NHL roundup: James Reimer records shutout as Sharks blank Flyers

October 24 – James Reimer made 30 saves for his 26th career shutout, while Erik Karlsson and Steven Lorentz scored second-period goals, as the visiting San Jose Sharks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 Sunday night.

Reimer was strong when needed — stopping a Philadelphia push within the first minute of the game, then halting all 17 shots he faced in the third period to record his first shutout since Nov. 28, 2001, at Chicago.

Meanwhile, the Sharks — who won for just the second time in eight games this season and split a four-game East Coast trip — broke through while owning a 12-5 shot advantage during the second period. Coming into the contest, San Jose, which also got an empty-netter from Nico Sturm, had been outscored 16-4 in the second this season.
