NEWARK, N.J. - David Clarkson scored his second goal of the game on a power play with 3:32 to play and the red-hot New Jersey Devils completed a sweep of the top teams in the Eastern and Western conferences with a wild 6-5 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

Brian Gionta, Brian Rolston, Patrik Elias and Jamie Langenbrunner also scored as the Devils won for the 13th time in 15 games.
