Well now, maybe Vancouver isn't in trouble offensively after all.

The Canucks, coming off a 1-1-1 road trip where they tallied only four goals, lit up the Nashville Predators 7-4 Thursday night at Rogers Arena for their highest offensive output of the season.

Seven different Canucks scored and nine had at least a point as Vancouver opened a four-game homestand by scoring seven goals on only 22 shots; Andrew Ebbett, Alex Edler, Mason Raymond, Maxim Lapierre, Jannik Hansen, Henrik Sedin and David Booth all found the back of the net.

Ebbett (1-2-3), Hansen (1-2-3) and Raymond (1-1-2) combined for eight points; Ebbett got his first goal of the season and tied a career-high with three points, while Booth put his first of the season into the empty net to put the icing on the cake.

Roberto Luongo was stellar despite allowing four goals, he recorded 29 saves for his seventh win of the season and second straight.

The Canucks, who return to first place in the Northwest Division, are back in action Saturday night at the Vancouver Millionaires when the Detroit Red Wings come to town.
