SAN JOSE, Calif., April 3 (UPI) -- Devin Setoguchi scored the go-ahead goal late in the third period Saturday and the San Jose Sharks staved off Anaheim for a 4-2 victory.

With Jason Blake off on a holding penalty, Joe Thornton created a screen in front of Ducks goalie Ray Emery and Setoguchi's blast from the right circle found the net, breaking a 2-2 tie with less than 6 minutes left.

Patrick Marleau scored two goals (including an empty-netter) and assisted on a third, and Dany Heatley also tallied for the Sharks, who hold the second seed in the Western Conference.

Antti Niemi turned aside 20-of-22 shots for the victory.

Bobby Ryan and Lubomir Visnovsky scored for seventh-seeded Anaheim, which was seeking to clinch a playoff spot with a win.

Visnovsky left the game after a third-period hit from San Jose's Douglas Murray and didn't return.

Emery finished with 29 saves for the Ducks.
