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 Canucks will face Nashville in the second round while the Blackhawks will not be around to defend their Stanley Cup championship.

Burrows grabbed a turnover in the Blackhawks zone and ripped a slap shot from the right circle that beat Chicago goaltender Corey Crawford at 5:22 of the OT period.

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.
