Mitchell took advantage of traffic in front of the net midway through the first period. He slapped the puck into the upper right corner from just inside the blue line.
Daniel led the Canucks with 31 goals last season while Henrick was the team leader with 60 assists. They tied for the team lead with 82 points each.
