Canucks to play for Cup after 2-OT win...

We were watching this last night, but fell asleep before it ended, unfortunately because it sounds like it was pretty darn exciting.

The Vancouver Canucks used a lucky break to tie the game with :14 seconds left in the game and then won it on Kevin Bieska's rebound shot with just under 10-minutes left in the 2nd overtime period.

The win sent the Canucks to the Stanley Cup Finals for only the 3rd time in their existence.

There were lots of heroes. Roberto Luongo made 54 saves and kept his team close. Forward Ryan Kesler tying the game after getting hurt and skating off the ice midway through the second period. And Bieska, who seemed to always be in the middle of things for Vancouver, found himself at the right place at the right time Tuesday night.

Vancouver will await the winner of the Boston/Tampa Bay series and it now confirms that we'll be getting a cross-continent Stanley Cup Finals series, no matter who else is in it.
