Joe Pavelski scored two goals and the San Jose Sharks bounced back from a loss at Edmonton by beating the Oilers 5-2 in the back end of a home-and-home set Tuesday night.

Barclay Goodrow, Logan Couture and Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks, who have won five of six with the only loss coming on Sunday night in Edmonton to the worst team in the Western Conference.

Alex Stalock made 25 saves as he started consecutive games for the first time since last March.

Jordan Eberle, David Perron scored for the Oilers, who were unable to carry over the momentum from their 2-1 win over the Sharks that snapped an 11-game losing streak. Ben Scrivens made 19 saves.
