Sharks Vs. Ducks: Anaheim Shuts Out San Jose 1-0

The San Jose Sharks struggled in Anaheim Friday night as Ducks' goaltender Jonas Hiller recorded his 12th career shutout, and the Ducks prevailed 1-0. Hiller bounced back from a strange case of vertigo last season that affected his depth perception and robbed him of the 2nd half of the season, but was back in good form as he made 31 saves and Maxime Macenauer scored his first NHL goal in the Ducks' home opener. Anaheim goes to 2-1-0 and San Jose fell to 1-1-0. 

The Ducks killed four San Jose penalties, including the Sharks best chance late in the third period with a 6-on-5 skating advantage in the final minute after they pulled goaltender Thomas Greiss

Greiss, subbing for injured Sharks goaltenders Antti Niemi and Antero Niittymaki, did his part Friday night, only making one mistake 14 minutes in to Macenauer, a 22-year old fourth-line center for the Ducks, playing in just his third NHL game. 

The Sharks host the St. Louis Blues Saturday. The Blues (1-2-0), lost to the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday.
