You just know that the Chicago Blackhawks are going to be even hungrier for a win in game 2. Canucks fans shouldn't get too excited because in the last two series against the Hawks the canucks won game 1, yet went on to lose both series. Canucks will need to keep their intensity high, and force. Crawford to come up with even more big saves.
The Canucks do have a lot going for them in this goal. Kesler looked great, with his line up against toews, sharp and Hossa for most of the night. Kesler created both Canucks goals, and also played solid defensively to prevent the Hawk top line from getting on the scoresheet. The other thing that the Canucks have going for them is that the Sedin's haven't stepped up yet. You know it is only a matter of time before Hank and Dank connect for one.
Also, Luongo played what the Calgary Herald called his greatest game as a Canuck. If Bobby Lou can keep this kind of play up, Canucks will have a lights out goaltender to go with their offensive prowess and defensive depth.
Check out this video! I have it synced to an awesome defensive zone faceoff win by Kesler, with a great lead up the ice by Bieksa, and then a goal by Higgins. So beautiful and with the Hawk's top line on the ice to boot:
