VIDEO: Ducks Take Down The Sharks
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks traveled to San Jose to take on the Sharks. The Ducks called up Buddy Robinson, Trevor Carrick, and Hunter Drew, who made his NHL debut. Anthony Stolarz was in net against Kaapo Kahkonen.
The Ducks got an early power play and Trevor Zegras scored. He took a shot that beat Kahkonen and he didn’t even realize it until a few seconds later. The puck got stuck in the top of the net and appeared hidden from a distance.
Anaheim appeared to make a 2-0 nothing game on a goal from Troy Terry, but the play was reviewed and reversed. The refs determined Terry had used a distinct kicking motion to knock the puck into the net. Instead the Ducks held a 1-0 lead after the first period.
The Sharks got a power play early in the second period, but the Ducks would kill it off and score afterward. The Ducks would go on an odd man rush. Kevin Shattenkirk and Max Comtois would do a give-and-go play with Comtois scoring at close range to make it 2-0. Sonny Milano would then score on a nice backhand shot less than a minute later.
San Jose got a power play late in the period and Brent Burns would convert. He took a point shot which deflected of Sustr’s stick and past Stolarz.
The Sharks would get one more goal right before the end of the period. Scott Reedy would deflect a shot past Stolarz to make it a 3-2 deficit.
A few minutes and the Ducks got an insurance goal from Josh Mahura. A couple of good passes by Comtois and Milano lead to Mahura being open in the slot. He took a shot beating Kahkonen high glove side.
The Sharks continued to apply pressure and pulled their goalie with a few minutes to go. Zach Aston-Reese scored an empty net goal to put the game out of reach for good. The Ducks won 5-2.
The Ducks signed Sam Carrick to a two-year extension.
The Ducks play their final game Friday in Dallas against the Stars.
