Barclay Goodrow recorded his second career multi-point game Thursday night, including a highlight reel goal to put Sharks up 2-1 early in the second.

In what turned out to be the second in a line of six straight goals by the Sharks, Goodrow's is arguably the most impressive and memorable. He chipped the James Sheppard pass by Hampus Lindholm at the red line and then raced in alone on Ilya Bryzgalov. Far bar down, goal. The Ducks would go on to win 6-3. Goodrow now has three goals and nine points in 32 games this season.

James Sheppard collected two points in San Jose's 6-3 win over Anaheim on Thursday night.

Sheppard was an important factor in San Jose's success as he set up Barclay Goodrow's highlight reel goal to make it 2-1, and finished off a rush himself 12:15 later to make it 5-1 Sharks. All in the second period. Sheppard now has five goals and 15 points this season.

Patrick Marleau picked up two points in San Jose's big 6-3 win over Anaheim on Thursday night.

Marleau was a key factor in the win, and his two points were his personal bounty. He found Joe Thornton cross-ice down low on the power play, setting up Joe Pavelski's tying tally in the first. Marleau later beautifully deflected Brent Burns' blast to make it 3-1. He now has 10 goals and 25 points, 16 of which have come with the man advantage this season.

Antti Niemi made 25 saves in a wild 6-3 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.

Aside from Patrick Maroon beating Niemi on the short-side with 70 seconds left in the game, he could only be beaten on the rebound as Andrew Cogliano and Matt Beleskey proved. The Sharks took it to the Ducks all night long, making it a relatively easy night for the Finnish netminder. Niemi improved to 20-11-5 with 92 goals against through 36 games.

Justin Braun's upper-body injury is a hand injury.

Braun was hurt when he blocked a shot from New Jersey's Mike Cammalleri on Jan. 19 and is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks as a result. "Saw the shot from the point and tried to punch it away," Braun recalled. "I knew it was bad at that point. Eventually I dropped my stick. I tried to poke-check Marty [Havlat] and [the stick] just popped out of my hand. At that point, I pretty much knew something was pretty bad." He has a goal and 19 points in 47 games this season.
