Lupul Leads Ducks Over Blackhawks 5-3

CHICAGO (AP) - The Mighty Ducks got power-play goals from Teemu Selanne and Scott Niedermayer - their big free-agent acquisitions - and Joffrey Lupul added two more to lift Anaheim to a 5-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

Two of Anaheim's goals were short-handed: one by Lupul, and another by Rob Niedermayer, Scott's younger brother.

Chicago's Nikolai Khabibulin - the highest profile goalie on last summer's free agent market after helping the Tampa Bay Lightning win the Stanley Cup - allowed all five goals on 24 shots.

Anaheim got 36 saves from Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

Chicago rookie Rene Bourque scored in his first NHL game. Mark Bell and Curtis Brown also connected for the Blackhawks.

The Mighty Ducks converted two of nine power-play chances. The Blackhawks were 1-for-9.

Eight of the nine free agents signed by the Blackhawks since July 2004 were in the lineup on Wednesday. Only defenseman Jaroslav Spacek, out with sore ribs, didn't dress.

The Mighty Ducks had three newly signed free agents - Selanne, Scott Niedermayer and Jason Marshall - in their lineup.

Bell opened the scoring at 8:22 of the first period by jamming a loose puck past Giguere from a scrum in front of the net.

Selanne was credited with a 5-on-3 power-play goal at 11:33 that tied it 1-all.

Petr Sykora's shot from the point struck Selanne, then richocheted off Chicago defenseman Jassen Cullimore and slipped between Khabibulin's pads.

Lupul scored the first short-handed goal of his career with 2:30 left in the first to put Anaheim ahead 2-1.

After breaking away down left wing, Lupul cut in front and fired a low shot that squeezed between Khabibulin's pads and barely trickled over the goal line. Lupul's second goal, at 2:19 of the second, made it 3-1. He cut down left wing, backed in rookie defenseman Brent Seabrook, cut to the net and scored on another low shot.

Brown cut it to 3-2 at 8:40 when he took Kyle Calder centering pass and scored from the edge of the crease.

Scott Niedermayer's goalmouth power-play deflection of Fedorov's shot from right wing 59 seconds later made it 4-2.

Bourque trimmed it to 4-3 with by popping in a rebound for a power-play goal with 3:56 left in the second.

Rob Niedermayer converted a rebound for a short-handed goal at 1:40 of the third to make it 5-3.
