SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -Defenseman Doug Murray scored three goals, Evengi Nabokov made 15 saves and newcomers Manny Malhotra and Dany Heatley helped the San Jose Sharks beat the Anaheim Ducks 6-0 in exhibition play Friday night.

Ryan Clowe and Devin Setoguchi also scored for the Sharks (3-2-1).

Murray had a goal in each period.

Murray opened the scoring with 5:14 left in the first, taking a pass from Heatley and scoring from the right side. It was Murray's first goal of the preseason.

The defenseman added his second goal early in the second, ripping a shot from just inside the blue line past goalie Justin Pogge's right side.

Murray completed the hat trick in third, scooping up a rebound on the left side and scoring with a shot that got away from Pogge on his left side.

Malhotra chipped a shot over Pogge's shoulder from just inside the crease in the Sharks' three-goal second period.

Pogge finished with 30 saves for Anaheim (4-3-0).
