Patrick Sharp scored for Chicago at 6:09 of the first period to cut the lead to 2-1, then both teams exchanged power play goals to provide the 3-2 margin at the end of the opening 20 minutes. Teemu Selanne scored the power play goal for the Ducks, and assisted on Cogliano's goal.

Anaheim outshot Chicago 12-9 in the opening period. The Ducks are 2-10-4 in their last 16 games.
