VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Teemu Selanne had two goals and two assists Saturday to help make Cory Schneider's first NHL season-opening start a short one and the Anaheim Ducks thumped the Vancouver Canucks 7-3. Daniel Winnik added two goals for the Ducks while Sheldon Souray, Corey Perry and Kyle Palmieri also scored. Schneider was pulled from the Vancouver net after allowing goals to Perry and Palmieri just 11 seconds apart early in the second period that capped a trio of Anaheim goals about three minutes apart. Winnik started the scoring spree with his second goal of the game. Schneider, who signed a three-year, 12 million contract last summer, allowed five goals on 14 shots. Roberto Luongo, who was expected to be traded after he was replaced as Vancouver's starter in last spring's playoffs, stopped 10 of 12 shots in relief. Dan Hamhuis, Daniel Sedin and Alex Edler scored for Vancouver. Jonas Hiller made 26 saves for the Ducks. Anaheim converted all three of its power-play chances, while Vancouver was 2 for 4. The one-sided loss spoiled a festive pregame atmosphere as the NHL returned to Vancouver following the lockout. The work stoppage had no effect on Vancouver's attendance as the Canucks drew their 409th consecutive sellout, which let out a loud roar once the national anthems were performed. Some fans sported signs welcoming players back after their long layoff. All fans received free scarves, and the Canucks gave away game-worn jerseys. Adults were offered one free beer per person. The team also held a draw for a team roadtrip giveaway on the Canucks' chartered airplane with players and offered a 50 percent discount on all team merchandise. Before the game, Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis thanked fans for their patience, support and loyalty, but did not apologize for the 119-day lockout. Canucks captain Henrik Sedin made similar comments and vowed: "We'll do our best to make this a season to remember." Winnik opened the scoring at 6:31 of the first as he deflected Saku Koivu's shot past Schneider. Hamhuis tied the score 1-1 at 9:53 off a pass from Jannik Hansen, who got credit for another assist on Daniel Sedin's power-play goal at 11:23. The 42-year-old Selanne, who started his 20th season, was off for holding at the time but made up for his miscue with an assist on Souray's goal at 15:23 of the first. Winnik gave the Ducks a 3-2 lead at 3:33 of the second as he completed a three-way passing play with Koivu and Andrew Cogliano. Perry and Palmieri staked the Ducks to a 5-2 lead as they scored just 11 seconds apart. That was it for Schneider and Luongo held the off the Ducks until the final minute of the second period when Selanne scored on a shot from the side of the net. The veteran winger added his second goal only 22 seconds after Edler had scored to make it 6-3.
