To say this game had a playoff atmosphere is a huge understatement. Emotions, hits and even the crowd were running high with the NHL-leading Vancouver Canucks in town for a normally staid matinee game.

A controversial Daniel Sedin goal 11:36 in the third period helped give the Canucks the 3-1 victory and irked head coach Terry Murray.

“That’s a goddamned shame that goal was allowed,” Murray said with his blood pressure rising. “The guy’s in the crease, [goalie Jonathan] Quick can’t move his stick and [Drew] Doughty is pushed off over top of our goaltender.

“It’s a goddamned shame. It should not be allowed. That’s a penalty.”
