SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Joe Pavelski scored twice and goaltender Antti Niemi came up big during the third period Monday in the San Jose Sharks' 3-2 victory over Calgary.

Pavelski's second goal, his 27th of the season, came in the second period during the game's only power play and broke a 2-2 tie.

Niemi made the lead hold up in the final period as he posted 11 of his 21 saves, securing the Sharks' fourth straight win.

Tommy Wingels also recorded a goal for San Jose.

Kevin Westgarth and Jiri Hudler each scored for the Flames, who were coming off a brawl-filled shootout loss to Vancouver Saturday and fell to 3-13-2 in their last 17 games.

Flames Coach Bob Hartley was fined $50,000 for his role in Saturday's melee. He was cited by the NHL for sending out Westgarth to instigate a fight during the game's opening face-off.

Karri Ramo stopped 24-of-27 shots.
