ANAHEIM, Calif. - Rookie Bobby Ryan scored two goals, Jonas Hiller made 31 saves for his second playoff shutout as the Anaheim Ducks rocked the top-seeded San Jose Sharks again, winning 4-0 on Thursday night to take a 3-1 lead in the first-round series.

Corey Perry had a late goal and an assist, and Ryan Getzlaf added two assists for the Ducks, who emphatically moved within one game of becoming the eighth No. 8 seed to win an NHL playoff series since 1994.

Ryan, the Ducks' 22-year-old Calder Trophy finalist, scored twice in a 3:40 span of the second period, giving him four goals in the four-game series. Anaheim then clamped down on Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and the Sharks' top scorers, making Hiller's job relatively easy.
