The Canucks went all out and battled this one right to the very end.
The final game of the Canucks vs Devils series, had Luongo coming out on top of the highly promoted battle with Cory Schneider. Not that these two seemed to think it was about that at all.
No matter how hard both teams tried to win it in regular time, this was going to a shootout. Fitting, considering the promotion around the two goalies.
The Canucks looked absolutely buggered. The team being considerably reduced by injury during this road trip meant Torts having to heavily rely on his main men to get through it. A bit of a break can’t come soon enough.
Canucks won 3-2 in a shootout.
