…Elias Pettersson Records 80 Point Season

J.T. Miller (2-0—2) found the back of the net twice in his 700th NHL game – including scoring the overtime winner – and Elias Pettersson (0-2—2) posted a multi-point performance to help the Canucks earn their 17th comeback win of the season. The only teams with more are the Devils (21), Maple Leafs (20), Penguins (19) and Bruins (18).

* Miller, who became the first Canucks player to score multiple goals in their 700th NHL game, tied Sami Salo (7) for the third-most overtime tallies in franchise history behind only Daniel Sedin (16) and Brendan Morrison (9).

* Pettersson (30-51—81 in 62 GP) became just the second Canucks player in the past 10 years to reach the 80-point mark in a season, following Miller (99 in 2021-22).
