Vancouver (11-12-2=24 pts) played the final game of a three game homestand tonight at Rogers Arena against Eastern conference rivals, Toronto Maple Leafs (10-9-5=25 pts).

The Maple Leafs came back in regulation with two unanswered goals against Vancouver to tie the game at 2-2, and forced overtime against the Canucks.

Toronto though were unable to win in the overtime, and Vancouver edged the Maple Leafs, for a 3-2 SO victory, with Bo Horvat and Ryan Miller the heroes in the shoot out: Horvat with the key goal and Miller the key saves.

Daniel Sedin scored his 7th goal of the season in the first period to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead; Sven Baertschi with his 3rd goal in his last 4 games, and 4th of the season, made it 2-0 in the second period.

Henrik Sedin picked up his 10th assist; Alex Burrows and Luca Sbisa, their 6th assists; and Nikita Tryamkin, his first helper of the season.

Ryan Miller stopped 38 of 40 shots.

Canucks, continue to be in 6th place in the Pacific division; 4 points in front of Arizona.

Game Summary

In the first, Daniel Sedin scored his 7th goal of the season, assisted by Luca Sbisa (6) and Henrik Sedin (10), at 13:03, to give the Canucks a 1-0 lead.

  • Canucks had 15 hits in the opening period
  • Bo Horvat had 3 shots and Sven Baertschi 2 shots, as Vancouver out shot Toronto 9-7.
  • Canucks defensemen had only 2 shots make it to Andersen, none by Troy Stecher, which would have to change. Canucks are 4-4-1 when he has 2 shots or more in a game.

In the second, Sven Baertschi would continue his offensive magic, scoring his 4th goal of the season, his 3rd goal in his last 4 games; assisted by Alex Burrows (6th, all in the last 10 games) and Nikita Tryamkin (1), at 2:37.

The Maple Leafs would get on the score sheet, 14 seconds into their second power play of the game, to pull within a goal at 2-1, at 11:30. James van Riemsdyk (11 ), assisted by  Tyler Bozak (12) and Morgan Rielly (12).

  • Troy Stecher a +1 after two periods, had 1 shot, 1 shot attempt blocked, 1 hit and 1 blocked shot, in 13:05. Not very auspicious.
  • Canuck defensemen had 6 registered shots on net after two periods.

In the third, Toronto made their comeback complete, evening the game up at 2-2, on a goal by Austin Matthews (11), at 1:56, assisted by Zach Hyman (5) and Martin Marincin (4).

The game would end 2-2 in regulation and overtime would not settle the issue either.

In the shoot out the Canucks would get goals from Markus Granlund and Bo Horvat; and Bo Horvat’s shoot out goal would be the difference, as Vancouver wins 3-2.

  • Bo Horvat finished with a personal best 24 faceoff wins
