The margin for error in the NHL can be so incredibly small at the best of times. Vancouver was .1 of a second away from being slapped in the face with this reality. While San Jose forwards exercised their annual time share on the Canucks defensive zone throughout the night, it wasn't enough to get past a scorching hot Ryan Miller for the equalizer late in the game. 

Sometimes it's the result that matters and not the process. Count tonight's victory for the Canucks as one such occasion. Despite being out-shot 36-19, the Canucks were able to exit the SAP Center with a rare victory over the Sharks by a score of 3-2. I'd hardly call this a winning formula long-term, but for tonight it was good enough.
