Blackhawks fall short in defense bid

Canucks 2, Blackhawks 1, OT

Associated Press


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – To understand how big it was for the Vancouver Canucks to finally knock the Chicago Blackhawks out of the playoffs, you just had to talk to their Olympians.

Alex Burrows scored his second goal 5:22 into overtime, Roberto Luongo made 31 saves and the Canucks avoided a historic playoff collapse by beating the defending Stanley Cup champions 2-1 in Game 7 of their first-round series Tuesday night.

After being lit up and eliminated from the last two playoffs by the Blackhawks, Luongo compared the victory to his gold medal for Canada in the same building 14 months earlier.

“I don’t know, this one might be better than the Olympics,” Luongo said.

Mac I got it. Hawks were down 0-3 tied it 3-3; couldn’t repeat.
