Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Patrick Marleau supplied the decisive shootout goal, as the San Jose Sharks edged the Detroit Red Wings, 3-2, at Joe Louis Arena.

Each team scored in the first round of the penalty-shot tiebreaker before the goaltenders traded stops in the next round.

Gustav Nyquist was the third shooter for Detroit and he went with a spin-o- rama backhand, but San Jose netminder Antti Niemi denied the flashy attempt with his left skate.

Marleau then beat Detroit's Jimmy Howard through the five-hole with a wrister.
