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.

    I’m not familiar with this Lord of Cumberband, but if the Queen of Cumberland shows up at the game, I’m scared. She’s one bad ass ferry.

    I know it’s not over, but what will it take to convince the Canucks to start throwing more pucks at Khabibulin? It almost seems that the team gets it’s lead with pressure, and figures the best way to hold it is the exact opposite – hence the limit shot tallies.

    As the series goes longer, the young legs of Chicago seem to be getting faster while Vancouver seems to be slowing down.

    Luongo needs to stand on his head as he is being outplayed by Khabibulan.

    Ive said it many times…..the team that shoots the most, scores the most…its the law of averages.Loungo is not being outplayed, hes facing far more shots than khabibulan. We need to shoot more, palin and simple. The hits are going well, the shots on goal are not.
    We struggle to do both.
    The Canucks can still do this. We have done in years gone by, we will do it again.
