Sharks snap Ducks' 10-game winning streak

San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Antti Niemi stopped 30 shots and the San Jose Sharks beat the Ducks, 3-1, to snap Anaheim's franchise-record 10-game winning streak.

Brent Burns, Logan Couture and Bracken Kearns lit the lamp for the Sharks, who won their fourth in a row. The 32-year-old Kearns registered his first NHL goal.

This was the start of a home-and-home series with the Ducks set to host Tuesday's contest. Anaheim has yet to lose in regulation at home this season (14-0-2), something the Sharks have done just once (14-1-3) this campaign at SAP Center.

Patrick Maroon scored in the third period for the Ducks, who lost for the first time since Dec. 3 in a shootout against the Los Angeles Kings. The Ducks had their 13-game point streak (11-0-2) broken. That was three shy of the club record (12-0-4), set Oct. 6 - Nov. 9, 2006.

Frederik Andersen made 20 stops for the Ducks, who had won their previous six road games.
