ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Henrik and Daniel Sedin both scored against Minnesota for the first time in their careers to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 win over the Wild on Thursday night.

Maxim Lapierre, Manny Malhotra and Ryan Kesler also scored for the Canucks.

A CT scan earlier in the day on Henrik Sedin's foot came back clean and the Canucks captain played in his 553rd consecutive game, the second-longest active streak in the NHL.

Henrik's foot appeared to be just fine when he flew in behind a Wild defender and gave the Canucks (34-15-5) a 3-1 lead early in the second period.

Dany Heatley scored 13 seconds into the game for the Wild (25-21-8), the fastest goal to start a game in team history.
