ST. LOUIS, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Daniel Sedin sailed a slap shot past Brian Elliott 46 seconds into overtime Thursday, giving the Vancouver Canucks a 3-2 victory over St. Louis.

The Canucks won for the fourth time in five games and ended the Blues' four-game winning streak.

All the scoring during the regulation 60 minutes was produced by Vancouver's Alexandre Burrows and St. Louis' Jason Arnott.

Burrows opened the scoring 2:48 into the game and his tip-in with 2:08 left in the second forged a 2-2 tie. He has 18 goals for the season.

Arnott tallied 62 seconds after Burrows' first goal and then gave St. Louis a 2-1 lead 6:27 into the middle period.

Roberto Luongo made 31 saves for the Canucks. Elliott allowed the three goals on 21 shots.
