Winnipeg, Manitoba -- Chris Higgins scored the game winner in the third round of the shootout, as the Vancouver Canucks halted their seven-game road skid with a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday at MTS Centre.

After the first five shooters came up empty, Higgins charged in down the middle and made a number of quick dekes before stuffing a forehand past Ondrej Pavelec's outstretched right pad for the victory.

Alexandre Burrows scored his first two goals of the season to account for Vancouver's offense in regulation, while Eddie Lack stopped 32 shots before turning aside all three shooters in the shootout.

Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik each lit the lamp for Winnipeg, while Pavelec posted 31 saves in the setback, the Jets' fifth in a row (0-2-3).
