  • Vancouver Canucks goalie Cory Schneider, center, is beaten for a goal on a shot from San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns as San Jose Sharks left wing T.J. Galiardi (21) and the Canucks' Andrew Alberts (41) watch during the first period of Game 4 of their first-round NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoff series in San Jose, Calif., Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

Patrick Marleau scored a power-play goal 13:18 into overtime and the San Jose Sharks completed their first playoff sweep in franchise history, beating the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 Tuesday night.

Joe Pavelski scored his second power-play goal of the game to tie it with 4:27 left in regulation. Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who will now get a break before beginning the second round of the playoffs next week.

Mason Raymond, Alex Burrows and Alexander Edler scored for the Canucks, who were unable to hold onto a late third-period lead for the second time this series.

Cory Schneider made big stops early in the overtime but gave up the rebound that led to Marleau's series-clinching goal.
