NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Vancouver Canucks keep finding ways to win no matter how long it takes.
Alex Edler scored in the sixth round of a shootout, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators 4-3 Tuesday night for their fifth win in six games.
The Canucks improved to 2-1 in the season series against the team they ousted in the Western Conference semifinals last season where they won all three games in Nashville including the series-clinching sixth game. They did it by playing beyond regulation for a fifth straight game and the eighth in 10 games.
"We're obviously not a team that gives up, and we expected a close game with these guys," Canucks center Ryan Kesler said. "We've been in a lot of overtime games and shootout games lately, so we're accustomed to this now. And we're getting on the right end of these so we're doing something right."
Edler beat Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne through his pads with a shot he wasn't sure would work.
