Canucks get revenge with shootout win over Ducks

AP, ANAHEIM, California

Nick Bonino assisted on the tying goal by Alexandre Burrows in the second period and got the only goal in the shootout in his return to Anaheim, as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Ducks 2-1 on Sunday.

It was the first meeting between the teams since the June 27 trade that brought Ryan Kesler to the Ducks and sent Bonino and defenseman Luca Sbisa to Vancouver. It was the Ducks’ second loss in three nights at home against a club they won all five meetings against last season.

Elsewhere in the NHL, Edmonton’s Benoit Pouliot scored the go-ahead goal against his former team midway through the second period and backup Viktor Fasth made 20 saves to lead the Oilers past the New York Rangers 3-1.

Pouliot got his second goal of the season off a neat pass from linemate Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 8 minutes, 29 seconds into the middle period to put the Oilers ahead 2-1.

In Detroit, Steven Stamkos scored twice and Ryan Callahan had the lone shootout goal to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning over the Red Wings 4-3 for their sixth straight victory.

Callahan deked right and got the puck past Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard to seal the victory.

Stamkos’ second goal, his 10th this season, ricocheted in off the right post early in the second period to give the Lightning their first lead and Tyler Johnson made it 3-1 a few minutes later.

In Ottawa, Peter Holland had a goal and an assist as the Toronto Maple Leafs erased a one-goal deficit three times to beat the Senators 5-3, while Chicago defensemen Trevor van Riemsdyk, Brent Seabrook and Niklas Hjalmarsson scored in the first to help the Blackhawks crush San Jose 5-2.
