Late goal from Milan Michalek lifts Sharks to 3-2 win over Ducks

Ryane Clowe assisted on all three San Jose goals and Joe Thornton had two assists. Teemu Selanne and Shawn Thornton scored for the Ducks. The victory gave the second-place Sharks a split of their two-night, home-and-home series against Pacific Division-leading Anaheim. The Ducks beat them 7-4 the previous night in San Jose.

With Anaheim's Joe DiPenta off for hooking and three seconds remaining on the power play, Michalek - all alone in the slot - took a pass from Marc-Edouard Vlasic and beat Ilya Bryzgalov with a 40-foot slapshot that trickled between the goalie's pads.

Vesa Toskala made 20 saves for the Sharks, who outshot Anaheim 13-4 in the third period. Bryzgalov stopped 26 shots for Anaheim.
