Giguere, Ducks Stop Sharks 2-0

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 34 shots and Todd Fedoruk scored in the second period of the Anaheim Mighty Ducks' second shutout win in San Jose in 10 days, 2-0 over the Sharks on Saturday night.

Teemu Selanne scored his team-leading 26th goal into an empty net with 32 seconds to play for the Ducks, who got their fourth victory in five games with another defensive gem against their Pacific Divsion Rivals.

Three days after San Jose posted a 6-4 victory in Anaheim, Giguere led another whitewash at the Shark Tank. On Jan. 26, Ilya Bryzgalov was in net for the Ducks' 2-0 victory - San Jose's only other shutout loss all season.

Evgeni Nabokov made 22 saves for the Sharks, who are off to a terrible start in a five-game, pre-Olympics homestand that could be a key to their playoff hopes. After a shootout loss to Minnesota on Thursday night, the Sharks couldn't solve Giguere, who posted his second shutout of the season and the 21st of his career.

Giguere sat out the Ducks' previous four games while Bryzgalov enjoyed another strong stretch in his rookie season. But the 2003 NHL playoff MVP returned in outstanding form for the Ducks, making several big saves in the first period and remaining strong in the third during a 6-on-4 Sharks advantage.

After 32 dull, scoreless minutes, Fedoruk exploited the San Jose defense's sloppiness with a clever shot off Nabokov's back from behind the goal. Fedoruk corralled the rebound of his own tip attempt on Jason Marshall's slap shot and then banked it off Nabokov, who failed to cover the post properly.

Andy McDonald got the second assist on Fedoruk's goal, giving him seven assists in four games. He has scored in seven straight games overall.

After scoring three man-advantage goals in Anaheim three days ago, the Sharks' power play was dull again in the first period, wasting 83 seconds of 5-on-3 advantage. San Jose failed to score on another 5-on-3 in the third.

Notes: The Sharks are deep in negotiations with Nabokov on a contract extension, but general manager Doug Wilson said reports of an agreement are premature. ... Fedoruk's goal was his first since Jan. 7. ... Four-game scoring streaks ended for Joe Thornton and Jonathan Cheechoo.
