Last night Canucks game had a little bit of everything: Shorthanded goals, Toskala losing, a comeback win, Luongo getting pulled and Raycroft doing a decent enough job to replace Lu. And the CBC going on and on and on about how good the Sedins are. The only thing that was missing was maybe a goal from O'Brien, but that would cause the HNIC people to just jizz in their pants, so I'll settle for the comeback win over the Leafs.

More after the jump...

After being down by two goals from Kessel and one from Jamal Mayers, the Canucks had Raycroft start the second. The Canucks really tightened up their defense in front of Raycroft, and the Leafs did their part by crumbling in the second and third.

Burrows got his 4th shorthanded goal of the season after stripping Ponikarovsky of thepuck, which is just what the Canucks needed to turn the game around

After going from being villified on CBC, to the team refusing to talk to CBC, Burr had 2 goals and 2 assists on the night. In addition to now leading the league in shorthanded goals,  he now has 25 goals and 24 assists this season. Wooo!

Twin super powers activate! The top line had a combined 9 points, 16 shots and were a +8 in the game. They also played like everysecond shift in the 3rd period with Henrik playing 23:10 by the end of the night.

Toskala's last game as a Leaf was in a loss against Andrew Raycroft and the Canucks. It kinda seems fitting doesn't it? Don't forget that the Leafs still pay Raycroft $733,000 to not play for their team.

Raycroft celebrated his win last night with a few fist pumps and some smiles in front of the fans at the ACC

Ian White imagines Toskala's head as a pinata...

Little does Ian White know that in a few hours he'd be told to pack his bags for Calgary...
