Well, I’m trying hard to be optimistic, but let’s face it, Boston is out-playing the Canucks. The score is 3-0 after two periods of play. The last goal was a short-handed one. It should have never happened.
Although I don’t like to criticize a player, I have to say that Ehroff is the weakest link on the Canuck’s lineup. Time after time he has flubbed the pass, he has let Boston’s offence get the jump on him. He is not, by a long shot the only problem the Canucks are having, but I’ve noticed over the last two games how weak he is on the D. I’d pull him.
Kesler is playing like a pro, I love his heart. Daniel and Henrik are somewhat disappointing. I just don’t see the kind of magic that they are capable of coming through.
In listening to the commentators it sounds like it’s a foregone conclusion that Boston has the cup. I’m going to pray hard for a comeback from the Canucks, for them to tie it up and take it overtime if need be. But, it’s a long shot. A very long shot.
I’ll update this at the end of the game.
I feel like crying.
