Having secured home ice advantage through the Stanley Cup Finals, this season's early playoff exit by the Sharks proves extra costly.

The San Jose Sharks had little trouble getting on track against the Anaheim Ducks this time.
 
With Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton each scoring first period goals, Dany Heatley adding two assists and Evgeni Nabokov making 24 saves the Sharks quickly spoiled the Ducks season opener with a dominating 4-1 victory on Saturday night.

Rookie Benn Ferriero and Devin Setoguchi also scored for the Sharks.

Ryan Whitney ended Nabokov's hopes for his 47th career shutout with a goal midway through the third period.

Skating after a 5-2 opening night loss at Colorado Thursday, San Jose responded with a strong effort against the Ducks, who eliminated the President Trophy winning Sharks in the opening round of the playoffs last spring.
