    CANUCKS 5, Blackhawks 4

    Canucks prevail in offensive slugfest

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Alexander Mogilny scored two goals, including one on a short-handed breakaway in the third period, as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 on Wednesday night.
     With the score tied 3-3 and Chicago pressing in the Vancouver zone, defenceman Murray Barron cleared the puck up off the boards to Mogilny, who had snuck out to centre ice.
     Mogilny had a clear breakaway on Jocelyn Thibeault, waited until he was in front of the crease, then pulled the puck to his backhand and slid it past the goalie to give the Canucks the lead.
     After Vancouver's Artem Chubarov and Chicago's Steve McCarthy exchanged goals, the first in the NHL for both, Blackhawks head coach Lorne Molleken called for a measurement of Mogilny's stick. It was found to be illegal and the winger was charged with a two-minute penalty, but Chicago failed to capitalize.
     Markus Naslund and Harry York also scored for the Canucks (2-0-0-0).
     Doug Zmolek, Alexei Zhamnov and Wendel Clark each scored for Chicago (0-2-0-0). Tony Amonte had four assists.
     The Blackhawks have surrendered 13 goals in their first two games of the season.
     Vancouver outshot Chicago 15-5 in the second period and 33-20 overall. Both teams finished 1-for-5 on the power play.
     Chicago opened the scoring 20 seconds into the game when a wide open Zmolek one-timed a cross-crease pass from Tony Amonte past Kevin Weekes.
     Vancouver tied it 90 seconds later when Naslund picked up a rebound and lifted the puck over a sprawling Thibeault for his second goal of the season.
     Mogilny gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead at 8:47 of the first when he scored his first of the season off a rebound.
     York gave the Canucks a 3-1 lead on a power play midway through the second, but the Blackhawks cut the deficit to one with 27 seconds left in the period on Zhamnov's goal.
     Clark tied the game 3-3 at 3:24 of the third.
     Vancouver outshot Chicago 36-19.
