John Tortorella spent his first game as coach of the Vancouver Canucks watching from the team's suite as the San Jose Sharks came into Rogers Arena and posted a 3-2 win behind a power-play goal from Tommy Wingels with 3:53 remaining in regulation.

The Sharks outshot the Canucks 42-16, but the game was even at 2-2 until Wingels deflected Joe Pavelski's shot past Joe Cannata with Alexandre Burrows in the penalty box.

Pavelski opened the scoring by beating starting goaltender Eddie Lack, but 2012 first-round pick Brendan Gaunce tied it at 17:46 when he fired home the rebound of Dale Wiese's shot. John McCarthy's one-timer late in the second period put the Sharks back in front. Hunter Shinkaruk, one of Vancouver's two first-round choices in this year's NHL draft, beat Alex Stalock top-shelf from a bad angle 1:15 into the third period to get Vancouver even again.

"I saw a little bit of corner up there," said Shinkaruk, whose parents were shown, teary-eyed, on the scoreboard after the goal. "It's not all the time that goes in, I try it every now and then and I'm lucky it just worked out.

"It was a game I'll never forget and it was a lot of fun."
