Depending on who you believe, Mirtle said it was official on March 27 and his day job, the Globe and Mail said it was as of tonight, the Canucks have clinched a playoff berth.
After being down 2-nothing in the 1st period, the boys battled back, led the game, then eventually went to a shootout. This game had so many goals it almost made me forget about how much of a yawn the Minnesota game was. That was truly just a terrible game, if this is what the new NHL is all about, I'm all for it. During the summer when Gillis said that Vigneault would coach a more aggressive style of hockey I didn't think it would happen, but it did.
