Alexandre Burrows scored in the first round of the shootout and Jacob Markstrom made 27 saves to help the Vancouver Canucks beat the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 on Friday night.

Burrows whipped a shot past Frederik Anderson to start the shootout, and then Markstrom stopped Ryan Kesler, Jakob Silfverberg and Corey Perry to end Anaheim's three-game win streak.

Christopher Tanev tied it with 9:36 left on a wrist shot from the blue line that slipped through traffic and past Anderson. Tanev had missed the previous two games with a foot injury.

Kesler, a former Canuck, put Anaheim ahead 7:24 into the second period on a power play. Kesler was checked down by Matt Bartkowski while taking in a feed from Chris Stewart atop the crease but still tipped the puck in past Markstrom.

The Canucks won for the first time this season when trailing after two periods.
