ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For much of the first period, the Anaheim Ducks looked overmatched against the top team in the NHL.The Montreal Canadiens were controlling the puck and outshooting Anaheim 15-3 at one point. What they were not getting, however, were any goals.Buoyed by the play of John Gibson in net, the Ducks recovered behind goals from Rickard Rakell and defenseman Cam Fowler to beat the Canadiens 2-1 on Tuesday night.We have to eliminate these starts that are pretty much pedestrian, Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said. It was kind of like they had the puck and wouldnt give it to us.But our goalie kept us in there and we got a 1-0 lead and then we were much better the rest of the game.The 23-year-old Gibson, in his first full NHL season, equaled a career high with 39 saves and outplayed counterpart Carey Price, the 2015 league MVP.Price made several excellent stops, but Gibson turned away Montreals first 38 shots. Andrew Shaw scored with 2 minutes left and Price finished with 36 saves for the Canadiens (16-5-2).It was a good test, Gibson said. Theyre the best team in the league and everyone wants to see how they stack up against the best. We played well.Anaheim (11-8-4) had lost three consecutive games before winning Friday at San Jose, the defending Western Conference champion.Price was among the league leaders in goals allowed per game (1.66) and led with 13 wins.Price came up big for us and kept us in the game, Montreal defenseman Jeff Petry said. We were using our speed at first and then got away from that. Its something we have to learn from, because if we use our speed were a tough team to handle.With Gibson stopping 17 shots, the Ducks were able to overcome their slow start when they scored on a power play with just more than 3 minutes to play in the opening period.Rakell tried a wraparound from behind the net, but Price deflected the puck to Anaheims Ryan Kesler. He attempted to slap it in, but it caromed off Price and right back to Rakell, who snapped it in.It was the ninth goal in 14 games for Rakell, a late signee.The Ducks began to play more aggressively after taking the lead. They went up 2-0 in the second period when Fowler beat Price to the short side.It was a weird angle, Fowler said. My body was facing the boards, so its not an ideal angle to get everything you want on the shot. But Im not complaining.The Ducks held their 2-0 lead until the final minutes, when the Canadiens pulled Price for an extra skater and Shaw ruined the shutout bid.Both goalies played really well, Montreal coach Michel Therrien said. I liked the way we got out of the gate. I thought we were ready to play. They put pressure on us and we didnt react the right way.SHAW SNAPSAfter the Canadiens pulled within a goal, Shaw was sent off for hooking with 28 seconds left and flipped out in the penalty box. He directed a profane tirade toward at least one official, slammed his stick on the glass and snapped it over his knee. Shaw was given a 10-minute misconduct and ejected.Game notes The Ducks went 8-4-2 in November and are 9-0 this season when leading after two periods. ...

GUELPH, Ont. -- Raymond Brown couldnt have picked a better time to register his first three-pick game. The rookie had three interceptions, returning one 115 yards for the touchdown, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pasted the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 52-0 in the final CFL exhibition game for both clubs. Brown, a defensive back from Kansas, picked off Justin Goltz in the end zone and returned it for the TD on the final play of the second quarter to give Hamilton a commanding 35-0 half-time lead. "One of the biggest job interviews of my life but its football and you let the cards fall where they may," he said. "You cant think about that but I hope I did (make a statement). "I saw him (Goltz) come to the side and there was only one receiver that way, I just glided over. I know he didnt see me and he threw it to me. The coaches have to make a tough decision and I respect them for whatever decision they make." Brown wasnt the only Ticats rookie to shine. Running back Lindsey Lamar returned a punt 76 yards for a touchdown while safety Erik Harris had an interception and fumble recovery and receiver Greg Ellingson had two catches for 88 yards -- including a 58-yard TD grab. Lamar took Mike Renauds 46-yard punt the distance on the final play of the first quarter to put Hamilton ahead 14-0. With receiver-returner Chris Williams continuing his contract dispute, the Ticats could be in the market for a special-teams dynamo. "I feel like Ive done everything I can," Lamar said. "I came, I showed up, I did everything the coaches asked me to do, I put my head down and worked hard. "Its out of my control now, its in Gods hands." CFL teams must reduce their rosters to 46 players by 10 p.m. ET on Saturday. "We have some players and thats a good thing," said Ticats head coach/GM Kent Austin. "We understand theres some tough decisions that have to be made and thats unfortunate but were going to have to make them as a staff." The first-year players shone in Hamiltons first "home" game at Alumni Stadium on a simply gorgeous evening. The facility on the campus of the University of Guelph will be the Ticats home away from home this season while a new venue is being built. The usual seating capacity here is roughly 7,500 but has been increased to 13,000 for Ticats games. The announced attendance for Thursdays game was 12,732. Although the game was Hamiltons first at Alumni Stadium, Ticats starter Henry Burris said the club is settled in. "This is already home and we look forwarrd to getting here and testing out the new locker-room," Burris said.dddddddddddd "Were so happy to be here and to be able to play in this atmosphere, were excited about it." The Ticats will move into their new stadium next season. The facility will also stage the soccer competition for the 2015 Pan American Games. Hamilton finished the exhibition season with a 2-0 record while Winnipeg was 0-2. The two clubs were tied for the CFLs worst record last year at 6-12. Chevon Walker, Andy Fantuz and Harold Mutobola had Hamiltons other touchdowns. Luca Congi booted the converts and three field goals while Brett Lauther had a single. Winnipeg kicks off the 2013 regular season Thursday hosting the Montreal Alouettes at new Investors Group Field. Hamilton travels to Toronto next Friday night to face the Grey Cup-champion Argonauts at Rogers Centre. The two teams took different approaches to this contest as Winnipeg came with just 41 players while Hamilton dressed 64. Among the notable Bombers missing was starting quarterback Buck Pierce, who didnt make the trip after going 0-for-5 passing in the clubs first exhibition game, a 24-6 home loss to Toronto last week. Goltz got the start and completed 12-of-21 passes for 101 yards and two interceptions as Winnipeg didnt get over centre field until just over two minutes were left in the opening half. Chase Clement, who left Hamiltons camp in 2009 after just a single practice, and Max Hall took second-half snaps for the Bombers, who committed nine turnovers (six interceptions, two fumbles, downs). It was a miserable pre-season for Winnipeg, which was outscored 76-6 in the two games and could only muster two field goals. "The Little Sisters of the Poor wouldve beaten us," Bombers head coach Tim Burke said. "Usually when you turn the ball over three times youre going to lose so when you do it nine times I guess it equals three losses." Burris started for Hamilton and looked solid, completing 13-of-17 passes for 198 yards and two TDs in the opening half before giving way to sophomore Dan LeFevour to start the third. Walker opened the scoring with a one-yard TD run at 7:43 of the first, which was set up by Harriss interception. Then at 11:55 of the second, Burris found Fantuz on a five-yard touchdown strike before hitting Ellingson at 13:48 to put Hamilton ahead 28-0. Congi booted three field goals in the third before Mutubola ran 37 yards for a TD at 9:49 of the fourth. He took a lateral from Emanuel Davis after he had an 23-yard interception return. ' ' '
