VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 27 (UPI) -- Alexandre Burrows' unassisted goal in overtime gave the Vancouver Canucks a 2-1 victory over Chicago in Game 7 of their Western Conference playoff series.

The goal was the second of the night for Burrows. His goal at 2:43 of the first period stood up until 1:56 remained in regulation. Chicago's Jonathan Toews scored a short-handed goal that tied the score 1-1.

Crawford finished with 36 saves. Vancouver's Roberto Luongo had 31 saves.
