Henrik Sedin scores first of season, Canucks top Flames 5-3
CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Henrik Sedin scored for the first time this season 38 seconds after Bo Horvat's tiebreaking goal, lifting the Vancouver Canucks over the Calgary Flames 5-3 on Tuesday night.
Horvat scored 4:12 into the third on a power play when he swatted in a centering pass from Ben Hutton. Shortly after, former Canucks defenseman Matt Bartkowski got caught flat-footed in the neutral zone, enabling Henrik and Daniel Sedin to break in dangerously, with Daniel setting up Henrik.
