SAN JOSE -- Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau called it the best game of the season for his Ducks, yet it still wasn't enough to beat the red-hot San Jose Sharks. The 6-0 hosts scored late in regulation and converted the only goal of a shootout to post a comeback 3-2 win over their Pacific Division rivals on Tuesday night. "It was our best game of the season without a doubt," Boudreau said. "When was the last time the Sharks were held to 18 shots in this building in overtime? I don't remember too often." Michal Handzus scored in the shootout before five straight skaters were denied by San Jose's Antti Niemi and Anaheim's Jonas Hiller. Niemi stopped Bobby Ryan, Corey Perry and watched as Teemu Selanne hit the post. "Good teams are going to find a way to win," said Scott Gomez, who earned his first point as a Shark with the primary assist on Couture's game-tying goal with 2:45 remaining in the third period. Couture scored his fo...

Pre-game notes, Ducks @ Sharks 1/29/13

The reports about Jason Demers and Brent Burns should be considered positive developments.  The reports I mean are things like: Jason Demers practiced with the team and took line rushes with Matt Irwin this morning while Nick Petrecki and Brent Burns skated together. Still, McLellan stopped short of declaring Demers good-to-go. -Working the Corners Even if Demers isn't expected...

Sharks announce change in ownership group

San Jose Sharks majority owner Hasso Plattner has purchased the shares formerly held by investors Kevin Compton and Stratton Sclavos and will now serve as the team's representative on the NHL's Board of Governors. The Sharks announced the change on Wednesday. Plattner says there will be no changes to the day-to-day operations with general manager Doug Wilson overseeing...

Patrick Marleau named first star of the week by NHL

It should come as no surprise that Patrick Marleau has been named the first star of the week by the NHL.Marleau has enjoyed a scorching hot start to the season with a league-leading nine goals and 13 points in only five contests. In the process, he became the second player in NHL history, and first since Cy Denneny back in 1917-18, to record four consecutive multi-goal games to begin...

Sharks now unbeaten through 6 games

Michal Handzus scored the lone goal in a shootout on the first attempt to give the unbeaten San Jose Sharks a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night. Logan Couture scored for San Jose with less than 3 minutes left in the third period to tie the game at 2. He ripped a shot that appeared to deflect off the skates of Bryan Allen and trickled past Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller...

A Golden Beginning To Another Year of Getzlaf Dominion Chasing.

My love for '10-'11 Panini Dominion is no secret as I pump out post after post featuring my all-time favorite hockey product. While no hockey release will ever overtake it in my mind, there are others I enjoy, including '11-'12 Dominion. It helps that Ryan Getzlaf has cards in that product.My first posted addition from the second year of Dominion is this sweeeeet...

Bad Time For A Bad Goal

via Eric Stephens of Ducks Blog, One did get away from Jonas Hiller with 2:45 left in regulation when a wrist shot from Logan Couturethat he often gobbles right up somehow managed to skip off his glove and then between his pads for the tying goal.... “I had no idea where it went,” Hiller said. “I thought it went over me or whatever. I just got a piece with my glove...

Ducks-Sharks Preview

Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton have found the perfect way to silence the talk about whether their window for success is closing in San Jose. With Marleau scoring goals at a record pace to start the lockout-shortened season and Thornton at his playmaking best, the Sharks have won their first five games to get off to the best start in franchise history. They'll look to continue...

All good things

Jason Demers is ready to play. He took slapshots Tuesday and Wednesday, and spent some extra time working with both Larry Robinson and Jim Johnson after Tuesday's practice.  Wednesday, he was practicing with a power play unit.  That would argue for Demers being in sooner than later.  My guess is that sooner would be even sooner if Boyle is still out Thursday.  Today, Frazer...

Oilers-Sharks Preview

While the San Jose Sharks are enjoying their best start in franchise history, coach Todd McLellan feels they still need to tighten some things up. The Edmonton Oilers can't be happy to hear that. San Jose, the NHL's last remaining unbeaten, tries to pick up another two points and continue its recent dominance of the visiting Oilers as these clubs meet for the second time...

San Jose Shoots Out Anaheim to Remain Perfect

The Ducks wanted nothing more than to spoil San Jose's perfect record.  No sense letting their Pacific Division rival keep rolling along to start their season.  Anaheim came close, but in the end, the Sharks came back and got the 3-2 win in a shootout and the Ducks merely got a point for their efforts. Going into the game, the Ducks knew they would have to be at their best...
