SAN JOSE, Calif. - Jonathan Cheechoo scored two goals, Evgeni Nabokov took a shutout into the final minutes and Todd McLellan won his NHL head coaching debut in the San Jose Sharks' 4-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.

Christian Ehrhoff and Devin Setoguchi had goals, and Rob Blake added two assists while leading a strong defensive effort in his debut with the Sharks. McLellan's revamping of the defending Pacific Division champions got off to a strong start, with San Jose thoroughly outplaying its longtime rival for long stretches at the sold-out Shark Tank.

Rob Niedermayer scored with 5:25 left in the final period for Anaheim, ending the shutout bid for Nabokov, who made 28 saves. Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 37 saves for the Ducks, who are hoping for one more Stanley Cup run for much of the core from the 2007 NHL champions.
