The ’09-’10 Canucks responded with a 2-0 win in Game 4 on the back of a 30-save shutout performance from goalie Roberto Luongo. His opposite, Kirk McLean, had a nice night for himself stopping 36 of 38 shots against in the loss. The ’09-’10 Canucks closed out the series with a 7-4 win in Game 5. Henrik, once again, led the way as he scored a hat trick and added an assist while his brother totaled three points. Petr Nedved scored a hat trick of his own for the ’92-’93 Canucks in the loss.
