VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Andrew Ebbett notched a pair of goals Monday and the Vancouver Canucks surged into the lead of the Northwest Division with a 5-3 win over Edmonton.

Daniel Sedin also scored and Roberto Luongo turned aside 18-of-21 shots to collect the victory.

Jordan Eberle, Ryan Smyth and Corey Potter scored for the last-place Oilers, who lost for the ninth time in 11 road games.

Nikolai Khabibulin made 21 saves for Edmonton.
