NEW YORK -- The Vancouver Canucks broke through with their biggest scoring outburst of the season, got a strong defensive effort and some big saves from their goalie.Indeed, it took a complete team effort to end their long losing streak.Alexandre Burrows scored twice in the third period, and Henrik Sedin and Sven Baertschi each had a goal and an assist to help the Canucks snap a nine-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the New York Rangers on Tuesday night.Loui Eriksson also scored for the Canucks, who were 0-8-1 with eight straight regulation losses since opening the season with four wins. Bo Horvat had two assists and Jacob Markstrom finished with 23 saves as Vancouver won for the first time since beating Buffalo on Oct. 20.I thought we played the right way, Burrows said. We did a lot of good things defensively at the lines. We pressured a really good team, a fast team, and on the D side, we made some good plays, good reads. ... (Markstrom) played great again and its a big team win.The Canucks, outscored 28-9 with four shutouts in the previous eight games, had their most goals since a 4-3 overtime win against Carolina on Oct. 16 in the second game of the season.Burrows took advantage of a loose puck to give the Canucks a 3-2 lead at 9:21 of the third. Henrik Lundqvist made a sprawling save on a shot in close by Horvat, but the puck stayed out at the right side as several players jabbed at it before Burrows knocked it in for his first of the season.It was nice, especially at that time in the game, Burrows said. Were in a situation now where we (hadnt) won in a while, so any time you can score it makes it feel even better.Rick Nash, Pavel Buchnevich and Mika Zibanejad scored for the Rangers, who had won five straight while scoring at least five goals in each game. Buchnevich also had two assists.Antti Raanta stopped 20 shots, though he left for 6:19 in the third period after being run into by the Canucks Markus Granlund. Lundqvist made four saves on six shots while filling in.They were a desperate team and they played like it tonight, Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh said. They won more puck battles than us and they had the puck a little bit more than us. And when they had opportunities to score, they beared down and capitalized.Baertschi put Vancouver ahead by two as he tipped in a centering pass by Jack Skille for his first of the season with 6:52 left. Burrows added an empty-netter with 3:06 remaining to make it 5-2, and Zibanejad scored for the Rangers with 59 seconds to go to cap the scoring.Thats how you score goals in this league, Eriksson said. You need to be hungry in front of the net. I thought we stepped up really well today. It was nice to get the win.Sedin put the Canucks ahead 2-1 at 2:29 of the third when he fired a slap shot past Raanta for his fifth goal. It came just 8 seconds after Sedin came out of the penalty box following a high-sticking infraction.Nash tied it at 5:27 with his 400th career goal. With the Rangers on a power play, Buchnevich sent a pass from the right faceoff circle to Nash at the left side of the net and the veteran left wing tipped it into the open net.Buchnevich got the Rangers on the board at 7:20 with his third of the season, scoring for the third straight game. Markstrom got a piece of the puck but it got past the goalie and trickled over the goal line. Brady Skjei got an assist on the play, giving him one for the sixth straight game.The Canucks tied it with 4:42 left in the second on Erikssons first with the Canucks. He took a centering pass from Daniel Sedin from the left side of the net, slid to the right side and backhanded the puck over the legs of a sprawled Ranta.Game notes Daniel Sedins assist on Erikssons goal gave him a point in three straight games (two goals, one assist). Daniel Sedin has six goals and seven assists in 16 games against the Rangers. ... Henrik Sedin has four goals and eight assists in 15 games against the Rangers. ... Coming off a 4-2 loss at the New York Islanders on Monday night, Vancouver completed the fifth of 15 back-to-backs this season. The Canucks are 2-3-0 on the second nights. ... The Rangers and Canucks conclude their season series on Nov. 15 at Vancouver. ... The Rangers were called for two penalties after having been whistled for an NHL-low 78 penalty minutes in their first 13 games.UP NEXTCanucks: At Detroit on Thursday night in the finale of a six-game trip.Rangers: At Calgary on Saturday in the opener of a four-game trip.---Follow Vin Cherwoo at www.twitter.com/VinCherwooAP Simeon Thomas Jersey .

