Nick Bjugstad scored twice during regulation and added the winning goal in the shootout as the Florida Panthers won their fourth straight in San Jose, beating the Sharks 3-2 on Thursday night.

San Jose's Patrick Marleau tied it with 33 seconds remaining in regulation, taking a pass from Joe Thornton and firing it past Roberto Luongo, who had stopped Marleau's penalty shot earlier in the third period.

Luongo stopped 28 shots and won for the fourth time in his last five games against the Sharks. The Panthers swept the season series.

Logan Couture ended a season-worst eight-game goal-less streak with a power-play tally for the Sharks, who played at home for the first time in two weeks.

Antti Niemi made 26 saves for the Sharks, who failed to win for the third time in their last four at home.
