BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Patrick Marleau scored by converting a rebound 2:59 into overtime and the San Jose Sharks beat Buffalo 2-1 on Saturday night to end an eight-game skid against the Sabres.
Marc-Edouard Vlasic had a goal and assist, goalie Martin Jones stopped 30 shots and San Jose won for just the second time in 16 visits to Buffalo - and first since Dec. 2, 2005 in Joe Thornton's first game with the franchise.
Vlasic set up the game-winner. The Sharks were applying pressure in the Sabres zone, and his shot from the high slot bounced off the right post and caromed to the left of the net. Marleau reached out to coral the puck and snapped it into the open side.
San Jose won two straight for the first time since a 4-0 start. The Sharks are now 2-0 in beginning a six-game road trip following a 3-2 win at Detroit on Friday night.
Ryan O'Reilly scored for Buffalo.
