WASHINGTON — Jacob Markstrom stopped 32 shots and then denied seven more during an extended shootout, helping the Vancouver Canucks beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Saturday.
Elias Pettersson scored his 10th goal for Vancouver, which earned its second straight win since a stretch of seven losses in eight games. It was the Canucks’ 12th power-play goal in their last seven games.
Bo Horvat scored the decisive goal in the seventh round of the shootout.
Washington finished with one goal for the third time this season despite Vancouver losing defenceman Alexander Edler to an upper-body injury.
