NEW YORK -- Mets ace Matt Harvey took the next step in his rehabilitation from right elbow surgery, increasing his throwing distance Friday from 90 to 120 feet. Harvey said his target date for throwing off a mound is June 10. "Any sort of progress were making -- obviously right now its being able to move back and throw from a greater distance -- is a step in the right direction," he said. The right-hander said he makes 20 throws at a time from the rehab distance but needs many more as he warms up. While he feels ready to ramp up the rehab and would like to pitch in a major league game this season, Harvey understands the journey back is a long one and he is following the protocol. Harvey had Tommy John surgery Oct. 22, about two months after New York said the first-time All-Star had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. Recovery from that injury generally takes 12 to 18 months. The plan is for Harvey is to throw at 120 feet for three weeks then move back to 150 feet off flat ground before he throws from the mound. "The process is right where it needs to be and Im extremely happy with how everything feels and how everything is going," he said. "Im excited to move forward." Also, the Mets recalled shortstop Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas and inserted him into the starting lineup for their series opener against Philadelphia. "Dont mistake it, we hope that Wilmer gives us some offence but hes got to catch the baseball, too," manager Terry Collins said. Flores, who was signed as a shortstop but played the other three infield positions the last two years, has committed seven errors in 25 games at shortstop with Las Vegas this year. Collins said Flores problem has been throwing the ball to first base. Omar Quintanilla was designated for assignment to make room for Flores. The Mets hope Flores can lift their sagging offence, which hadnt scored in 23 innings entering Friday and was ranked near the bottom of the NL in slugging percentage (.332) and on-base percentage (.300). The Mets were tied with San Diego for the league worst in homers with 20. The 22-year-old Flores was batting .307 with five homers and 25 RBIs for the 51s. First baseman Lucas Duda was out of the lineup Friday because of the stomach flu. Starting shortstop Ruben Tejada is hitting .183 with two extra-base hits and 21 strikeouts in 82 at-bats. Quintanilla batted .207 with one extra-base hit in 29 at-bats. Artturi Lehkonen Jersey .

In Los Angeless 6-0 thumping of the Canadiens on Tuesday night, Jones became the first Kings goaltender to ever record a shutout against Montreal. And he did it in just his third career NHL game. Jones is now 3-0 with a 0.65 goals-against-average and a .973 save percentage. The shutout was also his second in as many nights. "Maybe I didnt expect to get that kind of start, but I dont want to stop here," said Jones. "I want to make sure I keep working. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Were playing some good teams." The 23-year-old from North Vancouver, B.C., earned his first win in his NHL debut last Tuesday, beating the Anaheim Ducks after a nine-round shootout. He followed up by making 16 saves to blank the New York Islanders on Saturday. "Its been nice to get wins in different ways," said Jones. "Thats the sign of a good team, we get wins in different situations." Jones got the start in Montreal in place of Ben Scrivens, who leads the league in save percentage. And Scrivens is normally backup goaltender to Jonathan Quick, whos out with a groin injury. With Quick expected back in a couple of weeks, Jones performance could force head coach Darryl Sutter to make a tough decision down the road. "Whenever Im called upon, theyre going to get my best," said Jones. They got his best on Tuesday at the Bell Centre, where Jones stopped all 30 shots he faced, including a seven-shot opening game flurry with the Canadiens on the power play. "If Jones wasnt making the saves he was making, it could have been a completely different ball game right off the start," said Anze Kopitar, who rewarded his netminder with a goal late in the first period, his ninth of the year. "He came up big for us. That game could have gone the complete opposite way." L.A.s (20-7-4) victory extended its winning streak to four games, snapping Montreals 10-game point streak in the process. The Canadiens (19-10-3) hadnt lost in regulation since Nov. 16, when they were beaten 1-0 by the New York Rangers. They came into Tuesdays game on an 11-1-2 run in which they hadnt conceded more than three goals in a game. But they conceded six on the Kings 30 shots. Carey Price, whose save percentage dipped to .dddddddddddd934 after the game, made 12 saves on 16 shots and was pulled midway through the second frame. His replacement Peter Budaj didnt fare much better, allowing two goals on 14 shots. "These games are miserable," said Canadiens defenceman Josh Gorges. "The only thing you can do is get out of this room here, take a look in the mirror, and ask yourself, Did I do what I was supposed to do tonight? Theres not one guy in this room that can say that he did. "We have to understand that this is how hard it is in this league. We have to use it as motivation going forward." The Canadiens came out of the gate with intense pressure, but couldnt find an answer to Joness stellar play. Jordan Nolan opened the scoring for Los Angeles at 7:03 of the first period, jumping on a big rebound after a Willie Mitchell shot from the blue-line bounced off of Prices pads and landed on Nolans stick. Kopitar added to the lead with only 13 seconds remaining in the period, catching Price out of position after winning the faceoff to his right. "We had a quick huddle just before the faceoff," said Kopitar. "We didnt draw it up quite as good as we executed, but well take it. "That was obviously a big momentum changer." The Kings opened the second period ready to build on that momentum. Alec Martinez scored early in the period after Montreal defender Alexei Emelin lost the puck in his skates in front of the net. Tyler Toffoli put the Kings ahead 4-0 at 5:28, firing home a big rebound past a sprawling Price, who was pulled after the goal. Jake Muzzin added to the lead on the power play at 8:14, and Justin Williams made it 6-0 with his team-leading 11th goal at 18:28. Jones was thankful his team did what they could to preserve his shutout bid late in the game. "The guys didnt stop playing even though we had that six-goal lead," said Jones. "Guys continued to block shots and get in lanes, and take away sticks in front of the net." Notes: L.A. hadnt beaten the Canadiens in seven encounters dating back to March 2003. The Kings last win in Montreal was in 1999. a Francis Bouillon was back in the lineup after missing six of the last 10 games as a healthy scratch. Bouillon got the nod in place of Douglas Murray.
