Ducks 6, Canucks 0

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 20 saves for the Anaheim Ducks, who beat the Vancouver Canucks 6-0 Thursday night and remained unbeaten in regulation for an NHL-record 16th game.

Ryan Getzlaf netted two goals, and Shane O'Brien, Chris Kunitz, Samuel Pahlsson and Todd Marchant also scored as the Ducks improved to 12-0-4 - topping the league's previous best start of 15 games by the 1984 Edmonton Oilers (12-0-3).

The Ducks have benefited from the new standings and the elimination of ties. Anaheim has been beaten once in overtime and three times in shootouts.

Vancouver, hurt by injuries on defense, has lost four of five.

Already missing Sami Salo (knee sprain) and Willie Mitchell (post-concussion symptoms), the Canucks said Thursday they will be without Rory Fitzpatrick for four to six weeks with a broken left foot.
 
While the Ducks boast a defense anchored by Norris Trophy winners Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger, the Canucks countered with Nathan McIver and Patrick Coulombe - a pair of 21-year-old players making their NHL debuts - and 20-year-old Alexander Edler in his third game.

It didn't help when O'Brien's pass from the point bounced in off the back of the skate of Canucks forward Matt Cooke at the side of the net just 5:34 in.

Kunitz beat Roberto Luongo with a quick shot from a sharp angle to make it 2-0 about 10 minutes later, and Samuel Pahlsson ended the goalie's night with a goal 5:33 into the second.

Luongo, who had played 15 of the first 16 games, made just five saves before being pulled for the first time since joining the Canucks during the offseason. Dany Sabourin took over and stopped 11 of the final 14 shots.

Getzlaf beat him early in the third on a 2-on-1 feed from Scott Thornton, who had two assists, and again on a deflection to round out the scoring. In between the two goals, Marchant banged a loose puck over the goal line after Pronger's point shot trickled past Sabourin.

Giguere only needed to make a handful of good stops for his second shutout of the season. He had a couple of good saves during a flurry early in the second period, then got some help from his penalty killers as Vancouver failed to register a shot during a lengthy 5-on-3 advantage.

Vancouver has only eight goals in five games.

Notes

O'Brien also had two assists, matching his total through the first 15 games. ... Salo is practicing and could return as soon as Saturday against Calgary. Mitchell has resumed skating on his own, but continued to experience headaches this week. ... Marchant was taken to the locker room after being hit in the face by Mattias Ohlund's dump-in early in the first period. He later returned.
