The Canucks defeated the Stars tonight in the fourth OT period, with the game ending around 12:30am local time. Six hours after it started, it was all over. For people who attended the pre-game ceremony it was probably a seven hour affair.
Vancouver game up three one-goal leads and a single two-goal lead. They were thoroughly outplayed in the third period. They gave up 40-something shots by the end of regulation. If you examine the stats, they really had no business winning this game. The reality is they got lucky tonight. If they don’t make some adjustments for tomorrow, I guarantee you the next game won’t go into OT.
There are going to be some tired people out there tomorrow and I don’t mean the players.
