The San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks were deadlocked 3-3 during a furious overtime battle Tuesday night, and the chants of "Sweep! Sweep! Sweep" rained down yet again at HP Pavilion.

Sharks forward Patrick Marleau, the franchise's all-time leader in playoff goals, gave the 17,562 fans what they wanted. Marleau knocked a rebound past goaltender Cory Schneider at 13:18 of overtime for a power-play goal, giving the Sharks a 4-3 win and the first playoff sweep in franchise history.

The Sharks beat Vancouver four straight times to win their Western Conference Quarterfinal series. Their first-ever sweep came one year after they were bounced by the St. Louis Blues in the first round in five games, the fastest playoff exit in franchise history.
