San Jose is making a late charge to secure a playoff spot. The
Sharks have won six of seven - scoring 32 goals during that
stretch - and are one point behind Edmonton and Los Angeles for
eighth place in the West.
Vesa Toskala made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season
and Jonathan Cheechoo scored his 43rd goal - one shy of Owen
Nolan's single-season franchise record - to lead San Jose in
Tuesday's 6-0 win over St. Louis.
The Sharks have just two victories in 26 games at Detroit and
are winless here since December 20, 2000. However, they scored
five power-play goals in a 5-1 triumph over the Red Wings in
their last meeting on February 28.
