San Jose 9-5-2-0 6-2-2-0 3-3-0-0 W3


Patrick Marleau scored the game-winning goal and added two assists while Antero Niittymaki made 32 saves to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 6-3 win over the visiting Los Angeles Kings Monday.

Marleau and Dany Heatley sandwiched third-period goals around a Jarret Stoll marker for Los Angeles and Joe Pavelski added another to put the game away after San Jose took a 3-2 lead into the final frame. Ryane Clowe, Torrey Mitchell and Scott Nichol also scored for the Sharks.

Clowe and Mitchell scored within a 1:15 span late in the first period and Nichol made it 3-1 10:35 into the second. The Sharks thought they had another when Mitchell beat Jonathan Bernier on a breakaway. However, that goal was disallowed because Ryan Smyth slipped a puck past Niittymaki earlier in the sequence, but the play was never whistled dead by the referee.

Marleau eventually gave San Jose that two-goal lead when he scored on the power play 2:39 into the third period, snapping the Kings’ streak of 22 consecutive penalty kills.

Scott Parse tallied his first for Los Angeles to open the scoring and Bernier finished with 28 stops.
