Also, Ovechkin must not be a star because they suspended him for jumping in a hit right before the all star game.
LOL, he probably wasn't a star at the time.....Played like shit 1st half of the season...

Who's #53 on the Coyotes??
After your goalie gets taken out like that (clean or not), you don't just stand there and do nothing.

I'm confident the Canucks will claw their way back into this series. They've made the Kings look like this incredible team when in reality the Kings are nothing but the Minnesota Wild in drag. They play defensive like the Wild and sit back and wait for chances like the Wild and the Canucks have given them plenty of chances with their bloody sloppy play and lack of pressure on the PP.

I wouldn't go as far as saying that this series should have been a walk in a park but the Kings imo were the easiest team to face in the first round but the Canucks always find ways to fuck things up and make it harder on themselves. And quite honestly there's nothing I've seen in the past 2 games from the Kings that's wow'd me including their goaltending. Go up a couple goals and we'll see if the Kings can win a game.

All i know is that the PHX vs. CHI game tonight was 10x better than the stupid VAN vs. LAK game last night.

Fingers crossed for a win tomorrow. And Schneider being in net to boost the front line. Oh, and also no more SHG

Good rant although I think if they lose tomorrow, it's pretty much all over. And I still think they would have walked all over SJ (or Dallas had they made it).

I always thought LA Kings were the worst of the 3 potential opponents for Vancouver... but like I have been saying for months, my hopes weren't high for this year anyway, sorry to say. Since January they haven't given us ANY reason to think they would go on any sort of a run this year. So while I'm disappointed, I am not at all shocked. The people who thought they were "saving it for the playoffs" are probably a lot more pissed about their performance though (which is why I have been trying to say what a stupid idea that is)

Yeah the PHX vs CHI game was insane. Heck, all of the playoff games have been 10x better than the VAN vs LAK games

Just googled Weber's WWE move on Zetterberg. Wow, that's not even hockey. Getting fined $2500 is bullshit. Bertuzzi should have done a Stone Cold Stunner on Weber in game 2 instead of that medicore follow up fight.

They need to show some emotion and desparation today. I've been watching all the other games, and there is several fights and big hits. The Canucks havent engaged them selves in any of that. They have to be the game changers. they have to be the ones to make the first move, and set the tone on the game. If Kassian is going to ride the pine for 57 minutes, you may as well throw him out there to dummy some one and let him sit in the box.

You guys keep calling Kesler's year a "fluke" but the fact of the matter is that ever since he had hip surgery, his game has never been the same.....My point being that instead of calling last year a fluke, I would blame his poor performance this year on his injury...

This. Most people here never played competitive, hit hockey after a major injury that required surgery. You are never quite the same.

^ not to mention we have three players in that same situation: Kesler, Raymond, Malhotra. Then add the fact that Henrik is missing Daniel.. and yeah. BUT, despite all of this, the Canucks ARE capable of beating the Kings. I just hope they freaking start showing who's the better team.

Yes. Yes I am.

Whoever wins tonight wins the series.

Go Nucks!

K I'm sorry but to me being a true fan and not a bandwagonner means you get behind your team; cheer and believe in them until it's over, not just when they're winning and doing good. I don't care that my heart was broken with the loss of the Stanley cup last year; I still go on to cheer for the team.
Unfortunately a lot of people have kind of lost hope after last year and not really cheering; I'm sure the players know their fans aren't behind them as much as they were last year and it prob isn't helping them push harder.

That being said; I will cheer for them tonight as wholeheartedly as ever and continue to do so until they are out of the series. I still have faith in our boys

I haven't lost hope, and I definitely am not openly CHEERING for the Canucks right now. I won't stand up and cheer when they score a goal in today's game simply because I don't want to get my hopes up so high, only to have my heart broken...Do I still expect them to win tonight? For sure; Do I think they can still win the series? Without a doubt....but I won't be up and cheering again until we win game 3 and take the lead in game 4....I'm simply far too stressed to be CHEERING right now.....
