Regular season[edit]

On March 10, 2002, Evgeni Nabokov became the first netminder in NHL history to score a powerplay goal, doing so against the Vancouver Canucks. He was also the first European goaltender to score a goal.

On March 30, 2002, the Sharks defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets at home by a score of 10-2.[1] It was the second time in the 2001-02 NHL regular season that a team had scored 10 goals in a single game, as the Ottawa Senators had defeated the Washington Capitals on the road by a score of 11-5.[2] Furthermore, it was the first time that the Sharks had scored 10 goals in a regular-season game since January 13, 1996, when they defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins on the road by a score of 10-8.[3]
