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.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin also made their preseason debuts along with Dan Hamhuis, who played his first game since Game 1 of the finals.
