Patrick Marleau scored two goals, Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves and the San Jose Sharks snapped their three-game winless streak with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.
Joe Thornton also scored, and Joe Pavelski extended his
goal-scoring streak to four games as the Sharks finally figured out
how to beat longtime nemesis Dwayne Roloson, the Edmonton goalie
who's been responsible for several of San Jose's most significant
home losses over the past four seasons.
Marleau, the Sharks' captain and All-Star center, scored the
go-ahead goal short-handed on a setup pass from Mike Grier early in
a fight-filled second period.
