ST. LOUIS (AP) - Joe Thornton had a goal and three assists and Patrick Marleau had a goal and two assists and the San Jose Sharks downed the St. Louis Blues 6-2 Tuesday night.
The Sharks (6-0-0) won the matchup of unbeaten teams, but they had other concerns after the game.
The Sharks were concerned about the status of teammate Dan Boyle after the game after losing their veteran defenseman with a head injury.
Boyle was taken off on a stretcher early in the first period following a check from behind by the Blues' Maxim Lapierre, who was ejected from the game for checking from behind.
A Sharks spokesperson said Boyle was alert and responsive on the way to the hospital.
