.com) - The Chicago Blackhawks will some additional help when they try to extend their longest winning streak of the season. Forward Patrick Sharp is expected to return to the Blackhawks lineup on Tuesday night as the club aims to extend a six-game win streak in a matchup with the New Jersey Devils. Sharp has missed each of Chicagos past 14 games with a lower-body injury suffered on Nov. 4 versus Montreal. He has three goals and six assists in 13 games after logging 34 goals and a career-high 78 points in 82 games last season. The hard part for Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville is figuring out where to slot Sharp in the lineup given how well his team has played as of late. During Mondays practice, Quenneville shifted Sharp to the right wing and had him play on a line with Bryan Bickell and Andrew Shaw. It gives us some options and helps our power play. Its good to get him back playing as well, said Quenneville of Sharps return. Even without the services of Sharp, the Blackhawks have won six straight for the first time since Nov. 21-30 of last year and picked up their ninth win in 10 tries with Saturdays 3-1 decision over the Nashville Predators. Marian Hossa scored twice and Brandon Saad had a goal and an assist, while Scott Darling made 32 saves in his fourth career start. With the win, the Blackhawks sit second in the Central Division, one point ahead of Nashville and one back of St. Louis. Were excited that weve put ourselves in the spot we were hoping to be after 20 games, but we shouldnt be satisfied, Quenneville said. We should be looking to improve off of these levels, which will make us a good team. Chicago plays the second of four straight on the road and will try to win seven straight for the first time since April 6-19, 2013. Darling is expected to get another start tonight and is 3-1-0 on the season with a 1.73 goals against average and .943 save percentage. The Devils return home following last nights 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes, a game that featured another great performance by the ageless Jaromir Jagr. The 42-year-old tallied a goal and an assist, passing Marcel Dionne for sole possession of fifth place on the NHLs all-time points list with 1,772. The Czech superstar also became the 15th player to skate in his 1,500th career game and his goal was the 710th of his career. This is all special, Devils head coach Pete DeBoer said of Jagr. You might not ever see this again. Adam Henrique netted the game-winning goal and Cory Schneider was spectacular, stopping 39-of-40 shots fired his way for the Devils, who entered the game with losses in six of their last seven games. Scott Gomez supplied his first two assists of the season. New Jersey picked up the win despite forwards Mike Cammalleri (muscle injury), Patrik Elias (groin) and Travis Zajac (lower body/illness), as well as defenseman Adam Larsson (flu), not making the trip to Carolina. Schneider, meanwhile, started for the 27th time in New Jerseys 28 games this season and it wouldnt be a surprise to see him go again tonight. He is 2-2-1 with a 3.44 GAA and .901 save percentage in six lifetime meetings with Chicago, including five starts. Backup Scott Clemmensen has faced Chicago only once and was blitzed for six goals on 32 shots on Dec. 8, 2013 in a loss with Florida. The Devils lost both of their meetings with the Blackhawks last season and Chicago has won five of the last seven encounters. Amari Cooper Raiders Jersey

. -- New York Yankees newcomer Masahiro Tanaka has finished up his first throwing session with the team.UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders have been on the losing end of many roller-coaster finishes this season. So Lubomir Visnovskys overtime goal lifting them to a wild 5-4 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs was especially satisfying. The veteran defencemans unassisted tally 1:55 into extra time ended a see-saw contest Thursday night in which the teams combined for five goals in an 8 1/2-minute span of the third period. The winner came after Anders Lee scored two tying goals for the Islanders in his first game of the season. Evgeni Nabokov made 18 saves for New York, which improved to 5-1-2 in their last eight games against Toronto. "Our singular focus is the task at hand, one period at a time and one game at a time," said Islanders coach Jack Capuano, whose squad will be without top scorer and captain John Tavares for the rest of the season with a knee injury suffered at the Olympics. "That team is big and strong. I like the fact we kept moving forward tonight." Joffrey Lupul put Toronto ahead 4-3 with just over six minutes left in the third before Lee knotted the score at 17:20 with his second of the game. Lupuls 18th of the season at 13:54 came just over a minute after Lee tied it at 3 with his first goal. Lees power-play goal came after Dion Phaneuf had put Toronto ahead 3-2 at 11:26. Phaneufs sixth goal of the season came less than three minutes after Paul Ranger tied it at 2. "You cant win in this league giving goals as gifts," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. "They tried to grind and we tried to outskill them. They did a better job." After Torontos Phil Kessel opened the scoring at 6:53 of the first with his 32nd goal of the season, New Yorks Michael Grabner scored two short-handed goals 48 seconds apart late in the period. The Islanders held that lead entering the third before the outburst by both teams. Kessel, who scored five goals for Team USA in Sochi, took a pass in the high slot before whipping the puck past Nabokov. Only Washingtons Alex Ovechkin has more goals than Kessel. Grabner answered for the Islanders with his first short-handed score at 15:53 off an assist from Casey Cizikas. The Austrian forward then took advantage of a misplay by Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier, intercepting an attempted pass by the netminder in the crease and sliding the puck into the empty net att 16:41.

. The goal was the 11th of the season for Grabner, who tied Kessel in goals at the Olympics. "Its a game of mistakes, but at least we got a point out of it," Bernier said. The last Islanders player to score two short-handed goals on the same power play was Ziggy Palffy, 53 seconds apart on April 17, 1999. "We kept coming and obviously had a big shift to score that tying goal," Grabner said. "Everyone fed off each other tonight. We still have a lot of games left. Hopefully we can keep it up." The Islanders (23-30-8), had lost seven of eight games heading into the Olympic break. They were also without forwards Frans Nielsen (hand) and Matt Martin (lower body). Both had played all 60 previous games this season, while Tavares had missed only one contest. The Islanders earlier this week recalled the entire top line from AHL Bridgeport: Lee, Ryan Strome and Mike Halmo, who made his NHL debut. Lee played two games for the Islanders last season with one goal and one assist. Strome, who assisted on Lees second tying goal, has one goal and four assists in 16 games with the Islanders this season. Nielsen, who has a career-best 18 goals, ended his streak of 189 consecutive regular-season games played. He suffered a hand injury in New Yorks last game before the break on Feb. 8. Martin had played 121 straight games and also was hurt in the Feb. 8 home loss to Colorado. The Maple Leafs (32-22-7) came in 11-2-1 before the break. Toronto is battling Montreal and Tampa Bay in the closely packed Atlantic Division as the Leafs trying to reach the playoffs for the second straight season after missing every year since 2004. The Leafs had won three straight and four of their last five at Nassau. But Nabokov was strong throughout, stopping Troy Bodie with his glove four minutes into the second and denying James Van Riemsdyk -- who had three assists -- in front midway through the middle period. NOTES: The Islanders are just 9-14-8 at home this season. They had lost six straight at Nassau Coliseum, including the last two before the break against Calgary and Colorado. ... It was the third and final meeting between the teams this season and the only contest at Nassau Coliseum. The teams split two games at the Air Canada Centre. ... The Islanders are 20-7-3 when they score at least three goals, and are 3-23-5 when they do not.
