EDMONTON, Alberta — Joe Pavelski scored three goals and set up another as the San Jose Sharks snapped a two-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the struggling Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

Patrick Marleau and Marty Havlat also scored for the Sharks (47-18-9) who moved four points up on idle Anaheim for the Pacific Division lead and remained two points behind St. Louis for first in the Western Conference.

San Jose clinched a playoff spot in a shootout loss to Calgary on Monday.

David Perron and Taylor Hall scored for the second-to-last place Oilers (25-39-9), who have lost three in a row. Edmonton was beaten 8-1 by the Calgary Flames on Sunday after a 3-1 defeat to the last-place Buffalo Sabres.

The Oilers started the scoring just over four minutes in when Perron went around Tyler Kennedy before putting a shot past Antti Niemi. It was Perron’s team-leading 26th goal.

San Jose tied it 6:28 into the second on Pavelski’s first goal of the night. Ben Scrivens made the initial stop on a shot from the slot by Marleau, but the rebound angled to Pavelski at the side of the net for his 35th goal.

Another power-play goal midway through the period gave San Jose a 2-1 lead. Pavelski chopped a puck to Marleau at the top of the opposite circle, and he scored before Scrivens could get across. It was Marleau’s 31st goal.

The Sharks took a two-goal lead with 30 seconds left in the middle period after Jeff Petry overskated a puck at his blue line, allowing Havlat to come in and put a wrist shot past Scrivens stickside.

San Jose scored its third man-advantage goal of the game at 1:17 of the third period. Pavelski got the puck with space in front, waited for defender Andrew Ference to go down, and then beat Scrivens to make it 4-1.

Pavelski finished his third hat trick of the season with seven minutes left in the third. Pavelski’s four-point night gave him 71 points on the season.

Hall brought the Oilers within 5-2 when he got to a rebound in front and hooked in a diving backhand shot for his 25th goal.

The Oilers have been outscored 16-4 in their last three home games.
