Trading chances
After Rene Bourque opened the scoring -- No. 18 on the year for him, assisted by Alex tanguay and Olli Jokinen -- the game settled into more of a back-and-forth affair.

Mike Cammalleri, making his return to the lineup, was sprung on a semi breakaway, but was denied by Miikka Kiprusoff.

On the next shift, Tanguay had a good chance, but fired just wide of the post. Two minutes later, Bourque was looking for goal No. 2 with a slapper that Price sticked aside. Bourque gained the puck on a turnover by Subban, who was trying to make a long pass but was foiled when his stick shattered.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
