Ducks beat Sharks for 12th straight home win
The equivalent of hockey bliss for Ducks fans came roughly midway through the second period.
Shortly after Anaheim announced on its scoreboard an eight-year contract extension for Corey Perry, there was one beautiful scoring rush after another. Peter Holland finished a tic-tac-toe play. Rookie Emerson Etem scored his first National Hockey League goal, and captain Ryan Getzlaf scored a shorthanded goal.
Only two late goals by the San Jose Sharks marred Monday night for Anaheim, whose 5-3 win marked a franchise-record 12th straight home victory -- and set set up a marquee matchup Wednesday with the Chicago Blackhawks (24-2-3).
