SAN JOSE -- Jeremy Roenick's 500th career goal was also the go-ahead goal in the San Jose Sharks' 4-1 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.
Devin Setoguchi, Torrey Mitchell and Sandis Ozolinsh also scored for the Sharks, who beat the Coyotes for the fifth consecutive time. Evgeni Nabokov stopped 22 of 23 shots.
Steven Reinprecht scored for the Coyotes, who saw their two-game winning streak and five-game road winning streak end.
Roenick slapped a shot toward the net from just inside the blue line. It appeared Coyotes goalie Alex Auld had stopped the puck, but it dribbled free and slid across the line, giving the Sharks a 2-1 lead.
Roenick became the third American-born player to reach 500 goals. The nine-time All-Star ranks 40th in goals and 44th in points on the NHL career lists.
