COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Alexandre Burrows' power-play goal midway through the third period capped the Vancouver Canucks' 3-2 comeback victory on Monday night that saddled the Columbus Blue Jackets with their first 0-3 start in franchise history.
Chris Higgins and Cody Hodgson also scored for the Canucks. Cory Schneider had 23 saves, almost half of which came in the opening period.
Cam Atkinson scored his first NHL goal and Vinny Prospal also scored for Columbus, which had opened seasons 0-2 twice before in their 11 seasons.
The Blue Jackets were 0 for 5 on the power play and are now 0 for 16 with a man advantage on the season.
