Kearns scores first NHL goal; Sharks break Ducks' 10-game winning streak with 3-1 victory

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Bracken Kearns scored his first NHL goal, Logan Couture netted his 100th, and the San Jose Sharks broke Anaheim's 10-game winning streak by beating the Ducks 3-1 on Sunday night.

Brent Burns added a goal for the Sharks, who won their fourth straight. Antti Niemi stopped 30 shots in his 21st win of the season.

Patrick Maroon scored for the Ducks, who lost for the first time in December and missed a chance for a club-record, seven-game winning streak on the road. Frederik Anderson made 20 saves but lost for the second time in 11 games this season.

Anaheim, which entered the game as the NHL's top team, also had a 13-game point streak stopped.

Burns opened the scoring 1:17 into the game.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
