SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Vincent Damphousse scored with 1:45 remaining in the third period Friday night to complete a third-period comeback and lift San Jose to a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ron Wilson's coaching debut with the Sharks.
Hired on Wednesday to replace Darryl Sutter, who was fired last Sunday, Wilson was staring a 2-1 loss in the face before his team turned it on midway through the third and scratched out a one-goal victory.
Patrick Marleau drew San Jose even with 9:41 remaining before Damphousse netted his ninth goal of the season to hand the Blue Jackets their third consecutive loss.
Geoff Sanderson scored both goals for Columbus, which fell to 0-4
1 in five visits to San Jose.
