NHL; Sharks edge Blackhawks
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Ryane Clowe scored his second goal of the game 3:52 into overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.
Clowe one-timed a pass from Marc-Edouard Vlasic to the inside corner past goalie Corey Crawford, whose seven-game winning streak ended.
Antti Niemi stopped 28 shots to beat his former team, the defending Stanley Cup champions, for the second time this season.
Jordan Hendry scored for the Blackhawks, who lost for the second time in seven games since their last meeting in San Jose on Nov. 24.
Corey Crawford made 28 saves, but failed to tie a rookie franchise record for consecutive wins.
