Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 4 - Canucks @ Sharks
The Vancouver Canucks try to get back on track in Game 4 and carry over their improved play from the third period of last game. They ended the game by doing a lot of things right but, boy, did they ever do a lot wrong to dig themselves a hole.
And they need to get themselves on track from the opening whistle.

Though these fine fellows deserve a commendation for their Terrence and Philip costumes, they definitely qualify as a group of odds and sods.

So it's looking pretty much like the NHL is coming back to Winnipeg.

Ok guys. We're only down by a goal. So listen, let's only take 7 more penalties and we'll be right back in this.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 3 - Cnaucks @ Sharks
Much like the Sharks did in Game 2, the Canucks lost the plot in Game 3. While the Sharks were too busy retaliating in Game 2 to bother playing hockey, the Canucks just threw themselves into a spiral of stupid penalties.
But despite being shorthanded TEN times, and losing TWO defensemen... the Canucks were one favourable bounce away from getting this game to overtime.
