The Vancouver Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup Final! It was amazing when Jim Robson said it 17 years ago, and it was just as amazing when Jim Hughson echoed that at the end of the Canucks' Game 5 series-clinching victory.

Now, the final battle in this post-season war awaits them.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 5 - Sharks @ Canucks

They were outplayed. They made two costly blunders. Ryan Kesler was limping badly. They were down by a goal with less than 30 seconds to play in the game. Things weren't looking good for the Vancouver Canucks. Then Kesler, playing one leg, tipped in a Henrik Sedin shot past Antti Niemi. And the Canucks had life. And then, after 30 minutes of overtime, Kevin Bieksa scored the weirdest goal in Canucks history. The "Bieksa Bounce" sent the Vancouver Canucks to the Stanley Cup Final.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 5 - Sharks @ Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks have been here before, and Canucks fans all hope that they learned their lesson. The Canucks couldn't close out the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 5 at home. They couldn't close the Nashville Predators in Game 5 at home.

Will the third time be the charm?
