Hansen, Miller Lift Canucks Over Avalanche 5-1
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Jannik Hansen scored twice, Ryan Miller made 37 saves and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-1 Sunday night to snap a four-game skid.
Adam Cracknell, Radim Vrbata and Christopher Tanev also scored for Vancouver. Henrik Sedin had four assists and Daniel Sedin had three assists.
The Canucks were 0-5-1 over their last six at Rogers Arena.
Semyon Varlamov stopped 23 shots, and the Avalanche ended a two-game winning streak. Matt Duchene scored with 42 seconds left for Colorado.
The Avalanche won 3-2 Saturday night at Edmonton, but trailed 3-0 after two periods in this one. It might have been closer if not for Miller's stellar play.
