Canucks 1 Stars 2 (OT)

It was my first niece's baptism yesterday afternoon so I only caught the first 20 minutes of yesterday's 2-1 OT loss to the Stars. From what I heard, it wasn't a pretty game the rest of the way, and looking at the stats, it sure seems like the 'Nucks were thoroughly outplayed.

The Canucks were outshot (again) 36-18, including 20-6 in the third period and overtime. They also gave the Stars seven consecutive powerplay opportunities, including a 5-on-3 late in regulation and one in overtime; the Stars converted on their last two powerplays.

The good news is that the Canucks still somehow managed to get a point - do I thank Roberto Luongo for that? Combined with the Oilers loss and the Avs loss, the Canucks are that much closer to a trip back to the postseason.
