Ritchie's Hat Trick Powers Ducks Past Sharks in Futures Game Finale
/ Anaheim Ducks
After dropping the first game of the series by a 4-1 score last night at SAP Center, the Ducks exacted a little revenge of their own Sunday afternoon, defeating the Sharks, 5-2, at Sharks Ice. Nick Ritchie (first round, 10th overall in 2014) earned a hat trick in the win, completing the trifecta with an empty-net tally with 1:32 remaining in regulation. Brandon Montour (1-1=2) and Josh Manson (1-2=3) also scored for the Ducks, who coverted three times with the man advantage.
