Chris Higgins lifts Canucks past Jets, 3-2
Question of the Day
WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Alexandre Burrows knew the goals would come. He didn’t expect it would take until March.
The Vancouver right winger scored his first and second goals of an injury-marred season to help the Canucks beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 in a shootout Wednesday night.
Chris Higgins had the only goal in the shootout as Vancouver handed the Jets their fifth straight loss.
Burrows was playing in only his 36th game this season after breaking a foot to start the season and then breaking his jaw in December.
“I hit a few posts, a few saves, a few rebounds, a few empty nets that should have gone in,” Burrows said. “It’s a fine line between goals and not.
“Tonight I was able to get a few. Even though, honestly, I could have got four, I think. I hit the post, a few tips that they blocked and a 2-on-1 in the first my stick breaks.”
Canucks coach John Tortorella said Kesler will be sent back to Vancouver for tests while his teammates keep travelling to games against Washington, Florida and Tampa Bay.
“He’s going to get some imaging and we’ll have a better indication of where he’s at, but he’s out for a while,” Tortorella said.
“I thought I had him lined up, he kind of bailed there at the last second there,” Slater said. “I didn’t stick my knee out or anything in his path, wasn’t leading with my leg. I thought I actually took the worst of it. Obviously, if he’s hurt bad, I feel bad about that. It wasn’t any intent. I thought I had him lined up and at the last second he tried to jump out of the way.”
Higgins scored the decisive goal with some quick stick-handling on his way toward Ondrej Pavelec, flipping the puck by him after the netminder went down.
Andrew Ladd scored his 18th goal of the season and Michael Frolik added his 13th that put the Jets ahead 2-1 early in the third period.
Burrows had tied it at 2 at 11:17 of the third period.
Vancouver is 2-4-1 in its last seven games.
