OTTAWA (AP) - Milan Michalek and Patrick Marleau scored power-play goals 1:18 apart in the second period to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.
Michalek scored his 17th goal 11:26 into the second, and Marleau got his 34th goal at 12:44 as San Jose took advantage of consecutive power plays after Ottawa defenseman Brian Lee had an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty added to his holding minor.
Brian Boucher made 23 saves for the NHL-leading Sharks, who ended a four-game winning streak one night earlier with a 4-1 loss in Detroit.
Mike Fisher scored a power-play goal in the first for Ottawa, which has lost four of five (1-3-1) following a season-high five-game winning streak.
