Vancouver Too Much for Anaheim on Wednesday Night

Steve McCarthy scored the go-ahead goal on a power-play with 9:22 remaining, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Mighty Ducks 2-1 in pre-season play Wednesday night.

McCarthy took advantage of one of the NHL's new rules after a delay-of-game penalty against Anaheim defenceman Aaron Rome. Just 11 seconds after the Ducks finished killing off a hooking penalty against Zenon Konopka, Rome cleared the puck into the stands from his own zone and was whistled for the infraction.

McCarthy connected on a 45-foot slap shot from the slot, snapping a 1-1 tie. Ryan Kesler scored on another power play with 5:15 to play while Jason Marshall was off for hooking.

The Canucks (1-2-2), who were 3-for-11 on the power play, opened the scoring the first time they had the man-advantage. Markus Naslund went for the far corner and beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere low to the stick side with a 20-foor wrist shot from the right circle eight seconds after Konopka was sent off for holding early in the first period.

The Ducks (2-3-1), who weathered a two-man advantage Vancouver had for almost 1 1/2 minutes, tied it during a power play with just over 3 1/2 minutes remaining in the opening period after Vancouver defenceman Ed Jovanovski put a jarring check on Corey Perry behind the net and was sent off for boarding. Teemu Selanne beat Brent Johnson from short range, one-timing Ryan Getzlaf's pass from behind the goal line.

Both goalies played throughout, with Johnson making 26 saves and Giguere 20.

Anaheim again played without Petr Sykora, who has appeared in only one of the first six pre-season games because of stiffness in his lower back.

Only 13 players remain on the Ducks' roster from the 29 who played for them during the 2003-04 season, which preceded a yearlong lockout. The Canucks' roster still has 17 of the 27 players who saw action for them in the last season.
