GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) - The San Jose Sharks and Phoenix Coyotes, who meet on Saturday, are a study of two teams going in opposite directions.

The Sharks have won three straight after an impressive 7-3 pounding of the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.

Patrick Marleau led the Sharks with three goals while Jonathan Cheechoo added a pair. Vesa Toskala turned aside 35-of-38 shots.

Milak Michalek and Patrick Rissmiller each had three assists for the Sharks, who were outshot, 38-26.

The slumping Coyotes, who have lost three of their last four, try to rebound from a difficult 1-0 loss to the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

Dallas' Brenden Morrow scored the only goal of the game on the power play while Marty Turco only had to make 13 stops to record the shutout.

Phoenix netminder Curtis Joseph, who has struggled this season, was sharp in recording 34 saves.
