VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Daniel Sedin scored the game-winner in the third period and added an assist as the Vancouver Canucks beat the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Monday night.

Zack Kassian and Ryan Kesler also scored for Vancouver, which played at Rogers Arena for the first time since Oct. 12 after a seven-game trip. Henrik Sedin added an assist to extend his point streak to nine games.

Roberto Luongo made 17 saves as the Canucks won their fourth straight.

Jason Chimera, with a goal and an assist, and Mikhail Grabovski scored for Washington, which got 38 saves from Michal Neuvirth.

After the teams traded goals early in the third period, Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin played keepaway in the Washington zone to give Vancouver the lead for good. Daniel Sedin finished the sequence off by faking a pass at the top of the slot and blasting a shot past Neuvirth at 5:01 to make it 3-2.
