Burrows scores 2 goals 17 seconds apart in 3rd period to lead Canucks over Flyers 4-1

Alexandre Burrows scored a pair of goals 17 seconds apart in the third period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Burrows, back after missing a win Saturday over Toronto because of a groin injury, snapped a 1-1 tie at 6:44. He ripped a shot between Steve Mason's pads after he took a feed from Daniel Sedin.

Fans barely had a chance to sit when Burrows scored his second of the night and 14th of the season off a rebound of Sedin's shot at 7:01.

Alexander Edler added a goal and an assist, and Radim Vrbata scored into an empty net for the Canucks, who moved three points ahead of Calgary for second place in the Pacific Division. Eddie Lack made 27 saves.

Michael Raffl had the lone goal for Philadelphia, and Mason stopped 31 shots.
