ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sami Salo scored with less than a second left in overtime to give the Vancouver Canucks a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

Markus Naslund of the Canucks tied the game with a power-play goal with 25 seconds left in regulation.

The clock showed 0:00 after Salo scored and the Blues refused to leave the ice for about two minutes. The referees reviewed the goal, determining it came before time expired.

The Canucks took 39 shots against Curtis Sanford, who stopped the first 26 he faced in his second start of the season. Vancouver outshot St. Louis 39-19 overall and 6-3 in the overtime.

Both teams had two power-play goals, although the Canucks struggled for most of the game with an extra man. They failed on seven chances through the first two periods before Taylor Pyatt notched his third goal of the season about nine minutes into the third and then Naslund scored the tying goal.

St. Louis, which had nine power-play opportunities against the Canucks, came into the game ranked 22nd with a man advantage, scoring four goals in 32 attempts in its first six games.
