Crown of Thorns: Canucks drop 3-2 SO decision to Kings

"Luongo earned them a single point," admitted John Shorthouse at the end of tonight's broadcast of the Vancouver Canucks and Los Angeles Kings game, the game itself was a 2-2 tie, though the Kings won in the skill competition and the bonus point went home with the white, black and silver visitors from tinseltown. There wasn't any hyperbole to Shorthouse's statement —the Canucks came out flat—and Luongo held the team in the game early with several terrific saves, was strong throughout the game, and made a pair of big saves in overtime before being beaten by Justin Williams and Mike Richards in the shootout.

Final score, I reluctantly accept, officially was 3-2 for the Kings. For detailed analysis, the Statistical Three Stars, and a Scoring Chance Table, please click past the jump.

You may think motorbikes and hockey have nothing in common, but the machine and the sport do have some subtle similarities. Think about it, both are fast, potentially dangerous and are idealized as "masculine." Also, Darren Dreger really likes both, and mothers often don't like to watch their children do either! Motorbikes, like hockey, are extremely sexy, and regardless of which one you decide to partake in: please wear a full cage.

Today I continue my weekly feature of me venting and raging on stupid crap happening with the Canucks, their fans and around the NHL. Two things about feature... 1) It will appear (hopefully) every Monday, and 2) It is blatantly ripped off from a stand-up bit from comedian Craig Anton. On either point, I make no apologies. Enjoy. Or don't.
