by Dave Vest @davest4yotes / Coyotes Sr. Director of News Content

VANCOUVER -- The Coyotes tried to spoil the going away party for the Sedin twins at Rogers Arena on Thursday night, but that task proved too challenging. 

Playing their final home game before retiring from the NHL, Daniel and Henrik Sedin combined to score the game-winning goal at 2:33 of overtime to complete a furious comeback by the Canucks, who won, 4-3, after trailing 3-1 after two periods. Daniel scored the decisive goal off a pass from Henrik during a power play in the extra session.

After the goal, and Vancouver's on-ice celebration, each member of the Coyotes showed their respect for the twins by shaking their hands before leaving the ice.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Brad Richardson took it one step further by giving each twin a hug.
