Wire sports briefs: Sharks score early to beat Oilers

SAN JOSE (AP) — Brent Burns and Patrick Marleau scored goals 49 seconds apart in the first period to lead the San Jose Sharks to their fifth win in six games, 5-1 over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

Bracken Kearns and Logan Couture added goals 1:27 apart in the second period to give each scores in three straight games as the Sharks beat the Oilers for the sixth straight time. Joe Pavelski added a goal and an assist and Antti Niemi made 23 saves for San Jose.

Nail Yakupov scored the lone goal for the last-place Oilers.

The Sharks have been tough at home so far, losing just once in regulation. San Jose needed to go to a shootout in five of its previous eight home games before dispatching the Oilers easily by scoring twice in each of the first two periods against Devan Dubnyk.

The Sharks got off to a fast start once again, breaking out to a 2-0 lead in the first period for the 15th time in 41 games this season.

San Jose squandered a pair of early power-play chances and needed Niemi to make two pad stops on Sam Gagner on one of them to keep the game scoreless.

The Sharks then used great puck movement on their first goal and a takeaway for their second to take the 2-0 lead.

76ers defeat Kings for the sixth straight time in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Thaddeus Young had 28 points, Evan Turner had 24 and the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Sacramento Kings 113-104 on Thursday night for their third straight victory.

The suddenly surging 76ers took the lead early in the second quarter and never trailed again in winning their third consecutive road game after losing the previous 13.

Young had a career-high six steals, including five in the first half, tying the arena record. Turner added 10 rebounds and six assists.

DeMarcus Cousins scored 22 of his 33 points in the opening half for the Kings, who committed 23 turnovers and lost their sixth home game in a row to the 76ers.

Isaiah Thomas had 23 points and seven assists, and Rudy Gay scored 18. Jimmer Fredette had 12 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, and Derrick Williams scored 11.

Cousins, who had 14 rebounds, picked up his fourth foul early in the third quarter and sat out the remainder of the period. He was called for his fifth foul less than three minutes into the fourth.

Fredette started the fourth quarter and scored 10 points in just under 4 minutes, rallying the Kings to 98-93. But the 76ers countered with nine straight points to increase their lead to 14 at the 3:56 mark, and Sacramento never threatened again.
