Kevin Bieksa Overtime Goal Video, May 24, 2011: Canucks vs Sharks
The Vancouver Canucks Are Going to the Stanley Cup Final After Kevin Bieksa Scored a Dramatic Overtime Goal on May 24, 2011. Here is the Kevin Bieksa Overtime Goal Video
For the first time since 1994, the Vancouver Canucks are going to the Stanley Cup finals. The Canucks won game 5 of the 2011 NHL Western Conference Finals thanks to a dramatic double overtime goal from Kevin Bieksa.
The Kevin Bieksa overtime winner was a bit of a freak goal. Midway through the second overtime, the puck bounced off a stanchion and went straight to Bieksa. The defenceman quickly fired a shot at the net. Before goaltender Antti Niemi knew what happened, the puck was in the net, sending the Canucks to the Finals.
The Canucks last advanced to the Stanley Cup Final exactly 17 years ago. On May 24, 1994, the Canucks beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 5 thanks to a goal in double overtime from forward Greg Adams.
