Teemu Selanne scored a pair of first-period goals and the Anaheim Ducks held off the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Monday night in their best start since their Stanley Cup-winning season five years ago. Corey Perry, last season's NHL MVP, scored for the second straight day as the Ducks won their fourth straight. In his first start of the season, Dan Ellis made 41 saves. Anaheim has won three times in four days, including a 1-0 victory over the Sharks on Friday. Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Brent Burns scored for San Jose, which has lost three straight since a season-opening win. Antti Niemi was sharp at times, making 19 saves. The Sharks goalie missed training camp and the start of the season after having a cyst removed from near his knee.
