LOS ANGELES (AP) - Patrick Marleau had three goals, Jonathan Cheechoo scored twice to end a seven-game drought, and the San Jose Sharks routed the Los Angeles Kings 7-3 Thursday night.

Steve Bernier had a goal and an assist, and Milan Michalek had three assists for the Sharks, who earned their third straight road win. Vesa Toskala made 35 saves and improved to 4-0 against Los Angeles.

Alexander Frolov, Brian Willsie and Sean Avery scored for the Kings, who have won only three of 15 games and have allowed 22 goals the last four games.

San Jose scored its first four goals during a 5:14 span of the opening period against Mathieu Garon, who has surrendered 12 goals on 43 shots over his last two starts.

The Sharks, who came in with an NHL-best 24.5 percentage on the power play, converted the first time they had the man advantage after Garon was given a tripping penalty during a goal-mouth scramble. Marleau tied it 1-1 at 11:25 of the opening period after Garon failed to control the rebound on a one-timer by Christian Ehrhoff.
