Wirtanen leads Ducks past Canucks in overtime

Sep 18, 2007 - 4:57 AM VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Petteri Wirtanen spoiled the Vancouver Canucks' preseason opener.

Wirtanen tallied two goals - including the overtime game-winner - as the Anaheim Ducks posted a 3-2 victory over the Canucks on Monday.

Wirtanen scored the game-winning goal in overtime on the power play, putting the puck past Canucks goaltender Drew MacIntyre, who was spelled in the second period by Curtis Sanford.

The Ducks took a 2-0 advantage in the second period on Wirtanen's first goal of the night, which was assisted by Brad May and George Parros. May and Parros each finished the game with two points.

Wirtanen also picked up an assist on Parros' first period tally.

Vancouver tied the score at 2-2 when Daniel Sedin took a pass from his brother Henrik and scored on Anaheim goalie Ilja Bryzgalov, who stopped 27 of the 29 shots he faced.
