Sharks embark on five-game road trip still unbeaten in regulation

With their season-opening point streak on the line, the Sharks begin a five-game road trip when they visit the Detroit Red Wings today.

San Jose is the only remaining team in the NHL without a regulation loss, as it opened the campaign with six straight victories and dropped a shootout decision at Dallas before trouncing Calgary on Saturday. Joe Pavelski registered two goals and two assists while Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture had one of each in the triumph.

Antti Niemi’s victory on Saturday was his 100th for San Jose, making him just the second goaltender in club history to reach the century mark.

Evgeni Nabokov, who plays for the New York Islanders, is the franchise leader with 293 wins. Marleau has yet to be kept off the scoresheet this season, as he has collected seven goals and four assists in eight contests.

Detroit is coming off a disappointing 5-2 loss at Phoenix on Saturday in which it allowed five unanswered goals over the final 21 minutes.

The setback halted the Red Wings’ four-game winning streak, which began after a home loss to the Coyotes on Oct. 10. The Sharks (8-2-1) have earned points in nine of the last 11 meetings between the teams.
