Canuck suck

I'm not a Canucks fan, and I don't automatically root for any Canadian team no matter what, but I was certainly rooting for the Canucks against the detestable, thuggish Bruins.

But... alas.

Boston hoisted the Cup tonight, and they deserved it. Vancouver may have had too many injuries to overcome, but when it came down to it they just didn't show up when it mattered, notably their best players (where were the Sedins exactly?), losing badly three times in Boston and then being completely outmatched tonight in Game 7.

Though I continue to note that Montreal really should have beaten them in the first round, going up 2-0 with two wins in Boston and ultimately losing three games in OT. I hate the Bruins enough already. But to see them with the Cup after the Canadiens let it slip away... Ugh.

Anyway, it's been a great time for hockey in this country. The Canucks' loss takes nothing away from that. But it would have been nice.

  • "where were the Sedins exactly?"

    That's an easy one, look at the scoring hi-lights in game 7's shut out. One Sedin Twin was on the ice for all 4 goals against, the other for 3. Minus 7 on the night for the twins.
    Ouch, thats going to hurt for a while.
