ANAHEIM (AP) -Ryan Getzlaf scored twice and Jonas Hiller made 40 saves as the Anaheim Ducks closed their exhibition season with a 5-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

Bobby Ryan, the second overall pick behind Sidney Crosby in the 2005 draft, had four assists for the Ducks.

Todd Bertuzzi had a goal and two assists for Anaheim in his first game against Vancouver since being traded by the Canucks to the Florida Panthers in June 2006. Bertuzzi played eight seasons with the Canucks from 1998-2006.

The Ducks will travel to London on Monday in advance of their two-game, season-opening series against the Los Angeles Kings next weekend. The Kings wrapped up the U.S. portion of their preseason play Saturday with a 3-2 shootout win against Colorado in Las Vegas.

Getzlaf helped get the Ducks offense going, netting two goals in the first period. Francois Beauchmein and Corey Perry scored in the second before Bertuzzi netted his first goal with Anaheim in the third.

The Canucks outshot the Ducks 40-39 but couldn't beat Hiller, a 25-year-old goalie signed by the Ducks as a free agent in late May after he spent four seasons in the Swiss elite league.

With regular starter Jean-Sebastien Giguere recovering from sports hernia surgery, Hiller and Ilya Bryzgalov will share the Ducks goaltending duties in London.
