Event Name: San Jose Sharks vs Anaheim Ducks
Date: October 3, 2018
Location: SAP Center: 525 W Santa Clara St, San Jose, CA 95113
Hosted by: San Jose Sharks Hockey
Sharks did not get the start they wanted. On a bad shift change after the very first shift, they gave up a breakaway to Max Comtois and he fired one home through the five-hole, giving the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Just seven minutes later, Evander Kane got one back for the Sharks as he stick handled through couple of defenders and rested one home to tie the game at one.
San Jose dominated for most of the second period. However, the score came later in the period on a short handed opportunity when Tomas Hertl stick-handled his way to the bottom of right circle and roofed it.
Sharks lead only lasted forty seconds. Rickard Rakell received a crisscross pass on the same power play and beat Martin Jones to his right. Once again the game was tied at two.
Eight minutes into the third period, a threatening backhand shot by Brandon Montour found its way into the Sharks net going over Jones’s right shoulder. Two minutes later, on a Ducks power play, a tic-tac-toe pass landed on Adam Henrique’s stick right in front of Jones and into the Sharks net.
Final score 5-2 Ducks
Tonight the Sharks led in shots on goal (33-15), face-offs (52%-48%), takeaways (10-9) and giveaways (8-6) while the Ducks led in hits
(25-21) and blocked shots (16-13).
