ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Hampus Lindholm got his first goal of the season with 5:38 remaining, helping the Anaheim Ducks beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Friday night after blowing a two-goal lead.
Goals by Brent Burns and Kevin Labanc brought San Jose back after Rickard Rakell and Antoine Vermette scored in the first period for Anaheim.
The 22-year-old Lindholm held out this season before signing a six-year contract extension in late October. He didn’t play his first game until Nov. 9 and got his first goal in 15 contests.
Jonathan Bernier had 22 saves for the Ducks and withstood a frantic final attack after San Jose pulled its goalie with 2 minutes left.
Martin Jones stopped 29 shots for the Sharks.
