No one in their right mind would have picked Aaron Rome - of all people - to seal the deal. But if that doesn't put a cherry on the top of this regular season and gear you up for the real one in a few short weeks, nothing will.
> What a difference a period makes. Though 40 the Preds held a distinct advantage at ES chances even with Vancouver slowly beginning to outshoot them. In the third the meter got pinned: shots were 13-2 VAN over final twenty minutes and the ES chances tilted in Vancouver's favor. Only the fourth line ended up beneath water.
> Burrows drove the stake in the heart in a span of roughly 17 minutes during that final frame. Both Sedins assisted on the goals as Daniel hits
100 98 points on the season. Hank remains tied with St. Louis at 93 91.
> Also on the ice for the Burrows goals and Rome's ENG? That'd be Weber and Suter. If you watch the replay, you'll note who Burrows burns for his second of the night (followed by a rather smug comment by Garret).
> If Raffi Torres ever does a no-look, between the legs, cross-ice pass in his own zone again, kittens will be punted into the stratosphere.
> Luongo finished the night with 16/17 saves, some of the best of which were in the second period when Vancouver was on their heels. He was the third star of the night and continues to lead the league in wins but, as you know, is overrated and basically terrible *.
> If you aren't impressed with Tanev yet, then turn around because he's standing behind you holding a basket full of puppies and a pitcher of lemonade.
> The PP was 0/5, but the PK was 5/5. Glass half full? Wait, the glass is always half full around here.
> In case you missed it, Hammer was announced to the crowd and feels "fine."
With the division and conference seeding wrapped up, the eye is now on the CURSED President's Trophy. But anytime the playoffs want to get underway would be just fine as well.
* = What? That's what our opponents said.
