CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler scored and added two assists while Roberto Luongo made 28 saves to help the Canucks rout the Calgary Flames 5-1 on Tuesday night.

Chris Higgins, Alexandre Burrows, Daniel Sedin and Cody Hodgson also scored for Vancouver (6-5-1), which kicked off a six-game road trip.

Alex Tanguay scored the lone goal for Calgary (4-5-1), ruining Luongo's shutout bid with 32 seconds left in the game.

Luongo was coming off a miserable October in which he went 3-3-1 with a 3.54 goals-against average and a meager .869 save percentage.
