Canucks slip past Devils 3-2 in OT

 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Jason Garrison scored at 2:18 of overtime and the Vancouver Canucks defeated the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Tuesday.

Garrison’s shot from the point through traffic beat Cory Schneider in the goaltender’s first game against his former team.

Daniel Sedin, with a goal and an assist, and Alexander Edler scored for Vancouver (3-1-0), which got 21 saves from Roberto Luongo.

Jaromir Jagr and Patrik Elias each had a goal and an assist for New Jersey (0-1-3), which was playing its second game in as many nights.
