The battle of the Pacific. Over 100 days ago was the last time the Sharks saw a lead in the division. Finally they were granted a chance to reclaim it with less than a month of hockey to play. Sharks fans, management and players know all too well what home ice can mean in the playoffs. With the Ducks in town on Thursday night, sights were locked on taking a two point advantage.



First Period



Man the Sharks haven't scored on the power play in forever!



Both teams entered the night with notable special teams struggles.



Second Period



Shhh... you'll jinx it!



Aw, man! See!



Third Period




Perry found a bit of puck luck with a bouncing puck but deserved credit for delivering a shot in traffic that eventually gets credited as a goal from Selanne for the tip.



Sharks 2-on-1.





Apparently, that booty bump was inspiring stuff.
