SAN JOSE -- Joe Thornton and Devin Setoguchi scored two goals each and the San Jose Sharks beat Phoenix 5-0 on Monday night, their second win over the Coyotes in three days.
Mike Grier also scored and Evgeni Nabokov stopped 25 shots for his second shutout as the Sharks earned consecutive home wins for the first time this season. They beat the Coyotes 4-1 at the Shark Tank on Saturday night.
This one became heated early when Phoenix's Shane Doan hit Milan Michalek during the first shift, sending him to the locker room with a strained left elbow. Steve Bernier got into it with Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris soon after and both teams appeared to play with added fire throughout the game.
Joe Pavelski was chopped to the ice on a breakaway midway through the first period and was awarded his first NHL penalty shot. Tellqvist stopped the attempt down low.
Never miss a local story.
Thornton scored on a rebound in the second period and on the power play in the third.
