Kings no match for Sharks

March 28, 2007

SAN JOSE — Patrick Marleau scored two goals, Bill Guerin had the go-ahead score and the San Jose Sharks clinched a playoff berth Tuesday with a 3-1 win over the Kings.

Christian Ehrhoff had a career-best three assists and Evgeni Nabokov made 24 saves for the Sharks, who shook off a sluggish start in their return from a lengthy trip to win their fourth home game in a row -- their seventh victory in nine games overall.

The Sharks broke it open when Guerin capitalized on a remarkable centering pass from Ehrhoff early in the third period.

Guerin, acquired in a trade with St. Louis last month, buried his eighth goal in eight games after failing to find the net in his first six games with the Sharks.

Brian Willsie scored and Sean Burke stopped 23 shots for the Kings, who lost to San Jose for the fifth time in seven meetings.
