Dan Boyle scored on a sublime setup pass from Joe Thornton 85 seconds into overtime, and the San Jose Sharks rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday night, keeping the Flyers winless. Devin Setoguchi tied it with 4:44 left in regulation for the Sharks, whose four-game winning streak to start the season ended in Anaheim on Friday night. San Jose struggled to score against goalie Antero Niittymaki despite a 44-17 shot advantage, but Thornton collected a puck on the boards and avoided two defenders before putting it on Boyle's tape for the defenseman's first goal with the Sharks.

Danny Briere scored two goals for the Flyers, who matched their franchise-worst 0-4-1 start in 1999 despite holding a lead for most of the night. Philadelphia hasn't beaten the Sharks since 1999.
