SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Patrick Marleau scored two goals one first-period power play Saturday and the San Jose Sharks remained unbeaten in 2013 with a 4-0 win over Colorado.

Marleau -- who leads the NHL with eight goals -- scored 1 1/2 minutes apart on the same power play, becoming only the second player in NHL history to begin a season with four straight two-goal games.

Marleau added an assist, Joe Thornton supplied a power-play goal and an assist and Matt Irwin notched his first career goal as the Sharks improved to 4-0-0 to start the lockout-shortened season.

Thomas Greiss recorded his initial NHL shutout for San Jose, turning aside all 24 shots he faced.
