SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -Vesa Toskala made 20 saves and recorded San Jose's first multipoint game by a goalie, getting two first-period assists in the Sharks' 4-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.
Marcel Goc and Curtis Brown scored on plays initiated by Toskala, who backstopped San Jose to just its second victory in six games. Patrick Marleau and Milan Michalek also scored for the Sharks, who still haven't fixed their once-vaunted power play but made enough hustle plays to win.
Tuomo Ruutu had a goal and an assist, and Martin Havlat also scored for the Blackhawks, who had won two straight following a 10-game losing streak. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 27 shots, but lost for the 11th time in 14 appearances.
