The Vancouver Canucks’ unlikely playoff run continued on Tuesday with a 5-2 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights. The Canucks win evened the second-round series 1-1.
Game Two featured the return of Tyler Toffoli to the lineup (three points) as well as two goals from Bo Horvat, a goal and two assists from Elias Petterson, and 38 saves from goaltender Jacob Markstrom. Late in the game, the Golden Knights looked for retribution and tried to send a message for Game Three.
With minutes remaining, Golden Knights defenseman Zach Whitecloud attempted to lay out former Capital Jay Beagle as he entered the Canucks’ offensive zone. Instead, Beags chipped the puck forward and did a spin move (!!!), sending Whitecloud head-first into Vegas’s bench.
