VANCOUVER -- Mike Santorelli continued his rise from the NHLs scrap heap with a flourish Sunday night. Santorelli, who was signed as free agent by Vancouver in the off-season after being cast adrift by three other NHL clubs, scored two goals and added an assist as the Canucks beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-1. "It feels nice to, for sure, a lot of us have been sniffing around (the net) and our line played great tonight," said Santorelli. The 27-year-old Vancouver native was drafted by the Nashville Predators in the sixth round (178th overall) in 2004, but spent much of his four seasons with them in the minors and failed to stick with Florida and Winnipeg while also playing briefly in Sweden during the NHL lockout last season. But Santorelli, who joined Vancouver on a two-way contract, now has eight goals on the season, easily surpassing the two he produced with Florida last season while splitting the campaign with the Panthers and Jets. And, he is just one shy of the nine goals that he had in 60 games with Florida in 2011-12. "He was our best player by far tonight in all areas," said Canucks coach John Tortorella. The Canucks (17-10-5) posted their fifth win in sixth games and moved within a point of the upstart Avs (20-8-0) in the tight Western Conference standings. "I honestly felt we played a better game than them and, unfortunately, we have nothing to show for the result," said Colorado coach Patrick Roy. "But, I mean, Luongo was good. Both goalies were good, actually." Ryan Kesler also scored for the Canucks, who were outshot 29-21 by the Avalanche. Jamie McGinn replied for Colorado with only 7.1 seconds left in the game. As a result, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo was denied the 65th shutout of his career and a chance to move within one of tying Roy, who ranks 14th all-time in NHL history. "If you ask me about the goal I am going to snap," Luongo said with a laugh. "Its all right, that stuff happens. Well take the two points and move on." The Canucks goaltender improved his record on the season to 14-8-5. Colorado goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere, 36, lost for the first time in eight decisions this season. The Avs suffered only their third loss in the past nine games. Gigueres 7-0-0 start to the season was a career best as well as a Colorado franchise goaltending record. "I didnt think we played terribly bad," said Giguere. "But I dont think it was our best effort, either. I dont think it was, overall, a great effort by either team. It was kind of a grind-it-out type of game, and they got the two goals in the third. We just couldnt recover from that." The Canucks, criticized by Tortorella following Fridays overtime win over Phoenix for an ongoing inability to finish out wins, broke open a tight game with two goals in the third period. Kesler put the Canucks ahead 2-0 at 1:32 of the second period as he tucked in Santorellis rebound while standing alone beside the net. The goal was Keslers fifth goal in his past four games and 15th in 32 total games this season, putting him just seven shy of the 22 he mustered in 77 contests in 2011-12. He has already surpassed the measly four he scored in an injury-plagued and lockout-shortened 2013 campaign. About five minutes later, Santorelli beat Giguere with a high shot while using linemate Chris Higgins as a decoy on a 2-on-1. Vancouvers third-period onslaught came after Colorados Holden beat Luongo with a high slapper, but hit the crossbar with just over three minutes left in the second. The Canucks second line of Santorelli, Kesler and Higgins, who had two assists, accounted for all of Vancouvers goals. "They are two unbelievable players to play with and its nice playing with two guys like that," said Santorelli. "You learn a lot from them. We are communicating with each other on the bench and letting each other know where we are and things like that, and its been fun." Vancouver was blanked on three power plays, marking the first time in eight games that they have not scored with the man-advantage. Colorado had one power play. Giguere was not perturbed by the end of his unbeaten string. "These are just stats for you (media) guys to talk about," said Giguere. "It was nice, but I try to go in there and compete every day and, unfortunately, losing is part of the game, too. Im just gonna regroup and get ready for the next chance that I get to play." McGinn spoiled Luongos shutout after Roy pulled Giguere in favour of an extra attacker for most of the last five minutes. "We pulled the goalie with five minutes left in the game for us as coaches to show our players that we (dont) quit," said Roy. Luongo joked that Roy pulled his goalie early to prevent him from getting close to the Hall of Famers shutout total. "Theres no danger there," said Roy. "Hell pass me there, for sure." Luongo wont have to wait long for another chance to tie Roy. The Canucks host Carolina on Monday while Colorado heads home to meet Phoenix on Tuesday. Notes: The Canucks recalled defenceman Yannick Weber from Utica of the AHL earlier Sunday. He adds further depth following Alex Edlers undisclosed injury and coach John Tortorellas comment that Andrew Alberts play "scares" him. Edler sat out his second consecutive game. This season marks the first since the former Quebec Nordiques franchise relocated to Colorado that the Avs and Canucks are not competing in the same division.

