Recap: San Jose vs. Anaheim

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Tommy Wingels finished with four points to lead the San Jose Sharks in a thrilling 6-4 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday.

Wingels had a goal and three assists and Logan Couture scored twice for the Sharks, who halted a four-game skid

"Hopefully, we can use tonight to turn the season around," Wingels said. "We were able to find ways to score."

Joe Pavelski, Tomas Hertl and Matt Nieto also lit the lamp and Antti Niemi stopped 30-of-34 shots in the win.

Corey Perry posted two goals and an assist, Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and two assists and Matt Beleskey also scored for the Ducks, who have dropped their last two games on the heels of a three-game win streak.

"We tried to do things right, but we had some bad breaks," Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau said. "Then we got mad and showed how we can play."

Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 19 shots and Jason LaBarbera turned aside 15 pucks in defeat.

The Sharks struck first as Couture's wrist shot off a broken play made it a 1-0 game midway through the first period.

Anaheim responded just under two minutes later as Beleskey tipped in Hampus Lindholm's point blast for a tied game. Couture, however, finished off a short-handed breakaway with a low shot through the pads of Andersen to give San Jose the lead back at 13:35.

After Jakob Silfverberg went off for high-sticking, Joe Thornton slipped a pass through the crease to Pavelski, who made it a 3-1 game with a quick shot at the side of the net with 14 seconds left in the opening stanza.

San Jose continued its frantic scoring with two more goals early in the second. Wingels got a stick on Patrick Marleau's shot from the point 2:46 into the frame and Hertl's backhander gave the Sharks a four-goal cushion at 6:09.

Perry netted two straight goals to get the Ducks within striking distance. He tipped Getzlaf's shot from the left point into the net with 1:08 to play in the second and then deflected Getzlaf's backhander into the top of the net 29 seconds into the third for a 5-3 game.

Getzlaf took a turnover in the slot and whipped a backhander over the shoulder of Niemi to make it a one-goal game 4:20 into the third.

Nieto, however, sealed the win on a empty-net, power-play goal with 50 seconds remaining.
