Mikael Samuelsson and Canucks Cruise Past Flames, Win Three Straight


Raymond added an insurance goal at 1:03 of the third that gave the Canucks a 4-2 lead. It came while Vancouver was short-handed. Manny Malhotra poked the puck off the stick of Calgary defenceman Jay Bouwmeester and Raymond had a breakaway from his own blue-line. He beat Calgary goalie Miikka Kiprusoff with a nifty deke to his backhand.

Alex Burrows made it 5-2 at 6:16 of the third when he beat Kiprusoff high to the short side from the left circle.

Dan Hamhuis completed the third period onslaught with another power-play goal at 17:56.
