Patrick Marleau gets winner as San Jose Sharks trim Ducks' lead

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Patrick Marleau scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 9:27 left, and the San Jose Sharks evaded a daunting playoff deficit with a 4-3 victory over Anaheim in Game 3 on Tuesday night, trimming the Ducks' series lead to 2-1.

Dan Boyle had two goals and an assist, and fellow defenceman Rob Blake had a goal and an assist on Marleau's winner for the top-seeded Sharks, who had scored just twice while losing the first two games of their series with the eighth-seeded Ducks at home.

Desperately needing a win in Game 3, the Presidents' Trophy winners improved their offensive efforts and eventually got the tiebreaking goal from their captain, who beat Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller with a slick deflection of Blake's pass.
