Trevor Linden bangs in rebound to give Canucks 2-1 win over Stars

Trevor Linden shoveled a rebound past Marty Turco with 5:31 left in the third period and defenceman Willie Mitchell prevented a tie by sweeping a trickling puck off the goal line, giving the Canucks a 2-1 victory over the Stars on Tuesday night.

Vancouver leads the series 3-1. The Canucks can advance to the second round - and avoid a return trip to Texas - with a victory at home Thursday night.

Dallas is in jeopardy of being eliminated in a five-game, first-round series for the third straight post-season. A big part of the Stars' problem has been an inability to win at home. This was their sixth straight home playoff loss covering those three playoffs.
