In Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarter-Final, Luongo stood on his head making 72 saves, but it would Henrik who steals the spot light scoring at 18:06 of the fourth overtime. Hank tipped in a pass from brother Daniel to end the marathon after 136:50 minutes of total play, five hours and 21 minutes after the puck dropped to open the game. Making this the longest game in Canucks history and the sixth longest playoff game in NHL history ended with the Canucks swarming Henrik and fans at GM Place in a frantically waving their white towels. But for Henrik, fatigue didn’t play a part at all. “Personally, I felt better the longer the game went,” said Henrik. “I got my legs going in the fifth and sixth period.” Thank goodness he did!

  1. Well done. These are actually well thought out and not just dumbo Wimpden’s retirement night choices. I’ll throw in a totally obscure honorable mention. The Canucks beating the defending Cup champ Bruins that first NHL expansion year behind Rosaire Paiement’s heroics. I also think they may have beaten the B’s twice that season.

    I have been a Canuck fan since I was 5 years old when they were playing in the WHL! I was at this game 7 in Calgary when Pavel scored this huge OT winner! It was awesome, my brother and our best friend drove to Calgary and bought tickets at the ticket window in the morning of game 7 after we drove all night to get there……what a sweet win that one was and what a run in ’94!!
