It’s hard not to be down about the game. It’s hard not to get negative and fall into this downward spiral in regards to the team. You invest so much time emotionally in the game, in the team, and when it’s so close and down to the wire, you can’t help but get dragged down. It’s part of the game, it’s what loving this team is all about. They’re like a bad girlfriend, they love to break your heart. But, it’s not over yet. There’s still one more game to go before this series is decided, and if the Canucks have anything to say, they’re going to make sure there are at least two more.
Being a Canucks Fan comes with a heart attack and a defibrilator. It’s the customary package you have to acquire when you don the jersey of a fan. The Canucks love to make it interesting. If we know one thing about the Canucks, they never say Die, and they bring their best when their backs are against the wall.
The Canucks played their best game of the series in game 5, they were throwing bodies around like they were getting style points from a UFC fight, but again came up short because they just weren’t able to get enough shots on Khabibulin. It looks like the Canucks are getting better and better with each game so as it follows, game 6 should be better than the 5 before it. At this point, the bandwagon hasn’t emptyed, it’s been stunned. The shock is slowly wearing off, but no one expected a free ticket through to the third round. The best team in the league didn’t make it through, and even the best team in the East is having troubles.
Believe in blue. It’s not over til the Lord of the the Cumberband sings, and Mark Donnelly will sing in Game 7 on Thursady. Be there.
