Jose improved to 25-9-2 against Washington. ... The Capitals fell to 5-2 against Western Conference foes. ... Washington star Alex Ovechkin was limited to four shots on goal. He had 12 points in his previous 14 games against the Sharks.UP NEXTSharks: Continue the road trip with a matchup against the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.Capitals: Hit the road after a three-game homestand to face the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Miami Marlins Jerseys .Y. -- Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers had no intention of changing his hard-hitting style before taking part in a disciplinary hearing for his illegal check to New Jersey forward Dainius Zubrus head. ASHBURN, Va. -- Matt Jones slipped on a yellow non-contact jersey at the Washington Redskins Monday morning practice as a precaution for the starting running backs separated left shoulder, though he was not happy about wearing it.Jones, the second-year pro expected to start for the Redskins this season, is adamant that he will be ready Monday night when Washington hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers in the season opener for both teams.They gave me this yellow jersey today just to be a little cautious, Jones said. But next practice Ill be out here full go. I feel great about everything -- pass blocking, taking a hit, giving a hit. Im just ready to be back out there.Jones was on the field after practice holding a blocking pad while teammate Chris Thompson repeatedly smacked into the pad. It was the first time Jones had joined his teammates on the practice field since sustaining a slight separation of the AC joint in his left shoulder during an Aug. 19 preseason game against the New York Jets.The team is optimistic enough that Jones can play in the Steelers game that it kept just three running backs on the roster after Saturdays initial cuts. Thompson and undrafted rookie free agent Robert Kelley were the others, while second-year player Mack Brown was cut and signed to the practice squad.Thats the intent right now, Washington coach Jay Gruden said of Jones playing against the Steelers. Were just bringing him along. Its going to be interesting to see how he does Wednesday and Thursday. ... That will tell a lot.The Redskins also welcomed back rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson, who practiced Sunday for the first time since organized team activities on May 25 and was in shoulder pads for the first time Monday.dddddddddddd. A sore left Achilles tendon has bothered Doctson all offseason.Washingtons first-round pick in 2016, No. 22 overall, Doctson was removed from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, but his status for the Steelers game remains in doubt.Im not going to step foot on (the field) Monday night, put the uniform on, run out there and get myself embarrassed, Doctson said. Weve got guys who are going to get it done. If somebody gets tired Im going to go in there and help out. Thats my position now.Gruden said Doctson went through individual drills on Monday and did some team drills, too. But the coach also wasnt ready to say Doctson will be active against Pittsburgh. His Achilles tendon didnt respond after a month off between minicamp ending in mid-June and training camp beginning in late July.Trepidation remains that Doctson could suffer a setback.The big thing is the more we push him, weve got to see how he recovers the next day, Gruden said. Tuesday will be a big day for him. Theyre off, but well see how hes doing and push him again Wednesday and see where hes at both physically and mentally. Then well make a decision later in the week.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
