NHL Game Summary - Ottawa at Vancouver
(Sunday, December 28th)
Final Score: Vancouver 3, Ottawa 0
Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - Curtis Sanford stopped 18 shots for his fifth career shutout as Vancouver beat Ottawa 3-0, sending the Senators to their 12th consecutive road defeat.
Alexander Edler, Henrik Sedin and Pavol Demitra each scored for the Canucks, who snapped a two-game skid.
The news wasn't all positive for the Canucks, though, as the team found out forward Taylor Pyatt suffered a broken foot in Friday's loss to Edmonton and will be out indefinitely.
Antoine Vermette had three shots on goal for the Senators, who have lost three in a row overall and are 2-7-1 in their last 10 tilts and remain in last in the Northeast Division with just 29 points on the year.
Martin Gerber made 29 saves for Ottawa, which is just 3-11-2 as the visiting club and last earned a win away from home when it beat Florida on October 30.
Sedin scored 8:17 into the game by tapping in his own rebound from in front, and the lead doubled 10:16 into the second on Demitra's successful shot, again from near the net.
Edler lit the lamp nearly seven minutes later on a blast from the slot.
Vancouver has won three straight and five of the last six meetings...The Canucks are 11-5-1 as the host this year ..Daniel Sedin had two assists.
