Patrick Marleau scores twice, Sharks beat Blue Jackets 4-3 in shootout

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Patrick Marleau scored twice and Joe Pavelski had the lone shootout goal in the San Jose Sharks' 4-3 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

After tying his career high of 66 points with an assist on Marleau's second goal, Pavelski deked Sergei Bobrovsky and roofed a backhander in the tiebreaker to give San Jose its fourth straight win.

Marleau scored his 27th and 28th goals. Matt Nieto also scored and Logan Couture had two assists for the Sharks, who are 8-1-1 in their last 10 to move into a tie with Anaheim for the Pacific Division lead.

Backup goalie Alex Stalock made 35 saves, including a spectacular post-to-post stop on Jack Johnson with seconds remaining in regulation and Columbus on the power play.

Ryan Johansen, R. J. Umberger and James Wisniewski scored for the Blue Jackets. Brandon Dubkinsky added two assists for Columbus, 17-7-2 since Jan. 1.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
