Vancouver Canucks: Overtime success to see off Blackhawks

The Vancouver Canucks handed the Chicago Blackhawks a second successive shootout loss, taking their home NHL clash 2-1 on Friday.

Chicago opened the season with a franchise record 6-0 start but after falling to Minnesota on Wednesday via a shootout they were sent home packing in similar circumstances by the Canucks.

Tied 1-1 after regulation and unable to be separated after overtime, Jordan Schroeder emerged as the home side hero, sliding the puck past Corey Crawford after each side's first three shooters were unable to connect.

Vancouver goaltender Roberto Luongo stood out with 28 saves despite still expecting to be traded away from the side should the right deal come along.

Chicago remain top of the Western Conference Central Division at 6-0-2 while Vancouver took control of the Northwest Division at 4-2-2
