Trevor Zegras and Troy Terry scored shootout goals and the Ducks overcame Erik Karlsson’s first career hat trick to beat the San Jose Sharks 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Logan Couture scored for San Jose in the shootout but Anthony Stolarz stopped Karlsson and Kevin Labanc to earn his first win of the season.

Stolarz finished with 39 saves to improve to 6-1 against the Sharks in his career.


Adam Henrique scored twice for Anaheim. Ryan Strome, Frank Vatrano and Max Comtois also scored as the Ducks won their first road game of the season, improving to 1-5-1.

Karlsson had three goals and an assist for San Jose. Timo Meier added two goals.

Kahkonen stopped 39 shots.

Henrique opened the scoring 5:16 into the first period with his first goal of the season. Karlsson answered with two goals in 23 seconds, the seventh-fastest mark by a player in Sharks history.

Vatrano tied it later in the first and Henrique put Anaheim back ahead with 15 seconds left in the period. Meier responded with a power-play goal early in the second to tie the score at 3.

Strome gave the Ducks the lead later in the period, but Meier was credited with the tying goal just 21 seconds later when Anaheim’s Jakob Silfverberg accidentally shot the puck into his own net.


Comtois scored the go-ahead goal 11:31 into the third period, but Karlsson tied it with 2:12 left and the goalie pulled for an extra skater.
