Ducks Ground Jets
Winnipeg, Manitoba — Corey Perry took advantage of a defensive mistake to score the winner in the Anaheim Ducks’ 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night, when Teemu Selanne got a standing ovation in what could be his last visit to the city.
Selanne, who is retiring after this season, began his NHL career with Winnipeg in 1992-93 by setting rookie records of 76 goals and 132 points. The Ducks won’t return to Winnipeg unless the teams meet in the playoffs.
Viktor Fasth made 15 saves for Anaheim, which also got goals from Mathieu Perreault and Andrew Cogliano.
Andrew Ladd had a pair of goals for Winnipeg, Blake Wheeler assisted on both in his 375th NHL game and Ondrej Pavelec stopped 31 shots.
Hurricanes 2, Flyers 1
Raleigh, n.c. — Radek Dvorak scored the winner in the second period to lift Carolina to its first win of the season, beating Philadelphia.
Jay Harrison also scored, Jeff Skinner added two assists and Anton Khudobin made 17 saves in his Hurricanes’ debut.
Luke Schenn had the goal for the Flyers, who have opened the season 0-3-0 for the second year in a row. Before last year, Philadelphia had lost its first three games only one other time in franchise history.
Wild Loses Coyle
St. Paul, Minn. — Minnesota Wild center Charlie Coyle will miss three to four weeks with a sprained knee.
The Wild announced the timetable for Coyle’s recovery on Sunday night. The second-year player was hurt Saturday night in the team’s overtime loss to Anaheim.
Left wing Jason Zucker was recalled from Iowa of the AHL to take Coyle’s place. Zucker played in 20 games last season. Both Coyle and Zucker are 21, part of the Wild’s promising young core. Coyle was centering the second line, between Dany Heatley and Nino Niederreiter.
The Wild lost their first two games. They play at Nashville on Tuesday night before hosting Winnipeg on Thursday night.
