VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Chris Higgins and David Booth each logged a goal and two assists Sunday in the Vancouver Canucks' 5-1 triumph over Calgary.

The Canucks spotted the Flames a 1-0 lead in the first period, then proceeded to score the game's next five goals as they improved to 10-0-2 against Calgary since October 2009.

Kevin Bieksa, Jannik Hansen and Daniel Sedin also scored for Vancouver, which won for the sixth time in seven games overall.

Roberto Luongo made his first start since Nov. 13 and responded by turning aside 21-of-22 shots, earning the victory.

Henrik Karlsson made 27 saves in the Flames' loss. Alex Tanguay got Calgary's only goal.
