Supporters of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team flood Granville Street after the Canucks won a double-overtime victory over the San Jose Sharks. The last time the Canucks advanced to the final round in the Stanley Cup playoffs was in 1994.

The Canucks are the first Canadian team to make the cup finals since the 2007 Ottawa Senators. Vancouver Police have pegged the cost for the Canucks playoff run at around $650,000.
