Canucks 5, Coyotes 0

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 25, 2011
Cory Schneider got his second shutout in a row, needing just 21 saves against Phoenix's anemic offense, and the Vancouver Canucks routed the Coyotes 5-0 on Friday night. Vancouver, in its third win in a row, scored three goals in a 2:12 span early in the second period. Ryan Kesler had a goal and an assist. Sami Salo and David Booth also scored in the outburst. Maxim Lapierre and Alexandre Burrows added third-period goals. Phoenix's Mike Smith had 32 saves as the Canucks outshot the Coyotes 37-21. It was the most one-sided win for Vancouver and one-sided loss for Phoenix in the young season. Vancouver has outscored its opponents 10-1 in its three-game winning streak. Schneider and the Canucks won at Colorado 3-0 on Wednesday night. Three of the goals came after Phoenix turnovers. Vancouver dominated the first period, outshooting the Coyotes 16-4, several from close range, but Smith stopped them all. The inevitable breakthrough came shortly after the second period began. Salo's fierce slap shot zipped by two skaters - one for each team - then bounced off the crossbar into the net for his fifth goal of the season to make it 1-0 5 minutes into the period. Just 1:22 later, Kessler stole the puck from Phoenix's Raffi Torres and scored his fifth of the season unassisted on a breakaway at it was 2-0 6:33 into the period. The third goal, from just in front of the net by Booth with an assist from Kessler, made it 3-0 with 12:47 still to play in the second to the cheers of the large contingent of Vancouver fans among the crowd. Later in the second, the Canucks had a two-man advantage for 1 1/2 minutes but failed to score. In one positive in the lopsided loss, Phoenix had five penalty kills. In the final period, Lapierre took the puck away from Derek Morris to score, then a turnover by David Schlemko led to the goal by Burrows. The Coyotes were coming off a 4-2 victory over Anaheim, but they were sluggish from the start and didn't reach double digits in shots until the final seconds of the second period. Notes: Kyle Turris, who ended his holdout and signed by the Coyotes this week, skated with the team Friday and will be sent to the teams AHL Portland affiliate to work his way into hockey condition. ... The Canucks conclude their three-game road trip Saturday night at San Jose. ... The Coyotes end their three-game home stand Saturday against Dallas. ... Vancouver had a 6-0 win at Phoenix last season.
