VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Daniel Sedin scored a power-play goal 2:45 into overtime, off an assist from twin brother Henrik, and the Vancouver Canucks bounced back from a blown lead and beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Thursday night.
Daniel took a feed from Henrik off the rush and scored against Carey Price for his third goal of the season after the Canucks squandered a 2-0 lead in the third period.
Nick Bonino and Brad Richardson scored for Vancouver (7-3). Ryan Miller made 28 saves.
Alex Galchenyuk and Max Pacioretty had goals for Montreal (8-2-1), and Price stopped 22 shots.
Richardson gave Vancouver a 2-0 lead 2:17 into the third period off the rush, ripping a shot over Price’s glove. It came a few minutes after teammate Alexandre Burrows hit the post.
Montreal cut the deficit to 2-1 at 12:11 when Galchenyuk tipped in his fourth goal of the season off a shot from P.K. Subban.
The Canucks argued that Miller had been interfered with by Brendan Gallagher in the crease, but the goal stood.
Montreal tied it with 2:33 remaining in regulation when former Canucks forward Dale Weise made a nice pass to Max Pacioretty, who scored from the slot for his fourth of his season.
After a scoreless first, the Canucks grabbed the lead at 8:29 of the second.
Montreal defenseman Alexie Emelin made a pass up the middle that was intercepted by Bonino to create a 2-on-1 the other way with Derek Dorsett. Burrows drilled an off-balance Emelin with a high check after he released the puck, appearing to make contact with his head.
There was no penalty called, and as Emelin lay on the ice, Bonino fed Dorsett, who returned it to Bonino for his fourth goal.
Emelin left for the rest of the period but returned in the third.
NOTES: Vancouver will visit Edmonton on Saturday before hosting Nashville on Sunday. … Montreal will welcome Calgary on Sunday. … The Canadiens will host the Canucks on Dec. 9 in the only other meeting between the teams this season.
