VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Tommy Wingels scored his second goal of the game with 6:04 left in the second period to put San Jose ahead, and the Sharks continued their perfect preseason with a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.
Cody Hodgson, Alexander Sulzer and Nolan Baumgartner scored for the Canucks (2-3-0), who eliminated San Jose in the Western Conference final last May. Third-string goalie Eddie Lack made 30 saves as Vancouver continued to rest all of its top players for a fifth straight preseason game.
Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome didn't play the third period with an injured hand. Vancouver minor-league forward Steven Pinzotto also left in the first period with a shoulder injury and did not return.
Desjardins shot from atop the faceoff circle with 9:17 left and it went in off Baumgartner, and became the game-winner when Baumgartner converted a 5-on-3 with 2:57 left.
