Evgeni Nabokov stopped 31 shots for his 43rd career shutout, Milan Michalek scored two goals and the San Jose Sharks beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Tuesday night.
The Western Conference-leading Sharks won for the sixth time in seven games.
It was Nabokov's third shutout of the season, and first in just over a month. Patrick Marleau scored an empty-net goal with 37.2 seconds remaining.
Nabokov made several sensational saves, including one by the seat of his pants in the first period, thwarting Ryan Smyth's potential score by landing on top of the puck as Nabokov slowly drifted inside the net.
