VIDEO: Roberto Luongo grabs 65th career shutout; Vancouver floors Edmonton in 4-0 win

Roberto Luongo grabbed his third shutout of the season and the Vancouver Canucks stomped out whatever flame the Edmonton Oilers had burning on Friday night, winning 4-0 and rather convincingly at Rogers Arena.

Daniel Sedin opened the scoring for the Canucks, who had 40 shots in the win, and Vancouver also had goals from Zack Kassian, Chris Higgins, and Dale Weise.

Luongo stopped 19 shots for his 65th career shutout, which puts him just one back of Hall of Famer Patrick Roy, the current coach of the Colorado Avalanche, for 14th on the NHL's all time list.
