ANAHEIM, Calif. – Cory Schneider made 30 saves in his fifth career shutout, Mason Raymond scored twice, and the Vancouver Canucks avenged last week's blowout loss to Anaheim with three power-play goals in a 5-0 win over the Ducks on Friday night.
Daniel Sedin and Raymond scored on power plays in the first period, and Zack Kassian added a man-advantage goal in the third period as the Canucks quieted Anaheim's standing-room-only crowd at the final home opener of the NHL's lockout-shortened season.
Schneider bounced back splendidly from his season-opening pratfall as the Canucks' new starting goalie last Saturday in Vancouver, where the Ducks chased him with five goals in 27 minutes.
Jonas Hiller stopped 29 shots, but Anaheim couldn't get off to a 3-0-0 start for the second time in franchise history.
