No. 1 star: Mikael Samuelsson, Vancouver Canucks
The final game of the night needed an extra period to decide things and at 8:52 of overtime, Mikael Samuelsson’s shot beat Los Angeles’ Jonathan Quick(notes) for his second goal of the night as Vancouver took Game 1 3-2. The Sedins continued leaving their imprint on the Canucks’ offense with Daniel adding a goal and an assist and Henrik recording two helpers of his own.
