Bo Horvat scored the go-ahead goal off a lucky bounce in the third period, helping the Vancouver Canucks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 on Friday night.

Horvat scored on a power play after the puck caromed off Loui Eriksson at the Tampa Bay blue line and skipped to surprised goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. It bounced off the netminder and right to Horvat, who buried his ninth goal of the season 7:46 into the final period.

Ryan Miller had 25 saves and Brandon Sutter, Luca Sbisa and Alexandre Burrows also scored for Vancouver. Eriksson and Markus Granlund added two assists.

Victor Hedman and Cory Conacher scored for Tampa Bay, which is 2-7-1 over its last 10.

Vasilevskiy made 20 stops.
