Ducks after two periods: Ducks 2, Canucks 2

October 13, 2010 |  8:55 pm

The Ducks pulled even at 2-2 in the second period thanks only to a five-on-three advantage

With Keith Ballard serving a penalty for holding Jason Blake behind the Vancouver net and Kevin Bieksa banished 20 seconds later for slashing Corey Perry’s stick, the Ducks overpassed the puck for a while before Teemu Selanne took a pass from Ryan Getzlaf and ripped a shot over Roberto Luongo’s shoulder from the left circle.

The goal, Selanne’s first this season, was scored at 15:09.

The Canucks outshot the Ducks, 11-5, in the period for a 27-18 edge in shots through two periods. Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller was sharp and his solid play was the only reason the Canucks weren’t ahead by five or six goals.
