Videos- The Night Belonged To The Sedins

from Ian MacIntyre of Sportsnet,

Rogers Arena was not so much a hockey rink Thursday as a memory studio.

Nearly 19,000 people came to get their shot, to fix in their minds and hearts what it was like, and to use these memories like cherished photos to pull out years from now and remember and be glad they were there.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin gave them something priceless.

In the twins’ last touch of the puck in Vancouver – their final home game as Canucks at the end of 18-year Hall of Fame careers – Danny shot from Hank’s pass to lift the team they came to define to a 4-3 victory against the Arizona Coyotes.

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

One more. One more for Vancouver, for the Canucks. One more for the parents who raised them, Tommy and Tora; for the older brothers they idolized growing up, Peter and Stefan; for their wives and children and friends in the stands. One more for the fans, for the kids at BC Children's Hospital, for everyone they had wanted to thank when they announced their retirement Monday.

One more for Daniel and Henrik Sedin in their final home game. In overtime, on the power play, fans on their feet, Rogers Arena buzzing, Henrik sent a saucer pass from the right-wing corner to the point. At the end of a one-minute, 16-second shift, Daniel settled the puck on his blade and took a slap shot.

Below, three videos which sims up the night for the Sedins.
