CHICAGO - Daniel Sedin scored his second goal at 1:20 of overtime, and the Vancouver Canucks recovered after blowing a late two-goal lead, beating the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Henrik Sedin made a great pass to his brother in the middle of the ice, and Daniel pushed it into the open left side of the net for his 13th of the season. He also scored in the third period to give Vancouver a 4-2 lead with 4:37 remaining.

Patrick Kane had a goal and two assists for Chicago, which looked listless for much of the night, and then closed with a flourish. Marian Hossa scored two goals for the third consecutive game.

Penguins 4, Red Wings 1

PITTSBURGH (AP) ? Blake Comeau scored and picked up an assist in his return from an upper body injury. Comeau missed nearly two months after getting hurt in an overtime loss to Florida on Dec. 22. He wasted little time getting back to work, assisting on Patric Hornqvist's score just 1:51 into the game and firing a one-timer past Petr Mrazek later in the first.

David Perron and Nick Spaling also scored for the Pittsburgh. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 shots to earn his fourth win in his last five starts.

Stephen Weiss picked up his seventh goal for the Red Wings, but Detroit was never in it. Mrazek made 13 saves on just 17 shots and was pulled after the second period.

Capitals 5, Sharks 4, OT

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) ??? Joel Ward scored with 2:18 remaining in overtime.

Jay Beagle scored twice and John Carlson and Troy Brouwer also scored for the Capitals, who have won four of their last five.

Brent Burns scored twice, Logan Couture and Joe Thornton also got goals as the Sharks lost their third straight and fifth in six games. Burns scored his goals within 22 seconds of the second period.

Braden Holtby, with a 0.88 GAA over his last five, saved 26 of 30 shots for Washington. Antti Niemi stopped 28 of 33 shots.
