What a game, apparently. As Head Dude hasn't checked in here at DudeSpin today, I can only guess that he is physically and emotionally drained by the Dallas Stars falling 5-4 to the Vancouver Canucks in four OTs last night. I can verify that this game actually took place, because as one of about 0.5 percent of Americans who gets Versus, I was watching, though I fell asleep long before twin brothers Daniel and Henrik Sedin teamed up to end the marathon.
Since the goal of DudeSpin is to educate as well as entertain and we don't talk much hockey, here's a name to remember: Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo. Stuck with the sorry Florida Panthers for the first years of his career, Luongo played in his first playoff game last night and merely made 72 saves to get the win. Yes, the Stars set a modern record with 76 shots on goal and lost, which can't make Head Dude too pleased.
