Video: Marleau’s four-goal night



Patrick Marleau exploded for four goals in the third period to give the Sharks a 5-2 win over the Avalanche on Monday night.

Marleau is the 12th player in NHL history to score four goals in a period, and the first since former Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux on Jan. 26, 1997 against the Montreal Canadiens.

“It was a good period to have,” said Marleau, who had gone seven games without a goal and has 16 this season and 497 in his NHL career. Via: NHL.comĀ
