The Canucks tied it 2-all at 10:52 of the third when Sedin banked in a shot off Greiss from the corner for his 24th of the season. Hickey then scored his fourth on a drive from the point 2:03 later that appeared to hit a defender in front.
Vancouver pulled Markstrom with 2:30 to go, but the Canucks were unable to get an equalizer despite some sustained pressure.
