SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Patrick Marleau scored with 22.5 seconds left and the San Jose Sharks rebounded after allowing the tying goal in the closing minute to win their third straight game, 3-2 over the New York Islanders on Friday.

Nick Leddy had tied it for New York with a one-timer off a feed from John Tavares with 57.1 seconds left but the Sharks bounced back quickly.

Brent Burns took a shot from the point that Marleau deflected in the slot past Thomas Greiss for the winner that helped San Jose improve to 7-2 at home this season.

Joe Pavelski and Brent Burns scored 34 seconds apart in the second period and backup Aaron Dell made 26 saves for the Sharks. Dell has earned both of his wins this season against the Islanders

Anders Lee also scored for New York, and Greiss made 25 saves. The Islanders have one win in eight road games this season and no regulation wins of any kind since Nov. 7.
