Clowe's 2 Goals Lead Sharks In Blowout Win over Capitals

Caps haven't beat Sharks this century

Ryane Clowe scored two goals, Rob Blake had four assists and the San Jose Sharks improved the NHL's best record to 17-3-1 with a 7-2 victory over the road-weary Washington Capitals on Saturday night.

Joe Thornton and captain Patrick Marleau each had a goal and an assist for San Jose, which improved to 11-0-1 at the Shark Tank with yet another dominant puck-possession performance. Mike Grier scored with 52.3 seconds to play, allowing San Jose to match its highest goal total of the season.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Devon Setoguchi also added a goal and an assist as the Sharks shook the rink rust from a four-day layoff in plenty of time to finish the Capitals, who haven't beaten San Jose in this century.
