Canucks Complete Four-Game Sweep of the Blues

By  | 

Alex Burrows scored his second goal of the game with 18.9 seconds to go in overtime and Roberto Luongo made 47 saves to help the Vancouver Canucks complete a four-game, first-round sweep of St. Louis with a 3-2 victory over the Blues Tuesday night.

Kyle Wellwood also scored for the Canucks, who won a series before the seventh game for the first time in 12 tries since 1994.

Brad Boyes and David Perron scored for the Blues, who rallied from a two-goal, second-period deficit thanks to increased traffic around Luongo. But more power play woes doomed St. Louis, which was 0 for-7 with the man advantage and 1-for-23 in the series including a four-minute double-minor midway through overtime.
