ANAHEIM, CALIF. (AP) - Saku Koivu scored the tying goal early in the third period, defenseman Sheldon Souray netted the winner with 6:39 left, and rookie Viktor Fasth made 25 saves as the Anaheim Ducks handed the San Jose Sharks their first regulation loss of the season, 2-1 on Monday night.

The Sharks, who won their first seven games before a 2-1 shootout loss to Nashville on Saturday, lead the Pacific Division by two points over the Ducks. Fasth is the first Anaheim goalie to win his first three NHL starts.

San Jose’s Thomas Greiss, returning to the site of his NHL debut back in January 2008, stopped Anaheim’s first 24 shots and allowed only a second-period goal to Logan Couture.
