ANAHEIM, Calif., March 26 (UPI) -- Brent Burns, Martin Havlat and Joe Pavelski each notched a goal and an assist Monday in the San Jose Sharks' 5-3 win over Anaheim.

Antti Niemi stopped 24-of-27 shots as the Sharks won for the second time in three games overall as they seek a Western Conference playoff spot.

Corey Perry provided a goal and an assist for the Pacific Division-leading Ducks, who fell for the third straight time.

Emerson Etem and Francois Beauchemin tallied and Viktor Fasth made 34 saves in the loss.
