TORONTO, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Patrick Marleau scored both San Jose goals Thursday and Antti Niemi took a shutout into the third period, bringing the Sharks a 2-1 victory over Toronto.

The Sharks halted a four-game losing streak and improved to 2-4-1 on a nine-game road trip that finishes with contests at Nashville and Minnesota.

It remained a 2-0 contest until Jake Gardiner put a slap shot past Niemi 3:53 into the third period.
