Game Notes:

  • Don’t mess with the DevilsHilarious clip.
  • Bill Guerin gets his first ever Playoff OT goal in his 17 year career.
  • Sundin scores his first playoff goal in 5 years giving the Canucks a 1-0 lead.
  • J.D. being interviewed as 3rd period starts.  You hear that voice and you think you’re watching a Rangers game.
  • Keith Tkachuk playoff goals: 28.  Remainder of St. Louis Active Roster: 23.  Shockingly he was also the voice of reason holding back Andy Murray at the end of the game when it looked like his coach was going to jump onto the Canucks bench.

Canucks vs. Blues 3 Stars:

  • 1st Star:  Roberto Luongo.  Having seen him do it live (in Detroit last year vs. Hasek) and after watching him tonight, he is just unbelievable.  He makes amazing saves look routine.  Shutout.
  • 2nd Star: Sedin Twins & Burrows.  Fantastic energy all game long.  Buzzing in all ends of the rink.  (combined 6 points tonight)
  • 3rd Star:  Andy McDonald must have hit 15 posts and crossbars tonight.  Best Blue on the ice.
  • Bob Clarke’s the penalties these days aren’t actually penalties rant on the radio show two weeks ago continues to be affirmed by the league’s officials. How on earth those two “cross-checks” were penalties in overtime is beyond me???????

  • He would be going doubly ballistic because a) they were pretty marginal calls and b) it was against his former team.
