Radim Vrbata contributed a goal and an assist, and Mike Smith registered 32 saves for the victors.

Raffi Torres and Martin Hanzal of Phoenix also found the net.

The Sharks saw their three-game winning streak snapped despite a goal and an assist from Patrick Marleau.

Antti Niemi made 19 stops in the San Jose loss.
