Two quick third period goals got the Anaheim Ducks a single point against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. But two points, a win, eluded them.

The Ducks trailed the Sharks 3-1 heading into the second period of a heated showdown for first in the Pacific Division, but got a pair of goals from some unlikely sources – Alex Grant for his first NHL goal in his first NHL games and Ben Lovejoy with his first of the season – to tie the game and eventually send it to overtime.

Grant and Lovejoy scored just over four minutes apart in the second half of the third period.

But the shootout didn’t fall their way, as the dropped a 4-3 decision in the breakaway competition to the Sharks.

“This is a tough road building. We’re happy we got the one point, but we would have liked two,” said Grant, according to the Ducks’ Twitter account.

“I told the guys if we get one, we can get two. I thought we’d win it in regulation,” said Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau.

The shootout loss drops the Ducks one point back of the Sharks for the Pacific Division lead.
