Western Conference

San Jose Sharks (1) versus Anaheim Ducks (8)

  • The Sharks’ top line all scored one time, as San Jose managed to stay alive by defeating the Ducks in overtime last night.  Marleau, Thornton and Setoguchi wanted to be reunited and coach McLellan granted their wish.  After yesterday’s performance, there is no doubt as to who the number one unit is in San Jose.  Evgeni Nabokov was sharp yesterday.
  • Anaheim was not happy with the overtime goal scored by Patrick Marleau.  Even though they lost, the Ducks still remain confident heading home.
