Canucks fans poured out of Rogers Arena and poured out onto Granville steet, relieved after their team avenged their consecutive defeats in Boston. Fans cheered loudly, blowing vuvuzelas and horns in the streets. Police looked on as fans on Granville Street celebrated, waving flags and homemade Stanley Cups.

Canucks forward Maxim Lapierre was the hero of the night, putting a late goal past Bruins goalie Tim Thomas after a scoreless first and second period.

If the Canucks win the next game on Monday, the victory party is expected to eclipse the celebrations tonight, as it would be the first Stanley Cup win in franchise history.
