@ SAN JOSE, CA:

    The Red Wings began the west
coast portion of their five game
road trip with a 5-3 loss at San
Jose late Monday night.

    The Sharks led most of the way as Detroit lost its seventh in a row (0-6-1).  

    S-Jose became 3-2 in the month of March, alternating wins and losses.

    Detroit took the early lead at 5:01/1 when Trevor Daley (#9) shot from
between the top of the circles to convert a Henrik Zetterberg end zone pass.

    San Jose tied it up 1-1 at 10:55/1 when Joonas Donskoi (#13) completed
a 3-way passing play from Joe Pavelski and Evander Kane to shoot into a
wide open right side of the net.

    The Sharks went ahead 2-1 less than 2-mins later at 12:39/1 during a
Detroit delayed penalty as Eric Fehr (#1) redirected a Brendan Dillon
left point shot.

    The teams exchanged goals early in the middle period.  S-Jose's Kevin
Leblanc (#9) tucked the puck underneath Howard at 1:39/2.  Gustav Nyquist
(#17) banked a blue ice rebound for the Wings to make it 3-2 at 5:05/2.

    Timo Meier (#18) gave the Sharks a two goal bulge on the power play
at 5:12/3 when he upward deflected a slot shot from Mikkel Boedker.

    It took only 41-sec for the Wings to get back within one at 4-3 when
Zetterberg (#10) converted from the lower right circle on a Nyquist end
zone pass to beat SJ goalie Martin Jones on the short side.

    Chris Tierney (#17) clinched the S-Jose win with an empty net goal
shot from center ice at 18:26/3.

    Howard made 29-SV and Jones 23.

    Tyler Bertuzzi assisted on all three Detroit goals.


OVERTIME:

     Zetterberg's 336th career goal moved the Detroit Capt. past Ted Lindsay
for sole possession of fifth place in franchise history.  Zetterberg's gave him
950 career points, four shy from tying Sergei Fedorov for fifth in franchise
history.
