Ducks Vs. Sharks: Anaheim Falls 3-1 At Home, Loses Third Straight Game

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Antti Niemi made 16 of his 26 saves in the third period, backstopping the San Jose Sharks to a 3-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center. Brad Winchester and Benn Ferriero scored 27 seconds apart in the second period for the Sharks, who have earned at least a point in nine of their last 10 games (6-1-3).

San Jose snapped a four-game losing streak against the Ducks.

Jonas Hiller stopped 33-of-36 shots for Anaheim, which has dropped the first three of a six-game homestand and seven of eight overall. Despite a 12-3 edge in shots in the first period, the Sharks trailed 1-0 on a goal by Corey Perry.

Winchester fired home a wrister from the top of the left circle to pull San Jose even at the 16:23 mark of the middle stanza. A diving Ferriero scored from in tight to put the visitors on top.

Joe Pavelski provided some insurance in the third period. Patrick Marleau created a turnover in the neutral zone and Hiller turned away a high shot by Joe Thornton, but Pavelski buried the rebound at 12:43.

Game Notes

Both teams went 0-for-4 on the power play...Anaheim forward Jason Blake returned to the lineup after missing 34 games with tendon damage above his left wrist...Perry has 399 career points.

Ducks Vs. Sharks: Jason Blake Could Return For Anaheim Wednesday Night

The Anaheim Ducks look to snap a two-game losing streak on Wednesday night as they host the San Jose Sharks at Honda Center in Anaheim. The Ducks hope to have Jason Blake back after missing 34 games with a severe wrist injury. Blake was inadvertently stepped on October 14 against the Sharks, which caused a deep cut in his arm. But Blake has been practicing with the Ducks and declared himself able to lace up the skates.

"It’s the coach’s decision. I think I’m ready to go," Blake told Adam Brady of Ducks Blog. "It feels pretty good. You’re not going to know how you feel until you get into a game. I hopefully will play tomorrow night. I’m definitely looking forward to it."

Strangely enough, despite the Ducks having the second-worst record in the NHL, they have beaten San Jose in all three of their meetings so far this season. The Ducks prevailed 1-0 in at Honda Center on October 14, and Anaheim picked up a pair of 3-2 wins on October 17 and December 26 in San Jose.

The Ducks have lost two straight and have lost six of their last seven games, and are 3-8-2 under new head coach Bruce Boudreau. Anaheim is 6-20-6 in their last 32 games.

Wednesday night's 7 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more news and information on Ducks hockey, be sure to read Anaheim Calling.
