For the first time in seven Roberto Luongo starts, the Canucks managed to end a game without the use of a shootout. What the midwestern hockey fans call "Free Hockey" has become so commonplace for the Canucks, that it almost felt strange to see them take two points in regulation. It has now officially been a month since the Canucks last regulation loss (January 15th against Anaheim), but this was only the third win in the team's last eleven games that occurred without the use of the shootout or over-time. I'm downright shocked, I tell you!

For the most part, tonight's affair was a pretty even game. While Roberto Luongo was once again the difference, it was nice to see the Sedins possessing the puck, and realistically threatening to perform acts of Sedinery for the first time in what seems like months! The game also saw Jannik Hansen, who scored the game winner off a lovely set up from fourth liner Cody Hodgson, and Alex Burrows break extended goal-scoring droughts. 

A more detailed recap, the statistical three stars and scoring chance data after the jump!

Booth's Slings and Arrows

David Booth has been extraordinarily unlucky over the past couple of seasons, both in terms of his health and in terms of the bounces. Sometimes, however, the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune can in fact work in one's favour. Booth's slow-start in Miami this October was driven by the percentages, and were partly what caused him to be shipped off to Vancouver in exchange for Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm. Upon his arrival in the Northwest, Booth's luck didn't change: it took him seven games, twenty-two shots and one hell of a second effort to tally his first goal as a member of the Canucks.
