  • 00:53 •

VANCOUVER -- Goaltender Jacob Markstrom didn't have to look far to find extra motivation for the final month of the Vancouver Canucks' disappointing season.

Markstom made 32 saves, and Markus Granlund scored on a rebound off a 2-on-1 rush 1:42 into overtime to give the Canucks a 3-2, come-from-behind win against the Arizona Coyotes at Rogers Arena on Wednesday.

"You come into the room and you notice everyone is happy, everyone is smiling, and that's the way you want it to be when you come in after a game, especially at home," said Markstrom, who made a save against Max Domi on a breakaway early in overtime. "And the fans are happy; you want to play for them too. There's a lot of pride going on right now."
