Fans waited a long time to get the first and only goal of the game and it came late in the third period when Vancouver Canucks’ Pius Suter scored the winner and his team advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 1-0 victory over the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of their first-round series on Friday.

Then, with 30 seconds to go, the officials called a penalty on Elias Lindholm for Cross-checking against Gustav Nyquist, which gave Nashville a very dangerous man advantage.

The puck drop of the final play, the Predators went all in and fired at goalie Arturs Silovs, who needs to thank his defenseman Tyler Myers for the epic heroic block at the very end to keep the Canucks’ lead en route to the victory.

The game had been quite uneventful in the first 50-something minutes only with both Silovs and Preds netminder Juuse Saros being strong brick walls.

The Canucks captured the series 4-2 on the road at Bridgestone Arena and will now face the Edmonton Oilers in the Western Conference semifinals. The Oilers eliminated the Los Angeles Kings in five games in their first-round matchup.

The series will kick off in Vancouver with the home advantage for the Canucks.
