SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) _ Marco Sturm scored the game-winner with 15.3 seconds left as San Jose scored all of their goals in the final six minutes of a 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.

The Sharks finally got one past Boston goalie Byron Dafoe with 5:20 to go when Brad Stuart’s shot from the just inside the blue line went through defenseman Don Sweeney’s legs and past Dafoe to cut it to 2-1. It was Stuart’s first goal of the season.

Owen Nolan tied it on a power play with 1:35 left, putting in a pass from Vincent Damphousse.

The Sharks were 0-fo-7 on the power play, including a two-man advantage midway through the second period, until Nolan’s goal.

Sturm scored on a backhander from 15 feet out after a flurry of activity in front of the Boston net as the Sharks outshot the Bruins 16-5 in the final period.

Boston’s Martin LaPointe scored from point-blank range at 11:13 of the first period for a 1-0 lead. He picked up a loose puck after a scramble in front of the net, and his shot deflected off San Jose goalie Mikka Kiprusoff and in. It was Lapointe’s third goal of the season.

The Bruins took a 2-0 lead at 17:27 of the second period on a short-handed goal by Brian Rolston, his third of the season. Rolston got the puck in the Bruins’ end, drove down the ice and scored from 15 feet.
