Daniel Sedin scored all four Canucks goals as they defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 4-2, last night in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Sedin completed his first career hat trick with 6:58 left, giving the Canucks a 3-2 lead, then added his fourth into an empty net with 34 seconds left. He now has 16 goals this season.
Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios left the game with a bruised left shoulder. The 42-year-old Chelios was falling to the ice after being tied up with Sedin on a faceoff with 4:32 left in the second period when 245-pound Canucks forward Todd Bertuzzi tripped over a Detroit player and landed on top of Chelios.
Canadiens 4, Senators 2 -- Steve Begin scored with 40.2 seconds remaining to give host Montreal, which added an empty-netter from Joe Juneau, a win over Ottawa.
Michael Ryder scored his second power-play goal of the game earlier in the period to tie it at 2. Begin tipped a slow-moving puck past goalie Patrick Lalime for the go-ahead goal after Francis Bouillon's point shot struck and broke Senators defenseman Karel Rachunek's stick.
Flyers 3, Blackhawks 1 -- Former Blackhawk captain Alexei Zhamnov scored his first goal with the Flyers, leading host Philadelphia.
Tony Amonte, also once a captain for the Blackhawks, added a goal for the Atlantic Division-leading Flyers.
Flames 2, Avalanche 0 -- Martin Gelinas scored on a deflection with 2:19 left and Chris Clark had an empty-netter for visiting Calgary.
