Corey Perry led the Ontario Hockey League in scoring last season and shows no sign of letting up for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.

Perry scored twice, including a highlight reel effort Saturday, as the Anaheim Mighty Ducks defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 to post their second NHL exhibition victory in as many nights.

Perry, who had 47 goals in and 130 points for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League last season, gave the Mighty Ducks a 2-0 lead in the second period.

In the third, he deked Canuck prospect Prestin Ryan, then spun a 360-degree turn before beating Vancouver goalie Brent Johnson for his third goal of the pre-season.

Scott Niedermayer and Ruslan Salei also scored for the Ducks who outshot the Canucks in their own building 37-22.

Ed Jovanovski and Markus Naslund scored power-play goals past Anaheim goalie Ilya Bryzgalov in the third period.

The Canucks (0-1-0-2) are winless in exhibition play, losing their first two games in shootouts. The Ducks (2-1-0-1) also have a shootout loss.

Scott Niedermayer, who was on the Canucks' free-agent radar in the off-season but opted to join brother Rob in Anaheim, opened the scoring early in a testy first period.

The former Norris Trophy winner who captured three Stanley Cups with the New Jersey Devils jumped into the play when Ryan Getzlaf intercepted a poor Vancouver clearing attempt.

Niedermayer was in the slot between the face-off circles when he rifled Getzlaf's pass behind Vancouver starting goaltender Dan Cloutier. Getzlaf finished with three assists.

The opening period saw Todd Fedoruk, a tough, checking winger for the Philadelphia Flyers acquired as a free agent, easily beat Canuck tough guy Wade Brookbank. That accelerated a parade to the penalty box that totalled 36 minutes to both clubs in the opening 20 minutes.

Getzlaf, a leader on Canada's last world junior championship team, was the catalyst again when he set up Perry for his second goal of the pre-season, a backhand drive on Cloutier's doorstep.

The scoring opportunity came after Canuck prospect Fedor Fedorov turned the puck over in the defensive zone.

Salei made it 3-0 when he converted a pass from Scott Niedermayer early in the third period when the Mighty Ducks enjoyed a two-man advantage.

His rising shot went over the glove of Johnson who relieved Cloutier at the start of the period because the Vancouver netminder was still suffering effects of the flu.

Notes: Cloutier made his first start at GM Place since the second game of the 2004 first-round playoff loss to the Calgary Flames ... his season ended the next game with an ankle injury ...  the Canucks sent six forwards to their AHL affiliate Manitoba Moose on Saturday _ Marc-Andre Bernier, Craig Darby, Adam Keefe, Rick Rypien, Brandon Nolan and Jesse Schultz ... the moves reduced Vancouver's roster to 34 ... the Ducks resume exhibition play Sunday in San Jose while the Canucks meet the Flames in Calgary on Monday.
