Frederick Anderson makes 17 saves in 3rd career shutout as Ducks blank Canucks 4-0

Frederick Andersen had to make only 17 saves for the third shutout of his career as the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 Tuesday night.

Matt Beleskey, Kyle Palmieri, Rickard Rackell and Patrick Maroon scored for Anaheim (32-10-6), which sits atop the NHL's overall standings and has won six straight and eight of its last nine.

Ryan Miller stopped 20 shots for Vancouver.

With his team up 2-0 after 40 minutes, Rackell put things out of reach at 9:20 of the third period, firing a shot from just inside the Vancouver blue line that deflected off the stick of Canucks defenseman Frank Corrado and in off the crossbar for his fourth of the season.
