Pardon the multiple posts, but last night’s Canucks game couldn’t have been more…perfect, for the Sedins’ final home game, as Daniel scored two goals, including the overtime winner. His first, below, was on a beautiful set-up from Alex Edler and Henrik.
slow-loading (about ten steamboats) and then go straight to 1:30 (or -2:45).
Number craziness (bearing in mind Daniel is 22 and Henrik is 33):
Daniel’s 1st goal - 22nd of season
- 33 seconds into second period
Daniel’s 2nd goal - 2:33 into OT (or, 22:33 into an ‘extended’ third period:p)
Faceoffs won last night - Canucks - 33, Coyotes, 22.
(heh - and in the previous game, against Las Vegas, the shots on goal: 22 - 33)
(Jim Carrey is about ready to shit his pants - probably wiping sweat off his brow that he didn’t see any 23s.)
And so - after 18 freakin years on the same freakin team, it got quite sad as they did a couple post-game laps and then shook hands with the Coyotes (this a thing now?), and a lot of camera shots of wet eyes in the crowd.
There were chants of “one more year”.
mmmm-naw, to that. They’re going out on their own terms (considering they can still play, sorta like Rafalski when he retired). Still, I can see Henrik getting phone calls this summer, but not Daniel, because he can play only with Henrik, while the latter can play with anyone.)
Nice aside: for the first time since expansion ('67, that is) - NOT ONE coach fired this season.
