By  | 

Roberto Luongo carried the Vancouver Canucks for two games. Specialty units helped them take a 3-0 series lead against the St. Louis Blues.

The Canucks scored three power-play goals, including Steve Bernier's go-ahead score in the opening minute of the third period, while again stifling their opponents' chances with the man advantage in a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.

Vancouver, the third seed in the Western Conference, silenced a standing-room crowd of 19,500 for the Blues' first home playoff game in five seasons. The Canucks can finish off the sixth-seeded Blues in Game 4 on Tuesday night in St. Louis.
