Sharks still swimming

Don’t count out the San Jose Sharks just yet, not while their captain still has his clutch scoring touch.

It took a video replay but Patrick Marleau's overtime goal did count as the San Jose Sharks beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 to stay alive and force Game 6.

Sharks 3 Ducks 2 (OT)

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Don’t count out the San Jose Sharks just yet, not while their captain still has his clutch scoring touch.

Patrick Marleau got his second game-winning goal of the playoffs 6:02 into overtime, and the top-seeded Sharks avoided first-round elimination with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks in Game 5 on Saturday night.

Evgeni Nabokov made 23 saves for the Sharks, who blew a two-goal lead early in the third period at the Shark Tank. San Jose stayed alive with a goal from its reconstituted top line when Joe Thornton circled the net and slipped the puck in front, where Devin Setoguchi and Marleau both hacked at it.

The puck landed behind Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller, who accidentally nudged it over the goal-line. Video review confirmed the officials’ call while the Sharks already were in their dressing room, preparing to move on to Game 6 on Monday night.

If the Sharks win again in Anaheim, the series will be decided in San Jose on Wednesday night.
