Chris Tanev scored at 4:40 of overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks rallied for their season-high third straight victory, 3-2 over the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Monday night.

With just 2:17 remaining in regulation, and the Oilers holding a 2-1 lead, the Canucks tied it with a long shot from Kevin Bieksa that beat goalie Devan Dubnyk stick-side and forced overtime.

Taylor Hall was awarded a penalty shot for the Oilers with 2:47 gone in OT, after he was hooked down by Daniel Sedin on a breakaway, but Hall was stopped by Roberto Luongo, who finished with 23 saves.

Jannik Hansen also scored in regulation for the Canucks (5-2-2), who extended their lead atop the Northwest Division.

Ales Hemsky and Ryan Smyth had goals for the Oilers (4-3-2), who have lost three in a row. Dubnyk stopped 37 shots.
