Alex Edler scored his first two goals of the season and added an assist to lead the Vancouver Canucks past the Washington Capitals 7-4 on Saturday night. Maxim Lapierre and Chris Higgins also had a pair of goals for the Canucks. Henrik Sedin scored the winner at 6:18 of the third period. Alex Ovechkin had two goals for the Capitals, who lost their second straight after opening the season with seven consecutive wins for the first time in franchise history. Mike Knuble converted a penalty shot and Marcus Johansson also scored for the Capitals. The Canucks, notorious for starting the season slowly, improved to 5-5-1 as they ended a two-game skid. It was Vancouver's third win in six home games.
