NHL: San Jose 3, Nashville 2 (OT)

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 9 (UPI) -- Patrick Marleau scored his 27th goal of the season with 96 seconds left in overtime Tuesday to give the San Jose Sharks a 3-2 win over Nashville.

Marleau's goal got San Jose back on track after its eight-game winning streak was snapped by Dallas Saturday.


The back-and-forth game was deadlocked 2-2 after two periods. San Jose outshot the Predators 13-4 in the third period but could not get past Pekka Rinne, who finished the game with 30 saves on 33 shots.

The game stopped short of a shootout when Marleau grabbed the puck in his own zone and lined up a wrist shot from the right circle that flew over Rinne's glove for the win.

Ryan Clowe had a goal and an assist and Justin Braun added a goal in regulation for the Sharks. Antti Niemi turned in 23 saves.

Joel Ward had a goal and Shea Weber tallied a goal and an assist for the Preds. Nashville finished a four-game road trip with a 1-1-2 record.
