NHL: San Jose Sharks beat Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in shootout
Chicago • Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored in a shootout, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Blackhawks 3-2 on Sunday night for their first victory in Chicago in three years.
Alex Stalock made 33 saves through overtime as San Jose bounced back from a 4-3 loss at Colorado on Saturday. Jason Demers scored in the first period and Brett Burns had a tying goal in the third.
Couture beat Corey Crawford into the right side of the net after Stalock stopped Chicago captain Jonathan Toews leading off the shootout. Patrick Sharp then shot wide before Pavelski scored to give the Sharks their first win at the United Center since a 5-3 victory on Dec. 30, 2010.
Ducks 4, Canucks 3 (OT) • In Anaheim, Calif., Corey Perry scored his league-leading eighth game-winning goal of the season with 0.6 seconds on the clock in overtime, giving the Ducks a come-from-behind victory.
The Ducks, off to a franchise-best 31-8-5 start and 17-0-2 at Honda Center, are the only team in the league without a regulation loss at home. Anaheim is also the third NHL team to open a season with a home point streak of 19 or more games.
