Two road games. Two division rivals. Two wins.

The Vancouver Canucks won their fourth consecutive game to sweep a two-game road trip with a 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild Thursday night at the Xcel Energy Center.

Daniel Sedin opened the scoring and Chris Higgins got the monkey off his back scoring his first goal of the season to give the Canucks a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes.

Mason Raymond, via the power play, and Jannik Hansen, breakaway goal, scored less than two minutes apart to close out the second with Vancouver sporting a comfortable 4-0 lead.

In his fifth start of the season, Cory Schneider dazzled making 22 saves; he was beat just once in the third period and stood on his head over the last 40 minutes stopping 19 of 20 pucks.
