VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Jordan Schroeder scored in a shootout to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.
Schroeder, who hasn’t scored a traditional goal in the regular season, fired a low, hard shot that squeaked through the pads of goalie Corey Crawford.
Alex Edler scored in regulation for the Canucks (4-2-2).
Patrick Kane had the lone goal for the Blackhawks, who lost their second straight in a shootout after starting the season with six victories.
Chicago controlled overtime, outshooting Vancouver 4-1. The Blackhawks were also awarded a power play with 1:11 left when Vancouver defenseman Jason Garrison was called for high-sticking. Chicago, which outshot Vancouver 28-22, was 0 for 5 on the power play.
The Canucks had a 40-second, 5-on-3 power play in the third period, but didn’t register a shot on goal.
