The Vancouver Canucks were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs in Game 7, losing 3-2 to the Edmonton Oilers, marking a disappointing end to their season.

Heading into Game 7, many fans hoped for a tight contest, but the Oilers quickly took control and never looked back.
The Canucks did make a push in the third period with two quick goals, making things interesting. However, that's where the comeback ended as the Oilers secured the win and their spot in the Western Conference Finals.
After the game, there was concern about potential riots in Vancouver, a reaction seen in past years after big losses. One account on X even posted a video claiming riots had started, but the Vancouver Police Department confirmed the video was not from Vancouver.
Then a fan doubled down on the video, only to be shut down again.

The Edmonton Oilers will now face the Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Finals. As for the Canucks, their focus will shift to getting their stars healthy and preparing for next season.
