Today we look at the top 5 games that the Canucks should have won, but managed to let it slip anyway.

The first in a special summer series, CanucksArmy.com author Patrick Johnston will write whatever comes to mind about a random Canucks hero. What is a hero? Patrick's criteria is super secret, but maybe, just maybe, if you pay close attention, you'll figure it out!
Nearly the first in a long line of try-hards that I came like for one reason or another, Steve Bozek is memorable to me for one moment. A quick search shows me that the Canucks clinched their playoff berth for the 1991Stanley Cup playoffs on the very last day of the season: March 28, 1991, a 3-2 overtime win vs Winnipeg. What isn't mentioned was that Steve Bozek scored the goal and a ten year-old boy went nuts in his room, having been listening quietly on his radio, under strict order not to disturb his sleeping younger brother in the room next door. From then on, I thought Steve was a pretty damn cool guy.
