Luongo kept them in a game that should not have gone to OT let alone a shootout !!
The strategy for breaking the trap is IMO not working. The Dman are forced to rifle the puck up the boards so the winger can tip it into the offensive zone. The problem with this is twofold. Firstly, it can lead to neutral zone turnovers, which it did on several occasions. Secondly, the "forecheckers" are standing still waiting for the puck to cross the blue line and they often can't get in quick enough. This strategy also tends to widen the gap between the D and forwards on breakouts as forwards vacate early.
Mason was ripe for the picking and the Canucks let him get away.
