Milan Michalek had a goal and an assist, Evgeni Nabokov made 31 saves and the San Jose Sharks reclaimed the overall NHL lead with their third home victory in four days, 3-1 over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.
Jamie McGinn also scored, Devin Setoguchi added an empty-netter, and Alexei Semenov had two assists for San Jose, which took advantage of an unusual cluster of Shark Tank appearances to get back in the race for the franchise’s first Presidents’ Trophy. San Jose improved their NHL-leading home record to 30-3-4 and earned their 106th point, two off the team record and one more than Detroit in the NHL standings.
Longtime Sharks defenseman Scott Hannan scored his first goal of the season for the last-place Avalanche.
