Brent Burns was the other goal scorer for the Sharks. With his 20th goal in is 48th game Burns became the fastest defenseman to hit the 20-goal mark since Kevin Hatcher scored 20 in 48 games for Washington in 1992-1993.

Patrick Marleau scores four in third, first since '97 to achieve feat
The Sharks were deadlocked with the last-place Colorado Avalanche on Monday night at the Pepsi Center. Then Patrick Marleau took over. The 37-year-old winger scored four goals in the third period (see all four in the video above) to power San Jose to a 5-2 victory over Colorado. Marleau becomes just the 12th player in NHL history to score four goals in a period and the first since 1997.
