Oilers fans give Sedins standing ovation in their final NHL game (VIDEOS)

Henrik and Daniel Sedin have been tormenting the Edmonton Oilers for a long time. So Edmontonians, as much as anyone, know how great they are.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise then that Oilers fans gave the Sedins the sendoff they deserved on Saturday.

It was never going to match Thursday’s final game in Vancouver, but Henrik and Daniel’s last NHL game was still special. During a TV timeout in the first period, fans in Edmonton gave the Sedins a standing ovation.

It wasn’t all Oilers fans too. There’s always a lot of Canucks fans at games in Edmonton, and probably a few extra for this one.

Check out the Rogers Place concourse during the second intermission:

The Sedins didn’t factor into the scoring in the game, though Henrik Sedin came close to being the overtime hero.

The game went to a shootout, where the Sedins got to share a nice moment with their kids on the bench.

Daniel scored in the shootout, while Henrik’s slap shot attempt was stopped. The Canucks ended up losing 3-2.

The Sedins were given another standing ovation after the game. What a great career from two of the classiest players to ever lace up skates.

To the surprise of nobody, they were class acts until the end.

Thank you Sedins.
