SAN JOSE, Calif., March 10 (UPI) -- Henrik Sedin scored at 1:30 left in overtime Friday night as Vancouver topped the San Jose Sharks, 2-1.

He scored his game-winner when the puck caromed way from San Jose goaltender Evgeni Nabokov.

In regulation, Vancouver's Taylor Pyatt and San Jose's Patrick Marleau exchanged goals in the third period after the teams went scoreless in the first two periods.

Roberto Luongo made 25 saves on 26 shots to record his 39th win of the season, setting a new franchise record for victories in a season for the Canucks, who have a five-game winning streak.

Nabokov made 35 saves on 37 shots for the Sharks, who had won their previous two games.

Marleau scored the game's lone power play goal.

The Canucks remained in the third spot in the Western Conference and have a four-point lead over Minnesota in the Northwest Division.
