Canucks defenseman drops Blues in shootout
Vancouver emerged with a 4-3 victory.
ST. LOUIS -- The Sedin twins carried the Vancouver Canucks' offense in regulation. A low-scoring rookie defenseman brought them home -- again.
Daniel and Henrik Sedin combined for five points, and Alex Edler decided a shootout for the second time in four games in the Vancouver Canucks' 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night.
"I really want to shoot, but I know a defenseman doesn't get that many chances," said the 21-year-old Edler, a second-round pick in 2004. "But I scored the other night and I got the chance again."
Edler, who has two goals and 10 points in 38 games, was the Canucks' second shooter and beat Manny Legace between the pads. He netted the winner in a victory over the Islanders on Tuesday when he scored in the sixth round, and is 2-for-2 in shootout chances.
"I had no idea what he was going to do," Legace said. "I shouldn't have tried to fake a poke check, and as soon as I did it he shot it through my legs."
Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo stopped Brad Boyes, Paul Kariya and Andy McDonald in the shootout.
Daniel Sedin had a goal and two assists, and twin brother Henrik had a goal and an assist for the Canucks, who rebounded from consecutive losses and snapped a three-game road losing streak. Vancouver entered the night in a three-way tie for first place in the Northwest Division.
Low-scoring defenseman Christian Backman had a goal and an assist, and Kariya had two assists for the Blues, who were 2-2 during a stretch of four games in six days.
