Vancouver Canucks' 474-game sellout streak ends
The Vancouver Canucks announced the team's 474-game sellout streak has ended, according to TSN's Matthew Sekeres. Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning would potentially be the first non-sellout in 11 seasons.
The team thanked fans by posting an infographic on its site that includes notable stats and moments from throughout the streak.
The Canucks began the longest active sellout streak in the NHL with a win over the Los Angeles Kings on Nov. 14, 2002. Over the years, the team retired three jerseys, reached the playoffs eight times and welcomed more than 8 million fans through the gates at Rogers Arena.
The Canucks finished last season with a 36-35-11 record and did not qualify for the playoffs for the first time in six years.
Vancouver travels to Edmonton Friday to play the Oilers in their third game of the season.
