Welcome back to another edition of Throwback Thursday!

This week in 2012, the Presidents Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks were eliminated by the LA Kings. The final loss came on April 22.

Vancouver, who cruised to a 51-22-9 record in the regular season, were led offensively by big seasons by the Henrik and Daniel, who posted 81 and 67 points respectively, all the while Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider shutting things down in the net.

As great of a regular season thatt the Canucks had, things fell apart in the playoffs squaring up against the LA Kings in the first round.

Vancouver never seemed to get their feet underneath them winning only one game — a 3-1 game four victory on the road — en route to losing in five games.
