The Vancouver Canucks’ 8-1 loss to Boston was a lopsided affair. I couldn’t remember a worse loss in the Stanley Cup Finals off the top of my head, so I decided to dig to find out how that loss ranked historically.

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.

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.
