Emerson Etem scored the tiebreaking goal against his former team with 6:37 to play, and the Vancouver Canucks rallied from a third-period deficit for their second straight victory, 3-2 over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Dan Hamhuis scored the tying goal shortly after Nate Thompson put the Ducks ahead in the third period. Etem then batted home a rebound in the longtime Ducks forward's first game back at Honda Center since Anaheim traded the native of nearby Long Beach last summer.

Bo Horvat also scored and Jacob Markstrom stopped 34 shots for the Canucks, who snapped their nine-game winless skid Thursday in San Jose.

John Gibson made 25 saves and Josh Manson scored in the opening minute for the injury-depleted Ducks, who had won three straight.
