Video: Bieksa's Fluke Winner In Double Overtime Sends Canucks To Stanley Cup Finals

The Vancouver Canucks are headed to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 1994 with tonight's double overtime win on one of the whackiest goals in recent memory.  Just past the midway point of the second overtime Canucks defender Alex Edler attempted to dump the puck deep into San Jose's zone, but the puck would take a strange bounce off a stanchion and head over to Kevin Bieksa at the point. 

Bieksa was seemingly the only player on the ice who knew where the puck was shot a knuckler towards the net while Sharks goalie Antti Niemi was still trying to figure out where the puck was.  The puck would beat Niemi low to the glove side and send Vancouver into eupohoria.
