SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Joel Ward had a hat trick to help the San Jose Sharks end a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels also scored for the Sharks, who have not had a power-play goal in five consecutive games and are 0 for 11 with the man advantage in that span.

The game drew 15,814 fans - the Sharks' lowest attendance in nine years.

Justin Faulk and Riley Nash scored for the Hurricanes, who are in the middle of a seven-game road trip.

Martin Jones stopped 32 shots for the victory.

Carolina's Eddie Lack allowed four goals on 13 shots before Cam Ward replaced him midway through the second period and stopped all seven shots he faced.
