Phoenix's Radim Vrbata scored late in the second period.

He got Alex Stalock to drop to his knees with a deke and then squeezed a shot between the goalie's skate and the far post on a wraparound.

The Sharks' Bracken Kearns scored early in the third period, one-timing a shot past Thomas Greiss after a scramble in Phoenix's end.

Greiss, signed as Mike Smith's backup in the offseason, stopped 25 shots.

Stalock, competing to be Antti Niemi's backup, had 24 saves.
