As I'm sure you've heard, Vancouver plays what could be their final game of the season tonight after falling behind 3 games to 1 to the Calgary Flames. It's very nearly the worst case scenario for the Canucks as they find themselves in an incredibly tough spot and are without a doubt on the ropes.
Still, the series isn't over until it's over, and Vancouver has a fighting chance. But with no room for error, every single thing has to go perfectly in order for the Canucks to advance to the second round of the playoffs.
Here are five things that have to happen for Vancouver to win the next three games and come all the way back to knock off the Calgary Flames.

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!
