Virtanen, Markstrom lead Canucks over Coyotes 3-1

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Jake Virtanen borrowed a move from his Western Hockey League days - and it helped lift the Vancouver Canucks to victory.

Virtanen scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and Jacob Markstrom made 34 saves to lead the Canucks past the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 on Thursday night.

With the score tied at 1 and the puck on his stick with just under five minutes left in the period, Virtanen went to something that worked when he played with the Calgary Hitmen. He took a pass from J.T. Miller and swooped behind the Arizona net before backhanding a shot that hit goaltender Adin Hill's left skate and bounced into the net.
