NHL: Florida Panthers at San Jose Sharks Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

Micheal Haley scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night as the fourth line continues to dominate the Arizona Coyotes on the score sheet. He beat Mike Smith by smashing a one-timer home from near the Arizona blue line to put San Jose ahead 3-0.

The goal is Haley’s second point of the night and continues a barrage of scoring from the San Jose bottom forward unit. Arizona is fighting with Colorado for the top pick in the 2017 draft and its fourth line is no match for the Chris Tierney, Melker Karlsson and Haley unit.

San Jose didn’t start the game so hot in terms of shots on goal but the Sharks have continued to build their lead as the night has gone on. Karlsson has three points to lead the team so far more than midway through the game. Arizona leads the Sharks in shots, but it’s San Jose that holds the lead on the scoreboard.
