EDMONTON, Alberta, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored second-period goals Saturday, keying the San Jose Sharks' 6-1 rout of Edmonton.

After they had spotted the Oilers a 1-0 lead in the first frame, the Sharks reeled off six unanswered goals to win going away.

Dany Heatley's power play goal tied it with less than 4 minutes remaining in the first, and Couture and Pavelski (two assists) extended San Jose's lead in the middle stanza.

Ryan Clowe, Dan Boyle and John McCarthy each found the net in the third period to complete the rout and Antero Niittymaki stopped 21-of-22 shots in San Jose's win.

Jordan Eberle got a shorthanded tally for the Oilers' only score.

Nikolai Khabibulin was lit up for six goals on 34 shots faced in the loss.
