Vancouver might just hold another riot if they lose in the first round. And then it'd become their tradition.


Wings tradition: winning cups and the octopus

Nucks tradition: choking playoffs and flipping over flaming cars

Kings are playing their darkhorse role fine, simple but yet effective hockey thats the way to win in the playoffs but I still think the Canucks possess tooooooo much talent to lose this series but if so, expect huge changes in Vancouver and AV to be shown the door.

The Kings have been playing some awfully intense hockey in this series... they will be tough to beat by any team if they can keep this up.

Besides the Pens losing 2 at home, this one brings the next biggest smile to my face :D

How's that Presidents trophy working for you now? Sorry it doesn't get you the cup you actually have to play instead of diving the whole game.

Need a "you're doing it wrong" meme. What good is diving and flopping if you are going to let in two short-handed goals? :D Same goes for the Penguins.

I'm loving the start of the Canucks series here in Van :D. And this was one of their better players for both games, just lounging around enjoying the view ... :D

If anything, the past few seasons have taught us that this and all 2-0 series are far from over but this is a definite shocker. Totally uninspired hockey from a team that needed to come out like gangbusters. Here is hoping the Kings can get it done.

Kesler, Sedin and Burrows with all there diving and whining and embellishing just cant win this time. Mike Richards and Dustin Brown are smashing these guys every play, playing the game the way it should be played. The funny thing is, everyone keeps saying "Start Schnieder in Game 3!" When it hasn't been Luongo's fault at all, it's been all on the forwards and defense having no answer for the Kings players. With rumors surfacing this morning that Daniel Sedin will be out for the series, I think Kings in 5 isn't a stretch at all. Quick can steal games by himself, and the Canucks are all outta sorts now that there diving to get PP's is turning into SHG's against, looks good on em :lol:

So close, and yet...
In all fairness, he hasn't been the biggest problem in their losses. But, it's just Loo being Loo.
What might be interesting is weather the "hockey genius" Vigneault will make a change in goal.

They've at least been humbled enough that some of them are admitting that Kesler and Sedin's diving is embarrassing.

Burrows, Kesler, and the Sedins are the top four forwards on that team, and they are all consummate divers. As a result, I find the Canucks impossible to respect.

Agreed.

Burrows is an all-around Grade A d-bag, but I could actually like or at least be indifferent to the Sedins and Kesler if they weren't such flop artists. And whiners. Kesler especially. His whining to the refs is pathetic.
