Recap: Vancouver vs. Colorado

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - Mike Santorelli had two goals and an assist in the Vancouver Canucks' 3-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.

Ryan Kesler also scored for the Canucks, who have won four in a row. Roberto Luongo stopped 28-of-29 shots.

"If you want to be successful in this league, you've got to be able to hold onto leads, and tonight we did it the right way," Santorelli said. "We wanted to come out strong and not look at the time, and that's what we did."

Jamie McGinn scored the lone goal for the Avalanche, who went 1-2-0 on a three-game road trip. Jean-Sebastien Giguere turned aside 18-of-21 shots.

The Canucks got on the board at the 5:34 mark of the first period. Chris Higgins intercepted Nate Guenin's pass behind the Colorado net. Higgins slid a pass to Santorelli, who beat Giguere with a backhander.

Kesler scored 1:32 into the third frame. Giguere stopped Santorelli's shot from the slot, but the rebound went right to Kesler.

Less than six minutes later, Santorelli kept it on a 2-on-1 rush and wristed a shot past Giguere.

McGinn scored with 7.1 seconds left to spoil Luongo's shutout bid.

"I honestly felt we played a better game than them, and unfortunately we have nothing to show for the result," Colorado coach Patrick Roy said. "But, I mean, Luongo was good. Both goalies were good actually."

Giguere entered Sunday's game with a 7-0-0 mark this season ... Higgins had two assists ... Vancouver went 0-for-3 on the power play, while Colorado went 0-for-1 on the man advantage.
