CHB Contest: Win Game Two Canucks Playoff Tickets!

Last season’s run to the Stanley Cup Final outlined a number of different players who’s performance dictated the success of the team. Alex Burrows against the Blackhawks. Ryan Kesler against the Predators. Or Kevin Bieksa against the Sharks. We could even say that Luongo’s performance against the Bruins was a difference maker as he shut out the Bruins twice in the Stanley Cup Finals. We discover every playoff series that a player stands out from the rest.

So as we watch the puck drop today in the Western Conference Quarterfinal, who will it be this go-round?

Great Save Luongo

In a series where the first goal may dictate the games winner, my money is on the play of Roberto Luongo. While the Kings were ranked 29th in goals for over the season, they were ranked 2nd in goals against – and we’ve all seen that the Canucks have been more focused on the process than they were on offense. And when you mix a little Vigneault with a little Sutter, you’ve got yourself the recipe for a war of attrition.

So who do you think the “difference maker” will be for the Canucks?

If you tell us, we and our friends at the Rosedale on Robson have a pair of Game Two playoff tickets to give away.

To enter:

  • For one entry: In the comments section of this post, tell us which Canucks player you think will be the difference maker in this series. (Make sure you enter your email address when you log-in so we can contact you if you win.)
  • For a bonus entry – Tweet the following:

I entered and RT to win Game 2 #Canucks playoff tickets from @canuckshockey @RosedaleRobson & @lyteforce #CHB

You have until 3:00 PM on Thursday, April 12th to enter. Once the contest closes, we will randomly pick one lucky entrant who will become the proud owner of a pair of upper bowl tickets to Game Two on Friday, donated by our friends at the Rosedale on Robson. You must be able to pick the tickets from the Rosedale on Robson (833 Robson St. at Hamilton) prior to puck drop.

What are you waiting for?

  31. Bailey says:

    I think the obvious answer is most likely Kesler or one of the Sedins (as my hubby would say) but im not a technical fan per se, so i would go with Burrows…he is cute, fast, funny and he got the first goal last night! 😛    (Baileyh82)

     Ryan Kesler will be the difference maker.

    Alex Burrows

    I’m going to go with Hansen.  I think this series is going to be all about the secondary scoring, and Hansen is going to be our guy.

  35. chadkun says:

    Roberto Luongo,because he’s going to give the team a chance to win every night if he plays like he did in Game 1.

    Lapierre is going to get under the Kings skin before the series is over.

    Maxim Lapierre For Sure 🙂

    Lapierre will definitely be a difference maker. He knows how to get under everyones skin and he steps up his game every chance he gets. Hes a great asset to the team for sure.

  41. Timmy Wong (@timmywong11) says:

    Kes needs to be the man in game 2.
