Canucks roll past Ducks

Dec 30, 2011 - 6:29 AM
Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Daniel Sedin scored twice, and Henrik Sedin added a goal and two assists as the Vancouver Canucks rolled to a 5-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

Cody Hodgson and Mason Raymond also tallied, and Alexandre Burrows added two assists for the Canucks, who have won three straight and six of their past seven.

Cory Schneider made 30 saves for the win.

"My defensemen bailed me out a couple of times," said Schneider. "Pucks were leaking in and they made some big plays for me."

Nick Bonino and Bobby Ryan scored for the Ducks, who have lost five of their last six.

Jonas Hiller was pulled in the second period after allowing four goals on 16 shots. Dan Ellis finished the game and recorded 14 stops.

A pair of wristers by Henrik Sedin and Hodgson gave Vancouver a 2-0 lead after the first period.

"You can't go down two in the first," said Ryan. "You can't play from behind on a team like that because they know how to win and close games out. They just kept pushing and outplayed us in every aspect I thought."

From the left circle, Kesler fed Raymond in the slot as he tipped it home for a 3-0 lead, and Daniel Sedin lit the lamp with a wrister for a 4-0 bulge heading into the final period.

Ryan ended the shutout bid at the 6:11 mark of the third, and Bonino made it a two-goal game with just over five minutes to go.

But Daniel Sedin scored his second goal with under four minutes remaining to seal the win for Vancouver.
