The Bruins and Canucks created a ton of chances in a wide-open first period, but the score remained 0-0 because of brilliant work by Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo.

While the Canucks have never won the Stanley Cup, the city of Vancouver has been without the prize since the early 1900′s. They’re probably feeling some separation anxiety by now.

After last year’s Stanley Cup Final, there were fans and pundits who claimed that goaltending wasn’t as important as it used to be.

Last night’s Game 5 series clincher by Vancouver gives us the chance to look back on the performances (or lack there of) from Roberto Luongo, Ryan Kesler, Joe Thornton, and Dany Heatley.

It took a pair of advantageous bounces in Game 5, but the Vancouver Canucks are off to their first Stanley Cup final appearance since 1994 after beating San Jose in double overtime to win the series in five games.
May 22, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT
The Sharks and Canucks switched roles from Game 3 to Game 4, as special teams fueled Vancouver’s 4-2 win. San Jose finds themselves down 3-1 in the series with their captain Joe Thornton’s health in question.

Roberto Luongo’s NHL career has been a bit up and down, but he’s looking to change all that by leading Vancouver to a Stanley Cup this year.
May 22, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT
The story of the first period revolved around Vancouver’s lack of discipline and San Jose’s inability to capitalize on their PP chances. The second period offered a stark contrast: the Sharks coughed up bad mistakes and the Canucks made them pay dearly, scoring three 5-on-3 goals in two stunning minutes.

The Canucks survived three penalties in the first period, but will give the Sharks another two minute man advantage to start the second. This post recaps the ups and downs of a scoreless opening frame.

Beyond simply winning, the Sharks hope that three different trends continue against the Canucks in Game 4.
May 21, 2011, 1:53 AM EDT
The Sharks fought back and held on late to take Game 3 over Vancouver to get back into the Western Conference finals.
May 20, 2011, 4:39 PM EDT
The Canucks are six playoff wins away from completing a rare hockey feat for the city of Vancouver: a gold medal and Stanley Cup in successive years. Even if the Canucks fall short, it’s still been a pretty stunning run, as this post illustrates.

Mike Keenan and Keith Jones break down Game 3 between the Sharks and Canucks.
May 19, 2011, 1:04 AM EDT
Vancouver dominated in Game 2 earning a 7-3 win over a Sharks team that looked slow, frustrated, and dumb all at once.
May 16, 2011, 12:03 PM EDT
We’ve got some thoughts on sagging third period efforts, diving, and the Sedins getting the breakout game they needed right off the bat.
May 15, 2011, 11:30 PM EDT
The Canucks wore down the Sharks in the third period to take a 3-2 win and 1-0 series lead. This post recaps that exciting game.

With the Western Conference finals kicking off tonight featuring a pair of teams with players that have a lot to prove, there are five that have a lot more pressure to win than the others.

While it was the Predators deepest run into the playoffs, it still came up short of the Stanley Cup. Just what went wrong for Nashville? The reasons are apparent.
May 10, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT
Today we stress on the Canucks winning in spite of getting next to nothing from their two best forwards, Roberto Luongo’s greatness, the coming out party for Nashville as an NHL town, and who Vancouver’s secret hero could be.
