(AP) Andrew Ladd scored the tying goal with 1:43 remaining in regulation and then delivered the shootout winner to lift the Winnipeg Jets over the San Jose Sharks 5-4 on Sunday night.


Michael Frolik, Dustin Byfulgien and Grant Clitsome also scored for the Jets. Ladd had the lone goal in the tiebreaker.


Dan Boyle scored two power-play goals for San Jose, but couldn't beat Ondrej Pavelec in the shootout. Pavelec stopped Logan Couture, Tommy Wingels and Boyle.


Tomas Hertl and Wingels each had a goal for the Sharks (10-2-5), who lost in a shootout for the third time in their last four games.


Ladd tied it late in the third period on a quick shot from the left circle with Blake Wheeler screening goalie Antti Niemi.


The Sharks took a 4-3 lead early in the third period on a precise play, with Couture's no-look, backhand pass setting up Boyle for an easy goal from point-blank range.


Patrick Marleau appeared to have scored the overtime winner for San Jose, but the goal was disallowed when Wingels made contact with Pavelec in the crease.


Niemi stopped 42 of 46 shots for the Sharks, while Pavelec made 30 saves for Winnipeg.


The Jets have won back-to-back games for the first time since the first two this season.


The Sharks took a two-goal lead into the first intermission despite being badly outplayed for much of the opening period. The Jets, who scored four first-period goals against Nashville on Friday night, were buzzing around Niemi early, but the goalie kept the game scoreless.


Winnipeg had a 10-2 lead in shots when Boyle's point shot on the power play opened the scoring for San Jose at 14:04. Less than 2 minutes later, Jason Demers sprung Hertl on a breakaway with an 80-foot pass, and Hertl beat Pavelec with a deke to his forehand for his 10th goal of the season.


The Jets drew even in the second period, beating Niemi three times on 17 shots. Frolik scored off a perfect cross-crease pass from Matt Halischuk to make it 2-1, only to see the Sharks restore their two-goal lead 41 seconds later on a high shot from in tight by Wingels.


Byfuglien scored his first goal of the season on his 64th shot on goal to make it 3-2, and Clitsome drew the Jets even with a wrist shot through traffic from 50 feet out.


NOTES: The Jets went 0 for 2 on the power play and have one power-play goal in their last 14 games. ... San Jose plays its next three games in Western Canada before a trip to Chicago next weekend. ... Winnipeg plays in Detroit on Tuesday night before returning home to face Philadelphia.
