The Vancouver Canucks are two games up in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Winnipeg Jets are closer to taking the ice and potentially making them selves an instant contender for a playoff run. And still stalwart Oilers fans like the one above find a way to continue to represent.

Big ups to @NHL_imagineer for the dope picture and @seancollins11 for being such a hardcore dude and being in the picture.

It's NationRadio.

Game Day Recon: Stanley Cup Final Game 3 - Canucks @ Bruins

The Vancouver Canucks have scored some improbable goals at some improbable times during the Stanley Cup Final. Lucky for them, they are taking those improbable goals to Boston with a 2-0 series lead.

Will the Canucks get their power play going? Can the Canucks continue to rely on timely goals? Will home ice prove to be the missing ingredient for the Bruins to win their first game? Will the Canucks take a real stranglehold on the Stanley Cup Final?

From the stellar ratings, to the nicknacks in Harper's office - Canada clearly cares about the Canucks. Whether you're rooting for the Canucks, or obsessing over your hatred for their greasy, diving ways – you're watching the games, and you have an opinion. So they don't “represent you” - of course they don't – unless you were born in Vancouver, moved there, or developed an affection for the team through the osmosis of knowing, dating, or working with a huge fan. Obviously, the only team that represents Canada is the national team. Either way, Canada cares what happens to this team, and lots of neutral fans are rooting for them – that's just fact.

It's hard to imagine a Stanley Cup Finals game with more plot lines than Saturday's game two between the Bruins and the Canucks. Between Manny's return to action, the Bruins PP finally finding the twine, and Alex Burrows' epic heel turn, there was also a wildly entertaining game of hockey played. History, and the fans of both teams, will only remember how the game ended - but that obscures the fact that through 45 minutes of play - the Boston Bruins were taking it to the Canucks, and comfortably carrying the play.
