VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Henrik Sedin scored 18:06 into the fourth overtime and Roberto Luongo made 72 saves to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-4 win over the Dallas Stars in the opening game of their first-round playoff series on Wednesday night.

Daniel Sedin came out from behind the net and spotted his identical twin brother cutting into the slot, where Henrik snapped a shot between the legs of Marty Turco, ending the sixth longest playoff game in NHL history in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Luongo set the record for saves in a first career playoff start, and the Canucks recovered after blowing a two-goal lead. When Antii Miettinen and Ladislav Nagy scored in the third period to rally the Stars from a 4-2 deficit and force overtime, no one could have predicted it would last so long.
