Anaheim Ducks News - Ducks Beat Sharks 2-1 (SO)

That was a fun game to watch. Giguere and the Ducks stand strong and win their fourth straight game.  The Ducks  are 6 -1 -1 in the month of November.  I am beginning to think that the Ducks have finally found some chemistry.  Either way here is the game coverage

Anaheim Ducks Game Report

Corey Perry scored the only goal in the shootout and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 31 saves to lead the Ducks to their fourth straight win, 2-1 over San Jose on Saturday night.

Perry shot second for the Ducks in the tiebreaker, skating out wide to his right before swooping in front of the crease and lifting a backhand shot over a sprawling Evgeni Nabokov.

Giguere then stopped Joe Pavelski at the other end to clinch the win. Giguere had earlier stopped Devin Setoguchi and Patrick Marleau in the shootout to extend the defending Stanley Cup champions' longest winning streak of the season. The current run started with a shootout win over the Sharks on Nov. 9.

San Jose had won four straight since that loss in Anaheim in the first meeting of the season between the Pacific Division rivals.

MVN Game Report

The first time the Ducks and Sharks met this season they ended up in a shootout. Tonight was no different, with the Ducks prevailing for the second time in a row for a 2-1 win. Going into the game, the Ducks had their first three game winning streak of the season that began with the first shootout win against San Jose. The Sharks also had a three game winning streak having defeated the Coyotes three times in a row. This was before the Coyotes had obtained former Ducks goalie Ilya Bryzgalov off of waivers, who shut out the Kings 1-0 earlier today in his debut with Phoenix.

Once again, the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks were locked in a tightly played game that had almost the intensity of the playoffs.

Just like the last meeting eight days earlier, the defending Stanley Cup champion Ducks were better by the slimmest of margins.

Corey Perry scored the only goal in the shootout and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 28 saves to lead Anaheim to its second straight shootout win over the Sharks, 2-1 on Saturday night.

''It was a great battle tonight,'' Sharks coach Ron Wilson said. ''It's two really good teams fighting for every inch of space on the ice. These two games have easily been the most intense games so far this year.''

Anaheim Duck Fan game report

The Ducks were in San Jose to face the Sharks in the second game for the two clubs in 8 days. The Ducks won the first game 3-2 in the shootout, and they won this game 2-1 in the shootout. The Ducks have a 4 game winning streak, however 3 of those 4 wins are in the shootout.
The game was just like I would have expected, hard hitting and quick. The Ducks hit everything in sight, and the Sharks were just as tough.

LA Times Game Report

The big picture in the Pacific Division is still fuzzy with three-fourths of the season yet to be played, but it's becoming clear the Ducks and San Jose Sharks are starting to emerge as the ones to beat.
The streaking teams played to a shootout for the second time in eight days, with goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere again playing a key role in the Ducks' 2-1 victory Saturday night at HP Pavilion.

Giguere stopped 28 shots and foiled all three Sharks attempts in the shootout. Giguere hasn't been scored upon in the last 10 shootout tries he has faced, including two in a 3-2 win over San Jose last week.

OC Register Game Report

Three points separated the NHL Pacific Division rival Ducks and San Jose Sharks in last season's final standings. The margin might prove to be even closer this season.

Corey Perry's lone shootout conversion and near-perfect goaltending by Jean-Sebastien Giguere lifted the Ducks to a 2-1 triumph over San Jose on Saturday night at HP Pavilion, marking a second Ducks shootout triumph over the Sharks in just more than a week.
