    CANUCKS 4, Sharks 1

    Brashear sets career high in Canucks win

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Donald Brashear matched a career-high with his ninth goal of the season and Mark Messier scored twice for the first time in almost two years as the Vancouver Canucks ended an eight-game home losing streak with a 4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday night.

     Brashear made it 3-1 at 17:09 of the second period when his long snap shot from the top of the slot bounced in off goalie Steve Shield's pads. He also scored nine goals in the 1997-98 season for Vancouver.

     The Canucks, who also halted an overall six-game losing streak, hadn't won at home since Dec. 22 when they beat Washington.

     Alexander Mogilny, back after missing seven games with an injury, recorded his 14th goal of the season for Vancouver.

     The last time Messier scored two goals was Feb. 28, 1998, in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa. With nine goals on the season, Messier now has a career total of 619.

     Mattius Ohlund and Andrew Cassels each had two assists.

     Todd Harvey scored the lone goal for the Sharks, who are 2-6-2 in their last 10.

     Shields was pulled after surrendering Brashear's goal and replaced by Evgeni Nabokov.

     The Canucks finished 2-for-3 on the power play; the Sharks were 0-for-4. Vancouver outshot San Jose 29-16.

     The Sharks opened the scoring 28 seconds into the game when Harvey rifled a slapshot from the right faceoff circle past Garth Snow.

     San Jose then missed a chance to pad the lead during a two-minute, two-man advantage.

     Mogilny tied the game when he took a pass from Ohlund at the blue-line and squeezed past two San Jose defenders before snapping a quick wristshot under Shields.

     Vancouver took a 2-1 lead with 14 seconds left in the first period when Messier shovelled in a rebound.

     The Canucks outshot the Sharks 13-3 in the second.

     With Mogilny back in the lineup, the Canucks sent down rookie Steve Kariya -- younger brother of Anaheim Mighty Ducks star Paul Kariya -- to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL earlier in the day. After opening the season with six goals and 11 points in 20 games, Kariya had been held without a point in the last nine games he played.
