Corey Perry, Teemu Selanne and James Wisniewski scored goals, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere looked solid again in a 23-save effort as the Ducks beat the Sharks, 3-2.
Wisniewski scored a short-handed goal just over four minutes later, putting another one-timer past Nabokov. But Perry had the prettiest goal of the three, single-handedly spinning Nicholas Petrecki around in his tracks behind the net, then flipping the puck up at the last second to beat Nabokov. That goal tied the game at 1 with 2:45 left in the second period.
The Ducks were 2 seconds away from going into the locker room when Benn Ferreiro received a pinpoint backhand from Joe Thornton and beat Giguere for a power-play goal to make it 1-0 late in the first period.
