BERLIN -- Son Heung-mins second half strike was enough for Bayer Leverkusen to win 1-0 at Borussia Moenchengladbach and consolidate second place in the Bundesliga on Friday. Brett Hull Jersey . Son scored in the 62nd minute, when he let fly from outside the penalty area to send the ball inside the top right corner. Three Gladbach defenders failed to close down the South Korean. "There werent many goal chances. The game was going to be decided on a mistake and unfortunately we made it," Moenchengladbach captain Martin Stranzl said. Max Kruse was denied an equalizer by Bernd Leno in the 77th, three minutes before the Leverkusen keeper kept out another attempt by Juan Arango. Two Leverkusen substitutes, one in each half, were booked for slowing down play. "Theres still room for improvement," Leverkusen captain Simon Rolfes said. "Other teams will get better as well." Leverkusen was 10 points behind league leader Bayern Munich before the rest of the weekends games, while Moenchengladbach remained provisionally fifth after its third defeat in a row since the winter break. "Its a pity. A scoreless draw would have been fair," said Moenchengladbach coach Lucien Favre, whose side hasnt won in five games. "We have one or two things to correct. Well see. I have to turn it around." Bayern can restore its 13-point advantage with a win at Nuremberg on Saturday. Tony Twist Blues Jersey .ca MLB Power Rankings, the third consecutive week that the As have held top spot and the third straight week that they have been one ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays. Carter Hutton Blues Jersey . - Nikita Jevpalovs scored 6:22 into the second overtime as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada edged the visiting Rimouski Oceanic 2-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff action. . Hes even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards. So far, hes playing like his picture.San Joses Joe Pavelski leads the Western Conference with 11 power-play goals, but he may not get a chance to add to that total against the disciplined Calgary Flames. Winners of two straight, the Flames will try to become the first team in 25 years to go three consecutive games without taking a penalty Saturday night in San Jose. After being short-handed once in a 6-5 loss to Florida last Friday, Calgary (23-18-3) didnt take a penalty in a 1-0 win in Vancouver the next night. It was the same story Thursday in Arizona, where the Flames again stayed out of the penalty box in a 4-3 victory. We cant give teams opportunities on the power play, especially on this road swing, said Calgary left wing Lance Bouma, who has five assists in the last three games. Were going to make sure were doing the right things and not taking stupid penalties. This is only the ninth time since 1989-90 a team has gone back-to-back games without taking a penalty, and no team in that span has done it in three consecutive contests. Not having to play a man down has made things easier for goaltender Joni Ortio, who may get a third consecutive start in goal given his recent success. Ortio appeared in nine games as a rookie in 2013-14, and stopped 36 shots for his first career shutout in his season debut against the Canucks. The 23-year-old made 27 saves against the Coyotes and appears to be Calgarys best option in goal. Karri Ramo is close to returning from injury but is 0-3-0 with a 4.06 goals-against average in his last four starts, while Jonas Hiller has a 4.16 GAA in losing all three starts this month. The Flames have lost seven of nine in San Joose, but won 2-0 on Nov. Tony Twist Jersey. 26 in the seasons first matchup. The Sharks (24-16-5) won 3-2 in Calgary just over a week later on Patrick Marleaus tiebreaking goal in the third. Marleau went the next 16 games without a goal before scoring in Thursdays 3-1 win over Toronto, the opener of a season-high seven-game homestand. Its important to get (wins) anywhere, Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. But it has been a while since weve won (at home), and we know whats ahead of us, the stretch that were going to face. Antti Niemi stopped 24 shots for a seventh win in his last nine home starts. He has allowed two goals or less in four of his last five games and is 5-1-0 with a 1.67 GAA against Calgary since 2012-13. The Flames, whose five-game road swing leads into the All-Star break, are seeking their first four-game road winning streak since reeling off six in a row Feb. 12-March 5, 2009. Mikael Backlund scored in a fourth straight game Thursday, and the Flames added three more goals in the third period to seal the victory. The late scoring binge is nothing new for Calgary, which had 13 shots on goal in the third period after totaling 12 in the first two. The Flames have the NHLs best third-period goal differential, outscoring opponents 54-29. They have one of the leagues worst marks in both first-period and second-period goal differentials at minus-10 and minus-eight, respectively. Our conditioning has something do with it. Just the way we work and apply pressure all night long, Bouma said. We play the same way if were down or were up. We got to make sure we play that way if were going to have success.
