It's time for the Canucks to be David and conquer Goliath once and for all.
The Vancouver Canucks were embarrased out of Rogers Arena last night after another dismal effort. In four straight periods, between the start of the 2nd period of Game 4 and the end of the 2nd period in Game 5, the Canucks were outscored 11-1.
As a result... this morning, I had the following conversation on BBM with my friend. Needless to say, neither of us were happy.

Last night, the Canucks failed to eliminate the Chicago Blackhawks for the second consecutive game. Also, for the second consecutive game, they not only failed to win but they failed to keep the score within five goals, as the Blackhawks chased Luongo from the net and routed Vancouver in convincing fashion.
What does shot quality tell us about the way the series has gone? Are the Canucks more porous than they were early in the series, or should the blame fall on goaltending?

One big positive about the possibility of the Phoenix Coyotes returning to Winnipeg is that Edmonton would no longer be perceived by players as the second-least desirable destination in the NHL, which it now is.

Hansen, go smack some Blackhawks ass. They've been very naughty boys.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Quarterfinal Game 5 - Blackhawks @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks will try once again to close out their opening round series with the Chicago Blackhawks tonight as the two teams go head-to-head at Rogers Arena tonight. The Canucks were embarrassed in Game 4 and will want to return to the form that they showed in their two home games to start the series. And to be a whole lot less sucktastic.
