Canucks 3, Sharks 1

Mikael Samuelsson and Mason Raymond scored in the first 11

minutes for the Vancouver Canucks in a 3-1 preseason win over the

San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.

Jeff Tambellini made it 3-0 less than eight minutes into the

second period, and rookie Cory Schneider finished with 24 saves for

the Canucks (2-4-0).

Dany Heatley scored his third goal of the preseason with 3:41

left in the second period for the Sharks (1-4-0), who left top

forwards Joe Thornton and Ryan Clowe in San Jose for the rematch on

Wednesday night.

Antti Niemi made 19 saves in his first full game for the Sharks

after winning the Stanley Cup in Chicago last season before being

let go over salary concerns and signed by San Jose.
