Vancouver Canucks left wing Daniel Sedin (22) scores the winning goal past Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford (50) as Luca Sbisa (5)

(VIDEO) Daniel Sedin’s OT winner beats Blackhawks; Canucks 6th in Western Conference

Daniel scored his 13th of the season, working a 4-on-4 cycle with Luca Sbisa and Henrik Sedin after Marian Hossa's last-minute tying goal.



Daniel Sedin’s 13th career regular season overtime winner sunk the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night, keeping Vancouver in the middle of the Western Conference playoff race and serving a loss to the Canucks’ old rival.

Sedin and his brother Henrik played all 1:20 of overtime, surviving early pressure from Jonathan Toews and the Hawks before combining for an offensive zone cycle with Luca Sbisa and Dan Hamhuis. Sbisa kept the puck in at the line when it looked like Marian Hossa might clear it, fed it across to the twins and watched as they did the rest – Henrik to Daniel, as it’s been so many times before, from the corner to the front of the net, and then behind goalie Corey Crawford.

The win moved the Canucks into a tie for sixth in the West with Calgary and San Jose, a three-way jam at 63 points.

Vancouver sits three points behind Winnipeg with three games in-hand, but only a few points clear of Minnesota, Los Angeles, and Dallas.

Chicago scored two third-period goals with three minutes remaining, knotting it up after trailing 4-2, picking up a point to pad their position in fourth in the Conference – third in their Central division.

Marian Hossa scored two goals for the Hawks, including the tying goal with 55 seconds left. Patrick Kane opened the scoring, and Brand Saad had Chicago’s third.

Vancouver got two goals from Daniel. Linden Vey scored his eighth, Bo Horvat his sixth, and Zack Kassian his fifth, all in the second period.

Vancouver’s next game is Friday at home against the Boston Bruins.
