Rangers Fall Late to Sharks; Lose 2-3

Evgeni Nabokov made 17 of his 32 saves in the frantic third period, and the San Jose Sharks recovered from rare back-to-back defeats with a 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Dan Boyle, Ryane Clowe and captain Patrick Marleau scored for the Sharks, who were back home after a 1-1-1 road trip that ended with the overall NHL leaders' worst loss of the season, a 6-0 thrashing in Detroit on Thursday.

The Atlantic Division-leading Rangers dominated the third period and repeatedly came agonizingly close to the tying goal, but Nabokov coolly kept the Sharks unbeaten in regulation in 19 games at the Tank (17-0-2) this season.
