Canucks 5, Senators 2: Daniel Sedin kicked off a four-goal second-period outburst with his 300th career goal as Vancouver extended its dominance over host Ottawa.
David Booth, Jason Garrison and Dale Wiese also contributed to the outburst as the Canucks defeated Ottawa for the sixth straight time. Mike Santorelli added a third-period goal while Roberto Luongo made 37 saves.
Clarke MacArthur and Mika Zibanejad countered for the Senators, who have been outscored 26-9 in their last six games versus the Canucks. Craig Anderson was chased from the Ottawa net after allowing four goals on 15 shots.
MacArthur opened the scoring at 8:50 into the game, collecting a Mark Methot pass inside his own blue-line and blazing down the left wing before firing a shot that beat Luongo up high. Sedin evened things 31 seconds into the middle period, putting a low shot past Anderson on a centering pass from his brother Henrik.
Booth put Vancouver in front just 45 seconds after Sedin's milestone tally, and Garrison extended the lead on a power-play at 4:06 after sneaking in untouched and unleashing a one-timer from the bottom of the right circle. Vancouver completed the scoring barrage at 9:22, as Weise chased Anderson with a shot from in close that beat the sprawling netminder after he stopped Garrison's initial shot from the point.
