Final Score: Anaheim 3, Winnipeg 2
Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Corey Perry potted the game-winner with 5:31 remaining in the third, making Teemu Selanne's final trip to Winnipeg a triumphant one, as the Anaheim Ducks downed the Jets, 3-2, on Sunday at MTS Centre. Andrew Cogliano and Mathieu Perreault each scored once, while Viktor Fasth stopped 15-of-17 shots for the Ducks, who have won back-to-back games since opening the season with a 6-1 setback in Colorado. Set to retire at season's end, the 43-year-old Selanne made what will likely be his final trip to Winnipeg, where he started his NHL career 21 years ago. Selanne, who racked up 147 goals and 306 points in 231 games with the Jets, was honored with a video tribute during the game, prompting a standing ovation from the Winnipeg faithful. Andrew Ladd registered both Winnipeg markers, while Ondrej Pavelec allowed all three goals on 33 shots for the Jets, who were looking for their first 3-0 start in franchise history.
Final Score: Vancouver 5, Calgary 4 (OT)
Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Santorelli scored his second goal of the game 3:17 into overtime Sunday and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Calgary Flames 5-4. The Canucks overcame a 3-1 deficit with three consecutive goals in the third period to take the lead, only to see David Jones tie the game for Calgary with 19 seconds left in regulation.
