Vancouver Canucks turned a 2-0 lead into a 5-2 loss last night in St. Paul.

Canucks led the host Minnesota Wild 2-0 after Ryan Kesler and Lukas Krajicek scored 51 seconds apart in the first period.

Minnesota's Todd White had a power play marker with 15 seconds to go in the period. The goal was disallowed at ice level but a Toronto-based video goal judge reversed the call remotely.

Brian Rolston equalized at 17:01 of the second when he beat Canucks' goaltender Roberto Luongo on a penalty shot.

Wild Nick Schultz broke the tie at 4:31 of the third. Pascal Dupuis and Branko Radivojevic added insurance markers.

Canucks' defenceman Sami Salo left the game with an unspecified lower body injury. Vancouver fell to 7-7, including an October shootout loss in Minnesota, and visits the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow night (7 p.m., Team 1040/CBC).
