Feb. 16, 2012 at 12:50 AM   |   Comments

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Jannik Hansen put Vancouver in front with 6:29 to play Wednesday and the Canucks went on to defeat Colorado 3-1.

Hansen fired a slap shot past Semyon Varlamov to snap a 1-1 tie and Alex Burrows scored into an empty net with 1:04 remaining.

Varlamov replaced Jean-Sebastien Giguere in goal after Giguere suffered a groin injury late in the first period.

Giguere allowed a goal to David Booth 13 seconds into the game and Colorado tied it in the second on a wrist shot from Erik Johnson.

Roberto Luongo got the win by making 29 saves. The Canucks boosted their lead over Calgary in the Northwest Division to 16 points.
