Ducks Defeat Sharks in OT, 5-4

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Sandis Ozolinsh scored the game-winner 58 seconds into overtime and Andy McDonald tallied twice in the contest to lead the Ducks over the San Jose Sharks 5-4 on Tuesday night at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim.

“We were fortunate tonight to win the hockey game and we’ll take it,” said Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.  “These are the kinds of games we haven’t been fortunate enough in. We haven’t gotten the extra point and tonight we were able to get it.”

In the extra period, Ozolinsh put a shot off the chest of Sharks goaltender Evegeni Nabokov and the rebound came right to the stick of Patrick Marleau.  Marleau lost the puck into his own net to give the Ducks the victory.

“I don’t know what happened,” said Ozolinsh.  “Maybe Sammy (Pahlsson) pushed his stick. It was a lucky break for us and we’ll take it. It was an important game for us. We competed pretty hard the whole game. It was a good win for us.”

The Ducks are now three points behind Edmonton in the Western Conference playoff chase.

Joffrey Lupul (22, Vishnevski, Marchant) started the scoring at 10:01 of the first period with his 22nd goal of the season.

The Sharks’ Joe Thornton (24, Ehroff, Cheechoo) drew San Jose even just 40 seconds into the second period and Jonathan Cheechoo (36, Preissing, J. Thornton) gave the Sharks a 2-1 lead on the power play at 7:16 of the second.

McDonald (21, S. Niedermayer, Getzlaf) got his first of two goals on the evening at 15:35 of the second with the Ducks on a two-man advantage.

Captain Scott Niedermayer picked up his 400th career NHL assist on the play.

Less than two minutes later, Teemu Selanne hit McDonald (22, Selanne) with a long pass through neutral ice.  The speedy center got by the San Jose defense and beat Nabokov for his 22nd goal of the season to give the Ducks a 3-2 lead.

After the second intermission, San Jose struck early in the third period with Christian Ehroff (3, Hannan, Stevenson) getting his third goal of the season 2:43 to make it 3-3.

Corey Perry (7, S. Niedermayer, Kunitz) broke the 3-3 deadlock at 12:51 of the third period for his seventh of the season to give the Ducks the one-goal lead.

Steve Bernier (2, McLaren) got his second of the season at 14:53 of the third period to help the Sharks send the game to overtime.

In the extra session, Ozolinsh was credited with his third goal of the season to give the Ducks the victory.

The Ducks now face the Phoenix Coyotes in a home-and-home on Saturday at Glendale Arena at 6 PM and Sunday at the Arrowhead Pond at 5 PM.
