ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks scored twice in the third period to shock the visiting San Jose Sharks in a 2-1 win on Monday night at the Honda Center. At 13:21 of the third period, Anaheim's Sheldon Souray banged a slap shot past San Jose goalie Thomas Greiss, who started in place of undefeated Antti Niemi, after the puck moved around the offensive zone. Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin passed the puck to center Ryan Getzlaf, who continued it around the San Jose defense to Souray. Souray unleashed a quick high shot just inside the blue line and past Greiss for his third goal of the season. In a matchup of the top two teams in the NHL's Pacific Division, the Ducks languished for much of the game as the Sharks controlled the puck after Logan Couture gave them an early lead with his sixth goal of the season. Anaheim mounted an offensive rally in the second period, attempting 14 shots, but none got by Greiss. It wasn't until midway through the third period...
BEST OF MAXIM
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- All it took to keep the Anaheim Ducks close after the visiting San Jose Sharks took an early lead in a Monday night matchup between the two hottest teams in the NHL's Pacific Division: a little grit. All it took for the Ducks to tie it up late: a little luck. All it took for Anaheim to finally seize control: a little Sheldon Souray. The Ducks scored twice...
Anaheim Ducks center Saku Koivu scored the tying goal against the San Jose Sharks last night. One needs to watch until the third replay to actually see the damn thing.

Saku Koivu scored the tying goal early in the third period, defenseman Sheldon Souray netted the winner with 6:39 left, and rookie Viktor Fasth made 25 saves as the Anaheim Ducks handed the San Jose Sharks their first regulation loss of the season, 2-1 on Monday night.
The Sharks, who won their first seven games before a 2-1 shootout loss to Nashville on Saturday, lead the Pacific...
from Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog,
Viktor Fasth has proven to be a quick study and a welcome presence in the Ducks’ dressing room. The 30-year-old goaltender has only been with his new team for a few weeks but is talking like a confident, 10-year veteran.
Fasth starred on Monday night, making 25 saves and standing tall in the end to preserve the Ducks’ 2-1 victory over...
As the momentum from the United States' triumph at the World Junior Championships spilled over into the start of an abbreviated NHL season, there was much ado about Anaheim Ducks 2011 second-rounder John Gibson.
Gibson, who carried the Americans to gold in Ufa, was extended an invitation to Ducks camp and widely seen as the goaltender of the future in Anaheim. As for the...
Doug Murray would be an interesting trade target.
In Andrew Gross’s post-game wrap of the Rangers win over the Lightning, he mentioned a little nugget about San Jose scout John Ferguson Jr., who was attending his second straight Ranger game. While this could just be JFJ and the Sharks doing their homework for the trade deadline, it got me thinking as to who would be a potential...
The Anaheim Ducks (6-1-1) used a little bit of luck and whole lot of goalie Viktor Fasth to become the first team to defeat the San Jose Sharks in regulation in this young season.
The Ducks 2-1 victory Monday night ended San Jose's eight-game points streak (7-0-1) and helped solidify the Ducks spot as one of the Western Conferences better teams.
Sheldon Souray fired a...
The Anaheim Ducks (5-1-1) can put an exclamation point on a heck of a weekend tonight with a win against the Pacific Division leading San Jose Sharks.
If the Ducks are going to go for the tri-fecta after dispatching both the Minnesota Wild and Los Angeles Kings they must continue to spread the scoring wealth around. In Anaheim's first seven games, 11 different players have...
Ryan Leong with a preview of tonight's game. Cam will have post-game analysis.
One thing is now certain, the Sharks will NOT go 48-0-0. Saturday night, the Predators played a disciplined team game and were nearly perfect for 60 minutes. In the end, although the Sharks took the game to a shootout and get a point, Team Teal failed to extend their winning streak to eight...
First Freeway Faceoff of the year between the Ducks and Kings. Never a dull game, despite how each team is doing. They always manage to bring their highest energy to the game, players and fans included.
Of 109 match ups between these two teams, #109 went to Anaheim, who soundly defeated their division rivals 7-4.
Offense was not lacking. Defense was on the Kings side...
Both the Chicago Blackhawks and San Jose Sharks come into Tuesday night’s game struggling offensively. The Sharks have scored only six total goals in their last four games, leading to a 2-1-1 record (both wins coming in a shootout).
