Sami Salo scored with less than a second remaining in overtime to lead the Canucks past the Blues Friday night. The referees quickly skated off the ice after the goal was scored, but St. Louis refused to leave their bench. The officials returned and reviewed Salo’s goal, determining it did cross the line with time left on the clock.
Markus Nasland’s power-play goal with 26 seconds left in the third period sent the game in overtime. With the exception of Vancouver’s game-winner, all goals in the game were scored with a man advantage.
St. Louis jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on Petr Cajanek’s first goal of the season. Lee Stempniak later knocked home his third tally of the year to give the Note a big 2-0 advantage midway through the third period, but Vancouver’s Taylor Pyatt notched a power-play goal of his own shortly thereafter to cut the lead to one.
