Vancouver Canucks' sellout streak ends at 474 games

The Vancouver Canucks' sellout streak ended at 474 games Saturday night with a less-than-capacity crowd at Rogers Arena for a game against Tampa Bay.

The last time the Canucks didn't play in front of a full house at home was on Nov. 12, 2002, when they beat the St. Louis Blues 6-3. The sellout streak began two days later in a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.

The announced attendance for the Canucks' 4-2 loss to the Lightning on Saturday was 18,647 — just 223 short of a sellout.
