It came down to the bitter end for the Canucks during the 2000-01 season. After going winless in seven straight games leading into a home tilt with the Los Angeles Kings, Vancouver needed a win in its second last contest of the year to secure a playoff birth and ward off the pesky Phoenix Coyotes. Someone needed to step up and the unlikeliest of heroes emerged in Harold Druken. The swashbuckling forward was in a rut of his own having not scored in 13 consecutive games, but late in the 2-2 nail biter he broke out of his funk. Taking a pass from Todd Bertuzzi as he cut in front of the net, Druken snapped a shot past Felix Potvin to give the Canucks a 3-2 win and a secured playoff birth for the first time in four years.
