SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Khari Stephenson broke a nearly yearlong scoring drought with two goals to help the San Jose Earthquakes beat the Houston Dynamo 3-0 on Sunday night. Stephenson, who last scored June 8 for Real Salt Lake, converted off a rare indirect free kick from deep inside Houstons penalty area in the first half, then converted from the penalty spot in the second half. Atiba Harris knocked in the rebound of his own header off the post for the clincher. It was the Earthquakes highest-scoring performance since their season opener. San Jose (3-4-4), which came into the game ranked 18th out of 19 MLS teams at 1.00 goals per match, won for the second time in three games. Houston (5-7-2) dropped its second straight game, both on the road. Riddled with injuries and national team absences, the Dynamo were playing for the fourth consecutive game with less than a full complement of 18 players. Dynamo goalkeeper Tally Hall made a pair of uncharacteristic mistakes to help San Joses cause. In the 36th minute, Hall picked up a back pass from teammate David Horst, giving the Earthquakes an indirect free kick just outside Houstons 6-yard box. Shea Salinas touched the ball into the path of Stephenson, who blasted home to the far post. Stephenson scored again in the 58th minute after teammate Steven Lenhart, making his first appearance since March 29 due to a sprained knee ligament, drew a penalty on Houston defender Corey Ashe. Harris finished the scoring in the 70th minute, taking advantage after Hall was caught outside of his own box trying to clear a long pass forward by San Jose defender Jordan Stewart. Harris outjumped Hall to head to ball toward goal, then won the race to touch home the rebound for his first goal since June 29. San Jose goalkeeper Jon Busch made six saves for his fourth shutout of the season. Cameron Meredith Jersey . -- Jonathan Vilmas season is over and his future on the football field is in doubt.

Dominik Kahun had both goals for Germany (0-2), who lost its opening match to Canada 7-2 on Thursday.SAN JOSE, Calif. - Nick Bjugstad was given fair warning that he could be part of the shootout gang. It helped get him into the right state of mind.Bjugstad scored twice during regulation and added the winning goal in the shootout as the Florida Panthers won their fourth straight in San Jose, beating the Sharks 3-2 on Thursday night.Knowing what youre going to do is the main thing, Bjugstad said. You dont think too much. Youre just trying to put the thing in the net.Florida coach Gerard Gallant said the decision was made easier because of Bjugstads productivity during the game.He was hot, Gallant said. I thought wed go with him. He was putting the puck in the net, and he hit a couple of posts, too.San Joses Patrick Marleau tied it with 33 seconds remaining in regulation, taking a pass from Joe Thornton and firing it past Roberto Luongo, who had stopped Marleaus penalty shot earlier in the third period.I was just trying to get it on the net as quickly as possible, Marleau said. I knew hed be at the near post, so I was looking for a spot.Luongo stopped 28 shots and won for the fourth time in his last five games against the Sharks. The Panthers swept the season series.Logan Couture ended a season-worst eight-game, goal-less streak with a power-play tally for the Sharks, who played at home for the first time in two weeks.Antti Niemi made 26 saves for the Sharks, who failed to win for the third time in their last four at home.Im pleased with the point, Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. It didnt look so good with a minute left. We were back on our heels a little bit in the third period.The Sharks opened a six-game homestand after becoming the first NHL team to play 16 of its first 21 games on the road. Thhe Sharks, who have scored two or fewer goals in seven straight, fell to 2-3-1 at home.dddddddddddd.Bjugstad opened the scoring 24 seconds in, redirecting a shot by Dmitry Kulikov past Niemi. Kulikov, playing after missing four games because of a knee injury, earned an assist in his third straight game.We got the first goal out of the way right away, Bjugstad said. Kuli made a great shot, and I was able to get my stick on it.The Sharks tied it early in the second period. Couture tapped in a loose puck in front of the net after Luongo blocked a couple of pokes by Joe Pavelski.Bjugstad scored with under three minutes to play in the second period on a power play. His slap shot from the top of the right circle flew past Niemi.Florida scored a power-play goal in a season-best fourth consecutive game.Those goals change games in this league, Bjugstad said. Its a big point for us to make sure were scoring goals on the power play and that were playing well on the penalty kill.The Panthers improved to 4-2-4 on the road and won for the second time in three games played in California. The Sharks are 3-6 in their past nine.NOTES: The Sharks had killed 19 of 21 penalties until Florida scored in the second period. ...
