Ward, Marleau lead Sharks to victory over Blue Jackets 3-2

Mikkel Boedker and Joel Ward scored for an early lead and Patrick Marleau had a power-play goal, leading the San Jose Sharks over the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Saturday night.

Martin Jones made 26 saves for San Jose, which beat the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 in its season opener Wednesday.

Zach Werenski and Josh Anderson each got his first goal for Columbus, which has lost its first two games this season.

Boedker scored 9:22 into the first period when a dump-in play by Logan Couture led to a tricky rebound off goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. The puck was deflected to Boedker, who buried it over Bobrovsky’s left shoulder.
