(SAN JOSE, CA) — The San Jose Sharks are moving on to the next round of the NHL Playoffs.
Patrick Marleau’s power play goal in overtime gave the Sharks a 4-3 series-clinching victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.
Joe Pavelski scored the second of his two goals to tie the game with 4:27 left in the third period, before Marleau scored the game-winner that gave the Sharks their first playoff sweep in franchise history.
“A win like this feels good, now we will get some rest,” Pavelski said. The Sharks won’t begin the second round until next week.
Vancouver has now last 10 of their past 11 playoff games dating back to 2011, when they lost to the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.
