Spokane, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Przemek Karnowski scored 18 points to lead No. 6 Gonzaga to a wire-to-wire 79-57 win over Santa Clara on Saturday. Four Bulldogs (16-1, 5-0 WCC) joined Karnowski in double figures. Kyle Wiltjer added 16, Kevin Pangos chipped in 13, and Byron Wesley and Domantas Sabonis each had 11. Gonzaga used its superior size to dominate down low, owning a 41-26 rebounding edge and 44-14 advantage in points in the paint. The Broncos (7-10, 2-4) were led by Matt Hubbard with 15 points. Jared Brownridge contributed 14. Hubbard was 5-of-9 from beyond the arc. Brownridges triple at the 12:37 mark of the first half started a run of seven made shots out of eight attempts for Santa Clara. Nate Kratchs layup cut Gonzagas early lead to one point, 30-29, but the Bulldogs padded their lead before the break. Gonzaga outscored Santa Clara 14-2 in the final 5 1/2 minutes of the half. The Broncos made just one of their last nine attempts from the field and went to the locker room trailing 44-31, not having scored since the 3:11 mark. Denzel Johnson and Hubbard hit triples on back-to-back possessions to trim Santa Claras deficit to 13 points with 11 1/2 minutes to go, but the Bulldogs responded with a 10-0 run to create more breathing room. A Wiltjer 3 started the run, and Sabonis scored four points. After Santa Claras 3s, the Broncos made just two of their final 13 shots from the floor as Gonzaga was able to maintain its comfortable lead.

"We try to accentuate the positives," said Randy Carlyle after a 4-2 loss to the Sharks, "but the big negative is we lost." It was the fifth straight defeat and six in the past seven games for the Leafs. Despite an engaged effort, they were beaten on this night by one of the leagues premier teams, San Jose now a winner in nine of the past 10 games. Discipline issues continued in the loss, but maybe more concerning for the Leafs were ongoing struggles to generate offence at even-strength, both goals coming via the leagues top-ranked home power-play. Toronto has scored just 18 even-strength goals in the past 14 games, held to two goals or fewer in 11 of those games. The Sharks outshot the Leafs by a wide 35-19 margin at even-strength, scoring three of their four goals in such situations, including the eventual winner from Joe Pavelski, a sequence that saw Torontos fourth line pinned in its own zone for nearly two minutes. Certainly dinged by a rising tide of games missed due to injuries, suspensions and other maladies - they were without Nazem Kadri due to a death in the family, Cody Franson to an injury and Tyler Bozak for most of the night with an upper-body injury - the Leafs have nonetheless struggled to find depth offensively all season. In fact, 84 per cent of their total offence has come from just seven players, one of those being Dave Bolland, who hasnt played in over a month. Lacking much punch from their defence, theyve also gotten very little in the way of contributions from their bottom-6 forwards. Tuesdays fourth line of Colton Orr, Jerred Smithson and Frazer McLaren, for instance, has combined for zero points all season. Perhaps the key to unlocking more consistent success offensively is the Leaf forecheck, productive with pressure during an energetic opening 10 minutes of the second frame - theyd be rewarded for those efforts with a pair of power-plays, scoring on both. "The forecheck creates offensive zone time, it creates and draws penalties, creates scoring chances, wears opposition down," Carlyle said. "We have stressed that weve got to do a better job of getting in there and establishing a forechecking game and establishing offensive zone time. Weve been talking about it. And there are periods of games that we do it very well." But as has been the case throughout the opening two months of the season and more specifically during a dreadful November, which saw them win just twice in regulation, the Leafs have been unable to establish such pressure for a complete night. "We have spurts where were good, I think we play well," said Mason Raymond, who scored the first Leaf goal and his 10th this season. "But again its only spurts. We need to figure out how to put those spurts together into 60 minutes." Five Points 1. Discipline A focal point of concern for Carlyle entering the game, discipline became an issue once more on this night, the Leafs yielding four power-plays while drawing just three themselves. Unhappy with Andrew Desjardins body-check on Smithson midway through the opening period, McLaren drew a roughing penalty and while the Sharks wouldnt score with that man advantage they would grab control of the period thereafter. Theyd score once at even-strength on a goal from former Leaf Mike Brown before adding a power-play marker from Joe Thornton during a five-on-three advantage; Raymond and Jay McClement called for hooking and tripping respectively. "That took momentum totally for the period in their favour," Carlyle said of the penalties. "Disciplines a huge part," said Raymond. "Youre killing penalties, youre not playing offence and youre playing in your own zone so were kind of shooting ourselves in the foot there." The Leafs have taken 125 minor penalties this season, second most in the league. 2. Busy Outings James Reimer has faced an average of 36 shots per game in his 12 full starts this season (he left one start after 32 seconds because of injury). But in spite of the heavy nightly workload, Reimer, who faced 40 shots against the Sharks, refuses to be consumed with frustratiion.dddddddddddd "The only reason you get frustrated is if youre focusing on what other people are doing or not doing," Reimer said. "And thats not in my job description. My job description is to stop the puck and do the best I can to give the boys a chance, so whether were giving up 50 [shots] a night or 10 [shots] a night thats what youve got to do. "If were giving up shots because some players arent playing well or maybe were not playing well as a team thats irrelevant. Theres games where Im not going to play well and I dont want guys jumping down my throat because I didnt play well or play well for a couple games. Its not how it goes. We each work our butts off, we support each and we believe in each other and thats the only thing you worry about. I dont worry about what other guys are doing or how many shots [Im facing]." Reimer is now 6-3-0 when making 30 saves or more this season. 3. Raymond Tied for the team lead in November scoring with seven points, Mason Raymond has already matched the 10 goals he scored all of last season with the Canucks. A bargain free agent find at $1 million for one season, Raymond has 19 points in 28 games, third on the Leafs in scoring this season. The most striking difference for the 27-year-old between this season and last is opportunity. Raymond is averaging a career-high of over 18 minutes per game this year, his speed and pluck offensively a valued asset amid a string of early injuries and suspensions. Raymonds numbers this year in contrast with 2013 Year Games Goals Points Shooting % Minutes 2013-2014 28 10 19 14.3 18:10 2013 46 10 22 12.7 15:49 4. More on the Forecheck Following the opening frame, one that saw the Leafs down 2-0, Raymond harped on the need to "create a forecheck". After the game he expanded upon those thoughts. "I think theres a lot of factors that are going to add up to make a team more successful, but thats definitely one of them," he said of the forecheck. "I dont think anybody wants to be playing in their defensive zone if you can be playing in your offensive zone." "When you stick to the game-plan of just keeping things simple, getting pucks deep, getting a good forecheck, thats just kind of the template that I think most teams have when theyre successful in the league," added James van Riemsdyk. 5. Bad Month Over Phil Kessel finished the month of November with just six points in 13 games. It was among the worst months hes had in a Leafs uniform, just one assist to his name along with five goals. Only Nov. 2010 compares with the mild output he managed last month; Kessel had three goals and five points in 13 games en route to 64 points in 82 games. The 26-year-old scored his team-leading 15th goal against the Sharks on Tuesday, now riding a four-game point streak. Kessel sits 20th in league scoring, boasting 25 points this season.
