SAN JOSE, Calif., April 6 (UPI) -- Third-period goals from Dan Boyle and Joe Pavelski Friday rallied San Jose to a 2-1 victory over Calgary.

San Jose jumped past Los Angeles into the fourth spot in the Western Conference playoff race while Calgary faded further from post-season contention with its fourth straight loss.

The only Calgary goal came from Mikael Backlund with 2:05 to go in the first period and that was the game's only score until the Sharks finally got to Miikka Kiprusoff in the third period.

Boyle tied it 2:40 into the final period with a slap shot and Pavelski delivered the game-winner with 2:06 to play.

Antti Niemi picked up the victory with 23 saves. Kiprusoff stopped 39-of-41 shots.
