Sharks Snap Rangers' Seven-Game Winning Streak

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Devin Setoguchi scored two of San Jose's six
consecutive goals and the Sharks took advantage of New York backup
goalie Steve Valiquette in a 7-3 comeback victory Monday night that
snapped the Rangers' seven-game winning streak.

The Sharks got off to a sluggish start in the first half of the first period, falling behind 2-0. San Jose got even before the period was over and then scored three more goals in the second on only 10 shots at Valiquette.

No. 1 netminder Henrik Lundqvist took over in the third for Valiquette, who allowed five goals on 18 shots. Lundqvist gave up Ryan Vesce's third NHL goal - second in two games this season - at 3:46 of the third, and one to Patrick Marleau with 1:55 remaining that completed the scoring.