Match factsNovember 6-10, 2016, Harare Start time 10.00 am (0800 GMT)Big PictureIn July, Zimbabwe hosted New Zealand for two Tests in Bulawayo. Considering this is only the third time in 11 years that theyre playing four Tests in a season at home, Sri Lankas tour ought to have provided continuity. Instead, the players were involved, not for the first time, in a protest with Zimbabwe Cricket over non-payment of match fees. When matters were temporarily resolved in September, the board was grappling with issues surrounding their annual audit which was yet to be submitted to the ICC more than three months after it was due.That delayed the appointment of a new head coach. When Heath Streak finally took over from Makhaya Ntini, who briefly held the role after Dav Whatmores sacking, he had a little over three weeks to prepare a side that that was once again short on cricket in the lead-up to a major series, with the domestic season yet to be finalised. Considering all this, Zimbabwes performance in the first Test, also their 100th overall, in Harare was seen as a massive improvement even though they eventually lost by 225 runs.They batted close to 200 overs in the Test - something theyve done just twice in the last five years - and took it into the final hour before Sri Lanka dug deep into their reserves to eke out a win. The resistance in both innings was led by Graeme Cremer, the captain, who followed-up his maiden Test century with a gritty 43 in the second dig. It somewhat made up for the top orders inability to build on starts, something the team management would have taken note of.The one aspect that has always been encouraging - even in Zimbabwes cricketing decline over the last decade-and-a-half - has been the fielding. That came a cropper in Harare - as many as seven catches were dropped in the first innings. Their bowling effort, typically restrictive, was led by debutant medium-pacer Carl Mumba, who took four wickets in the second innings. The other bowlers were largely ineffective. Therefore, a shot at equalling the series seems far-fetched for Zimbabwe, although walking away with a draw is possible, like they showed last week.For Sri Lanka, time spent in the middle here will take them a step closer to narrowing down on their combination for the bigger battles in South Africa next month. Strong performances from Kusal Perera and Upul Tharanga will add to a healthy selection dilemma once Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews, the designated captain, return from injuries.Rangana Heraths delayed declaration in the second innings may have been scrutinised had Zimbabwe managed to hold on. For now, its a decision that can be firmly put on the back-burner as Sri Lanka aim for a clean sweep to cap Heraths first - and possibly last - series as captain.The implementation of DRS, for the first time in Zimbabwe, will add an element of intrigue. Zimbabwe have been at the centre of a number of poor umpiring decisions in recent times.Form guideZimbabweLLLLL (completed matches, most recent first) Sri Lanka WWWWDIn the spotlightMalcolm Waller came into the fray for selection for the first Test on the back of 37 and 87 for Zimbabwe A in a four-day fixture against Pakistan A. Prior to that, he recorded three successive half-centuries in the 50-over format. He made scores of 22 and 0 in the first Test; thhe timing of his dismissal in the second innings even as Zimbabwe fought to save the Test was crucial.dddddddddddd With Tarisai Musakanda, who also made runs against Pakistan A, breathing down his neck, there could be pressure on Waller to make a significant score here.Dilruwan Pereras utility in this Sri Lankan line-up, especially at home, cant be understated. Hes a more-than-capable lower-order batsman, and a tidy offspinner. But on surfaces that aid swing and seam movement, like Sri Lanka could encounter in South Africa, it remains to be seen how effective he would be. Perhaps another solid performance in the second Test could go a long way in convincing the team management that he could be a contender for a spot even if Sri Lanka decide to play an extra fast bowler.Team newsStreak and Tatenda Taibu, the selection convenor, have spoken of the need for continuity, which means Zimbabwe are likely to field the same XI despite their top-order batsmen failing to convert starts. That could mean Musakanda, who made 87 against Pakistan A to earn his selection in the Test squad, may have to wait longer for his first Test cap.Zimbabwe: (probable) 1 Tino Mawoyo, 2 Brian Chari, 3 Hamilton Masakadza, 4 Craig Ervine, 5 Sean Williams, 6 Peter Moor, 7 Malcolm Waller, 8 Graeme Cremer, 9 Donald Tiripano, 10 Carl Mumba, 11 Chris MpofuSri Lanka picked up 20 wickets, but were stretched a fair bit. With the top order among the runs in both innings, there could be a temptation to bring in left-arm wrist spinner Lakshan Sandakan to boost their bowling stocks. That could mean Asela Gunaratne, who made 53 and 16 not out, may have to make way.Sri Lanka: (probable) 1 Kaushal Silva, 2 Dimuth Karunaratne, 3 Kusal Perera, 4 Kusal Mendis, 5 Upul Tharanga, 6 Dananjaya de Silva, 7 Dilruwan Perera, 8 Rangana Herath, 9 Suranga Lakmal, 10 Lakshan Sandakan/Asela Gunaratne 11 Lahiru KumaraPitch and conditionsA similar pitch to the one last week is expected, which points to another workout for the bowlers. There is solace, though, in the fact that conditions are expected to be a lot cooler following intermittent spells of summer rain since the conclusion of the first Test. There could be brief rain interruptions from time-to-time in this Test.Stats and triviaHerath will surpass Anil Kumble and have the second-most number of wickets by a spinner in his first 75 Tests if he takes nine wickets in the match. Kumble had 346; Herath, after 74 games, is on 338. Muttiah Muralitharan tops the list with 420 wickets after 75Cremer aggregated more than half of his career runs (258 runs in 26 innings) in the first Test alone through scores of 102* and 43QuotesWe know that we cant control what decisions go our way, but as long as were playing that positive brand of cricket then hopefully a few things will go our way. Weve just got to do the best we can with bat or ball. Zimbabwes captain Graeme Cremer when asked about his team being rather luckless with umpiring decisions in the first TestFrom the beginning it was a different challenge and a different experience but Ive enjoyed every moment. Ive had a lot of confidence from my playing career, so that has helped as well.Sri Lankas stand-in captain Rangana Herath Cheap Jerseys Store Discount NFL Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
