Sharks 3, Kings 1
Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -Patrick Marleau scored two goals, Bill Guerin added the go-ahead score and the San Jose Sharks clinched a playoff berth with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Christian Ehrhoff had a career-best three assists and Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves for the Sharks, who shook off a sluggish start in their return from a lengthy road trip to win their fourth straight home game - their seventh victory in nine games overall.

The Sharks broke it open when Guerin capitalized on a remarkable centering pass from Ehrhoff early in the third period. Guerin, acquired in a trade with St. Louis last month, buried his eighth goal in eight games after failing to find the net in his first six games with the Sharks.

Brian Willsie scored and Sean Burke stopped 23 shots for the Kings, who lost to San Jose for the fifth time in seven meetings this season.
