This week's Facebook 5 Top Play winner with 47% of the fan votes was Joe Pavelski's tipped shot versus the Washington Capitals. In that game Pavelski had four points including two goals and two assists to guide the Sharks to a 5-3 victory. Halfway through the first period Pavelski got his first point of the night when defenseman Dan Boyle struck a shot from beyond the red line. Pavelski's stick deflected the puck which then bounced off the ice, and trickled in off of Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby. With those four points, Pavelski has 22 goals and 22 asssits on the season (as does Patrick Marleau).
