John Gibson made 18 saves to record a shutout in his NHL debut and the Anaheim Ducks eliminated the Vancouver Canucks from playoff contention with a 3-0 victory Monday night.
The 20-year-old Gibson, who led the United States to a gold medal at the 2013 world junior hockey championship, wasn't tested much but made a huge save on Niklas Jensen to preserve the shutout with about eight minutes gone in the third.
Eddie Lack stopped 20 shots in his 19th straight start for Vancouver since the Olympic break.
