10th: Adam Hall scores with 22 seconds left to earn tie in Vancouver
March 16, 2004

With every point being precious in their drive to make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, forward Adam Hall scored with 22 seconds left in regulation while goaltender Tomas Vokoun was pulled for an extra attacker, to salvage a point and a 2-2 tie with the Vancouver Canucks at GM Place.

The point gave Nashville 80 with nine games left in the regular season, equaling a franchise record and moving them into a seventh-place tie with St. Louis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, one point ahead of ninth-place Los Angeles.

"Maybe this one tie is going to be the point that puts us over the edge and into the playoffs," Hall said. "Hindsight is 20-20, you sit down after the season and say `If we just had a tie here or a win here it would have been the difference.' You really never can tell until the very end."

The tie was part of seven road games in the final 10 contests of the 2003-04 season, and sparked a 5-3-2 run to end the 82-game schedule, enough to edge out ninth-place Edmonton for the eighth and final playoff berth.
