The Pak Banker - - International3 -

SAN JOSE, CALIF: Ryane Clowe scored his sec­ond goal of the game 3:52 into over­time to give the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 vic­tory over the Chicago Black­hawks on Satur­day night.

Clowe one-timed a pass from Marc-Edouard Vla­sic to the in­side corner past goalie Corey Craw­ford, whose se­v­engame win­ning streak ended.

Antti Niemi stopped 28 shots to beat his for­mer team, the de­fend­ing Stan­ley Cup cham­pi­ons, for the sec­ond time this sea­son.

Jor­dan Hendry scored for the Black­hawks, who lost for the sec­ond time in seven games since their last meet­ing in San Jose on Nov. 24 - a 5-2 Sharks vic­tory. Craw­ford made 28 saves, but failed to tie a rookie fran­chise record for con­sec­u­tive wins.

Both teams en­tered hav­ing each scored 18 goals in their pre­vi­ous five games.

Niemi and Craw­ford were up to the task, and the teams com­bined for only six penalty min­utes. Clowe's goal gave the Sharks an early lead mid­way through the first pe­riod. He one-timed a pass from Ja­son De­mers into the up­per left corner. Clowe has points in six of seven games. Hendry, who played for the first time in 14 games, took ad­van­tage by scor­ing his first goal off an as­sist from Jake Dowell. -Ap
