Sharks Bury Canucks To Complete Sweep

(San Jose, CA) -- Patrick Marleau buried home a rebound on the power play in overtime to lift the Sharks to a 4-3 win over the Canucks and complete a four-game sweep in the Western Conference quarterfinals. Sharks center Joe Thornton says they are thrilled to be moving on after this game.

Joe Pavelski scored twice and Brent Burns also potted a goal for San Jose, which is the sixth-seed in the West.  Thornton had three assists and Antti Niemi made 32 stops for the Sharks, who won't know their next opponent until teams are re-seeded after this round.  Mason Raymond, Alex Burrows and Alexander Edler each scored for Vancouver. Cory Schneider stopped 45 shots in defeat.
