Canucks shutout Flames

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Jannik Hansen scored the winning goal, and rookie goalie Eddie Lack made 18 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Vancouver took the lead in the final minute of the first period on a terrific breakaway pass from Henrik Sedin and an even better finish by the speedy Hansen.

With the puck inside his blue line, Sedin spotted Hansen darting up the ice. Looking like a quarterback, Sedin paused as Hansen got open behind Mark Giordano and lofted a long pass that connected at the Flames’ blue line.

Hansen controlled the puck and quickly whipped a shot past Reto Berra.

Lack (7-2-0), making his third consecutive start with Roberto Luongo (lower body) on the injured list, won his fifth straight and earned his second shutout.

Mike Santorelli also scored for Vancouver (23-11-6), 10-1-1 in its last 12.
