Canucks: 3 takeaways from 2-1 win over Rangers

1 of 4

On Saturday night, the Vancouver Canucks played host to the New York Rangers. Turning back the clock, nostalgia set in for the 1990s Era Series. Here’s what happened when the Canucks tried to win seven straight.

Over the course of the Vancouver Canucks’ 50-year existence, many would argue that 1994 was the most exciting year in their hockey. Led by captain, Trevor Linden and Russian goal-scorer Pavel Bure, the Flying Skate somehow beat the odds and forced a game seven final against the New York Rangers for the Stanley Cup.

We all know the end result, but man did they ever have a great team, maybe the best. For some Canucks die-hards, it’s always ’94.

The Flying Skatejersey made a comeback Saturday night, but sadly, the Russian Rocket did not. Elias Pettersson on the other hand, was a sight to see, rocking the new threads with an alien-like death stare. He was locked in and looking determined to help the Canucks win their seventh straight game. Let’s dive into what happened during Hockey Night in Canada’s Saturday night showdown which saw the Canucks come out on top 2-1.
