Recap: San Jose vs. Anaheim

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Antti Niemi made 25 saves and six different Sharks scored as San Jose used a five-goal second period to ease past the Anaheim Ducks, 6-3, on Thursday.

Patrick Marleau, Barclay Goodrow and James Sheppard each tallied a goal and an assist and Brenden Dillon, Matt Irwin and Joe Pavelski also scored for the Sharks, who have won seven straight home games against the Ducks.

"Special teams got us going and it was good to see," Pavelski said.

Andrew Cogliano, Patrick Maroon and Matt Beleskey all lit the lamp for the Ducks, who had their six-game winning streak come to a screeching halt.

Ilya Bryzgalov gave up all six goals on 25 shots and Frederik Andersen turned aside all eight shots fired his way in relief.

"If I made a couple of saves on some of those goals, it might be different," said Bryzgalov.

The Sharks seized control with five goals during the middle stanza.

Goodrow started the drastic momentum shift 2:15 into the frame as he shot the puck through Bryzgalov's pads and Marleau made it a 3-1 game four minutes later after he deflected Brent Burns' point shot.

Irwin stepped up into the slot and wristed a shot past a screened Bryzgalov at 12:37, Sheppard found twine with a wrister off the rush two minutes later and Dillon made it a 6-1 game after his cross-ice feed on a short-handed two-on- one went in off a sliding Beleskey with 3:53 left in the second.

Anaheim got one back after Beleskey's fluttering backhander fooled Niemi just 1:23 into the third and Maroon accounted for the final score with 1:10 to play as he took Hampus Lindholm's cross-ice pass and ripped a wrister short side.

Cogliano gave the Ducks an early lead after he deposited a rebound in front just 4:57 into the game.

San Jose tied the game less than three minutes later as Pavelski redirected Joe Thornton's offering past Bryzgalov during a power play.
