Vancouver, BC, Canada (4E Sports) - Daniel Sedin blasted the puck past goalie Carey Price at 2:45 of overtime as the Vancouver Canucks edged the Montreal Canadiens, 3-2 Thursday at Rogers Arena.
The goal came after Daniel took a pass from twin Henrik in a power play.
The 34-year-old Daniel was the league's ninth-most prolific goal scorer in six seasons from 2006-07 through 2011-12 with 196 goals.
He booked 41 goals in 2010-11, en route to the league scoring title.
But Daniel's shooting percentage went down to a career-worst 7.1 per cent last season.
From 2005-06 to today, Daniel ranks No. 7 in assists with 417, while Henrik is second, with 554, behind Joe Thornton's 599.
As of Tuesday morning Daniel has once again cracked the NHL top 10 in scoring with nine assists and two goals for 11 points.
After a goalless first, Nick Bonino put the Canucks up at 8:29 of the second after intercepting defenseman Alexie Emelin to create a 2-on-1 the other way with Derek Dorsett.
Brad Richardson made it a 2-0 lead for the Canucks at 2:17 of the third.
The Canadiens answered with Alex Galchenyuk tipping in a shot from P.K. Subban at 12:11 and Max Pacioretty bringing home the puck from a Dale Weise pass to tie the game at 17:27.
Ryan Miller made 23 saves for the Canucks while Carey Price stopped 27 shots for the Canadiens.
