Sharks look to rebound from embarrassing loss

Dec 31, 2006 - 5:41 PM San Jose (25-14-0) at Dallas (25-14-0) 8:00 pm EST

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The San Jose Sharks should be in a nasty mood when they take the ice against the Dallas Stars on Sunday.

San Jose was routed, 8-0, by the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday en route to being swept in a home-and-home series.

The usually reliable Evgeni Nabokov, who entered with the second-lowest goals-against average in the league, was pulled after giving up three goals on just six shots in the first period.

The Stars have been playing good hockey lately in winning four of their last five. Dallas downed the Nashville Predators, 4-1, on Friday for their second straight win.

Antti Miettinen led the Stars with two power-play goals while Jere Lehtenen also had a goal with the extra man. The Stars finished 3-for-8 with the power play.

Marty Turco got the win in goal, stopping 19 shots, while Mike Ribeiro finished with a pair of assists.
