Vancouver (6-9-1=13 pts) played the first game of a 4 game homestand this afternoon at Rogers Arena against the Dallas Stars (6-6-4=16 pts), defeating Dallas 5-4 in overtime, coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the third period.

The Canucks snapped their three game winless streak at home; avenged their loss to the Red Wings, and ended the Stars 10 game win streak against them, all against the visitors.

Markus Granlund, with his 4th goal of the season in the overtime, was the hero, with the decisive winning goal of the game; and picked up an assist as well, for a two point game.

Brandon Sutter, Alex Burrows and Bo Horvat, with two points each; Troy Stecher with his first NHL goal; and Loui Eriksson, his second goal in the last three games, led the Canucks.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin extended their point streaks with assists in the game. Sven Baertschi had his 4th assist of the season.

Vancouver is now 5-3-0 at home, with three games left on their current homestand.

Canucks starting goalie Ryan Miller, stopped 17 of 21 shots in the game, his second win of the season.

Miller, after tonight, is 2-7-0 with a 2.92 GAA and a .899 save percentage.

Canucks, are all alone in 5th place in the Pacific division with 13 points; 4 points behind Anaheim in 3rd place;  2 points ahead of the Calgary Flames; 3 points in front of last place Arizona, who have two games in hand.

Game Summary

In the first, the Stars would get the opening goal of the game, to make it 1-0. Patrick Eaves (5), from Dan Hamhuis (5), at 5:43.

Twenty-two second later, Bo Horvat would tie the game at 1-1, with his 5th goal of the season, with assists to Alex Burrows (1) and Sven Baertschi (4), at 6:02.

Before Canuck fans could stop with the high-fives, Dallas would take the lead in the game back, at 2-1, as Lauri Korpikoski (4), twenty seconds later scored, assisted by Radek Faksa (4), at 6:25.

In the second, Patrick Eaves (6), would give Dallas a two goal lead at 3-1, his second goal of the game, at 15:04, assisted by Tyler Seguin (12) and Antoine Roussel (7). Seguin with his second assist of the game.

In the third, the Canucks were once again having to reach into their hat and pull out a miracle, and somehow perform a comeback.

And comeback they would.

Markus Granlund, with his second helper of the season, would set up Loui Eriksson (2), to pull Vancouver within one of the Stars, at 3-2, with his second goal in the last 3 games, at 3:26.

With Vancouver on the power play, Brandon Sutter would score a rare power play goal for the Canucks, his second goal of the year, tying up the game at 3-3, at 6:06; assisted by Daniel Sedin (4) and Henrik Sedin (5).

The assists by the Sedin’s would continue their points streaks; Daniel 5th straight game with a points; Henrik, three games.

Antoine Roussel, his fourth goal of the season, would put Dallas up by one, 4-3, at 11:19, assisted by Tyler Seguin (13), his third assist of the game.

Sixty-three seconds later, Alex Burrows in a scramble in front of the Dallas net, would score a goal that would undergo review for interference on Kari Lehtonen by Burrows. The review determined it was not a goal, due to interference. And Dallas would continue to lead by a goal, 4-3.

Rookie Troy Stecher, would score a great goal, his first NHL goal, to even the game at 4-4 at 18:20, assisted by Alex Burrrows (2) and Bo Horvat (4), with Ryan Miller pulled and the Canuck net empty.
