After getting some momentum at the end of the first period on Kevin Shattenkirk’s first career goal, the Sharks immediately took over control of the game at the start of the second period. Defenseman Dan Boyle flipped a shot past Peter Budaj, giving him a goal and an assist in the game so far. Joe Thornton and Ryan Clowe assisted on the goal.
A Shattenkirk delay of game penalty placed the Sharks on the power play for the fifth time in the game. This time, Colorado was unable to kill off the penalty. With ten seconds left in the penalty, San Jose rookie Mike Moore fired a shot from the point that deflected off a skate and past Budaj for his first ever career goal. San Jose is now 1 for 5 on the power play.
