SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Vesa Toskala came within three minutes of his second straight pre-season shutout and Milan Michalek scored two goals to lead the San Jose Sharks past the Calgary Flames 5-1 on Saturday night.

Toskala, before giving up a late third-period goal to Andrei Zyuzin, had gone more than 119 minutes without allowing a pre-season goal. He shut out Vancouver on Tuesday and seems to have secured the starting goalie role in his battle with Evgeni Nabokov.

Patrick Marleau, Mark Bell and Joe Thornton added goals as the Sharks (6-2-0) finished winning five of their final six games.

Jamie McLennan and Brent Krahn combined to record 28 saves on 33 shots as the Flames (3-3-1) closed out their pre-season with three straight losses.

Michalek took the NHL lead when he scored his sixth goal of the pre-season, taking a pass from right wing Steve Bernier and tapping the puck past McLennan with 1:14 left in the first period. He added his seventh goal of the pre-season and second of the game midway through the third period.
