For the second straight year, San Jose is off to an impressive start.

Just one year after going 7-0-0 to begin the season, the Sharks moved to 7-0-1 in 2013-14 thanks to a 6-3 victory over Calgary in San Jose on Saturday night.

The win kept the Sharks as the NHL’s only team without a loss in regulation, and kept them atop the overall league standings with 15 points after eight games played.

The win against Calgary came courtesy a four-point performance from Joe Pavelski, the game’s first star. Pavelski, 29, scored a pair of power-play goals and chipped in with two assists to bring his overall point total on the year to 12, eighth-highest in the NHL.

San Jose also got goals from Brent Burns, Patrick Marleau, Logan Couture and Scott Hannan.

Sean Monahan, Jiri Hudler and Mikael Backlund replied for the Flames, who’ve now lost two straight and three of their last five.
