Thomas Vanek had two goals and three assists, Brock Boeser added a goal and three assists, and the Vancouver Canucks snapped a four game losing streak with a 5 2 victory over the Blackhawks on Thursday night.
Sam Gagner had two goals and an assist for Vancouver 16 17 5 , which returned from its Christmas break https://www.blackhawkschifans.com/richard-panik-jersey-c-16.html with just its second victory in the last 10 games. Jacob Markstrom made 30 saves. The Hawks 17 14 5 have lost three in a row after winning five straight. Nick Schmaltz and Ryan Hartman scored for the Hawks, and Anton Forsberg made 26 saves while subbing for injured starter Corey Crawford.
The Canucks snapped a 1 1 tie with seven minutes left in the second period when Vanek, who was robbed twice by Forsberg in the first, finally broke through. Boeser played the puck behind the net to Gagner Nick Schmaltz Jersey, and he set up Vanek s 11th goal with a no look pass to the forward in front.
Gagner then gave Vancouver a two goal cushion 1 27 into the third when he took a pass from Vanek and beat Forsberg for his sixth of the year. Forsberg got the start after the Blackhawks put Crawford on injured reserve Wednesday with an upper body injury.
Vanek got his second of the night with 3 31 left when Boeser, who retook the NHL rookie scoring lead with his four points, fed a behind the back pass in front to set up his linemate s 12th of the season.
