ANAHEIM, California — Corey Perry deflected Ryan Getzlaf’s centering feed past Jason LaBarbera with 5:37 left, in the Anaheim Ducks’ 3-2 victory over Phoenix on Sunday. Jonas Hiller made 36 saves for Anaheim. Cam Fowler scored his first NHL goal, Toni Lydman also scored, Perry added an assist, and Bobby Ryan had three assists. The Ducks rebounded from a 5-4 shootout loss to Atlanta on Friday night in which they failed to protect a two-goal lead by surrendering a pair of power-play goals in the third period. They also had a two-goal edge against the Coyotes, but made things interesting by giving up goals to Scottie Upshall and Eric Belanger in the third.

Canucks 5, Hurricanes 1 At Vancouver, British Columbia, Mason Raymond scored twice and added an assist, and rookie backup Cory Schneider made 32 saves as Vancouver trounced Carolina. Mikael Samuelsson had a goal and two assists, and Andrew Alberts and Ryan Kesler also scored to help the Canucks bounce back after losing games in Anaheim and Los Angeles. Patrick O’Sullivan scored, and Cam Ward made 23 saves for the road weary Hurricanes, who opened the season in Finland 10 days earlier with two wins over Minnesota. Carolina has since lost in Ottawa and Vancouver, and has games in San Jose, Los Angeles and Phoenix before playing its first home game Oct. 27.
