In junior high or high school voting always seemed to be a popularity contest. You had the hot chick or the jock running for class president even though in most cases they were more interested in winning, rather than actually doing anything. I'm sure there were some who ran, and won, who really wanted to make a difference and improve the cafeteria food, or change the dress code. Today, I'm sure the Pres. argues for the right to update your facebook status in math class, or to wear belly shirts or other serious matters.
The scary part is that some of you probably voted in junior high, but you don't vote now. I don't care who you won't for to be honest, and I have no interest in trying to influence your vote, but if the country was to put a sports slant on voting I bet many of you would get to the polls before they close.

Fancy a listen to some Canucks related Radio programming while you wait for Game 3 to get underway tomorrow night? Ian Walker from the Vancouver Sun recently stopped by NationRadio to talk shop and we thought you might want to have a listen.

If the Canucks can get Rinne to flop and slide (see above) they might score more than 1 goal.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 2 - Predators @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks slugged out a win in Game 1. It was boring, it was uneventful, it was a battle of two Vezina nominees. It was ugly but it was a win. And in the playoffs, it doesn't matter how you win. It just matters THAT you win.
So what do they do to make it more convincing?

Dan, why so worried? You're hugging Higgy and he just scored a goal!
It's all good, baby.

Game Review: Western Conference Semfinal Game 1 - Predators @ Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks shook off any hangover from beating the Blackhawks in the opening round and came out to play against the Predators. It's just a shame that Nashville didn't do the same.

"Ooooow! That goal hurt my foot! But it was sooooo worth it."
"Look, we are really twins. We raise our hands and sticks in the SAME WAY. Isn't that weird?"

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Semifinal Game 1 - Predators @ Canucks
There is no rest for the wicked. The Vancouver Canucks get right into Round 2 with their opening game tonight against the Nashville Predators.
Can they dial it up again with such a quick turnaround, or will they be so gassed after their series with the Blackhawks that they let this game get away from them?
