For the Vancouver Canucks, the solution almost made the problem worthwhile. Almost.
Elite rookie Elias Pettersson rescued a victory for the team by finishing a give-and-go with Brock Boeser at 1:38 of overtime as the Canucks beat the Ottawa Senators 4-3 Wednesday despite blowing a two-goal lead in the final half of the third period.
It gave Pettersson his first NHL hat trick – on the day he was named to the All-Star Game – and the Canucks two points in a game they dominated while building a 3-1 lead.
