Thursday, September 29, 2011
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Thomas Greiss stopped 25 shots and the San Jose Sharks remained unbeaten in preseason play, beating the Vancouver Canucks 3-0 on Thursday night.
Joe Pavelski, Dan Boyle and Jamie McGinn scored for the Sharks (5-0), who beat the Canucks for the second time in a week.
Joe Thornton assisted on the first two goals as the Sharks used their regulars for longer periods on the ice. Ryane Clowe added his team-leading fourth assist on the final goal.
The Canucks (2-5), who lost to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night, again choose to keep many of their stars off the ice. Mikael Samuelsson and Manny Malhotra were the only Canucks to play who recorded double figures in goals last season.
