Kariya and Roussel inspire Ducks

Mighty Ducks 4-3 Rangers

Dominic Roussel, who stopped 25 New York shots, and Paul Kariya, who has struggled this season but hit back with a goal and an assist, were the key players as the Mighty Ducks beat the Rangers 4-3 at Madison Square Garden.

Roussel saw his first action of the season in the Ducks' last game, a 23-minute relief stint during a loss at New Jersey.

But his first start of the season coincided with Anaheim's first victory since opening night.

"It's nice to come out with two points," Roussel said.

It's my job to score goals, so every game I expect to produce offensively
  Paul Kariya
"They have a good line-up and a good team and it's tough to win in this building."

Kariya was just happy to have got his season on track: "I've just played horribly this year," he said.

"It's my job to score goals, so every game I expect to produce offensively."

Kariya helped set up Marty McInnis' second goal of the season that gave Anaheim a 1-0 lead in the first period.

He made it 2-0 at 9:05 of the second - scoring the first of two Mighty Ducks goals in a 32-second span.

Sylvain Lefebvre, Theo Fleury and Jan Hlavac scored for the Rangers, who managed only two shots on goal in the first period.


The Rangers nearly tied it with 8:32 left, but Hlavac's shot hit the left post. Mike Leclerc restored the two-goal lead at 4-2 when he scored his first goal 52 seconds later.

New York closed to 4-3 with only 56.9 seconds left when Hlavac got one past Dominic Roussel on the power play and with goalie Kirk McLean pulled for an extra skater.

A furious attempt to tie in the closing seconds was thwarted.

"Initially in the game we have to get the puck deep, drive, forecheck and get the puck in the net. We did not seem to do that," Rangers captain Mark Messier said.

Canucks 5-2 Maple Leafs

Henrik Sedin scored his first NHL goal and added an assist as Vancouver beat visiting Toronto.

Henrik also assisted on twin brother Daniel's second goal of the season at 17:56 of the first period.

Markus Naslund started a three-goal first period with his fourth score just 3:51 into the game.

He then added his fifth into an empty net at 18:53 of the third.
