Teemu Selanne and the Anaheim Ducks looked ready to go after the NHL lockout.

The same could not be said for Vancouver goalie Cory Schneider.

The 42-year-old Selanne had two goals and two assists to help make Schneider's first season-opening start a short one, and Anaheim thumped the Canucks 7-3 on Saturday night.

''He defies age on certain nights,'' Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. ''A 42-year-old getting four points in an NHL game ... it's quite amazing.''

Selanne, the NHL's oldest player, is beginning his 20th NHL season. He was on the ice for 15:08 against the Canucks and became the first NHL player to have four points in a game at age 42 since Gordie Howe in February 1971 against Buffalo.

Another old-timer, 40-year-old Jaromir Jagr, also had two goals and two assists as Dallas beat Phoenix on opening night.

''Way to go old boys,'' Selanne quipped. ''Most of the nights you feel it's a young guy's game.''

Selanne's 249th power-play goal tied him for third on the NHL career list with Hall of Famer Phil Esposito. His two assists were the products of crafty moves on power-play faceoffs.

''Physically, health-wise, I feel great,'' Selanne said. ''But I know I need at least four or five games to get my legs back.

''To be honest, I can't wait until I start feeling good because it is going to be way more fun than this.'

I hope Teemu feels great all season. Old man might lead the league in scoring if he does.
