Preview: Canucks at Sharks

The Sharks also netted four third-period goals in a 4-1 at Vancouver on Sunday and has outscored opponents 9-0 over the final 20 minutes during their three-game winning streak. “We have done it a few times now, so we know we can do it,” said forward Patrick Marleau, who had the decisive tally in Thursday’s win. “You don’t want to be toying with it that many times. We play a certain way we know we are going to get our chances. It’s just a matter of burying those chances and sticking with it.” While San Jose is four points behind division co-leaders Los Angeles and Anaheim, the skidding Canucks are 10 points out of the final playoff slot in the Western Conference. Vancouver has dropped three in a row and seven of nine (2-7-0).<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 10 p.m. ET, CBC, RSN (Vancouver), CSN California (San Jose)
