San Jose and Pittsburgh had a classic tilt last night as two of the best teams in the NHL duked it out. The Sharks won 5-3, thanks in part to Patrick Marleau's shorthanded goal, which saw the veteran undress Evgeni Malkin while Sidney Crosby looked on.

Crosby was a stunning minus-5 on the evening for the Penguins, who blew a third period lead on two separate occasions.
