What a night at Rogers Arena.

After announcing their retirement Monday morning, Tuesday’s home game against the Vegas Golden Knights was obviously a big deal.

With just two home games left on the schedule, time is running out for Vancouver Canucks fans to show appreciation to their franchise players, so they took full advantage of every second of Sedin time.

It started before the game even started, the crowd was on their feet cheering when the Sedins took to the ice.

It was a playoff atmosphere in Rogers Arena, with fans roaring and plenty of Sedin signage around.

Although the Sedins only had one point on the scoresheet (a Daniel Sedin assist) they had some great and nostalgic shifts hemming the Golden Knights in their own end and reminding fans of what made them such unique and iconic players.

In the third period, fans gave a spontaneous ovation for Henrik and Daniel, who were feeling the love, waving to the crowd.

The game itself turned out to be pretty entertaining. The Canucks rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the third period to force overtime and eventually a shootout.

Despite not much shootout success in their careers, the Sedins each got an opportunity in front of an anxious home crowd. Daniel hit the post while Henrik was stopped by Malcolm Subban and the Golden Knights went on to win the game.

Afterwards, fans stayed for one last cheer, and the Sedins saluted them. Even the Golden Knights stuck around to shake Henrik and Daniel’s hands.

The Sedins play their final home game on Thursday against the Arizona Coyotes, and you can bet that one will be even more emotional.
