Canucks Pull A Rarity In 5-4 OT Win Over Dallas Sunday
Bo Horvat, Brendan Sutter and Troy Stecher each scored a tying goal for the Canucks and Markus Granlund tallied the game-winning goal in overtime when Vancouver beat the Stars, 5–4, on Sunday.
Excluding shootout victories, this was the first time that the Canucks won a game in which they trailed three different times since Dec. 15, 2005, when they edged the Flyers in Philadelphia by a 5–4 score.
Trevor Linden, Nolan Baumgartner and Markus Naslund scored the tying goals for Vancouver in that game 11 years ago.
