Sharks\' power-play strikes, again
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Patrick Marleau had a goal and three assists while becoming the San Jose Sharks' career scoring leader, and Joe Thornton contributed four assists during their rally from a three-goal deficit to a 9-4 victory over the Red Wings on Thursday night.

The Sharks' Joe Thornton looks to make a pass in front of the Wings' net. He had four assists in San Jose's win.
The Red Wings played without veteran defenseman Chris Chelios, who is indefinitely sidelined while he deals with the stabbing deaths of two employees in his Detroit sports bar. They also didn't have top-line forward Pavel Datsyuk, who missed his second game with an upper-body injury.

Mike Grier scored two of the Sharks' franchise-record six power-play goals, including five in the third period during a string of nine consecutive goals for the Sharks. Both power-play totals were the most ever allowed in Detroit's lengthy hockey history, capping a stunning offensive avalanche by the formerly struggling Sharks.

Marleau has 454 points in a career spent entirely with the Sharks, roaring past Owen Nolan's career record of 451 early in the third period with his second assist. Marleau is one goal shy of Nolan's franchise record of 206.

Ryane Clowe also scored two goals, and Jonathan Cheechoo, Christian Ehrhoff and rookie Joe Pavelski each had a goal and an assist as the Sharks snapped Detroit's four-game winning streak with their second straight victory following a skid of five losses in seven games.

The Sharks befuddled Dominik Hasek, who hadn't given up more than five goals in a game since March 15, 2000, also in San Jose -- a span of 229 games.

Hasek made 20 saves before finally getting pulled after Grier's second goal, and Chris Osgood gave up Clowe's final score. Brett Lebda added a late goal for Detroit.
