Remember when the Flames beat the Canucks in Game 7 back in 2004? Of course you do, how could you forget?
Todd Bertuzzi was suspended, Dan Cloutier was injured, and the swashbuckler Ed Jovanovski was sitting in the penalty box when the baby giraffe Alex Auld surrendered the final goal. We lost. Martin Gelinas buried us and made us cry.

After the John Tortorella tire fire era, there was understandably a lot of apathy amongst the Canucks faithful going into this season. Let’s face it, they were no longer the team that could run the table like they did from 2009 to 2012 - a period which will undoubtedly be remembered as the golden age of Canucks hockey. In all honesty, the 2014-15 edition of the Canucks really couldn’t hold a candle those teams, but you know what? They weren’t the 2013-14 Canucks either.
