Canucks silence Leafs, honor Bure

Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) - Roberto Luongo made 21 saves for his 64th career shutout and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 11th straight time, rolling to a 4-0 win Saturday night.

The Canucks peppered James Reimer with 47 shots in a game that ended more than three hours after its scheduled start time.

It was delayed by a ceremony to retire Pavel Bure's jersey and groaned along through 94 combined penalty minutes.

Daniel Sedin, Zack Kassian, Chris Higgins and Dan Hamhuis had the goals and Luongo, facing just 10 shots in the last two periods, picked up his second shutout of the season.

Reimer faced 18 shots in the first period, 12 in the second and 17 in the third.

"Probably the worst game we played this season," said Toronto coach Randy Carlyle. "I'm very frustrated with our group and the way we played."

The Maple Leafs, who had a three-game winning streak snapped, haven't beaten the Canucks since winning both ends of a home-and-home series on Nov. 22-24, 2003.

Toronto center Dave Bolland's left leg was cut on a check in the second period and he was to have surgery, Carlyle said. Bolland was checked against the boards by Kassian, whose skate appeared to make contact with the lower part of Bolland's leg.

Bolland didn't put weight on his leg as he was helped off the ice.

"I don't know the degree of severity or which tendon (was cut) but he did suffer a cut to that area and he will have surgery to repair that tonight," said Carlyle.

Vancouver went 2-1 on a three-game homestand, bouncing back from a loss to Detroit on Thursday and winning its first game since signing Henrik and Daniel Sedin to four-year, $28 million contract extensions.

Reimer made three pad saves in a short span early in the first period as the Canucks controlled play, including one on a 2-on-1.

But Henrik Sedin's slap shot from the low right circle grazed brother Daniel on its way in eight seconds into a power play, giving the Canucks a 1-0 lead 6:03 into the period.

They made it 3-0 in the first 5:05 of the second period on Kassian's goal from the slot and Higgins' wrister from the left circle. Hamhuis scored from in close 14:28 into the third period to cap the scoring on a celebratory night for the Canucks.

Bure became the fourth player to have his number retired by the team in a ceremony before the game. "The Russian Rocket" played for Vancouver from 1991-98, scoring 254 goals with 224 assists.

"It's hard to believe it's been 22 years since I played my first NHL game here in Vancouver. I will never forget that," Bure said before a banner bearing his No. 10 was lifted into the rafters.

"The people of Vancouver have a big heart. Throughout my career I met many wonderful people who continue to support me both on and off the ice. ... It's because of those people and those friendships that I stand here tonight. I share this honor with all of you."
