San Jose Sharks get back on winning track against Edmonton Oilers

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Patrick Marleau scored two goals, Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves as the San Jose Sharks snapped their three-game winless streak with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Joe Thornton also scored, and Joe Pavelski extended his goal-scoring streak to four games as the Sharks finally figured out how to beat longtime nemesis Dwayne Roloson, the Edmonton goalie who’s been responsible for several of San Jose’s most significant home losses over the past four seasons.
