Santorelli helps Canucks edge Flames in OT

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Mike Santorelli scored his second goal at 3:17 in overtime to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-4 win over the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

The Canucks scored three straight goals in the third period to lead 4-3, but with Flames goaltender Joey MacDonald on the bench for a sixth attacker David Jones sent the game into extra time with 19 seconds remaining in regulation.

Dale Weise, Jannik Hansen and Santorelli scored in the third after the Canucks fell behind 3-1 early in the period. Canucks backup goaltender Eddie Lack made 32 saves in his first regular-season NHL game and David Booth scored for Vancouver in the first period.

Mikael Backlund, Sean Monahan and Calgary captain Mark Giordano also scored for the Flames and Joey MacDonald stopped 23 shots.
