GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Ryane Clowe had two goals and an assist, Vesa Toskala made 29 saves and the San Jose Sharks beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1 Saturday night.

Jonathan Cheechoo and Matt Carle also scored, and Joe Thornton added three assists for the Sharks, who won for the fifth time in six games.

Shane Doan scored for the Coyotes, losers of two straight after a seven-game winning streak.

Clowe broke a 1-1 tie at 14:28 of the second period when he one-timed Doug Murray's pass from the left boards over Curtis Joseph's left shoulder for his eighth goal in five games.

Carle made it 3-1 just 51 seconds into the third when he gained control of a long rebound near the left end line and slipped the puck behind Joseph. Cheechoo added a power-play goal with 9:31 remaining, redirecting Christian Ehrhoff's shot from the point.

Clowe had given the Sharks an early lead on San Jose's third and final shot of the first period, taking a pass from Thornton in the low slot and scoring off a quick wrist shot.
