The Canucks' home opener was, as Quinn Hughes put it, 'a special night for everyone,' writes imacSportsnet.

On what Quinn Hughes called 'a special night for everyone,' the Vancouver Canucks introduced a new captain and then throughly dominated the Los Angeles Kings.

On Wednesday, it took the Canucks straight over the Los Angeles Kings, who were over-run early and late and beaten 8-2 to start this new era for Vancouver’s National Hockey League team.

"I had butterflies in my stomach. I was nervous obviously. It’s a huge moment and a huge opportunity. I got more comfortable as the game went on. I started making more plays and getting back to being myself. But (at the start) you’re pumped so full of adrenalin, your heart is going a million miles an hour. You just want to have a great game on this night. What a way to start."

Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom was as sharp as Quick was suspect, making 37 saves and doing his best work in the middle of the game when the Kings had started climbing back from a 3-0 deficit.

After Sean Walker’s wrist shot lifted the Kings with two goals, down 4-2, at 6:51 of the third period, the Canucks poured in four goals in eight-and-a-half minutes to win by a touchdown.

Tanev is the stay-at-home defenceman who has scored twice in each of the last three seasons.

The five-foot-10 defenceman scored his first NHL goal to make it 1-0 just 5:26 after the Horvat ceremony, blistering an unscreened slapshot past Quick’s glove. And shooting the puck is supposed to be the least impressive weapon in Hughes’ offensive arsenal.
