Chris Higgins had a goal and assist in Vancouver's 5-2 win over Buffalo on Friday.

Higgins' goal was a classic one-timer from the dot, making it 4-2 in the third period. But it was his helper on Yannick Weber's goal just 1:43 into the second that was gorgeous. Higgins was trapped between a back-checking Matt Ellis and defending Tyler Myers below the left hashmark, and had to wait for Myers to move his stick out of the passing lane before dishing it to a charging Weber down the right slot. The goal made it 2-1 and was a true display of awareness and patience. Canucks. Higgins is now sixth on the team in scoring with seven goals and 20 points this season.
