What the Ducks want out of 2014 they produced Tuesday night.

In a high-energy blitz of talent and toughness that answered a road loss to the San Jose Sharks two days earlier, the Ducks scored five goals in an 11-minute 25-second stretch to win, 6-3, at Honda Center.

"Huge for us, because it shows when we play our game, we win," said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano, who capped the scoring with a short-handed goal early in the third period.

Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf already had two assists when he outraced the Sharks on an earlier third-period breakaway, closing it with a muscled shot that beat San Jose goalie Antti Niemi and forced his removal from the game.
