Handzus Scores In Shootout, Sharks Beat Canucks 3-2

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (CBS/AP) — Michael Handzus scored the only goal in a shootout and the San Jose Sharks beat the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Monday night.

Jannik Hansen and Cody Hodgson scored for the Canucks in regulation.

Benn Ferriero and Patrick Marleau gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead midway through the game.

In the shootout, Handzus faked twice and then beat Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo on the stick side.

Canucks forward Ryan Kesler hit the post earlier in the shootout, after Vancouver defenseman Dan Hamhuis saw his sharp-angle shot hit the far post in overtime.

Torrey Mitchell almost won it for the Sharks in regulation when he took Jamie McGinn’s pass in the slot and beat Luongo just after the horn sounded.
