VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Henrik Sedin scored 1:40 into overtime after Bo Horvat tied it late in the third period, lifting the Vancouver Canucks over the St. Louis Blues 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Horvat scored with 2:55 left in regulation, helping Vancouver to its third consecutive comeback win to start the season. Jacob Markstrom made 23 saves.
Vladimir Tarasenko scored in the second period for St. Louis, and Jake Allen had 24 stops.
The winner came after Markstrom made a nice glove save in the extra period and played the puck to keep the play moving. Christopher Tanev worked a nice give-and-go with Daniel Sedin, and then Tanev took a light shot that Henrik Sedin re-directed in for his first of the season.
