Dan Hamhuis, Dale Weise and Alex Edler also had goals for the Canucks.

Dennis Wideman and Alex Tanguay scored for Calgary (13-20-4), which has lost five straight overall and 13 consecutive on the road (0-12-1). The Flames are 14th in the 15-team Western Conference.

With a chance to move four points ahead of idle Minnesota for the Northwest Division lead, the Canucks jumped to an early 2-0 lead.
