NHL.com @NHL

ST. LOUIS - Alex Burrows scored his second goal of the game 19:41 into overtime and Roberto Luongo made 47 saves to help the Vancouver Canucks complete a four-game, first-round sweep of St. Louis with a 3-2 victory over the Blues on Tuesday night.

Kyle Wellwood also scored for the Canucks, who won a series before the seventh game for the first time in 12 tries since 1994.

Brad Boyes and David Perron scored for the Blues, who rallied from a two-goal, second-period deficit thanks to increased traffic in front of Luongo. But power play woes doomed St. Louis, which was 0-for-7 with the man advantage and 1-for-23 in the series including a four-minute double-minor midway through overtime.
