San Jose Sharks hang on, beat Ducks 5-3 to send Anaheim to its 3rd home loss in 4 days

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Brent Burns and Martin Havlat each had a goal and an assist, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Ducks 5-3 Monday night to send Anaheim to its third home loss in four days.

Havlat snapped a 15-game goal drought, Joe Pavelski scored just his second goal in 19 games and added a late assist, and James Sheppard wrapped it up with his first goal of the season with 9:56 to play in San Jose's final stop on a five-game trip.

Emerson Etem scored his second career goal and Francois Beauchemin also scored for the Ducks, who wrapped up a string of five home games in eight days with their first three-game skid of the season.

Corey Perry scored for Anaheim with 1:40 to play, but Dan Boyle scored on an empty net with 28 seconds left.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
