VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 4 (UPI) -- Alexandre Burrows scored twice in regulation and once in the shootout Tuesday to lead the Vancouver Canucks past Anaheim 5-4.

Burrows, Alexander Edler and Maxim Lapierre all scored in the shootout, which extended the Canucks' winning streak to seven games.

Corey Snyder replaced Roberto Luongo in the second period and stopped all nine shots he faced, although he gave up a shootout score to Teemu Selanne. Luongo was taken out after allowing four goals on 15 shots.

Jonas Hiller had 35 saves for the Ducks, who have lost three straight. Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Rod Pelley and Devante Smith-Pelly scored in regulation.

Anaheim took a 4-2 lead on Smith-Pelly's tip-in goal at 7:03 of the second period, but Vancouver responded with goals by Burrows and Lapierre that knotted the score heading into the third period.
