Anaheim Ducks official Coverage

One streak was snapped and another rolled on, as the Ducks virtually stole one from the Sharks 4-3 in overtime on a Francois Beauchemin goal just 33 seconds into the extra session.

Something had to give when the Sharks took their 10-game road winning streak into Honda Center, a place Anaheim had won five in a row. It looked late in the game like the Sharks would continue that streak, which ranked second all-time in the NHL, when they led 3-2 with less than a minute left in regulation. But after sending goalie J.S. Giguere to the bench for an extra attacker, the Ducks got a great bounce to tie the game 3-3 with just 27.7 seconds left.

MVN Coverage

The weather could not have been nicer for the sixth meeting of these two California teams. Last week it was raining and cold. This week it was back to shorts and flip flops. The Sharks played last night against Toronto, coming back to defeat them 3-2 after trailing 2-0 going into the third period. If Toronto had held onto their lead, the Ducks would only be 2 points behind them in the Pacific Division. The Ducks have been resting since Wednesday’s shut out against the same Maple Leafs.

Robo-goalie, Evgeni Nabokov, finally earned a rest, in spite of having started every single game for the Sharks this season. Thomas Greiss got the nod, making his NHL debut against the Ducks. Jean-Sebastien Giguere was the goalie of choice for the Ducks. The points couldn’t matter more. Ducks win, they pull within 2 points of first place in the Pacific Division. Ducks lose, the Sharks pull 6 points away, and they still have three games in hand. Would the Ducks realize this and play like they meant it?

With the Ducks trailing by a goal, Doug Weight scored with 28 seconds left in regulation, then defenceman Francois Beauchemin scored 33 seconds into overtime Sunday night to rally Anaheim to a 4-3 victory over San Jose.
