Canucks Strike First against Sharks in NHL Western Conference Finals

The Vancouver Canucks have taken a 1-0 series lead against the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals with a 3-2 win on Sunday night.

Last season's Art Ross Trophy winner Henrik Sedin scored the winning goal; a power-play effort at 8:21 of the third period, assisted by Christian Ehrhoff and Ryan Kesler, who got his playoff-leading 16th point.

The hit-or-miss goaltending style of Roberto Luongo held firm for the Cunucks as he made 27 saves in the game, but it was a 38-shot barrage against Antti Niemi that helped the Canucks pull through.

Can Luongo continue his win streak or will Niemi rise again and carry his team to the Stanley Cup Finals?
