It was the 8th-seeded ’11-’12 Canucks who got the early foothold in the series with a 4-1 win in Game 1. Jannik Hansen and Daniel Sedin both posted a goal and an assist to lead them to the opening win. Then, the top-seeded and reigning representatives, the ’10-’11 Canucks took the next three games to take a 3-1 series lead. However, two of them were very long overtime games. In Game 2, both teams scored one goal in the first and two goals in the second before having a scoreless third period. Game 2 went into a second overtime when Ryan Kesler scored the winner a little over a minute into the period for the ’10-’11 Canucks. In Game 3, the ’11-’12 Canucks held a 2-1 lead after the first period and kept that lead until there were three plus minutes left in regulation.

Daniel then scored on the PP for the ’10-’11 Canucks after Henrik Sedin of the ’11-’12 Canucks was given a high sticking minor. Game 3 went all the way to a third overtime until Alexandre Burrows eventually won it for the top seed at the 12:45 mark. Goaltender Roberto Luongo got the first of his two shutouts in the series in Game 4 when he stopped all 33 shots against in a 5-0 win where Kesler and Daniel led offensively with three points each. Daniel then led the ’11-’12 Canucks to a 3-1 win while scoring two of the goals. Luongo then got his second and final shutout of the series in Game 6 where he stopped all 40 shots against in a 3-0 win to clinch the series.
