Senators rally to top Canucks in Heritage Classic

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Ottawa Senators scored four unanswered goals to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 Sunday in the 2014 Heritage Classic at BC Place.

Clarke MacArthur had a goal and an assist for the Senators, who snapped a two- game skid. Erik Karlsson, Cody Ceci and Colin Greening also lit the lamp.

Craig Anderson stopped 29-of-31 shots in the victory.

Jason Garrison and Zack Kassian scored for the Canucks, who have dropped two straight. Eddie Lack turned aside 24-of-27 shots.

Vancouver forward Daniel Sedin exited early in the second period with a lower- body injury. Sedin was checked awkwardly into the boards by Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot and was holding his left leg before gingerly walking to the locker room.

The final outdoor contest this season felt more like an indoor game. The roof at BC Place, home of the CFL's BC Lions, was closed due to precipitation outside.

The Canucks scored less than five minutes into the game. While on the power play, Garrison's slap shot from the right point beat traffic in front and got past Anderson.

Kassian made it 2-0 at 11:27 when he carried the puck to the bottom of the right circle and put a wrist shot past Anderson.

Ottawa responded with two goals later in the first period. Eric Gryba's initial shot deflected off a skate and went to Erik Condra in the slot. MacArthur deflected Condra's shot past Lack at the 15:15 mark.

Karlsson carried the puck to the top of the right circle before beating Lack for a power-play goal at 17:03.

Ceci scored off a pass from Jason Spezza at 10:11 of the middle stanza to make it 3-2 Ottawa.

Greening put the game away with an empty-net goal at 18:27 of the third.

Anderson made 11 saves in the final stanza to secure the victory.
