There was a lot more distance between the teams in the first two periods as the Ducks scored two goals within 32 seconds in the opening period and used the four-goal barrage in the second to take a 6-1 lead. Rob Niedermayer had a goal and two assists and Chris Pronger also assisted on two goals for the Ducks, who had their full roster healthy for the first time since December. Photo gallery: Ducks vs Sharks SAN JOSE – Travis Moen’s second goal capped Anaheim’s four-goal second period, and the Ducks won the front half of a key home- and-home series with the San Jose Sharks, 7-4, on Tuesday night. The Sharks hoped to sweep the two games to move into first place in the Pacific Division, but now need a win tonight in Anaheim just to remain within three points of the Ducks. Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere had a groin injury in Anaheim’s last trip to the Shark Tank on Dec. 26, which helped San Jose close a 12-point gap in the division to three. The Ducks won just twice in the 11 games Giguere missed, but have won three of four since his return. He had 34 saves against the Sharks, allowing a pair of third-period goals to Jonathan Cheechoo that helped make the final margin respectable for San Jose. Mike Grier and Patrick Marleau also scored for the Sharks, who allowed the most goals they had all season at home. San Jose has won just once in its last five games. Samuel Pahlsson, Andy McDonald, Dustin Penner and Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Ducks. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
