Vancouver: The Vancouver Canucks started slowly but roared into life in the second period to claim a fifth straight victory with a thumping 5-1 home win over the Calgary Flames yesterday.

Lee Stempniak had opened the scoring for the Flames late in the first period before the Canucks (7-2-2) bagged two goals in a 27-second span midway through the second. Alexandre Burrows scored before Jordan Schroeder claimed his first ever goal to put the Canucks ahead. With Canucks leading 3-1, Chris Higgins and Schroeder made it 5-1.REUTERS
