Canucks say goodbye to Nassau Coliseum with convincing 4-0 victory

For the final time in franchise history, the Vancouver Canucks visited the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Sunday night to face the New York Islanders. 

The Coliseum, a concrete blister in the middle of a parking lot in Uniondale, NY, was the site of Vancouver's losses in Game 1 (an instant classic overtime thriller) and Game 2 of the 1982 Stanley Cup Final - a series in which the overmatched Canucks were ultimately swept by the dynastic Islanders of the early 80s. 

So Vancouver's 4-0 victory over New York's other, other team on Sunday brought with it a sense of closure, a spot of karmic payback. The reverse sweep as it were. On the other hand, the club lost Ryan Miller to injury, and any crowing about karma at the moment seems misguided in the extreme.
