Makar of the Avalanche wins to give the Canucks their fifth consecutive loss

Three power-play goals were scored by Colorado in their 4-2 win over Vancouver. 1:02

Vancouver pulled Demko late on in the third, in an attempt to score another equalizer. Instead, Landeskog scored an empty net shot with 10 seconds remaining.

After Quinn Hughes of Vancouver was called to cross check Samuel Girard’s score, the Avs rose back to the top 3:12 into the third quarter.

Devon Toews sent Makar an elegant pass. Makar launched a rocket from the top circle just 10 seconds after the power play began.

Wednesday saw the Avs go 3 for 5 with man advantage while the Canucks lost three power plays to remain scoreless.

Vancouver was the league’s worst penalty-killer. It was able to avoid 62.3 percent of the penalties it received in the 16 first games of the season.

The Canucks briefly held the lead at 1:30 in the third when Poolman scored the Canucks first goal in a Canucks jersey. Vancouver went up 2-1 when Poolman’s shot from the top of their faceoff circle struck Kuemper. He was unable to catch the puck under the pads, but it did make contact with Kuemper.

The home side had little time to celebrate, though — seconds later, Alex Chiasson was called for elbowing.

Demko ran across the goalmouth in a penalty kill, before Kadri tapped the puck into the yawning net. The score was tied at 2-2.

Pushing and pushing followed the goal. Rantanen, Vancouver forward J.T. Miller were sent to the box as roughing.

Through much of the second half, the Canucks were dominant and outshot the Avs by 15-7.

Officials sent three players to penalty boxes in 30 seconds.

Vancouver’s woeful penalty killing began to pay off after Bo Horvat was arrested for hooking Rantenan. He appeared to disagree with the ref as Bo skated to the box.

Demko robbed Gabriel Landeskog at the door with a splits saving, but there were bad news after that whistle blew. Forward Tyler Motte was penalized for tripping Makar. The penalty allowed the Avs to play five-on-three hockey for a minute and 29 second.

Kadri was called by J.T. for interfering just four seconds into the lead Miller.

Vancouver equalized the score at 8.52 in the second period after the Avs put heavy pressure on their net.

Garland had his shot blocked at one end of the net, with Jason Dickinson at top of the crease receiving the puck. Dickinson grabbed a piece of puck and sent it rolling through blue paint. Garland was able to make his way to the opposite side of the net just in time to tap a backhanded goal in behind Kuemper’s skate for his fourth goal this year.

The Canucks continued the lead with a great two on one just seconds later. Kuemper however got a piece Nils Hoglanders shot and sent it up and out.

Canucks next: Canucks jet up

Colorado started Wednesday hot, outshooting the host side 9-1 within the first 10 minutes.

Alex Newhook had an excellent opportunity when he attempted a puck from the top of his crease. Demko stopped him. Vasily Podkolzin, a Russian rookie, was penalized for hooking Newhook.

Rantenan’s wrist shot over Demko’s glove was the Avs’ sixth goal of the season.

Friday’s homestand for the Canucks continues with a three-game series against the Winnipeg Jets. Seattle will host the Kraken on the same night.

In the upper bowl, midway through third period of the match, there were chants of “Fire Benning”, referring to Jim Benning who is the Canucks general manager.
