Sharks\' power-play hurts, again
The last time the Red Wings visited San Jose, the Sharks tied a franchise record by scoring five power-play goals en route to a 5-1 victory.

On Thursday, San Jose set a new power-play mark, tallying six with a man-advantage and throttling the Wings, 9-4, at the HP Pavilion.

The bright spot for the Wings occurred in the first period when they built a 3-0 lead and chased goalie Evgeni Nabokov, who left the game after facing just 12 shots. Jiri Hudler, Tomas Holmstrom and Jason Williams score for the Wings.

Unfortunately for Detroit, the rest of the evening wasn't very enjoyable.

The Sharks fought their way back into the contest, scoring eight straight goals, including four in the second period, for a 5-3 lead heading into the second intermission. San Jose added four power-play goals ? two by Mike Grier -- in the third. Ryane Clowe and Patrick Marleau also scored in the third.

It was the first time that the Wings have allowed nine goals in a game in nearly 14 years. The last opponent to do so were the Los Angeles Kings, who defeated Detroit, 9-3, on March 29, 1993.

The Wings struck early against the San Jose when Hudler -- who turned 23 on Thursday -- took a centering pass from Niklas Kronwall and blasted a shot past the Sharks' starting goalie Evgeni Nabokov, who was later replaced by Vesa Toskala.

Holmstrom's power-play goal gave the Wings a 2-0 lead. Moments later, Williams' unassisted goal on a breakaway gave the Wings a 3-0 cushion. It was his seven goal of the season; the first away from Joe Louis Arena.

But the lead didn't last for long. Josh George scored an even-strength tally late in the period for San Jose, trimming the Wings' lead to 3-1.

The Sharks then scored four goals in the second period, victimizing six-time Vezina Trophy winner Dominik Hasek on 15 shots. Jonathan Cheechoo, Clowe, Christian Ehrhoff and Joe Pavelski score for the Sharks. Cheechoo and Pavelski scored with the Sharks skating with a man-advantage.

The seven goals allowed by Hasek are the most scored against him since the Sharks did so on March 15, 2000. Hasek was lifted for Osgood after the Sharks took an 8-3 lead.

On Oct. 25, Milan Michalek, Mark Bell and Marleau scored in the first 15 minutes to chase Osgood. Cheechoo and Marleau added third-period goals as the Sharks tied their club record for power-play scores, set last February in another home game against Detroit.

Brett Lebda scored for Detroit late in the game.
