SAN JOSE, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks appear determined to make it a race for the Pacific Division.

Never mind that the visitors played the night before while the hosts were idle. The Ducks came into a sold-out SAP Center and dictated play en route to a 2-1 victory over the Sharks.

Anaheim moved to within four points of San Jose after completing a 3-0-2 series domination. Backup goaltender Jonathan Bernier continued his stellar work with injured John Gibson on the sideline. He made 33 saves while his teammates provided just enough support.

The Sharks have lost two in a row in regulation for the first time since Jan. 11 and Jan. 14.

In addition, San Jose lost the services of top-line left wing Jannik Hansen just past the midway point of the final period. The trade deadline acquisition went straight to the locker room with 9:45 left after appearing to suffer a cut to the facial area.

San Jose pulled goalie Martin Jones with 2:28 left in regulation, but couldn't manage another shot despite employing the extra attacker.

Jakob Silfverberg's breakaway goal at 13:29 accounted for the only scoring in the middle period as the visitors took a 2-1 lead into the third.

The rivals battled back and forth in the second before Silfverberg blocked Paul Martin's attempted drive just inside the Anaheim blue line, and broke free behind the San Jose defense. Silfverberg scored his 20th goal with a wrist shot over the right glove of Jones.

The Ducks and Sharks traded goals in the first period, which was played more in the San Jose end as Anaheim's 11-8 edge in shots would attest.

It took just 39 seconds for Anaheim trade-deadline acquisition Patrick Eaves to whip his 24th goal of the season over the left glove of Jones. It came after a feed from the opposite boards from Ryan Getzlaf glanced off the stick of Joe Pavelski in the slot.

Ryan Kesler drew iron on a breakaway at 6:30 and Silfverberg came close with a pair of in-close chances after the Ducks killed his hooking penalty of Brent Burns.

The Sharks cashed in on a 5-on-3 power play late in the period when Logan Couture wristed his 25th goal past Bernier. Joe Thornton had the set-up from behind the net 41 seconds after Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler gave the hosts a two-man advantage.
