PITTSBURGH, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- The second goal of the game for Patrick Marleau, coming with just 4 seconds left in overtime Wednesday, gave San Jose a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh.

Marleau put the Sharks in front 2-1 early in the third period, but Tyler Kennedy forced overtime by scoring with just 50 seconds to go in regulation. It was Kennedy's second of the game.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic fired a shot from the left point with time expiring in overtime. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped the shot, but the rebound went right to Marleau and he flipped it into the net.

Antti Niemi picked up the win with 24 saves. Fleury stopped 35-of-38 shots. It was Pittsburgh's fifth loss in six games.
