After blowing a 3-0 series lead, the Canucks finally closed out the Blackhawks in Game 7 of their opening-round series last night. Vancouver needed overtime, but left wing Alex Burrows came through 5:22 into the extra period with this goal. The win caused quite a celebration frenzy. As you can see above, Vancouver stars Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin couldn't control themselves, but they did show a little more restraint than the Canucks' famous "Green Men" fans.
