PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Brent Burns scored twice and Patrick Marleau got his 1,000th career point to lift the San Jose Sharks over the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 on Saturday night.

Marleau became the 83rd NHL player to reach 1,000 points with an assist on Burns' first goal 7:54 into the game.

Burns has seven goals this year, and the Sharks have won the first five games of a season-high six-game trip that ends Sunday night against Columbus.

Sharks defenceman Paul Martin scored his first goal of the season and had an assist against his old team. Martin spent five years with Pittsburgh and was one of the Pens' most reliable defencemen last season.

Martin Jones stopped 38 shots and tied for the league lead with his 11th win.

Phil Kessel scored his seventh of the season for Pittsburgh. Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves.
