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, setting up Vancouver to move to 3-0-0. 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 and played the puck to keep the action moving. Sedin worked a nice give-and-go with Daniel Sedin, then shot off the post and in for his first of the season.
