ANAHEIM, Calif.: Max Comtois and Troy Terry scored in the shootout, Ryan Miller made 26 saves and the Anaheim Ducks beat the San Jose Sharks 2-1 on Saturday night.
Terry and San Jose’s Ryan Donato each scored in the first round of the shootout, but Comtois had the decisive goal with a shot through Devan Dubnyk’s legs.
Anaheim is 1-1 in shootouts while San Jose fell to 3-1.
Logan Couture scored for San Jose 11 seconds into the game but was stopped in the shootout along with Kevin Labanc. Dubnyk made 32 saves.
Anaheim’s Isac Lundestrom scored his first NHL goal.
Couture’s goal quickly after the opening faceoff is the third-fastest in franchise history. The forward knocked in the loose puck after Mario Ferraro’s slap shot was partially stopped by Miller but trickled through his legs.
Along with being the league’s second-fastest goal this season, it is Couture’s fifth of the season and third in the last four games.
Lundestrom tied it at 1 nearly six minutes into the second period when he redirected Hampus Lindholm’s shot from the point.
Anaheim had a chance to win it late in overtime, but Rickard Rackell whiffed on a shot after getting a great centering feed from Lindholm in front of the net.

San Jose’s Patrick Marleau played in his 1,733rd game to tie Jaromir Jagr for third on the NHLs games played list.
