Sharks end Rangers' streak

THE San Jose Sharks scored six consecutive goals as they roared back from a 0-2 deficit to post a 7-3 victory over the New York Rangers' on Monday, ending the home side's seven-game winning streak.

Devin Setoguchi scored two goals and an assist for the Sharks. Patrick Marleau added a goal and two assists.

"It was a great win for us," Ryan Vesce, who gave the Sharks a 6-2 lead to start the third period, said.

Twice the Sharks scored after Rangers penalties, including Setoguchi's first goal which put San Jose up 4-2.

"We played a good team and they capitalized on the mistakes we made," New York's Ryan Callahan said. "I don't think we were battling hard enough ... And I think the penalties really hurt us."

Chris Drury and Michael Del Zotto scored first-period goals for the Rangers, who had not lost since their opening game.

San Jose scored the next six goals before Enver Lisin collected New York's third tally with 2:48 left.

Marleau added the final San Jose goal a minute later. Both he and Setoguchi have now scored seven goals and Dany Heatley six in the young season.

Final period

Five of San Jose's goals came against Rangers backup netminder Steve Valiquette, who played the first two periods and stopped 13 of 18 shots before Henrik Lundqvist finished up the final period, saving 10 of 12 attempts.

Evgeni Nabokov played the entire game in goal for San Jose, stopping 26 of 29 shots.

Brad Staubitz and Heatley wiped out the Rangers' early lead, with Heatley levelling the score at 2-2 on a power play with 1:48 left in the first.

Jed Ortmeyer put the Sharks in front in the first 79 seconds of the second and Setoguchi followed with two goals 11 minutes apart.

In Dallas, Ryan Smyth had a power-play goal and two assists, and Justin Williams added a goal and an assist as road-weary Los Angeles beat Dallas 4-1 to end a three-game losing streak.

Anze Kopitar and Wayne Simmonds scored, and Jonathan Quick made 29 saves as the Kings wrapped up a six-game trip.

The Kings scored three straight goals in the second period while outshooting the Stars 18-4. Rookie Jamie Benn scored for Dallas.

In Edmonton, Alberta, Nikolai Khabibulin made 39 saves to lead Edmonton 2-1 over Vancouver to keep the Canucks winless on the road this season.

Sam Gagner's third-period goal was the game-winner for the Oilers (5-2-1), who have won four of five. Patrick O'Sullivan scored Edmonton's other goal and assisted on Gagner's midway through the period.
