VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Dakota Joshua and Sheldon Dries scored 34 seconds apart in the third period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 to give Rick Tocchet a victory in his first game as coach. Tocchet was named the 21st head coach in Canucks history Sunday after Bruce Boudreau was fired along with assistant Trent Cull. Vancouver outshot the Blackhawks 48-14 and fought back from a pair of one-goal deficits but failed to score on five power-play chances. Andrei Kuzmenko scored twice for the Canucks, who snapped a three-game skid. Bo Horvat scored shorthanded into an empty net. Patrick Kane and Sam Lafferty scored for the Blackhawks, and Petr Mrazek made 43 saves.
