It was a helluva game! and Vancouver came out on top. By one hard-fought, hard-won goal.
LaPierre scored a beauty about 5 minutes into the 3rd period. I’m telling you, it was an amazing feeling to see that goal go in the net.
Can they win in Boston? I hope so, but I’m not all that confident that they will.
For one thing, the ice in Boston is terrible. The arena is too hot, and the officiating will be completely lop-sided, again. It was marginally better tonight, but not what you’d call completely fair.
Boston seemed to be a little more disciplined tonight. Less goon hockey, more of the professional level of sportsmanship that we should expect tp see.
Daniel and Henrik, Kesler, Torres, Burrows, Higgins — they all played spectacularly. I felt very proud watching them.
And though much has been said about there being more Canadians on Boston’s team than on Vancouver’s, all I have to say is this: they’re not playing for Canada!
I love this team — they will bring the cup home — I just know it.
So, way to go boys — you did it!
Canucks all the way!
