Chris Higgins lifts Canucks past Jets, 3-2

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Chris Higgins had the only goal in the shootout and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Wednesday night, rebounding from a third-period collapse in their last game.

Higgins flipped the puck by Ondrej Pavelec after the goalie went down.

The Canucks, 2-4-1 in their last seven games, allowed seven goals in the third period in a 7-4 home loss to the New York Islanders on Monday night.

Alexandre Burrows, with the first and second goals of his injury-marred season, tied it 2 at 11:17 of the third period.

Andrew Ladd and Michael Frolik scored for the Winnipeg. The Jets have lost five straight.
