Alex Burrows scored twice and Ryan Miller made 38 saves as the Vancouver Canucks hammered the Arizona Coyotes 7-1 on Monday night.

Daniel Sedin, Kevin Bieksa, Brad Richardson, Chris Higgins and Shawn Matthias also scored for Vancouver (20-11-2), which won its second straight. Miller improved to 18-7.

Defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the lone goal for the reeling Coyotes (11-18-4), who have one win in eight games.

Coyotes starter Mike Smith, who entered with one win in his last 12 starts, struggled and was replaced early in the second after giving up four goals on 11 shots.

Devan Dubnyk came on in relief and made 26 saves for Arizona.
