Anaheim at Vancouver

    Luongo plays full game as Canucks bounce Ducks in shootout


    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Brendan Morrison scored the winning goal in the first extra round of a shootout to lift the Vancouver Canucks to their first win of the preseason, 4-3, over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.

    Henrik Sedin set up identical twin Daniel Sedin for a pair of power-play goals, and free-agent addition Jan Bulis scored his first goal for the Canucks, who lost their first three games using split squads on the road.

    But Vancouver dressed its top six forwards and five of its top six defensemen for the first home game, while new No.1 goaltender Roberto Luongo played his first full game after leaving halfway through the last two.

    Luongo, acquired in a five-player trade that sent Todd Bertuzzi to Florida this summer, made 23 saves in regulation and overtime, then stopped Bobby Ryan in the last round of the shootout.

    Ryan Shannon beat him on a long backhand early in the first period, Tim Brent added a power-play goal off a scramble early in the second and Ryan Getzlaf tied it midway through the third, knocking in his own rebound.

    But after Shannon beat him badly on a deke in the first round of the shootout, Luongo stopped Rob Niedermayer, Brendan Mikkelson and Ryan to preserve his first win for the Canucks.

    After using most of their best players in a 5-1 romp over the Canucks in Anaheim Friday, the Ducks (2-2-1) left star defensemen Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger and top forwards Teemu Selanne and Andy MacDonald at home for Sunday's game.

    Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 30 shots in regulation and overtime for Anaheim. He also stopped Markus Naslund and Daniel Sedin in the shootout, but was beaten by Henrik Sedin and Morrison, whose backhand deke trickled over the goal line.
