The people of Vancouver have breathed a giant sigh of relief; their team was not swept from the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Wednesday evening in Los Angeles. Turns out the Vancouver Canucks came to play on Wednesday and weren't about to back down from anything the Kings threw towards them.

Despite giving up the all-important first goal, the Canucks did not back down. Their power play finally came together, and Alex Edler evened the game up on a shot from the point with the man advantage in the first. Henrik Sedin also scored a power-play marker in the game. The Canucks staved off elimination for at least one more game with a 3-1 victory.

Cory Schneider played an excellent game, keeping the Kings' offence to just one goal, and made 43 saves in the victory. It is safe to say he will be the Canucks starter from here on out this postseason.

Everything that had gone wrong the past three games seemed to go right for the Canucks in this game, and there are plenty of positives to take away from their big victory.
