VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 1 (UPI) -- Matt Halischuk scored in the second overtime period Saturday, lifting Nashville to a 2-1 win over Vancouver and evening their conference semifinal series.

Halischuk raced down the right side after the Predators won a neutral zone face-off, collected a pass from Nick Spalling and fired a wrist shot from the circle that beat Roberto Luongo 14:51 into the second extra period.

Ryan Suter forced the overtimes with only 1:07 remaining in regulation when his soft shot from the corner dribbled past Luongo as Nashville rebounded from a 1-0 loss in Game 1.

Pekka Rinne was spectacular in net for Nashville, making several acrobatic saves in overtime while turning aside 32-of-33 shots.

Alexandre Burrows got the Canucks' only goal 2 minutes into the contest.

Luongo finished with 44 saves for Vancouver, which will try to regain the momentum when the series switches to Nashville for Tuesday's Game 3.
