(Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks look to further distance themselves from the San Jose Sharks when the top two teams in the Pacific Division complete a home-and-home series this evening at the Honda Center.

Anaheim extended its advantage over the Sharks to five points in the Pacific standings with Tuesday's 7-4 triumph in San Jose. Travis Moen scored twice to lead the way, while Rob Niedermayer finished with a goal and two assists in the victory.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 34 shots for the Ducks, who also received goals from Samuel Pahlsson, Andy McDonald, Dustin Penner and Ryan Getzlaf on the night.

Tuesday's win also marked the return of All-Star defenseman Scott Niedermayer to the Anaheim lineup. The former Norris Trophy winner, who had missed the club's last three games with a foot injury, contributed an assist on Pahlsson's first-period goal.

Jonathan Cheechoo had a pair of goals and Mike Grier and Patrick Marleau also tallied for the Sharks, who have dropped two in a row and are 2-4-1 over their last seven games. Vesa Toskala allowed six goals on 30 shots in the losing effort.
