TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau scored power-play goals to help the San Jose Sharks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Sunday.

The Sharks, with the NHL's top power-play unit, converted two of three chances. Ryane Clowe scored his first career NHL goal, Mike Grier added an empty-net goal and Evgeni Nabokov stopped 18 shots for San Jose.

Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis scored power-play goals for the Lightning.

Thornton scored at 4:02 of the first on the Sharks' only power play during the first two periods. The centre hadn't had a goal in 12 previous games since April 15.

Clowe, who returned after missing the past six games because of a foot injury, made it 2-0 at 2:51 of the second. Grier set up the goal, beating Tampa Bay defenceman Doug Janik to the puck behind the net and passing it to Clowe.
