CHICAGO, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Henrik Sedin scored and added three assists Sunday, helping the Vancouver Canucks dominate the Chicago Blackhawks 6-2.

The Canucks took advantage of a penalty-prone Chicago squad, scoring five of their six goals on power plays.

Daniel Sedin contributed a goal and two assists. David Booth scored his first goal as a Canuck and added an assist for the Canucks, who avoided a third straight loss in a rematch of last year's Western Conference first-round series. Jannik Hansen and Aaron Rome also scored.

Roberto Luongo turned aside 38-of-40 Chicago shots to earn the victory.

Corey Crawford yielded all six goals on 38 shots for the Central Division-leading Blackhawks, who fell to 8-3-3 to start the season.

Michael Frolik and Marcus Kruger found the net for Chicago.
