The Vancouver Canucks are into the final four of the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in 17 years. Since 1994, the Canucks have never made it past the second round. In fact, in those 17 years, the Canucks only made it to the Conference Semi-finals 5 times. So it is a tremendous accomplishment for the Canucks.

But as was pointed out on TEAM 1040 last night, the Vancouver Canucks are now only half way to their goal.

Canucks Top Predators, Advance To Conference Finals

With the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators, the 2010-11 season is already one of the three most successful in franchise history. Only twice before have the Canucks advanced as far as the third round – the first time in 1981-82, where they were swept in the Finals by the New York Islanders powerhouse, and then again in 1993-94, which culminated in heartbreak as the New York Rangers won a seven game series for the Stanley Cup.

Before we move on to the third round, however, I thought it would be worth looking at a couple of things that interested me from the second round.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 3 - Canucks @ Predators

Let's be clear... the Nashville Predators didn't win Game 5. The Canucks lost that game by handing it to the Predators with a comedy of errors and careless defensive play. While the notion of again crossing the continent to play one game, losing sleep and rest and healing time, and throwing off schedules, is largely unpalatable, the good news for the Canucks is that Detroit and San Jose are doing the same thing.

So will the Canucks take advantage of this new opportunity and finally kill off the Predators?
