SAN JOSE, Calif. - Corey Perry scored the only goal in the shootout and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 31 saves to lead the Anaheim Ducks to their fourth straight win, 2-1 over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.
Chris Kunitz opened the scoring for Anaheim at 15:24 of the first period. Torrey Mitchell
tied it for the Sharks at 7:03 of the third period.
Perry shot second for the Ducks in the tiebreaker, skating out wide to his right before swooping in front of the crease and lifting a backhand shot over a sprawling Evgeni Nabokov.
Giguere then stopped Joe Pavelski at the other end to clinch the win. Giguere had earlier stopped Devin Setoguchi and Patrick Marleau in the shootout to extend the defending Stanley Cup champions' longest winning streak of the season. The current run started with a shootout win over the Sharks on Nov. 9.
San Jose had won four straight since that loss in Anaheim in the first meeting of the season between the Pacific Division rivals.
