ANAHEIM, California (AP) -- Joe Pavelski and Jonathan Cheechoo

scored the tying and go-ahead goals during power plays, and the

San Jose Sharks set a franchise record with their 52nd victory,

beating the Anaheim Ducks, 3-2, on Sunday night.

Jeremy Roenick had his first goal in four months, and backup

goalie Brian Boucher stopped 19 shots for the Sharks, who lead

Boston by three points in the race for the NHL's best record.

San Jose has never won the Presidents' Trophy, despite recording

no fewer than 104 points in four of the last five seasons. The

Sharks' final three games are against the bottom three teams in

the Western Conference - Colorado, Phoenix and Los Angeles.

Petteri Nokelainen scored a shorthanded goal for Anaheim and

Cory Perry connected on the power play.
