The Vancouver Canucks stuck it to CBC, scheduling an afternoon affair in Vancouver against the San Jose Sharks, for their third Western Final rematch since Christmas. It was their last game of the season against the perennial playoff contenders, finishing the season series at 3-0-1 over their Pacific rivals with a 4-3 win with a lucky goal from Cody Hodgson in the game's waning minutes.

Hockey: sports would be boring with it.
