SAN JOSE, CALIF. (AP) - Andrew Ebbett broke a tie with his first career playoff goal from an awkward angle with 10:16 left, and the Anaheim Ducks stunned the top-seeded San Jose Sharks with another defensive gem in a 3-2 victory Sunday night, taking a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.

Jonas Hiller made 42 saves, while Bobby Ryan and Drew Miller also scored their first playoff goals as the eighth-seeded Ducks took two games in the Shark Tank from San Jose, which lost just five home games in regulation during the entire regular season.

Ryane Clowe’s goal early in the second period ended more than 174 minutes of scoreless playoff hockey for the Sharks dating to last season, but San Jose couldn’t rally despite another monstrous edge in shots.
