EDMONTON, Alberta, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- The Sedin brothers accounted for four points Sunday in the Vancouver Canucks' 2-1 decision over Edmonton.

Henrik Sedin scored one goal and assisted on Alexandre Burrows' goal. His brother Daniel assisted on both scores.

Burrows' first-period tally broke a scoreless tie, and Henrik Sedin scored off the rebound of his brother's shot on Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk for a 2-0 lead midway through the second.

Roberto Luongo was barely tested by Edmonton, turning aside 11-of-12 shots and carrying a shutout until there were 5 seconds left in the contest, when Jordan Eberly scored on a power play.

The Canucks won their fourth straight road game and improved their record against Northwest Division foes to 8-1-1.

The Oilers, meanwhile, saw their stretch of six straight games with a point snapped.

Dubnyk took the hard-luck loss, stopping 30-of-32 shots.
