VIDEO: Vancouver Canucks hammered by (Mighty) Ducks, 9-1 in Anaheim
Look away... we're hideous.
Corey Perry and the Anaheim Ducks had their fun with the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday night, running wild to a 9-1 win and six powerplay goals. Perry had two goals and two assists for the Ducks, backed up by Nick Bonino's two goals and Ryan Getzlaf's two-point effort, as well.
For Perry, that makes 27 tallies on the season. Zack Kassian had Vancouver's only goal of the game, which made it 6-1 with two seconds to go in the second period.
"I've had a lot of disappointing losses," Canucks captain Henrik Sedin said post-game. "This is up there. But again, it was not a 9-1 game. It's wasn't a 6-1 game. They had eight minutes of 5-on-3. They're going to score when they get that. That's what happened."
Shots were 44-32 for Anaheim, and Canucks rookie goalie Joacim Eriksson made his NHL debut in relief of Eddie Lack, who was pulled after the Ducks made it 3-0 in the second.
Eriksson made 25 saves on 31 shots against.
Anaheim had 11 powerplays on Wednesday night. Vancouver had three.
"It does me no good. It does the players no good to discuss anything that happened here," Canucks coach John Tortorella said after the beating. "The biggest thing for us is we need to get out of here and get ready for our next game."
Vancouver takes on the Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow night (Thursday, Jan. 16) in Arizona.
With the win, Anaheim remains undefeated at home in regulation this season, with a record of 20-0-2.
