ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)

Lubomir Visnovsky scored in the third period and the Anaheim Ducks spoiled Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo's preseason debut with a 3-2 victory over the Canucks on Wednesday night.

Visnovsky scored on a slap shot during a power play at 5:08 of third. Jonas Hiller made 31 saves and withstood the Canucks' 6-on-4 power play in the final minute.

It was the first game for Luongo and several other Vancouver stars since the Canucks lost to Boston in the Stanley Cup finals. Luongo made 19 saves.

''All things considered, it was my first game. I think it went all right,'' Luongo said. ''Obviously I'd like to have at least one of those (goals) back but the feeling in general was pretty good.''

''I started feeling pretty decent in the second period. Obviously (there were) a couple of lucky goals in the first period, but I was able to stay focused there in the second and make some stops.''

Daniel and Henrik Sedin also made their preseason debuts along with Dan Hamhuis, who played his first game since Game 1 of the finals. Vancouver rested them early in the preseason after a short summer.

The Canucks (2-4) erased a 2-0 deficit in the second period with goals by Sami Salo and Henrik Sedin. Salo scored on a slap shot during a two-man advantage and Henrik Sedin deflected Kevin Bieksa's shot past Hiller.

Hiller again looked solid in his second preseason game after vertigo cut short his season.

''If he continues to be symptom free as he has shown us, then there's no reason to forget what happened and go forward,'' Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said.

The Ducks (3-3) scored twice in 66 seconds late in the first period.

Cam Fowler broke in on the right side of the goal and wristed a shot that deflected off defender Mark Mancari's stick and into the net with 3:25 left.

Bobby Ryan scored on a wrist shot from well above the right circle with 2:19 remaining.

Anaheim played nearly all of its available regulars. Fowler and Ryan each had a goal and an assist.
