Patrick Marleau on his team's 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.
-- San Jose Sharks -- able to win back to back road games scoring only two goals in consecutive games Patrick Marleau joins us now. Patrick -- Columbus is at their difficulties this year but they've been a tough game for -- two games in a row now -- No definite they played us tough and you know there we have -- good players over there still and you know there there were some things -- have been take these last two games. Patrick one goal games are fairly common with the San Jose Sharks what is it about the Sharks in one goal games if they're able to stay composed and get that. Extra needed goal that ends up with the -- it while we've we've played enough room CDs and a confidence problem. -- obviously we'd like to have a little bit of a cushion we're pretty confident that the league -- so one vote in the we people involved Patrick obviously a big goal for you coming late in the game for the winner. Talk about the play. The outcome was he's fired up the middle and we're -- with a good some. I was just able to a certain confidence through through -- Centrist. And came right to me so -- the it could be quick shot off and no -- the wide open cages and -- what you see the wide open cage they'll what do you what do you think you're thinking get up for as soon as you can't. It is turn to get it on that Danica -- solider solid shot on it yes it was like Canada you know -- you trying to get it up obviously the winters ago came very very army. Right on my hands as I was shoot and so it didn't get up but the if Huntsman and. -- a lot of people look at the Sharks schedule going forward for the rest of this month and next month and look at it as rather daunting because of all the road games and you're in the midst of part of that stretch right now how do you guys look at it. Well we've just to make ground I think. To be nice to see where we would be out of the plates and millions of other teams with have been so you take care of it you schemes the -- and Hannan and Wyndham and to criminal -- -- what's important on the road for you. For me first half kept just to have energy to get my legs going her way. Have a good warm ups but target in the particularly and cause some turnovers in the three chances for. And despite the fact you played here tonight I would think the fact you've played fewer games than everyone else gets a little more gas in the tank right now and you're gonna. Need that tomorrow night. Definitely gonna definitely muted and you know and Chicago's that's been in a tough game with we'll get a rest known injury to -- pleasures such. Excellent condition while that's nothing for you right but those will be in center and -- half. Attacking well on my intended of the great -- with us all season. -- -- its books. He's the he's got the heart rate monitor moments and you name it he's you know the Cardinals -- -- that we -- Arnold was. I'm gonna leave that alone he is the best strength and conditioning coach Italy it is no question about Patrick congratulations on the win and thanks to this thanks guys. Patrick Marleau with the game winner tonight for the San Jose Sharks late no question the Columbus. After Rick Nash tied it with a terrific goal gains of energy from that but the Sharks found a way to win and what are the keys of the game with shots or we talked to Todd when Todd McLellan about it we talked to. Of course Joseph -- -- at least shot to the net in its the second shot things are going in so there's. Constant dropping where's the stone certainly paid off for the Sharks tonight and for the second straight game the Sharks get excellent goaltending. In Winnipeg was anti Niemi at tonight Thomas -- terrific as well as the Sharks. -- talk about that magic number three but in the last two games that magic number has turned out to be two guys.
