Another won that got away: 3-2 loss

In the frantic struggle to get one of the three guaranteed Stanley Cup playoff berths from the NHL Pacific, the Anaheim Ducks are strictly one step forward, one step back these days.

They continued the pattern Sunday night at Honda Center when they lost 3-2 in overtime to the San Jose Sharks. The defeat got them one point, but they remain mired in a fourth place tie with the Los Angeles Kings at 27-19-11 (65 points).

It didn’t start out that way. The Ducks led 2-0 deep into the third period on goals by Ondrej Kase and Cam Fowler, but let the Sharks get back in the game with two late goals.

After a scoreless overtime, the Sharks prevailed in the shootout.

“I didn’t think we had energy for the 60 minutes,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “We stood around a little bit too much. We had the start we needed to have, but it seemed like we ran out of gas or we didn’t seem to get ahold of the pucks. We turned the puck over a few times in the third where we should’ve put the puck in. It led to momentum shifts for them.”

The Ducks will try to regain their momentum Monday when the face the Detroit Red Wings.
