SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Milan Michalek scored a hat trick to lead San Jose to a 4-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks in the Sharks' home pre-season opener Thursday night.

Michalek's third goal broke a 3-3 tie with just over 2 minutes left after the Canucks had rallied from a 3-0 deficit.

He tallied his first goal when he put a backhander past goalie Roberto Luongo. It came on a power play in the first 90 seconds of the game. Michalek then scored his second goal with 10 minutes remaining in the second period.

Jonathan Cheechoo, who led the NHL in goals last season, added his first of the pre-season on a power play.

The Sharks (2-1) were leading 3-0 when Vancouver (0-2) mounted a comeback. Jannick Hansen tallied Vancouver's first goal with just 12 seconds left in the second period.
