Sportsnet Stats@SNstats
#Canucks Thatcher Demko is the first rookie goalie to win his NHL playoff debut when his team was facing elimination since Jose Theodore of the Canadiens in 1997
StatsCentre@StatsCentre
Gm5 win over the Golden Knights tonight, Thatcher Demko tied Kirk McLean (also with VAN in Gm1 of their 1989 Smythe DSF vs CGY) for the 6th most saves made by a winning goalie (43) in their 1st ever playoff start (since NHL began playoff shot tracking in 1955-56)
NHL Public Relations@PR_NHL
Thatcher Demko became the 15th goaltender in NHL history – and second in as many days – to make his first playoff start in a game in which his team is facing elimination and win.

I like a good goalie controversy. We haven't had one for a few years.

Loved the Miller cross check on Reaves in front of the Canucks net that stood him up. Reaves looked shocked Miller would dare. The game was ours after that moment.

Vegas and the media were making a big deal about them having this awesome duo of Lehner + Fleury, great of Demko to make a statement that he's no chump change and that he can step in to steal a win as well. He looked as cool as a cucumber, like one of our greats, Cpt Kirk. Man, if Marky wasn't 100% in game #4 and Greener still played him, it may have cost us that game, the series and our starter. Nice to know we have a viable option if were in a back to back situation again. Demko won't be able to keep these numbers up, but hopefully we can keep those Vegas shots to the outside and limit the grade A chances.

Great to see the Brockstar respond with a big game as well. When he ripped that PP goal back in the St. Louis series, I was hoping that his shot was back. Even though he hasn't scored with that big shot since then, nice to see him step up and contribute on the scoresheet in other ways.

Wonderful to see Juice wear a Nuck's classic jersey. A true Canuck through and through. :D

As they say, the 4th win is always hardest to get. Those Vegas chumps blew a 3-1 series lead last season. We gotta come out hard next game, get an early lead and make them think it's going to happen again. We gotta do it, so the Rooster can have the last laugh. :P
