The first two periods of game 1 were penalty filled and took away from the flow of the game. The Canucks dominated the Bruins in the third period with thier speed. Both goalies played great. Have to wait to Saturday for game 2. That's too long between games IMO. Check out this hip check by Canuck's Dan Hamhuis. Unfortunately he left the game with an injury just after the hit.

What, you're back in Canada again?


I am for the summer. Good timing with the playoffs too!

As much as I want to see the Nucks fall apart (Im a SJ fan), its probably not going to happen.  Thomas was lights out in game 1 and that wasn't enough.  I think that will be a common theme through the finals.  

I just hope Malhotra can get up to speed and see some icetime.

Canucks win 3-2 in 11 seconds of OT. Canucks lead the best of seven 2-0. Heading to Boston for games 3 and 4.

The numbers when a team is up 2-0 in the Stanley Cup is 42-4. That being said the Canucks have taken the early lead in all thier series then.... I never count a team out of it however it's looking good. 35 years. It's been a long wait and I'm an impatient SOB.LOL

Well, it's 40 years of no cup for Vancouver. It would be nice to parade it around here, especially after all the Gold we won in the Olympics last year.

hoping for Vancouver...as a Montreal native I grew up to loathe the Bruins, while mostly respecting them.  But I have found it hard to respect some of their behavior this year - Chara's vicious hit on Pacioretty, Mark Recchi's asertion that Montreal was "embellishing" Pac's injury (a broken cervical vertebra is pretty hard to make up), Andrew Ference's finger to the Montreal crowd after he scored a goal, and Tim Thomas complaining about Montreal's budding superstar PK Subban's diving just moments after eliminating Montreal in overtime in Game 7.  So it seems they are sore winners, and God knows what they might be like as losers.  I sure hope I get to find out.

And I should ass that the Boston media is equally horrific, never missing a chance to diss the opposition as either wimps or dirty players, depending on their level of aggression.  There is no denying the Bruins have been built for strength and size for 40+ years, and lately it hasn't done much for them, but this year's edition has skill and goalscoring prowess along with the nastiness, and that is proving a formidable combination.

Being also a Habs fan, I witnessed those Bruins-Habs games of the 70's (the Orr-Dryden era) with such awe!!! The respect I have for the bruins still come from those times... always hated the no-class bullies (flyers) , with Esposito, Schultz and Maloney, though.
 
I fear for the Canucks' win though.... Clearly the bruins are going to even it out in Beantown (where they really spanked their foes), but that last game out west is going to be an all-out brawl.  Actually if it does come down to that last game, I'd say the odds for the Bruins are above 50%
 
 
 
 
 
Stanley head home!!!!!!

I grew up a Montreal fan and so i also hated the Bruins and still do. Believe it or not i started cheering for Montreal after they beat Chicago for the cup in 1968.I was seven years old and they became my team.Not a bad team to be cheering for in the seventies.Dryden and Lafleur were my favourites from that era.

Not even counting that the Quebec Nordiques (then in WHA) were "stealing/plundering" Habs players right, left & centre...
 
But the 70's were an amazing decade for Canada in generalClapClapClapStarStarStar.... The only thing they missed was that first canada Cup, losing to the CzechsCry (but my then-girlfriend, well sweetheart, was a Czech refugee, so I didn't feel that badLOL)
 
 
No small thanks to the WHA (what a mess THAT wasConfusedShockedSmile), CANADA RULED!!!
 
Some of these Canadian cities had two hockey teams for a while ... Toronto (remember the Toros and Napier) or Vancouver (Blazers)... But the Nordiques and Winipeg Jets were regularly champions...
 
I even went to Varsity to see Toros games (against Jets , Nordiques, Calgary Cowboys and Oilers)....
but the only time I ever went to the Maple Leaf Gardens was to see concerts (I hated that Harold Ballard arsehole)

as an afterthought to my previous post, I find that Hockey was incredible to Canada until 93, when ther habs won it last (since then the stanley drought has strickenCry).... I mean it was all for the original six teams, until the Islanders, Penguins and Oilers came in >> but these were Canadian offshoots anyway.... Just imagine that the year (95) the Nordiques moved to Denver, they won the cup .... and the following year, the Jets moved to PhoenixOuch and that in 94, the Canucks losdt the finals.
 
 
But since then, the weak CDN$, the high income taxes and small markets have really hurt us.
