Patrick Marleau became the second player in NHL history to open a season with four straight multigoal games, striking twice on the power play in the first period in the San Jose Sharks' 4-0 victory against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

Marleau has scored exactly two goals in each game this season, joining Ottawa's Cy Denneny in 1917-18 as the only players to open a campaign with four multigoal games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Both of Marleau's goals came after Ryan O'Byrne took two additional minor penalties for retaliating after San Jose's Brad Stuart flattened Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog with a vicious hit.
