Cats Pick Up Point in Shootout vs. Vancouver

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Josh Green scored in the sixth round of the shootout to give the Vancouver Canucks a 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night.

The win extended Vancouver's season-high winning streak to seven games while the Panthers dropped their third straight on the road.

Green beat Florida netminder Ed Belfour high to the stick side from 20 feet out for the game winner and then had to stand by and watch nervously as Canucks' netminder Roberto Luongo stopped Jozef Stumpel at the other end to preserve the win.

For much of the game it appeared that Luongo was going to steal one from his former club as he held the Panthers at bay for two periods. But the 27-year-old gave up a pair of weak third-period goals to give Florida some hope.

This was the first time Luongo, who faced 36 shots, had faced his former team since coming over to the Canucks in the biggest trade of the summer.

The Canucks' sent troubled winger Todd Bertuzzi, defenseman Bryan Allen and goaltender Alex Auld to Florida in exchange for Luongo and defenseman Lukas Krajicek.

Only Allen was in the lineup for the Panthers on Sunday as Bertuzzi is injured and Auld was backing up starting netminder Ed Belfour.

A resurgent Trevor Linden opened the scoring for Vancouver with just 10 seconds remaining in the first period.

Ville Peltonen tied the game 5 minutes into the second period.

The Panthers were finally rewarded for their hard work early in the third period as they took the lead two minutes in.

Mike Van Ryn stepped in from the point and one-timed a weak shot from the boards that handcuffed Luongo, seemingly going right through his glove and into the net.

Vancouver tied it up two minutes later on a great individual effort by Markus Naslund.

The Canucks' captain stole the puck off Van Ryn on the forecheck and battled his way to the front of the net, getting two shots away before finally chipping his third effort past Belfour for his 13th of the season.

For Naslund the goal broke a 17-game goal scoring drought, the longest of his career since going 18 in a row during the 1996-97 season.

Brendan Morrison restored Vancouver's lead midway through the period, jumping on a rebound in the high slot and drilling a one-timer through Belfour's legs for his 11th of the season.

But the lead was shortlived as Gregory Campbell made it a 3-3 hockey game just 73 seconds later with a harmless looking wrist shot that beat Luongo from 35 feet. Campbell's third of the season came with the Panthers' shorthanded.

Notes: With Daniel and Henrik Sedin both registering an assist on Sunday the Canucks are now 15-9-0 this season when both have notched at least one point. Over their career the Canucks are 103-34-16 when that happens. ... The Canucks have played in 27 games this season that have been decided by one goal or in a shootout.
