TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Mason Raymond scored the lone goal in the shootout on a spinning backhander and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-4 on Tuesday night. Canucks goalie Cory Schneider stopped all three shots he faced during the shootout, including one by NHL goals leader Steven Stamkos on Tampa Bay's final opportunity. The Lightning tied it at 4 with a minute remaining in the third period when Ryan Malone scored from near the post off a nifty pass by Martin St. Louis. The goal was upheld after a video review. Alexander Edler, Jannik Hansen, Manny Malhotra and Ryan Kesler scored in regulation for Vancouver. Henrik Sedin had an assist, giving him 39 assists and 50 points this season. The Canucks, who held a 4-2 lead after 40 minutes, are 21-0-0 when leading going into the third period. Tampa Bay is 5-17-2 when trailing after the second. Stamkos scored his 29th goal of the season and added an assist. Vincent Lecavalier and Steve Downie had the other Tampa Bay goals. Stamkos was shaken up late in the second after colliding with Edler, but played during the third. Downie got the Lightning within 4-3 at 6:14 of the third. Edler stopped his nine-game goal drought and put the Canucks ahead 1-0 at 2:36 of the first. Hansen made it 2-0 when he beat Dwayne Roloson for a short-handed goal from the low left circle 8:16 into the game. After Stamkos scored from in-close at 10:12 of the second, Malhotra gave the Canucks a 3-1 lead just 2:15 later. The teams also traded goals in the final minute of the second, with Lecavalier scoring on a rebound with 31.6 seconds left after Schneider made a save on Stamkos during a breakaway. Kesler re-established the two-goal advantage with 1.4 seconds to go. NOTES: Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman missed his sixth consecutive game due to concussion-like symptoms and remains out indefinitely. ... Canucks LW David Booth (knee) is skating and could be nearing a return. ... Tampa Bay RW Adam Hall, hurt in last Thursday's game against Ottawa, could be sidelined up to eight weeks because of a torn forearm muscle. ... Vancouver D Mike Duco assisted on Malhotra's goal for his first NHL point.
