In this series you can look at stats and claim that Henrik has been the best forward, but best is a relative term. Their best hasn’t been good enough, and that’s why the Canucks are down in the series. Daniel hasn’t done anything of mention so far, and Burrows who’s our new first line winger has been silent.

Tonight, backs against the wall, this is where teams are made. You don’t become legends, or go down in history, without facing adversity. The Canucks have been with their backs against the wall before. When they were sitting in 11th they faced a whale of a task just to get into that 8th and final playoff spot and their resurgance vaulted them into 3rd.

Luongo has been inconsistent at best this series, and the Sedins and Burrows have played well below par. Bieksa badly needs to redeem himself, and Sundin still needs to elevate his play. Sundin was heralded as this playoff icon, so far we’ve seen flashes of what he can do, but the consistency is lacking. The defence needs to lock down completely, and the Canucks need to find a way to get as many pucks on net. They’ve been outshot all 5 games in this series so far. It doesnt matter where you shoot from, if you get the puck on net, good things happen. We’ve seen it before, it happens. But in this game, it doesnt matter who comes to play, who says what, or who does what. At the end of the day, the only stat that matters is the final score.

This is one game. This is where Canucks fans find out if this is our year. This is the game where for 60 minutes Canucks fans will be sitting on the edge of their seats fulfilling every pre-game, in-game, and post-game superstition and game ritual they can. And when tonight is over, after the cards have been dealt and the victor determined, if there is a Canucks game on Thursday, they’ll do it all again.

    Richard,

    Heading over to the United Center for tonight’s tilt. Assuming I don’t get my a** kicked, hope to have some good stories tomorrow. Bottom line, the better team has won each game. Our guys need to be the better team.

    Game five. The referee should have been wearing a Chicago
    jersey.Blind to every infraction Chicago players made.Making questionable calls on Canucks.
    Game six Chicago makes dirty hits referee ignores them. Canucks take penalties for lesser offences. Chicago scores on the power play. Repeat. Why even play the game, the outcome is predetermined! Off goes the T.V.

    May the now choose a real Captain, one that comes to play in the big game, ( like Toews ) not a whiner that sits on the bench and puts his head in his ass rather than rallying the troups.
