Joel Ward asked Barclay Goodrow the question that was on a lot of Sharks fans minds Saturday night “when was the last time you played center?”

Goodrow suited up at center for the first time in his NHL career against the Anaheim Ducks 6 6 2 at the SAP Center Saturday, skating in the middle of the Sharks fourth line as he manned the position for the first time since his freshman year of high school.

The move paid off as Goodrow eventually set up the Sharks game tying goal in the third period of a 2 1 shootout win.

“I didn’t get a response https://www.sharkssjfans.com/brent-burns-jersey-c-9.html,” Ward said, chuckling as he recounted his conversation with Goodrow earlier in the day. “But he did great. He was strong, good on draws, he plays hard.

“He’s a good hockey player https://www.sharkssjfans.com/joel-ward-jersey-c-11.html, so it’s good to see him in the lineup .”

Goodrow, who was skating in just his second game of the season, picked up the primary assist on Ward’s game tying goal at 11 57 of the third. Instead of trying to make a highlight reel pass over to Ward, Goodrow put the puck on net, allowing his linemate to tap in the rebound for his second goal of the season.

The 24 year old forward, who produced an impressive 57.14 possession rating in the contest, admitted he was surprised to see his name penciled in at center.

“Obviously, I’ll do whatever it takes to get in the lineup,” Goodrow said. “We’re pretty interchangeable once we’re in our own zone. The wingers did a great job in helping me out and I thought we had a good game.”

Joonas Donskoi eventually clinched the win in the shootout, the Sharks first overtime game of the season https://www.sharkssjfans.com/justin-braun-jersey-c-10.html, flashing a series of deke moves that got Ducks goalie Ryan Miller’s skates and shoulders moving in opposite directions.

“It was a little too good to be true that he was heading kind of where I was thinking he was going to go,” Miller said, reflecting on Donskoi’s shootout goal. “He hit the brakes pretty hard and I thought I had waited long enough to move. He was definitely setting that one up.”

Joe Pavelski also scored for the Sharks in the shootout and Rickard Rackell recorded a goal for the Ducks.

Donskoi’s goal came in the sixth round of the shootout, putting two points in the Sharks bank on a night where they were playing without top defenseman Marc Edouard Vlasic, who’s sidelined with a head injury.

The Ducks opened the scoring at 6 23 of the first, taking advantage of a Sharks defensive miscue.

Corey Perry capitalized on a breakaway chance after defenseman Brenden Dillon got caught lunging in the neutral zone, attempting to breakup a stretch pass from Derek Grant.
Instead of blocking the pass at the red line, Dillon allowed Perry to catch the cross ice feed near the Sharks blue line and skate in all alone, squeaking the puck through goalie Martin Jones’ pads.

The miscue came in a game where Dillon was taking on more responsibility in lieu of Vlasic’s absence, playing out of position by filling his spot alongside Justin Braun on the Sharks second pairing.

“Just a missed assignment on that,” Dillon said. “You’ve got to know when guys like him Perry are on the ice. They’re cheating for offense and hanging out at the far blue.”

Dillon wasn’t the only Sharks defenseman who struggled with Vlasic on the sidelines. Dylan DeMelo, who was suiting up for the first time since Oct. 7, showed some rust while skating on the Sharks third pairing alongside Tim Heed. Braun committed a ghastly turnover in the second, too.

But the blue line played well enough without Vlasic to allow the Sharks to tilt the ice and outshoot 45 26 a Ducks squad that was playing without its top two centers in Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler, its top defenseman in Cam Fowler and top scoring winger Patrick Eaves.

The Sharks entered the game with a 14 17 3 record without Vlasic since the beginning of the 2014 15 season.

“They did a good job. It’s not easy taking Vlasic out. You see his importance Chris Tierney Jersey,” head coach Pete DeBoer said. “We bent but didn’t break.”

— Kevin Labanc got demoted to the Sharks fourth line in the second period. Joonas Donskoi took his place on the top line alongside Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski while Timo Meier moved up to the third line.
