No. 1 Vancouver Canucks vs. No. 5 Nashville Predators
GAME 1: VAN 1 – NSH 0

VANCOUVER – The Predators, who had no trouble finding the back of the net in the first round, now see that getting goals will be a lot tougher against Roberto Luongo as the Canucks shutout the Predators, 1-0, to take the first game of the series.

Pekka Rinne stopped as much as he could in hopes his team could beat Luongo, but no Predator could solve him.

Chris Higgins scored the only goal of the game for the Canucks.

Rinne made 29 saves and Luongo stopped all 20 he faced.
