Sharks win in SO, keep run of success vs. Caps alive
Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Jose Sharks run of dominance over the Washington Capitals continued with Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win at Verizon Center.
Patrick Marleau was called for the Sharks' lone minor penalty when he hooked down Mikhail Grabovski with 1:15 remaining in regulation. The Sharks killed off the Washington power play that bled into overtime, and Marleau wound up scoring the lone shootout goal in the second round of the tiebreaker.
Marleau moved the puck from the backhand to the forehand and fired a shot past Philipp Grubauer and in off the left post.
San Jose goaltender Antti Niemi stopped 35 shots and needed to make only one save in the shootout after both Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom missed the net.
The Sharks have won six straight against the Capitals and 17 of the last 18 meetings dating back to the 1999-2000 season.
Grubauer made 28 saves.
