The Sharks (23-13-7) have outscored their opponents by 16 goals in the first period (54-38), but by just two goals after that (96-94) . . . They are 11-2-3 in home games since Nov. 3, including a 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings (17-23-3) . . . L.A. is 7-11-2 on the road, but just two of those are regulation wins (four in OT, one in a shootout) . . . San Jose captain Joe Pavelski is tied for fourth in the league with 25 goals and has a five-game point-scoring streak going for the third time this season.
