Sharks hope they have turned the corner after losing streak

With their five-game winless streak behind them, the Sharks attempt to avenge their most-recent regulation loss when they visit the Vancouver Canucks today.

San Jose had gone 0-1-4 since posting a 5-2 victory at Ottawa on Oct. 27, losing three times in a shootout and once in overtime while also dropping a 4-2 home decision to the Canucks on Thursday.

The Sharks halted their skid Tuesday, but still needed extra time as defenseman Brad Stuart scored 1:13 into overtime after the club squandered a 2-0 lead in the third period against the Calgary Flames.

San Jose has gone beyond regulation in five of its last six games after needing extra time just twice in its first 12 contests.

The Sharks are 1-1 in overtime and 1-4 in shootouts.

San Jose, which is 1-0-1 on its five-game road trip, and Vancouver are wrapping up their four-game season series. The Sharks recorded a pair of 4-1 victories before last week’s setback.Brent BurnsHockey
