Aaron Johnson and Rick Nash also scored for Columbus, which had lost three of its last four games. Ron Hainsey added two assists. Kevin Bieksa and Daniel Sedin scored for Vancouver, losers of six in a row on the road. The Canucks have scored seven goals during the skid.
With goaltender Roberto Luongo pulled for an extra attacker, Daniel Sedin redirected a shot to make it 3-2 with 1:15 remaining. At least three Vancouver players had point blank shots as the final horn sounded, but the puck slid just wide of the right post.
