VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Daniel Sedin scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and added an assist, Alex Burrows also had a goal and an assist and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1 on Thursday night.

Sedin took a feed from Burrows at the top of the left circle and sent a low wrist shot through Semyon Varlamov’s legs — with twin brother Henrik Sedin screening in front — at 11:32 of the third to give Vancouver a 2-1 lead.

Sedin assisted on Burrows’ first-period goal, putting him two points behind his team-leading brother at 30 points. Henrik Sedin and Chris Higgins each had empty-net goals for the Canucks.

Matt Duchene scored for Colorado, which has lost four in a row and is tied for the fewest points in the NHL.
