Emerson Etem had his first NHL goal and an assist, defenseman Francois Beauchemin scored two goals, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Sharks 5-3 Monday night for their 12th consecutive home victory. Ryan Getzlaf had a short-handed goal and an assist, and Peter Holland and Etem scored 34 seconds apart in the second period to keep the Ducks unbeaten at Honda Center since their opener Jan. 25. Martin Havlat had an assist for the Sharks in his return from a seven-game absence with a lower-body injury. Anaheim got started when a horrible Sharks line change led to a 2-on-1 chance for Beauchemin, who patiently held the puck before firing a shot into the far top corner behind Niemi.
