Nick Bonino and Radim Vrbata scored in the shootout, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Predators 5-4 Tuesday night to avoid being swept by Nashville.

The Canucks padded their lead to four points over Calgary to stay in second place in the Pacific Division with their second win in two nights. They did it by killing off a five-minute major penalty that carried into overtime.

Eddie Lack stopped all four Nashville shots in overtime, then turned away attempts by Mike Santorelli and Filip Forsberg in the shootout.

Alexandre Burrows had a goal and an assist for Vancouver. Chris Higgins, Linden Vey and Jannik Hansen scored a goal each, and Bonino had two assists.

Mike Fisher, Cody Franson, Taylor Beck and Viktor Stalberg scored for Nashville, which lost its second straight at home.
