Boyles scores 2 power-play goals to lead Sharks to 6-5 win over Ducks in preseason finale

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Dan Boyle scored two power-play goals, Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau each had a goal and an assist, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Anaheim Ducks 6-5 Saturday night in the teams' preseason finale.

Marleau, Pavelski and Jason Demers scored in the first period and Tommy Wingels had three assists for the Sharks, who outshot the Ducks 39-18. Boyle's second goal proved to be the game-winner as Anaheim closed the scoring on Saku Koivu' s goal with 2:47 remaining.

Dustin Penner and Kyle Palmieri scored 14 seconds apart in the third period for the Ducks and Andrew Cogliano scored a highlight goal on a spin move while falling down in the first.

San Jose scored five times on its first 22 shots on Jonas Hiller, who finished with 33 saves. Antti Niemi made 13 saves for San Jose.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
