    CANUCKS 4, Predators 1

    Schwab stellar for Canucks

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (AP) -- Alexander Mogilny had a goal and two assists as the Vancouver Canucks snapped a three-game home losing streak, beating the Nashville Predators 4-1 Saturday night.
     Corey Schwab, acquired Friday in a trade from Atlanta to bolster the Canucks' injury-depleted goalie ranks, had his shutout bid foiled when Kimmo Timonen scored with 1:22 left in the game.
     Steve Kariya scored twice, as the Canucks snapped a three-game home losing streak. Curiously, all five of Kariya's goals have come on a Saturday night. Adrian Aucoin also scored for Vancouver in a game played before the smallest crowd -- 11,793 -- since GM Place opened in September 1995.
     Schwab, who didn't arrive in Vancouver until late Friday night, had a 3-1-1 record with the Orlando Solar Bears of the International Hockey League this season. He was acquired to fill in for injured goalies Kevin Weekes (sore right knee) and Garth Snow (fractured finger).
     Weekes, listed day to day, suffered his injury in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Phoenix, while Snow is at least another two weeks from returning to the lineup.
     The victory marked only the fourth time the Canucks (7-4-2-1) have won seven or more games in October, and first since going 7-3-0 to open the 1993 season.
     After winning three straight, Nashville has now lost two in a row. Nashville went 1-for-4 on the power play, extending its franchise-record streak to seven straight games with a power-play goal.
     Kariya, set up by Mogilny's drop pass, opened the scoring 2:08 into the game when he split the defense and snapped a shot over Mike Dunham's right shoulder.
     Aucoin, who also had an assist, put the Canucks up 2-0, scoring on the power play with 6.3 seconds left in the first period. Markus Naslund set up the goal, sweeping a pass into the high slot where Aucoin chased it down and snapped it in.
     Mogilny and Kariya then scored over a 3:20 span to give the Canucks a 4-0 lead by 9:29 of the second period.
     The Predators pulled Dunham after two periods, giving backup Tomas Vokoun his first appearance since Oct. 14.
