VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Todd Bertuzzi's second goal of the game with 8:03 left gave the Vancouver Canucks a 5-3 exhibition victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.

Jarkko Ruutu, Henrik Sedin and Jason King, who had an empty-netter, also scored as the Canucks (3-3-0) snapped a three-game losing streak

Johan Hedberg stopped 20 shots in his first start for Vancouver since being acquired from Pittsburgh in an offseason trade. Hedberg hadn't played since he was cut above his right knee by a skate and needed nine stitches 11 days ago.

Matthew Lombardi, Robert Dome and Martin Gelinas scored for the Flames (3-1-1), who lost despite outshooting the Canucks 23-12. It was the fourth straight game Vancouver failed to record 20 shots.

Lombardi opened the scoring 5:39 into the first, but Bertuzzi tied it on the power play just over a minute later.

Ruutu banged in a power play rebound midway through the first period and Sedin tipped in Ed Jovanovski's point shot just 25 seconds into the second.

Dome scored from close range at 6:04, and Gelinas tied it 11:55.
