Joe Pavelski had a big night with a goal, two assists, while recording seven shots and a plus-3 in the Sharks 5-1 beat down of Los Angeles on Tuesday.
It was a big night for the newly coined captain for the San Jose Sharks. In the last two years, only Alex Ovechkin has more goals than his 78, now 79 goals. Pavelski wasn't the only Shark to have a big night as Brent Burns, Joe Thornton and Marc-Edouard Vlasic each picked up two points in the blowout of cross town rival Kings. It was clear that the Sharks were out for blood with something to prove as they had their top unit out there on the power-play even with a game well in hand. Oct 8 - 2:23 AM
