Patrick Marleau scored two goals and the San Jose Sharks beat Toronto 2-1 on Thursday night, sending the stumbling Maple Leafs to their seventh loss in eight games. Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke put the team on alert when he told a Toronto radio station Wednesday that he was in the market for a goalie. Judging by the team's recent play of late, he might not stop there. James Reimer started in goal against the Sharks and made 24 saves, but his record dropped to 11-9-4. Marleau was the only player to beat him with a pair of second-period goals that lifted the Sharks (32-20-7) to their first win in five games. Jake Gardiner scored for the Maple Leafs (29-25-7), who are 1-6-1 since Feb. 7.
