VANCOUVER -- Trailing by a goal heading into the third period Thursday, the San Jose Sharks didn't have to look back too far to know they could come back against the Vancouver Canucks.

Defensemen Brent Burns tied it 43 seconds into the third period, and Patrick Marleau scored the go-ahead goal less than five minutes later to help San Jose to a 3-2 victory at Rogers Arena. It was the Sharks' second win against the Canucks in Vancouver in five days, each coming after trailing by a goal entering the third period.

Referee's call on the ice stands @NHLdotcom

Situation Room: Hertl's goal stands after review

3/3/16: The referees review a high stick on Tomas Hertl's goal and the goal stands at 10:29 of the 2nd period

  • 00:59 •

At 10:29 of the second period in the Sharks/Canucks game, video review was inconclusive in determining whether Tomas Hertl's stick was at or below the level of the crossbar when he deflected the puck into the Vancouver net. According to Rule 38.4 (vi) "The determining factor is where the puck makes contact with the stick in relation to the crossbar. If the puck makes contact with the portion of the stick that is at or below the level of the crossbar and enters the goal, this goal shall be allowed." Therefore the referee's call on the ice stands - good goal San Jose.

VANCOUVER -- Goalie Martin Jones will make his 10th straight start for the San Jose Sharks against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday while new backup James Reimer gets some practice time to adjust to new teammates and a new system.

Reimer was traded to the Sharks by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, but delays getting a permit to work in the United States prevented him from meeting his new teammates until they arrived in Vancouver on Wednesday.
