Canucks :: backs to the wall


Originally uploaded by superstewy.

There’s no place left to run for the Canucks. I was worried last series that with all the overtimes that Vancouver and Dallas were taking to finish games whomever won would be totally destroyed by their next opponents, and that appears to be what’s happening here. The team played well for the first half of the game but the wheels fell off the short bus during the third period.

They just seemed to have gotten tired, and the Ducks dominated the third period and the short bit of overtime we saw. It was not a good scene, and now the Canucks have to win three in a row to get by the Ducks which looks nearly impossible. It’s time to get out the white towels, because we might be surrendering soon, and there’s a lot more leg room on the bandwagon this morning after most of the city jumped off of it.

Do I still think we’ve got a chance? I’m not answering that, but if the Canucks do make the next round it will be one of the greatest comebacks in franchise history and we’ll have to make Trevor Linden mayor. Otherwise I think we’re going to be a city of Ottawa fans very shortly.

    They did it against the Blues so it’s possible. Given the amount of injuries the Canucks have they played really well. All the games except one have been very close.

    Also need to remember that at the beginning of the season nobody thought they would get into the playoffs. It’s been a great season, that’s for sure.

    Well if they do lose to Anaheim, the Manitoba Moose are going all the way baby! Whoohoo Calder Cup here we come. (I know, no one really cares)

    Just how easy it is for so many of us to have forgotten …

    Opening best-of-7 round in the 1994 playoffs:

    Vancouver down 1-game-to-3 against Calgary.

    Three consecutive OT winners from Geoff Courtnall (game 5), Trevor Linden (game 6), and Pavel Buré (game 7).

    Then, taking Dallas in 5, and especially, Toronto in 5 (in that 2-3-2 format) were sweet.

    Soooo close against the Rangers though. Soo.
