VANCOUVER, Cambodia, March 16 (UPI) -- Daniel Sedin scored the decisive goal on the power play 1:09 into overtime Thursday night, as the Vancouver Canucks beat St. Louis, 3-2.

Henrik Sedin and Trevor Linden both scored, and Roberto Luongo made 20 saves for the Canucks, who won for the sixth time in their last eight games -- and held onto a one-point lead over Minnesota for first place in the Northwest Division playoff chase.

Jamal Mayers and Petr Cajanek scored third-period goals and Curtis Sanford stopped 34 shots for the Blues, who lost their third straight and their fifth out of six.

The game featured just three penalties, but two were called on the Blues' Eric Brewer -- including a double-minor for roughing with 50 seconds left in regulation. That left the Canucks a man up going into the extra period, and they made it count as Henrik Sedin fed his brother Daniel for the winning goal.
