Canucks Steal the Game with the One (and only) Goal

With 70 shots and almost 30 penalty minutes, you'd think that this would be a high scoring game, but there ended up only being one goal Wednesday night. With only 19 seconds left in the game, a streaking Raffi Torres received a pass from Hansen about five feet in front of the crease, and tapped the puck into the wide open net. Luongo was the first star, getting a 36 save shutout, followed by Thomas and Torres as second and third star. All 5 previous teams that have shutout the opposing team in game 1 have ended up winning the Stanley Cup... a sign of things to come? Game 2 will be played on Saturday night in Vancouver, before going to Boston for 2 games.
