NEWARK, N.J. -- Mike Santorelli scored the only goal in the shootout, and the Vancouver Canucks edged the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Thursday night.

In a matchup of former teammates, Roberto Luongo got the best of Cory Schneider - who used to be his backup in Vancouver. Luongo turned aside Travis Zajac, Adam Henrique and Patrik Elias in the tiebreaker to make Santorelli's goal stand up.

The Devils took a 1-0 lead just 5:05 into the game when Andrei Lokotonov found Elias for a shot from the left circle for his third goal. Ryan Kesler tied it at 6:07 with his fifth goal (see full recap).
