Burns, Sharks down Stars on Pavelski's return

Thornton scores winner as Sharks beat Jackets

Kevin Labanc scored a goal and had an assist, Brent Burns had a goal, and Aaron Dell turned back 30 shots for the Sharks, who improved to 4-2-2 over their last eight games after going 1-8-1 over their previous 10.

They now own the Western Conference's second-best record, including a six-game winning streak. They really funnel a lot of pucks to the net, so it gets you scrambling.

Marleau extended his ironman streak for games played under contract to 831, the second-longest among active streak behind Florida Panthers defenseman Keith Yandle (841) and the sixth longest all-time.

After each team scored in the first period - Jamie Benn first for Dallas, then Burns for San Jose - Marleau snapped the tie at 2:56 of the second when he poked a loose puck past goalie Anton Khudobin.

Pavelski played for his former team for the first time since signing a $ 21-million, three-year contract with Dallas during the off-season. He received a video tribute and a teasing ovation from Sharks fans.

Pavelski has played 963 games in 13 seasons in San Jose and is the franchise's second-highest scorer of all time (355) and ranks third in assists (406) and points (761).

"All the noises, all the sounds, nearly everything brought back a lot of good memories", Pavelski said. "I enjoyed it. It was just fun to share it with everybody". Tyler Seguin faked a shot from the top of the left faceoff circle and passed to Benn at the top of the crease, and he deflected the pass past Dell. His 11th goal gave the Stars a quick lead at 1:32 of the first period in power play. Marleau was responsible for commemorating his historic night by scoring the winning goal of the game, taking the W by a score of 2-1.

"He surprises me every night with something else", interim Sharks coach Bob Boughner said. We just didn't put ourselves into position to forecheck. They started with us very quickly.

The Sharks swept their two-game homestand and will travel to Arizona for a game Tuesday night.

Game notes Dallas D John Klingberg (lower body injury) skated on Saturday and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Marleau also skated in his 831st consecutive regular-season game since April 9, 2009 and passed Andrew Cogliano (830 games from October 4, 2007 to January 13, 2018) for the fifth-longest streak in National Hockey League history.

Thornton, who scored his second goal of the season, kicked in his 1,612.

With 35 games remaining in the Sharks' season, Marleau could pass Jagr for third on the list with 1,735 games.
