OTTAWA - Daniel Sedin and Alex Burrows each had a goal and an assist, and Henrik Sedin also had two points to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 6-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

Vancouver's top line produced Daniel Sedin's 10th goal 33 seconds into the game. The trio combined efforts once again, 22 seconds into the third on Burrows' first goal of the season.

Ryan Kessler scored his second goal of the game 49 seconds later to put the Canucks up 4-1 at 1:11. Tanner Glass and Mario Bliznak also scored as Vancouver got four goals in the third.

Roberto Luongo made 33 saves for the Canucks, who saw a six-game winning streak end Tuesday with a 2-0 loss in Montreal.

Ottawa ended a four-game winning streak.

Peter Regin scored his first goal of the season in the first. He also assisted on Sergei Gonchar's goal late in the third.

Alex Kovalev recorded his 998th career point with an assist on Regin's goal.

Pascal Leclaire stopped 27 shots in his first start since injuring his groin in the opening minutes of a 5-1 win over Carolina on Oct. 17.

The Sedin twins finished off a 2-on-1 initiated by Burrows' flip pass up the ice from his own zone to give Vancouver an early 1-0 lead.

Henrik Sedin took the puck off Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson and drove in with his brother, feeding a setup past Ottawa defenceman Sergei Gonchar which Daniel Sedin put into the left side of the net on the first shot faced by Leclaire in four weeks.

Henrik Sedin got his second assist early in the third as Daniel Sedin fed a pass from behind the net to Burrows, who was left alone at the edge of the crease to score his first goal in four games.

Glass scored his first goal at 11:03. Bliznak added his first NHL goal at 16:36 to make it 6-1.

NOTES: Former NHLers Howard "Rip" Riopelle and Tony Licari, both Ottawa natives and Royal Canadian Air Force World War II veterans, took part in a ceremonial faceoff prior to the game. Riopelle spent three seasons with the Montreal Canadiens in the late 1940s. Licari played nine games with Detroit in 1946-47 ... Canucks RW Rick Rypien fought with Matt Carkner and Chris Neil in the second ... Senators G Brian Elliott sat out after making 11 starts in a row following Leclaire's injury ... A sellout crowd of 19,191 was on hand ... The Senators begin a four-game road trip Saturday in Boston against the Bruins (7 p.m., CBC, Team 1200).
