ANAHEIM, Calif. - Joe Pavelski and Jonathan Cheechoo scored the tying and go-ahead goals during power plays, and the San Jose Sharks set a franchise record with their 52nd victory, beating the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Sunday night.
Jeremy Roenick had his first goal in four months, and backup goalie Brian Boucher stopped 19 shots for the Sharks, who lead Boston by three points in the race for the NHL's best record (115-112).
San Jose has never won the Presidents' Trophy, despite recording no fewer than 104 points in four of the last five seasons. The Sharks' final three games are against the bottom three teams in the Western Conference - Colorado, Phoenix and Los Angeles.
Petteri Nokelainen scored a short-handed goal for Anaheim and Cory Perry connected on the power play.
