Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture each scored twice to spoil Cory Schneider's return to the nets for Vancouver and the San Jose Sharks won their third straight game to open the playoffs, beating the Canucks 5-2 on Sunday night.

Pavelski scored the first two goals and Couture and Patrick Marleau added scores 9 seconds apart to break the game open early in the third period and give the Sharks a 3-0 series lead.

Couture added a second power-play goal early in the third to end Schneider's night and give him a playoff-best four points for the game. Antti Niemi made 28 saves.

San Jose will attempt to complete the first series sweep in franchise history at home on Tuesday night.
