Canucks rally in the third period to beat Blue Jackets 3-2

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) None of Vancouver's three goals on Tuesday night were particularly pretty. Two bounced in off skates, and the other caromed into the net off the backside of Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo.

The Canucks will take them. After trailing most of the game, they scored all three in the third period to beat Columbus 3-2 and win their third straight game after losing 12 of 13.

"I felt like all our goals were greasy ones tonight," said Vancouver winger Jake Virtanen, who scored the game-winner off Korpisalo with just under two minutes left. "None of them were nice shots or anything like that, so it was nice to have that tonight. We don't really get those often."
