Canucks knocked out of NHL Playoffs

Posted:

The NHL's best team in the regular season didn't make it out of the first round of postseason play.

Vancouver's 2-1 overtime loss to visiting Los Angeles in Game 5 of their best-of-seven matchup was the decider.

The Canucks were sent packing from the playoffs when Jarret Stoll beat Cory Schneider with a wrist shot at 4:27 of OT. That goal gave the Kings their first playoff series victory since 2001.

The Kings will play the Blues in the second round. St. Louis advanced Saturday with a Game 5 win over San Jose.

The Flyers are into the second round of the NHL playoffs, ousting a bitter rival to get there. Claude Giroux  scored 32 seconds into Game 6 of Philadelphia's opening-round matchup with Pittsburgh and the Flyers went on to hammer the Penguins 5-1 for a 4-2 series victory. It was Giroux's sixth goal of the series.

The Flyers will have to wait a few days to find out who their second-round opponent will be. That's because the Bruins beat the Capitals 4-3 in overtime yesterday in Washington to force a Game 7 on Wednesday in Boston. The B's blew three one-goal leads before surviving.

All six of the games in this postseason series have been decided by one goal and that's a first in league history.
