Jan. 10, 2014 at 1:14 AM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Joe Pavelski scored twice over the first two periods to drive Jimmy Howard out of the game Thursday and San Jose went on to defeat Detroit 4-1.

The Sharks had their 4-1 cushion heading into the third, at the start of which Howard was replaced by Petr Mrazek.

Pavelski tallied 4:59 into the game and he scored the second of San Jose's three goals in the middle period -- giving him 21 for the season.

Andrew Desjardins and Dan Boyle also scored in the second period for the Sharks.

Detroit opened a four-game, cross-country road trip that began in northern California and will end in New York.

Antti Niemi made 24 saves, allowing only a first-period goal to Tomas Tatar. Howard gave up four goals on 23 shots.
