Recap: Ottawa vs. Vancouver

Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Daniel Sedin's 300th career NHL goal highlighted a second-period barrage that propelled the visiting Vancouver Canucks past the Ottawa Senators, 5-2.

The Canucks had found scoring to be a difficult task of late, but they pumped home four in the second, including three in a 3:35 span.

Sedin, David Booth, Jason Garrison and Mike Santorelli each had a goal and one assist for Vancouver, which had totaled two goals or less in seven of its previous eight games. Not surprisingly, the Canucks posted only one win during that stretch.

"We wanted to create more offense and we did," Garrison said. "It was nice to get one. We responded in the second after a poor start."

Roberto Luongo made 37 saves in Vancouver's sixth straight win over the Senators.

Craig Anderson surrendered the first four Canucks goals on 15 shots before being replaced by Robin Lehner in the decisive stanza.

The Senators have dropped six of nine.

"I don't think we're getting the team play," Senators head coach Paul MacLean said of the team's struggles. "We're not playing hard enough."

Vancouver trailed 1-0 at the outset of the second, but Sedin tied things up 31 seconds into the period. Alexandre Burrows set up the tally with tenacious forechecking as he muscled a Senators player off the puck behind the Ottawa net.

Henrik Sedin then made a quick pass out front to his twin brother and Anderson was slow to react to the shot from Daniel.

Booth gave the Canucks the lead 45 seconds later with a wrist shot from the top of the right circle following a faceoff win.

Garrison made it 3-1 on a power play at 4:06. He snuck in from the point to one-time a Henrik Sedin feed past Anderson's left arm.

Dale Weise extended the lead to 4-1 at 9:22, and Anderson was removed shortly thereafter.

The Senators were down two entering the second intermission after a late marker from Mika Zibanejad, but Santorelli buried his own rebound off a giveaway by Jason Spezza to make it 5-2 at the 5:31 mark of the third period.

Clarke MacArthur beat Luongo high from the left circle to open the scoring 8:50 into the contest. It was his 100th career NHL goal.

Daniel Sedin became the third player in franchise history to reach 300 goals, joining Markus Naslund (346) and Trevor Linden (318) ... The Canucks will host Ottawa on March 2nd at BC Place in the 2014 Heritage Classic.
