Sharks' Marleau scores two more, including winner vs. Coyotes

San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - Patrick Marleau continued his torrid start to the season, scoring two of the Sharks' four third-period goals, and San Jose rallied to beat the Phoenix Coyotes, 5-3, in its home opener at HP Pavilion.

Joe Thornton registered a goal and three assists for the Sharks, who opened the season with wins at Calgary and Edmonton.

Steve Sullivan had a goal and an assist for Phoenix, which squandered a 3-1 lead in the third. Jason LaBarbera, starting in place of Mike Smith, stopped 30 shots.

Smith missed the game with a lower-body injury suffered in Wednesday's home win over Columbus.
