SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA (TICKER) —The San Jose Sharks seek to build on their first regulation victory of the month when they host the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.

San Jose ended a four-game losing streak with a 3-2 triumph over Calgary on Saturday. Vincent Damphousse snapped a third-period tie with a goal on the power play.

Chicago and San Jose have met three times this season with each team winning once as well as skating to a tie. The Sharks got a goal and two assists from Damphousse in winning the last matchup, a 4-2 triumph on February 14.

Owen Nolan, who was traded to Toronto last week, scored a shorthanded goal and had two assists for San Jose, which converted three of six chances on the power play. Nolan assisted on Damphousse’s power-play goal that snapped a tie with just over five minutes left.

The Blackhawks are completing a three-game road trip after posting a 4-0 victory at Phoenix on Friday. Steve Sullivan scored twice and Jocelyn Thibault faced just 21 shots for his eighth shutout.

Chicago is nearly out of playoff contention, trailing eighth-place Edmonton by 11 points in the Western Conference standings. San Jose, which won its first Pacific Division title last year, is three points behind Chicago.
