ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Vancouver scored twice in the first period and added three more goals while stifling a scorching Anaheim offense to take a 5-0 win over the Ducks on Friday at the Honda Center. Anaheim entered the contest, its first home date of the strike-delayed season, with 12 goals scored and a 2-0 start. Against the Canucks, the Ducks managed 29 shots on goal but offered few legitimate scoring chances. Vancouver, though, capitalized on its opportunities, and quickly. Daniel Sedin put the Canucks up with a power-play goal past Anaheim goalie Jonah Hiller at 9:13 in the first period as Vancouver had a two-man advantage. With Anaheim's Daniel Winnik (holding) and Ryan Getzlaf (cross checking) in the penalty box, Alexander Edler moved the puck to Henrik Sedin who threaded a pass in heavy traffic to set up brother Daniel's second goal of the season. The Canucks capitalized on a second power play late in the first period to deflate the home crowd as Mason Raymond scored his second goal of the season -- and his first of two on the evening -- off a rebound at the 18:40 mark, after being assisted by Aledandre Burrows and Dan Hamhuis. Burrows had a penalty shot of his own denied by Hiller in the second period, but Vancouver added an Aaron Volpatti goal in the second period (16:37, unassisted) and two more scores in the third. The Canucks put the game away with a Zack Kassian goal just 1:18 into the third period, followed by Raymond's second of the evening and third of the year with just over five minutes left in the game. Vancouver goalie Cory Schneider, who stopped 29 shots to record his fifth career shutout, was aided by a 7-1 advantage in power plays. The Ducks finished with 31 penalty minutes -- the Canucks had just 16 for the game -- and spent a large portion of the first and second periods a man down. NOTES: The Ducks won the first matchup of the season between the two teams, 7-3, on Jan. 19. ... Anaheim scored 12 goals in its first two games; the Ducks had never scored more than seven combined goals in their first two games to start a season. ... Vancouver's Ryan Kesler (shoulder) and David Booth (groin) remain sidelined. ... Henrik Sedin played in his 585th consecutive game on Friday and ranks seventh in NHL history in consecutive-games-played streak. ... The game marked the first of 10 sets of back-to-back matchups for Anaheim, with the Ducks hosting Nashville on Saturday. ... Vancouver started off the season with three consecutive home games, but is now in the midst of a three-game road trip, with games remaining at San Jose on Sunday and the Los Angeles Kings on Monday. ... Anaheim reassigned D Sami Vatanen to Norfolk (AHL).
