We guess you can say "They did what they had to do". The San Jose Sharks jumped out to an early 3-0 lead at home versus the Vancouver Canucks.
Two early goals by Patrick Marleau set the tone for San Jose who played a much more aggressive and consistent game in front of the hometown crowd.
Joe Thornton tallied 3 assists and Anti Niemi had 27 saves as the Sharks made a series of it. Vancouver won the first two games at home, the series now sits at 2-1.
Game 4 is Sunday afternoon in San Jose.
