After blowing late lead, Sharks prevail in shootout

SAN JOSE — Joe Pavelski scored with just under 20 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and Logan Couture and Patrick Marleau scored in the shootout to lift the San Jose Sharks to a 5-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 on Monday night.

Erik Johnson and Jamie McGinn scored goals 12 seconds apart in the final two minutes to put the Avalanche ahead.

Johnson's 6-on-4 power play goal slipped under the left shoulder of Sharks goalie Antti Niemi to knot things, and McGinn's goal also came with an extra skater as he beat Niemi to the stick side.

Pavelski tied it after taking a pass from Joe Thornton, who has an 11-game point streak against the Avalanche.

Jason Demers, Brent Burns and Matthew Irwin also scored for the Sharks.

Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog tallied for the Avalanche and Semyon Varlamov made 41 saves.
