Recap: San Jose vs. Toronto

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Antti Niemi made 24 saves and three different players scored for the San Jose Sharks in a 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.

Tyler Kennedy, Patrick Marleau and Tommy Wingels all scored and Justin Braun tallied two assists for the Sharks, who have won two straight.

Roman Polak provided Toronto's lone goal and James Reimer stopped 39-of-41 shots in his team's third straight loss.

San Jose has won its last four games against the Maple Leafs.

The Sharks got on the board with two goals in an 11-second span during the first period.

Brenden Dillon took Braun's pass across the blue line and sent the puck down to Kennedy, who lifted a shot over a sprawling Reimer from the right side of the net 8:55 into game

"It was a great play by Dillon there," Kennedy said. "I think we're clicking a little bit."

Marleau roared down the right wing and backhanded a shot on net. The puck trickled through the pads of Reimer into the crease, where the Toronto netminder knocked it into his own net for a 2-0 game at 9:06. The play was reviewed and deemed to be a good goal.

Mike Santorelli skated around the left circle and had his shot ricochet off the end boards right to Polak, who wristed it into the net with 8:03 to play in the opening stanza.

The Sharks outshot the Maple Leafs 17-4 during the second period, but the score was still 2-1 heading into the final frame.

Toronto pulled Reimer with over a minute to play and Wingels scored into the empty net with 44.2 seconds remaining to account for the final margin.
