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.

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
