Pavelski Scores OT Gamewinner For Sharks

DENVER (AP) -- Joe Pavelski scored 10:24 into overtime and Evgeni Nabokov stopped 33 shots, giving the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night and tying the series at two games apiece.

This has been a tightly contested matchup with all four games being decided by a goal, the last three going into overtime.

On his game-winner, Pavelski gathered up a loose puck deep in Colorado's zone and beat Craig Anderson with a shot into the right corner.

Dan Boyle gave the Sharks an early lead, knocking in a slap shot two days after scoring on his own goalie in overtime as he attempted to clear the puck.

The Avs countered with a second-period goal by Paul Stastny, his first of the series.

Game 5 is Thursday in San Jose.
