The Sharks hoped to sweep the two games to move into first place in the Pacific Division, but now need a win Wednesday night in Anaheim just to remain within three points of the Ducks.

There was a lot more distance between the teams in the first two periods as the Ducks scored two goals within 32 seconds in the opening period and used the four-goal barrage in the second to take a 6-1 lead.

Rob Niedermayer had a goal and two assists and Chris Pronger also assisted on two goals for the Ducks, who had their full roster healthy for the first time since December.
