Canucks shut out Rangers 5-0

Posted: Updated:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Henrik Sedin scored two goals and the Vancouver Canucks blanked the New York Rangers 5-0 on Thursday night.

New York's Alain Vigneault and Vancouver's John Tortorella coached against their former teams for the first time. They were replaced with each other after being fired following last spring's playoffs.

Moments before the opening faceoff, the Canucks saluted Vigneault with "Welcome back Coach A.V." on the scoreboard screen. He looked up at the image of himself, gave a slight nod and then focused on the impending faceoff.

Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo picked up his second win of the preseason. He recorded 41 saves for his first shutout as the Rangers outshot the Canucks 41-20.

Henrik Sedin's goals, his first of the preseason, came as he and twin brother Daniel celebrated their 33rd birthday. The Canucks finished the preseason with a 2-4-0 record.

The Rangers fell to 1-4-0 with one game still to play Friday in Las Vegas against the Los Angeles Kings.

Frank Corrado, Ryan Kesler and Hunter Shinkaruk also scored for the Canucks. Alex Edler had three assists.

Notes: The Rangers signed holdout center Derek Stepan, their top scorer last season, to a $6.15 million, two-year contract. Stepan had 18 goals and 26 assists last season. ... Canucks winger David Booth played his first game since suffering an ankle injury last March. Booth was scheduled to return Saturday in Edmonton, but he hurt his groin during the morning skate. He hit the post on a 2-on-1 break with Martin Biron beaten in the third period.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.

    With the All-Star break over and the second half of the MLB season well underway, the New York Mets (46-52 as of July 20) and the New York Yankees (50-47 as of July 20) find themselves in the same situations each team is accustomed to at this time of the season. The Yankees are in the middle of the AL East Division title while the Mets are scrapping for every win possible to stay relevant in the NL East. But while the record says one thing, reality says another.

    Derek Jeter soaked in the adulation from fans and players during one more night on baseball's national stage, set the tone for the American League with a pregame speech and delivered two final All-Star hits. He received a 63-second standing ovation when he walked to the plate leading off the bottom of the first, another rousing cheer when he led off the third.
