DETROIT (AP) -The San Jose Sharks have no desire to play any longer than 60 minutes.

Joe Pavelski's goal with 5.9 seconds remaining capped San Jose's comeback and gave the Sharks a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.

San Jose, which won its fifth straight, also got goals from Patrick Marleau and Mark Bell.

The Sharks' only overtime game this season came in the opener.

"When we scored ... Joe Thornton said, 'We don't do overtime!', San Jose coach Ron Wilson recalled. "I said, 'Thank God we don't do overtime.' We were getting ready for the overtime."

Mikael Samuelsson and Mathieu Schneider scored for Detroit.

After a turnover by Dan Cleary just inside the Red Wings' blue line, Pavelski took a pass from Milan Michalek, cut in from the left side, made a move and beat Joey MacDonald with a forehand shot.

"He made a a great pass," Pavelski said.

MacDonald was spectacular with 32 saves in his third NHL start.

"Turnover ... then Pavelski came out and walked in from the slot," MacDonald said. "He made a great shot."

Bell tied it at 2 with 3:31 left in regulation when he put his rebound past MacDonald.

"It was kind of a weak shot. I kind of had it in my skates," Bell said of his original shot. "I just wanted to get it off. It hit him in the pads, he went down and the puck came back to me."

After playing solid hockey for two periods, Detroit repeatedly turned the puck over in its own zone in the third period.

"We stopped making the easy play," forward Henrik Zetterberg said. "We started trying to make the hardest play."

Samuelsson and Schneider scored 1:22 apart in the second period to give the Red Wings a 2-1 lead. Samuelsson tied it 1-1 at 11:27 with a wrist shot from the inside edge of the right circle. Only nine seconds after San Jose's Marc-Edouard Vlasic went off for hooking, Schneider sent a shot from the high slot that trickled between Vesa Toskala's pads. It was Schneider's seventh goal.

Toskala stopped 17 shots.

The Sharks opened the scoring on Marleau's power-play goal 3:14 in when he scored on a rebound.

An apparent goal by Schneider with 3:13 left in the opening period was waved off because Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom was ruled to be in the crease. Replays showed that Holmstrom's skates were outside the painted area.

Notes: Red Wings C Kris Draper was hit in the face by a clearing attempt by teammate Chris Chelios with 2:17 left in the first period and immediately went to the dressing room. He returned in the second period. ... It was Chelios' 1,500th NHL game. ... Detroit RW Jason Williams returned after missing a game with a charley horse. ... San Jose RW Jonathan Cheechoo returned after missing six games with a leg injury. ... Red Wings D Niklas Kronwall didn't play because of a sore groin. ... Detroit LW Johan Franzen missed his missed his fifth game because of a concussion and knee injury. ... Wilson is the nephew of former NHL player Johnny Wilson, who played for and coached the Red Wings. Johnny Wilson lives in suburban Detroit and attended the game.
