SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Devin Setoguchi recorded his first career hat trick and Ian White recorded a point in his first game with San Jose as the Sharks beat Colorado, 4-0, on Saturday, extending Colorado's winless streak to 10 games.

Ryane Clowe also scored for the Sharks, who have worked themselves back into the playoff picture by winning their eighth in 10 games. The Sharks moved into the fourth spot in the Western Conference.

White, the newly acquired defenseman from Carolina and playing for his third team this season, assisted on Setoguchi's second goal.

Antti Niemi made 25 saves to record his fifth shutout of the season and the 12th of his career. Colorado's Peter Budaj was under siege all night, stopping 29-of-33 shots.

San Jose scored three times in the first period, twice on  the power play.

The Avalanche is 0-9-1 over its past 10 games, the club's longest winless streak since relocating to Denver from Quebec for the 1995-96 season.

Setoguchi scored his first goal 6:29 into the game after taking a pass from Jason Demers and splitting two defenders for an unhindered shot at the net.

Setoguchi scored a power-play goal about eight minutes later, redirecting a rebounded shot from White off the boards with Budaj caught looking the wrong way.

He completed the hat trick with less than two minutes remaining after winning a battle for the puck along the boards and sprinting, without any interference, straight to the net.

Notes: Sharks C Scott Nichol left with an injury in the first period and did not return to the game. ... D Douglas Murray recorded his second assist in 24 games for the Sharks. ... The Avs went 0-for-3 on the power play and are 1-for-28 in their past 10 games.
