Dwayne Roloson made 48 saves and stopped three more shots in the shootout, carrying the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 win last night in San Jose, snapping the Sharks' 11-game winning streak.
Ales Hemsky scored in regulation and Fernando Pisani got the decisive shootout goal for the Oilers, who won for the fifth time in six games thanks to Roloson.
The backup goalie, who memorably led Edmonton past San Jose in the 2006 playoffs, was impeccable while winning his second start in two days after six weeks of mop-up duty behind Mathieu Garon.
Robert Nilsson also scored in the shootout for Edmonton, while Patrick Marleau managed the Sharks' only goal in four tries. San Jose, which hadn't lost since Feb. 20 during the longest winning streak in franchise history, couldn't get anything past Roloson after Marleau's first-period goal during a two-man advantage.
Evgeni Nabokov stopped 22 shots for the Sharks.
San Jose, which has the NHL's second-best record, fired a season-high 49 shots at Roloson.
Penguins 7, Flyers 1 - Evgeni Malkin and Petr Sykora each had two goals and two assists, and host Pittsburgh routed slumping Philadelphia.
Sykora set up both of Malkin's goals, and the Penguins scored seven for the second successive game to win their fifth in six games and move 1 point behind New Jersey, which leads the Eastern Conference and Atlantic Division.
The Flyers, eighth in the Eastern Conference, have lost four in a row (0-2-2) and six of eight (2-3-3).
Hurricanes 5, Senators 1 - Joe Corvo got his first career hat trick, against his former team, and Cam Ward stopped 16 shots as host Carolina routed Ottawa.
Panthers 3, Thrashers 1 - Olli Jokinen and Rostislav Olesz scored power-play goals and host Florida tied a franchise record with its seventh consecutive victory.
Blue Jackets 4, Red Wings 3 - Manny Malhotra had two goals and a career-high 3 points, and host Columbus held off Detroit to set a franchise record with 75 points.
Flames 4, Blackhawks 2 - Jarome Iginla, Kristian Huselius, and Dion Phaneuf scored in the second period, Miikka Kiprusoff made 34 saves, and visiting Calgary climbed into a tie with Minnesota and Colorado for first place in the Northwest Division.
