TORONTO (AP) - Mike Brown had a goal against his former team and Joe Thornton scored on a 5-on-3 power play, leading the San Jose Sharks to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night for their sixth straight win.
Brad Stuart and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks, winners of nine of 10. Phil Kessel netted his 200th career goal and Mason Raymond also scored in Toronto's fifth straight loss.
Brown opened the scoring midway through the first period, tipping a shot from defenseman Jason Demers past Leafs goaltender James Reimer.
The Sharks had a two-man advantage for 76 second when Jay McClement and Mason Raymond were peanlized 33 seconds apart. And Joe Pavelski found Thornton with plenty of room at the side of the net, and San Jose's captain made it 2-0 at 14:31.
