GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney scored first-period goals, Martin Jones stopped 23 shots and the San Jose Sharks beat the slumping Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Thursday night.

Patrick Marleau added an empty-net goal as the Sharks extended their points streak to a season-best seven games and moved ahead of the Coyotes into second place in the Pacific Division.

On a night when Arizona honored Shane Doan for recently breaking the franchise’s career mark for goals, the captain assisted on Brad Richardson’s third-period score. But the Coyotes have managed just four goals in an 0-3-1 stretch.

Louis Domingue made 20 saves for Arizona. He has dropped consecutive games after going without a regulation loss in 10 starts.
