VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Brad Staubitz's second-period goal sent the Anaheim Ducks to a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. Staubitz's goal on a shot from right wing at 8:21 of the second proved to be the winner as it gave the Ducks a 2-0 lead that held up after 40 minutes before a Vancouver rally fell short in the third. The Ducks improved to 30-11-6 in their final road game of the regular season. The loss ended Vancouver's home win streak at nine games as their record dropped to 26-14-7. The Canucks finished with a 15-6-3 home mark. Matt Beleskey, also in the second period, and Andrew Cogliano, with a short-handed empty-netter in the final minute of the third, scored for the Ducks. Jason Garrison scored for the Canucks during a five-on-three power play late in the third period.

NWSB Picks: The weekly Vancouver Canucks three stars
