||The Vancouver Canucks were born as an NHL expansion team in 1970. Playing out of the Pacific Coliseum, the Canucks struggled through their first four seasons, before they were surprise winners of the Smythe Division in 1974-75. Their first post-season appearance ended with a 5-game loss to the Montreal Canadiens in the quarter-finals.
The club's first significant playoff run did not come until 1982, when they made their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final, losing to a superb New York Islanders club that won its third of four straight championships. Under coach and GM Pat Quinn, the Canucks won back-to-back division titles in 1991-92 and 1992-93, but were defeated in the second round of the playoffs both years. In 1994, Vancouver returned to the Stanley Cup Final, only to be defeated in seven games by the New York Rangers.
The Canucks moved to their new home-General Motors Place in 1995.
