After scoring just six goals in their first 10 road games this season, the Sharks beat the New Jersey Devils 6-3 at Prudential Center on Friday and followed that with a 6-5 loss to the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

Anthony Duclair, Ryan Carpenter, and Jacob MacDonald gave San Jose a brief 3-2 lead, and the Sharks answered four consecutive Rangers goals with late Fabian Zetterlund and Alexander Barabanov strikes to make things interesting.

That’s a moral victory, but not winning hockey though.

“We turned it over. Just the turnovers, just frustrating. You got a puck on your stick in critical areas, and we just made poor decisions. That really was a story,” Sharks coach David Quinn lamented. “The other piece of it is, we’ve got to finish our tracking and our backchecks.”