He made another correct read. The Browns, who have been shuttling quarterbacks on and off the field all season, finally got some good news on that front: Campbells ribs are only bruised.MILWAUKEE -- Mike Fiers finished eight brilliant innings with a strikeout, pumping his arms as he walked off the mound to a standing ovation. The right-handers first major league start in more than a year for the Milwaukee Brewers couldnt have gone any better than the gem he threw in a 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night. Fiers (1-1) struck out five, while filling in for injured Matt Garza, and Khris Davis and Carlos Gomez homered to give Milwaukee a second straight win in the three-game series between NL divisional leaders. This outing might mean even more to Fiers, whose 2013 season ended in June in the minors when a line drive broke his right forearm. "Its unbelievable," Fiers said about coming off the mound in the eighth to rousing applause. "Its what you dream of as a kid, especially those situations -- close game, eighth inning trying to get to the best closer in the league." Francisco Rodriguez provided some ninth-inning drama after allowing the tying run to come to the plate with two outs, but he got Matt Kemp to ground out for his 35th save. The Dodgers mustered only a solo homer by Adrian Gonzalez, his 17th of the season, into the second deck in right field. "He had a rough year last year," manager Ron Roeneicke said about Fiers. "Its always nice when a guy goes through quite a bit of adversity but bounces back, gets up here and has a game like that." Fiers outdueled former Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke (12-8), who gave up Gomezs homer off the left-field foul pole that made it 3-1 leading off the sixth. The right-handed Fiers caught the Dodgers chasing 90-mph fastballs high and away early in the game for strikeouts. Besides Gonzalezs homer in the fourth, the only other hits allowed by Fiers were singles by Dee Gordon and Kemp. In his previous start for Milwaukee, Fiers gave up seven runs in 1 2/3 innings on June 2, 2013, against the Phillies. He broke his arm nearly two weeks later in Triple-A. Fiers made 22 starts in the maajors in 2012, including a victory over the Dodgers in Los Angeles in winning his first big league start.dddddddddddd After a tough 2013, Fiers was 8-5 with a 2.55 ERA in 17 starts in Nashville, and made four relief appearances this June with the Brewers. "It wasnt like hes a total mystery," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "He didnt seem too afraid of us." Fiers induced 12 groundball outs Saturday and had the Dodgers walking back to the dugout in frustration. Los Angeles shortstop Miguel Rojas slammed his bat into the ground after a called third strike in the third. GETTING TO GREINKE The right-handed Greinke pitched for the Brewers in 2011 and part of 2012 before going to the Angels in a deal that sent shortstop Jean Segura to Milwaukee. Now with the Dodgers, Greinke took his second straight loss at Miller Park after winning his first 15 decisions there. Davis hit a two-run shot for his 19th homer of the season in the second off a 1-2 pitch that Greinke liked when it left his hand. "He just set a surprise on me" and catcher A.J. Ellis, Greinke said "There were plenty of mistakes throughout the game besides that one. That was upsetting because it was exactly what I wanted to do." TRAINERS ROOM DODGERS: Shortstop Hanley Ramirez had an MRI Saturday after leaving Friday nights game with soreness in his right rib cage muscle, though Mattingly didnt have the results before the game. Mattingly said he thought Ramirez might have an "oblique-type" injury. BREWERS: Garza, who went on the disabled list Tuesday with a strained left rib cage muscle, hasnt started throwing yet but is doing exercises. Roenicke said he thought Garza might need more than the minimum 15 days to recover. UP NEXT DODGERS: Ace Clayton Kershaw (13-2) will try to help the Dodgers avoid a three-game sweep. The left-hander hasnt lost since May 28, going 10-0 in his last 12 starts. BREWERS: Right-hander Jimmy Nelson (2-2) will try to extend his streak of three straight quality starts.
