VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Teemu Selanne had two goals and two assists Saturday to help make Cory Schneider's first NHL season-opening start a short one and the Anaheim Ducks thumped the Vancouver Canucks 7-3.

Daniel Winnik added two goals for the Ducks while Sheldon Souray, Corey Perry and Kyle Palmieri also scored.

Schneider was pulled from the Vancouver net after allowing goals to Perry and Palmieri just 11 seconds apart early in the second period that capped a trio of Anaheim goals about three minutes apart.

Winnik started the scoring spree with his second goal of the game.

Schneider, who signed a three-year, $12 million contract last summer, allowed five goals on 14 shots.

Roberto Luongo, who was expected to be traded after he was replaced as Vancouver's starter in last spring's playoffs, stopped 10 of 12 shots in relief.

Dan Hamhuis, Daniel Sedin and Alex Edler scored for Vancouver.

Jonus Hiller made 26 saves to get the win for the Ducks.
