Ryan Kesler scored 58 seconds into overtime, and Rickard Rakell netted his first regular-season NHL goal, leading the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.

Cam Fowler got the tying goal with 4:16 left in regulation, and Frederik Andersen made 30 saves for the Ducks, who have won nine of 11 and own a league-best 51 points. They lead the Pacific Division by eight points over the Sharks.

Fourteen of Anaheim's last 16 victories have been decided by one goal. Two ended in overtime and three went to shootouts.

The Ducks began overtime with 53 seconds of power-play time. San Jose killed the penalty, but Kesler beat Antti Niemi with a wrist shot from the left circle 5 seconds later.
