Sedin twins play their last home game before retirement; combine to score twice in a storybook finish: Being from Vancouver it's difficult to have perspective, but as Henrik and Daniel Sedin retire there is talk that these are two generational players; the best to have ever played for Vancouver. Certainly they have been the best pair of players for the Canucks, truly a combined value that is more than the sum of their parts. And the way they finished out their last home game of the season was virtually scripted. A typical magic goal of intricate passing in the second period, and a long possession power play goal to win the game in overtime. Unassuming and unlikely stars for one team in their 18-year careers, blighted only by the lack of a championship (though they came within one game in 2011)

It's difficult to be a fan of hockey and not be a fan of the Sedin twins'. I'm glad they got to go out in front of the hometown fans like that-with the skill and grace that has typified their careers since they came into the league. Y'all up in the Pacific northwest really have been spoiled by their game for a long, long time.
