Who needs Corey Perry and his new eight-year, $69 million deal?
The Ducks actually do but they did just fine without their star right wing Monday night as Francois Beauchemin's two goals and Emerson Etem's first career tally highlighted their 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks at Honda Center.

Perry wasn't on the ice as he was busy putting the finishing touches on his big-money contract extension while serving the third of his four-game suspension for his hit on Minnesota Wild rookie Jason Zucker.
His absence hasn't halted the hard-driving Ducks (21-3-4), who've gone 8-0-3 since their last regulation loss on Feb. 25 against the Kings at Staples Center. Their 12th consecutive home triumph set a franchise record.
"We always want this building to be a tough place to come into," Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "Our fans have shown it this year and we've shown it.
"That's what we want to do down the stretch here. Keep winning our home games and win as many as you can on the road."
Getzlaf's shorthanded score capped a three-goal outburst in less than three minutes of the second period to blow open a 1-1 tie. It was Etem who fed him the deft pass after breaking through on his own just 2:12 earlier.
Etem, a Long Beach native and Ducks' late first-round pick in 2010, broke in on San Jose goalie Antti Niemi and beat him top shelf after getting a feed from Daniel Winnik. The score drew a loud ovation from the announced 14,441 in attendance.
