Marleau's hat trick lifts Sharks past Avs 4-1

DENVER (AP) - Patrick Marleau had a hat trick, Thomas Greiss stopped 35 shots and the San Jose Sharks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Sunday night.

Joe Pavelski also scored, Mark-Edouard Vlasic had three assists and Joe Thornton added two assists for the Sharks, who have won three straight and five of their last six.

Matt Duchene had a goal and Jean-Sebastien Giguere had 14 saves for Colorado, which fell to 3-7 on home ice.

The Sharks controlled the play to start the second period and finally broke through on Marleau's second goal of the game. Marleau scored when he redirected a shot by Vlasic with 12:20 left to make it 2-1.

Colorado pressed for the equalizer, outshooting the Sharks 9-1 over the next nine minutes, but San Jose struck again. Pavelski one-timed Thorton's pass from behind the net to give the Sharks a 3-1 lead with 3:13 left in the second.
