After withstanding a couple of early chances, the Canucks got a goal from an unlikely candidate—Aaron Rome—to open the scoring and then got the winner off of Mason Raymond's stick in the second while goaltender Cory Schneider held the Canucks in it despite a barrage of quality shots off New Jersey sticks.

Game Day Recon: Game #62 - Canucks @ Devils

The Canucks and the Red Wings played last night, and it was arguably the game of the season for both clubs. They put on the type of hockey-playing clinic that you want to show non-hockey fans and say, "See? THIS is how the game should be played. THIS is how good our game is."
