Canucks cool Jets to stay in hunt for top spot

The Vancouver Canucks scored twice in the third period to overcome the visiting Winnipeg Jets 3-2 and stay in the hunt for top spot in the Western Conference on Thursday.

Trailing 2-1 in the final period, Alexander Edler tied the game before Samuel Pahlsson scored the winner with a slap shot as the Canucks rebounded from back-to-back losses.

Vancouver (42-18-8) remained a point behind conference-leading St. Louis, while Winnipeg (32-28-8) dropped into ninth place, tied on points with Washington in eighth, in the East.
