Canucks edge Coyotes in lengthy shootout

Ryan Kesler scored the game-winning goal in 1, at Rogers Arena.

Kesler moved in slowly and fired a quick wrist shot low to the stick side of Coyotes netminder Jason LaBarbera. Roberto Luongo stopped Boyd Gordon in Phoenix's final attempt to seal the victory.

Kesler added an assist and David Booth scored in regulation for the Canucks, who bounced back nicely from a 3-2 shootout loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday and have won four of their last five games. Luongo finished with 23 saves in the win.

Keith Yandle scored and LaBarbera had 21 saves in defeat for the Coyotes, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.
