Teemu Selanne had two goals and two assists to help make Cory Schneider's first game as the new no. 1 a short one as the Anaheim Ducks thumped the Vancouver Canucks 7-3.
Daniel Winnik added two goals of his own for the Ducks, while Sheldon Souray, Corey Perry and Kyle Palmieri also scored.
Schneider was pulled from the Vancouver net after giving up a pair of goals 11 seconds apart early in the second period to cap a trio of Anaheim goals in just over three minutes.
Winnik started the deluge with his second of the game at 3:33 to give the Ducks a 3-2 lead. Schneider allowed five goals on 14 shots and was replaced by Roberto Luongo, who was expected to be traded after he was displaced as Vancouver's starter in last spring's playoffs. The veteran goaltender stopped 10 of 12 shots in relief for Vancouver, which got goals from Dan Hamhuis, Daniel Sedin and Alex Edler. Jonas Hiller made 26 saves to get the win for the Ducks.
The Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers tonight, but head coach Alain Vigneault would not say after last night who he planned to start in goal.
