Sharks Lose At Home For First Time In 11 Months

By  | 

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Dion Phaneuf scored on a deflected shot with 3:57 to play, and the Calgary Flames handed the San Jose Sharks their first regulation home loss in 11 months, 3-2 Thursday night.

Craig Conroy scored Calgary's first goal, and the veteran forward also kept the puck in San Jose's end to set up the winning score. Daymond Langkow eventually got the puck to Phaneuf, and his shot glanced off Marc-Edouard Vlasic's stick for the star defenseman's first goal in 26 games since Nov. 11.

Ryane Clowe and Joe Thornton scored for the Sharks, who hadn't lost at home in regulation since last Feb. 14, a span of 31 games (28-0-3). The streak matched the second-longest in NHL history.
