VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Matt Bartkowski and Emerson Etem each scored two goals, and Jake Virtanen had the go-ahead score in the third period, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.
Bartkowski added an assist for the first three-point game of his career, Linden Vey had two assists, and Ryan Miller made 27 saves for the Canucks.
Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone and Bobby Ryan had goals for Ottawa, which had its four-game winning streak stopped. Dion Phaneuf and Jean-Gabriel Pageau each had two assists. Craig Anderson made 31 saves.
Trailing 3-2 after two periods, Vancouver tied it at 4:01 of the third when Bartkowski blasted his fifth of the season past Anderson. The goal stood after an Ottawa coach's challenge for offside.
Virtanen gave the Canucks the lead at 10:59 on the power play when the rookie swatted a loose puck past Anderson for his fifth.
