Joe Pavelski had two goals to become the fourth player in team history with 40 goals in a season and the San Jose Sharks closed out the regular season with a 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night.

Pavelski scored his 40th goal on a power play early in the first period and added No. 41 midway through to join Owen Nolan, Jonathan Cheechoo and Patrick Marleau in San Jose's 40-goal club.

Logan Couture also scored and Dan Boyle had a pair of assists for the Sharks, who will face the Los Angeles Kings in the opening round of the playoffs.

Antti Niemi stopped 30 shots, including Shane Doan on a breakaway late in the third period.

Mike Ribeiro and Doan scored for Phoenix, which lost its seventh straight.
