FLAMES LEAD SERIES 3-2
If you missed last game, or maybe your PVR ran out early and um, maybe your house burnt down, there's a Game 6 to play tonight! The Canucks forced their way back into this series and it's about to get good. Vancouver wasn't lights out last game, but they controlled play, won the scoring chance battle, and came out on top.
Not allowing Michael Ferland to put his stamp on that game helped the Canucks play the way that makes them tough to beat. Henrik and Daniel Sedin were impressive, as was Bo Horvat, but the monkey on the back of Nick Bonino was the biggest and it's gone. How sweet it will be to see yet another Game 7 in Vancouver!

FLAMES LEAD SERIES 3-1
Have you calmed down yet? Have you stepped off the ledge? The Vancouver Canucks have dug themselves quite a hole in the series and haven't shown they can climb out. But you know what, it's time to suck it up, Canucks fans!
So what if they're down 3-1; its happened plenty of times in the team's history. We could all complain about how bad the team has been or why we REALLY DON'T CARE that Sam Bennett is 18 years old and awesome; this is Game 5, it's in Vancouver, and if you think it's over tonight you're dead wrong! We are all Canucks? You're FLIPPIN right we are!

FLAMES LEAD SERIES 2-1
This series has been quite truculent so far and after Game 3, the Flames are the more truculent group. An absolute 180 from Game 2, the Canucks were beyond looking for answers in the first game in Calgary, they didn't even have tickets to get inside!
It has been a see/saw battle and the way this series has gone, the pendulum SHOULD swing in the Canucks direction come the end of the 3rd period. 'Nucks just outplayed the Flames in Game 1, dominated them in Game 2, got dummied by the Flames in Game 3 and should get outplayed tonight but will squeak out a win. This has been a phenomenal series and the rivalry is back in a big way.

SERIES TIED 1-1
EDDIE, EDDIE, EDDIE!!! Now THAT was playoff hockey! The Canucks buried any memories from Game 1 and absolutely dominated the Flames from the opening puck drop. The series now shifts to the
wonderful city of Calgary for Game 3 this evening. The Flames are already playing hurt, and the hurts are attached to some of their VIPs (Very Insignificant Players....as far as we're concerned).
The Canucks brought the house in Game 2 and proved they can take this series over if they continue that style of play. Ronalds Kenins scored his first ever playoff goal and it was a big one. He brought the murders, but so did half of the 'Nucks as well. The brouhaha that ended Game 2 will probably make the Flames think twice about doing that again. Derek Dorsett, anyone?

FLAMES LEAD CANUCKS 1-0 IN SERIES.
Turn down for what? The Flames? To be honest, I've only heard that one line and I would assume Lil' Jon says "O-KAAAAAY!" at some point too (editor's note: he doesn't). So now you know two things: The Canucks are down 1-0 in their series against the Flames and I am not well versed in throat rapping by Lil' Jon.
We all have some thoughts about that first game. For me, mainly the Canucks played pretty well overall but scoring ONE goal isn't going to cut it. The goalies will easily be a big factor every game and it's going to take more than one Bo Horvat ricochet to beat the Flames four times. I hate to say it, but Calgary doesn't look that bad, the Canucks are going to have to really work now.
