Vancouver Canucks Flashback: Penalty Box Boobs [Video]

The 2011 NHL playoffs were a magical journey for the Vancouver Canucks. They were the Western Conference regular season champions and the Presidents' Trophy winners with the best record in the NHL at 117 points. They would go on to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals, but it was during game two of the Western Conference Finals against the San Jose Sharks that Canucks fan history would be made.

This was the first playoff series between the Canucks and Sharks. Vancouver won three of the four games that were played in the regular season; their only loss to San Jose came in a shootout. Both Vancouver and San Jose played in a series during the 2011 playoffs where each took a 3–0 series lead, only to see the opposing team win the next three games to force a seventh game. However, both won their respective seventh games to advance to the next round of the playoffs.

San Jose, facing elimination in game five, held a 2–1 lead near the end of the game until Ryan Kesler forced overtime by scoring with only 13.2 seconds left in the third period after a controversial icing call. After a scoreless first overtime, Kevin Bieksa was able to capitalize on an unexpected rebound to score the series-winning goal 10:18 into the second overtime, sending Vancouver to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1994.

Now lets rewind back to game 2 of the series. It was May 18, 2011 and the air was rife with emotion. Ben Eager had just scored a goal, but was now heading to the box of shame. Sensing a turning point and a chance to throw the Sharks off their game, a proud Vancouver Canucks fan leapt into action. She approached the box, hoisted her Henrik Sedin jersey and flash her double pierced breasts to Sharks enforcer Ben Eager and setting up, rent free, in his kitchen. Eager was so rattled that no more than 24 seconds after this penalty expired was he ejected from the game and subsequently scratched from the remainder of the series, never to skate again in a NHL playoff game.

Vancouver, we salute you and your fans who know what it takes to get the W.
