FORT WORTH, Texas -- IndyCar owner Ed Carpenter now drives his car only on ovals. He does it well. Carpenter stayed in front of Will Power during a two-lap shootout to win at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night after a late caution night wiped out his huge lead. The victory came two weeks after a late accident took away any chance to win the Indianapolis 500. "Its just good to bounce back," Carpenter said. "Nothing really totally makes up for missed opportunity at the Speedway. But at the same time, it always feels good to win, especially a place like this. ... This is a big win for us." On the final green-flag stop with 35 laps left, Carpenter beat polesitter and season points leader Power off pit road. Team Penske driver Power made things worse when he was penalized for speeding out of the pits. "Im just going too hard," said Power, who had his fourth drive-thru penalty in five races but kept the points lead. "I just go for race wins. Im not looking at points." Power was sixth, and Carpenter had a lead of about 18 seconds over Juan Pablo Montoya, when Takuma Satos engine blew and his car caught fire with seven laps left. While the top four cars stayed out during that caution, Power went in for fresh tires. That gave him the chance to make up some ground, and he made a big charge after the final restart to finish second, only a half-second back. With another lap, the outcome might have been different. "I dont know. Ed was awfully strong," Power said. "Hes an awesome driver and it would have been a good battle at the end. ... It was a lot of fun." Carpenters third career victory, all on ovals, came after leading 90 of 248 laps. After winning at Kentucky for Sarah Fisher Racing in 2011, he started his own team the next year and won the season finale at California. Carpenter was on the pole at Indy the last two seasons, and this year is leaving the road and street courses to Mike Conway. Conway won at Long Beach the second race this season and was in the cockpit for both races at Detroit last weekend. So this was the first race for Carpenter since the late crash at Indy with James Hinchcliffe. "It feels good. Theres no denying the fact that I was really mad after Indy," Carpenter said. "Its not that Im still mad at Hinch, but Im still mad at the situation and we lost an opportunity. ... Were just going to keep the intensity up and try to keep fighting for wins." Carpenter went to the high side to get around Power on lap 182, and within a lap had already pushed ahead by nearly a second. Power led 145 laps. Montoya finished third, ahead of Simon Pagenaud, Scott Dixon and Tony Kanaan -- the only drivers to finish on the lead lap. Helio Castroneves, the defending race winner and a four-time winner at Texas, was 10th. The race was 20 laps longer than last year when Castroneves won. At the end of 228 laps, the length of the 2013 race, Carpenter had a 13 1/2-second lead over Montoya. Indianapolis 500 champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, the Dallas-born driver who has said he "definitely, desperately" wants to win at Texas, had another tough weekend and only finished 135 laps before losing power and oil pressure. Since winning at Indy, Andretti Motorsport driver Hunter-Reay finished 16th and 19th at the dual races in Detroit and 19th at Texas. Marco Andretti, his teammate, finished last in the 22-car field after his own mechanical issues. Andretti started 17th and quickly moved into the top 10 after three laps before his engine blew and the car caught fire while he was trying to get back into the pits. He had to stop on the apron out of Turn 4, then hopped out of the car and walked back to his pit box. "This ones frustrating and this one really hurts for the championship too," said Andretti, who entered the weekend fifth in season points, two spots below Hunter-Reay.

After Mondays comments by Coach Claude Noel that its work first and skill second, and that more “A” games are needed, the Jets responded with a 47-shot effort. If not for terrific goaltending by Braden Holtby the Jets would have had two points in regulation. The players said the right things in the morning and went out and performed. Here are some of the comments after the morning skate. “Each guy has to be a difference maker.” - Olli Jokinen “Make yourself accountable first” – Zach Bogosian “React the right way. A lot of us can say we havent been good enough.” – Andrew Ladd Captain Ladd had three assists in the game on a line with Bryan Little (two goals, five on the season) and Devin Setoguchi. Littles first goal was shorthanded, the Jets first of the season and tied the game at one. The second period featured six goals (three apiece) after a scoreless first period. The Jets had three second period goals in the previous nine games. Mikhail Grabovski had opened the scoring, the eighth time in 10 games the Jets have surrendered the games first goal. Grant Clitsome with his first gave the Jets the lead before two by Alex Ovechkin regained the lead for Washington. Blake Wheeler on a line with Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele tied it with 39 seconds left in the period. Overall, the Jets fired 19 shots at Holtby in the second period. Washington again took the lead early in the third on a power play goal by Troy Brouwer. The Caps have the NHLs best power play and went 1-for-5 in the game. The Jets were 0-for-3 and have now gone five straight games without a power play goal after scoring one in each of the first five games. Little tied the game at 7:04, overtime did not produce a winner and it was off to the shootout. The Jets won a seven-round shootout Friday against St. Louis, but unlike Friday - when Ondrej Pavelec sstopped the last five Blues shooters - tonight it was the last four Washington shooters scoring to give the Caps the win in a six-round shootout.dddddddddddd. Martin Erat scored the deciding goal. For the Jets, in order, it was Wheeler (miss), Little (miss), Ladd (goal), Jokinen (goal), Setoguchi (goal), Kane (miss). It was Ladds fourth career three-assist game, while Ovechkin continues to feast on this franchise with 40 goals and 80 points in 54 games. From a Jets standpoint maybe its a good thing they only see him twice a year now. Kane led the Jets in ice time with a career-high 28:41. He had six shots on goal, two blocked and six that missed the net. Little also had six shots on goal and won 16 of 23 face-offs. Scheifele was 57 per cent in the face-off circle and probably had his best game as a pro. Michal Frolik also had six shots on goal. Much of the post-game talk had to do with missed opportunities. Over and above the 47 shots, the Jets had at least another 10 Grade-A chances that missed the net. Ladd talked about not finishing, Kane about creating a lot of scoring opportunities, Wheeler about the positives outweighing the negatives. Coach Noel followed his players up. “We had a lot of opportunities to go ahead in the game. It would have been good to take advantage of some of those good chances,” Noel said. He liked a lot about the game, from the leadership of Ladd to the physical game his team played. “I liked our line combos, we had good resiliency to keep coming back, we got offense from some people who were frustrated. We got a point and got a lot of better play from a lot of players.” General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff was a guest on TSN Jets after the first period and talked about needing more consistency from the team. As for the upcoming four-game road trip, he said: “Too often you look at the big picture. You cant win the big picture – you win whats in front of you.” That would be Thursday in Nashville (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The Jets finished the six-game home stand 2-3-1 and are now 4-5-1 on the season. ' ' '
