VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Henrik Sedin scored twice and twin brother Daniel Sedin had a goal and two assists as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2 on Friday night.
Alex Edler, Zack Kassian, and Jeremy Welsh — with his first career NHL goal — also scored as the Canucks snapped a five-game losing streak and handed Columbus its fifth loss in seven games.
Vancouver had scored only six goals over its previous five games — and was held to one goal in four of them. Daniel Sedin's points snapped a six-game pointless drought — his first such streak since 2002-03.
Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo only had to make 14 saves as Vancouver outshot Columbus 35-16.
Matt Calvert and Artem Anisimov scored for the Blue Jackets, and Sergei Bobrovsky had 29 saves.
