Third period outburst nets another win for the Canucks
It didn't start out as a great night tonight in Calgary. First Cory Schneider, who had started 11 consecutive games for Vancouver, was scratched with the flu. Then we witnessed 30 minutes of really dull and boring hockey, then all of a sudden we had some life.
Maxim Lapierre snapped a tie at 12:37 of the 3rd period and Roberto Luongo made 40 saves in a surprise start as Vancouver began a 5-game road trip with its 4th straight victory. Alex Burrows, Mason Raymond and Daniel Sedin also scored for the Canucks. They're now 6 points up on Minnesota in the northwest division.
Dustin Butler signed to a 1-day contract from High River Alberta dressed as Luongos backup.
