Canucks shut out Rangers 5-0

Posted: Updated:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Henrik Sedin scored two goals and the Vancouver Canucks blanked the New York Rangers 5-0 on Thursday night.

New York's Alain Vigneault and Vancouver's John Tortorella coached against their former teams for the first time. They were replaced with each other after being fired following last spring's playoffs.

Moments before the opening faceoff, the Canucks saluted Vigneault with "Welcome back Coach A.V." on the scoreboard screen. He looked up at the image of himself, gave a slight nod and then focused on the impending faceoff.

Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo picked up his second win of the preseason. He recorded 41 saves for his first shutout as the Rangers outshot the Canucks 41-20.

Henrik Sedin's goals, his first of the preseason, came as he and twin brother Daniel celebrated their 33rd birthday. The Canucks finished the preseason with a 2-4-0 record.

The Rangers fell to 1-4-0 with one game still to play Friday in Las Vegas against the Los Angeles Kings.

Frank Corrado, Ryan Kesler and Hunter Shinkaruk also scored for the Canucks. Alex Edler had three assists.

Notes: The Rangers signed holdout center Derek Stepan, their top scorer last season, to a $6.15 million, two-year contract. Stepan had 18 goals and 26 assists last season. ... Canucks winger David Booth played his first game since suffering an ankle injury last March. Booth was scheduled to return Saturday in Edmonton, but he hurt his groin during the morning skate. He hit the post on a 2-on-1 break with Martin Biron beaten in the third period.
