Sharks shoot down Stars

Feb 3, 2012 - 8:00 AM San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Joe Thornton each had a goal and an assist to lead the San Jose Sharks to a 5-2 win over the Dallas Stars.

Michal Handzus and Ryane Clowe both scored for the Sharks, who have won three straight. Thomas Greiss stopped 19 shots in the win.

"For whatever reason we play them real well," Thornton said of the Stars. "They bring out the best in us."

Steve Ott had a goal and an assist while Jamie Benn also scored for the Stars, who had a two-game winning streak stopped. Richard Bachman made 32 stops in the loss.

San Jose scored 4:42 in when a Brent Burns shot from the right point was tipped in by Handzus.

Pavelski made it a 2-0 game with 3:28 to play in the first on his 19th of the season.

Dallas cut the lead to one on Ott's eight of the year at the 12:41 mark of the second. That power-play goal stopped a scoreless streak by San Jose that lasted for 190 minutes and 51 seconds, the longest mark in franchise history

Just over two minutes later, though, the Sharks got the goal back as Couture redirected a Burns shot and Thornton made it a 4-1 game two minutes later with his 11th of the year.

Benn scored 6:22 into the third to get Dallas back within two, but Clowe's goal with 8:26 to play sealed the win for San Jose.

"They outplayed us," Ott said simply.
