Unfortunately, the epic goaltending battle between Pekka Rinne and Roberto Luongo has come to an end.

In a series where fans were constantly left wondering whether anyone was ever going to score, the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Nashville Predators in six games.

Despite the surprisingly raucous crowd in Tennessee, the Canucks took control of the game from the get-go and managed a 2-1 victory over the Preds.

Now, Vancouver is left waiting for its next opponent as San Jose and Detroit continue to slug it out.

The Sharks and Red Wings hit the ice for Game 6 this evening at 8 p.m. Eastern time in what is Detroit's third consecutive elimination game.

Detroit has home-ice advantage and momentum on its side while San Jose has history. Should be fun to watch.
