John Gibson put an end to Vancouver's playoff hopes with a perfect start to his career.
The reeling Anaheim Ducks needed something to stop their slide. A record-setting second period did the trick.
Jussi Jokinen had a goal and two assists in the first period, Evgeni Malkin scored in the opening minute, and the Pittsburgh Penguins chased Jonathan Quick in a 4-1 victory over the struggling Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
Ryan Getzlaf has been shooting the puck more this season, and it's been paying off for himself and his teammates.
"I think it was just desperation," Winnik said.
"The way they play on the power play, they get four guys down below the hash marks after a shot," Winnik said after his first goal since Oct. 10. "It was something we knew going into the game, so we felt there could be chances that way and we were fortunate to get one tonight. It felt really good. It was a long time coming. It's nice to get that pressure off me."
