The Ducks put in a solid effort tonight only to come up short. Joe Thornton's goal in the third period gave the Sharks a permanent lead. Goals came from the blueline from James Wisniewski and Ryan Whitney. Corey Perry kept his point streak alive with an assist on Whitney's goal. Also, Saku Koivu recorded an assist in his return to the lineup. Despite the loss, the Ducks seemed to play with more urgency and a little more consistency. Hopefully that will carry over to the next game.
