Canucks Rebound for OT Win over Red Wings

Daniel Sedin scored with 2:25 remaining in regulation and Sami Salo added a power play goal at 2:33 of overtime, leading the Vancouver Canucks to a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over the visiting Detroit Red Wings.

Curtis Sanford, starting in the Vancouver crease in place of the injured Roberto Luongo, stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced.

Salo fired a one-timer from the left faceoff circle past Detroit netminder Chris Osgood to give the Canucks the win while Johan Franzen was in the penalty box for interference.

Sedin's goal came just 1:10 after the Red Wings had taken a 2-1 lead. He deflected a shot by Salo out of mid-air and off the ice, bouncing it past Osgood.

Pavel Datsyuk had scored a power play goal with 3:35 remaining, snapping a shot from the right circle past Sanford on a Red Wings power play.

Mikael Samuelsson scored the game's opening goal 9:22 into the first period. Andreas Lilja fed Samuelsson to spring him into the Vancouver zone where he lifted a backhander over Sanford's shoulder.

Taylor Pyatt scored Vancouver's first goal at 2:27 of the second period, stripping the puck from Jiri Hudler in the Red Wings' zone and beating Osgood from the slot.

Osgood made 21 saves on 24 shots.

Both teams went one-for-three on the power play.

The loss ends the Red Wings' Western Canada road trip, on which they earned five of a possible six points. They now return to Joe Louis Arena to face the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

It blows that we can't pull up another offensive powerhouse for the time being. I'd love to see Helm or Abdelkadder out there right now.

I was all set to complain about the Wings being outplayed early and then Sammy goes and puts one in over Sanford's shoulder. Feel a little better now.

Holy lord; great saves by Osgood! <img src="" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.png" />

If it wasn't for him tonight man, I dunno what I'd be thinking.

And, I kinda hate to admit it, but I think I'm a closet Sedin Twins fan :'D

Wings looked absolutely awful for the final few minutes of the period there, that insane save by Osgood shouldn't have been neccessary. Glad to see that he's on his game, though.

No surprise there, Wings giveaway bites them in the ass again.

Daniels needs to stop talking about the Sedins being at 399, he's gonna jinx things.

Great save by Sanford on the Detroit PP. Hope that's the last one.

After two... A little infuriating. Feels like the Wings are starting to make stupid mistakes again.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/24/2008 at 11:33 PM


Power play with about 5:00 left. Have to do something here.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/25/2008 at 12:17 AM


Pavs with the PPG! Wings in front!

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/25/2008 at 12:20 AM


Ozzie with another big stop to preserve the lead.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/25/2008 at 12:22 AM


Damnit. Daniel Sedin. Told you Daniels would jinx it.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/25/2008 at 12:22 AM


Going to OT. Another damned late game going to OT.

Um... At least we get a point? Ugh.

Posted by YzerFan19 on 11/25/2008 at 12:27 AM


Could see that coming.

f*ck it, whatever.

Had a very early start yesterday so I fell asleep at the second intermission. I will say that I was not happy when I woke up and saw the review of the game! Oh well 5-0-1 for a western Canada trip is not mad.

On another note: Hossa+Dr Fil+ Dats= MVP line!
