VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP)—Defenseman Brad Lukowich scored a third-period goal and the Vancouver Canucks earned a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night.

Lukowich, who was in the American Hockey League until recently because of the Canucks' salary cap issues to start the season, quickly snapped a shot over Ryan Miller's glove at 5:21 of the third period for his first goal since Nov. 5, 2007.
