    GLENDALE, Ariz. [b]Wholesale Giants Jerseys[/b] . -- Between a three-day layoff and a quirk in the schedule, the San Jose Sharks were concerned about getting off to a slow start. They did, yet still found a way to pull out a road victory, something that had been hard to come by recently. Patrick Marleau scored in regulation and in the shootout, Joe Pavelski had a goal and an assist, and the Sharks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-3 on Friday night. "They had a little more jump and much better execution than we did early in the game, in fact off the opening faceoff," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "But I was pleased with the way our guys stuck with it and fought through it." San Jose had to fly out Friday morning because the new NHL labour agreement requires teams to take three full days off for the holiday break. The Sharks were flat early, and the Coyotes jumped on them, creating numerous good scoring chances in the first period to go up 1-0. The Sharks found their rhythm after they fought back. In regulation, Brent Burns had a goal and an assist, and Joe Thornton had two assists. Once San Jose hit the shootout, Logan Couture and Marleau scored, and Antti Niemi stopped Radim Vrbata and Oliver Ekman-Larsson for the Sharks second win in their past seven road games. "Its been tough for us on the road, so for us to go out and get the two points was nice," Marleau said. The Coyotes were much better in their own end than previously against the Sharks, allowing 28 shots in regulation after giving up 101 combined in a pair of games in San Jose earlier this season. Phoenix pulled out a victory in one of those first two games, but couldnt earn the extra point Friday after struggling in the shootout. David Moss had two goals, and Vrbata scored late in the third period to help Phoenix earn a point in its fourth straight game -- all after regulation. "The last time we got two points on San Jose, we probably didnt deserve those two points," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "Tonight, I thought that game was a toss-up. Unfortunately, we didnt get the extra point, but we put the work in to get the two points." With their early travel, the Sharks seemed a step slow in the opening period, and the Coyotes jumped on them, generating several good scoring chances. San Jose gave them an extra one midway through the period, when Sharks forward Matt Nieto flipped an errant pass right to Moss, who whirled around in the slot and beat Niemi. The Sharks nearly scored early in the second period when a shot by Justin Braun hit the left post, bounced off a stick and hit the right post before being cleared away. They did get one through after a Coyotes turnover. Thornton ended up with the stray puck, skated up the middle and found Pavelski, who beat Smith over the glove shoulder from the left circle. The next two goals came quickly. Phoenix answered 68 seconds after Pavelskis goal when Moss fought off Nieto and redirected a shot from David Schlemko past Niemi. San Jose responded on a power play two minutes after that, tying it when Marleau gathered a pass from Tommy Wingels and beat Smith with a wrist shot from between two defenders. The Sharks made a big push to start the third period, and Burns scored midway through, one-timing a feed from Pavelski behind the net that went through Phoenix defenceman Derek Morris legs. Phoenix again had an answer, scoring with just over 6 minutes left on a power play when Mike Ribeiro sent a pass through traffic to Vrbata, who scored his 11th of the season from the left circle to tie it at 3-all. Smith made a big save on Burns after a turnover right in front in overtime, but couldnt stop Couture or Marleau in the shootout. "Theyre such a good team, those first two lines have really good players," Vrbata said. "We played much tighter defensively and didnt give them much. Obviously, (they scored) three goals, but its a good team." NOTES: Friday night was the 10th anniversary of the Coyotes first game at Jobing.com Arena -- a 3-1 loss to Nashville. ... Thornton, the NHL assists leader with 37, has five in his past two games. ... Coyotes captain Shane Doan missed his ninth straight game because of Rocky Mountain Fever. He skated Friday morning, but no timetable has been set for his return. ... Couture has gone seven games without a point, leaving him stuck on 99 goals and 98 assists for his career.

He spent the rest of the game making up for lost playing time. Green scored a career-high 36 points, including eight in overtime, and the Phoenix Suns beat Denver 112-107 on Tuesday night to hand the Nuggets their fifth consecutive loss.SAN JOSE, Calif. - The Calgary Flames ability to bounce back from tough losses is the biggest reason for their early-season turnaround.Karri Ramo made 32 saves for his third career shutout and Jiri Hudler scored both goals to lead the Flames over the San Jose Sharks 2-0 Wednesday night.Hudler broke a scoreless tie with a goal in the second period and sealed the game with an empty-netter on the power play late in the third. Calgary rebounded a night after losing 3-2 in Anaheim to win for the ninth time in 10 games following a loss this season.I think everybody here in the room knows that if we just keep playing our game were going to win many games, Ramo said. In the long run, we dont have to panic. Just play our game and focus on our own game.Antti Niemi made 17 saves for the struggling Sharks, who have lost four straight. San Jose hasnt led at any point during the skid, marking the first time since February 2013 that the Sharks have gone four straight games without a lead.I think the chances are there, forward Patrick Marleau said. Hopefully its like a big buildup and its going to break soon and well start getting on a winning streak.After playing a record 16 of their first 21 games on the road, the Sharks were hoping to find their stride on a six-game homestand. But they have lost the first three games in that stretch and have just two wins in eight games at the Shark Tank this season.Every game is critical, coach Todd McLellan said. Were in the thick of it right now. The rest of this homestand is critical but so are the next two road games and the home games after that. Were an everyday team right now just scrambling to get back to the point where we can get our heads above water.Ramo did his best to extend the Sharks misery, beating them for the third straight time. He has allowed only two goals on 94 shots in that span. He was tested a bit inn the third, but Marleau was stopped by defenceman Dennis Wideman from the side of the net and Ramo stopped Joe Thornton on a rebound chance. [b]Giants Deion Sanders Jersey[/b]. The Sharks also had chances to get on the board early in the second, but Marleau hit the crossbar during a power play.Ramo posted Calgarys first regular-season shutout in San Jose since Fred Brathwaite beat the Sharks 1-0 on Jan. 3, 2001. Miikka Kiprusoff also shut out San Jose in the 2004 Western Conference finals.Hes definitely the reason we won that game, Flames defenceman TJ Brodie said of Ramo. He made some big saves when we needed him to. He was solid all night.The Flames got on the board late in the second period during 4-on-4 action, taking advantage of a tired group of Sharks at the end of a long shift. Hudler started the play by taking the puck into the offensive zone and then left it for Brodie. He sent it back to the slot for Hudler, who completed the pretty give-and-go with a wrist shot past Niemi to make it 1-0.Ramo preserved the lead late in the period with a strong glove save against Tommy Wingels.The Flames had a couple of prime scoring chances early, but Niemi robbed Johnny Gaudreau at the side of the net after a wild scramble in the opening minute and then stopped Paul Byron after a turnover by James Sheppard later in a scoreless first period.Some of the biggest excitement was generated by a group of Edmonton Oilers fans sitting at ice level who had junior hockey star Connor McDavids name taped on the backs of their jerseys. They alternated cheers for the Sharks with derogatory chants about the rival Flames.NOTES: Flames F Mikael Backlund had an abdominal procedure and is listed as week-to-week. ... Calgary placed F Devin Setoguchi on waivers. ... Former San Jose State G Ryan Lowe was signed as a backup to Niemi after Troy Groesnick got hurt in practice Tuesday.
