VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Joe Pavelski and Tomas Hertl scored 2:28 apart in the third period, helping lift the San Jose Sharks over the Vancouver Canucks 4-1 on Sunday.

Patrick Marleau and Justin Braun, into an empty net, had the other goals for the Sharks, while Martin Jones made 23 saves. Marc-Edouard Vlasic added two assists, with Pavelski and Braun picking up one each for San Jose.

Daniel Sedin replied for the Canucks, who were looking to win three in a row for the first time this season. Ryan Miller made 24 saves.

San Jose sits in third place in the Pacific Division, 12 points up on the fading Canucks, who are eight back of the Colorado Avalanche for the Western Conference's second wild-card spot.
