Picture 4

I had planned to cover an important topic that’s being brought to light in recent times with this week’s column. Needless to say the events that unfolded yesterday in Ottawa put that on the back burner.

As we reflect on yesterday’s events and let the questions of “Why?” and “How?” run through our heads, keep in mind and take solace that we live in one of the greatest countries in the world where events like these are few and far between. Take solace in the men and women who are protecting this country and its citizens by risking their life running towards the gunfire. Take solace that our media focused on getting the facts straight, not sensationalizing the drama and producing news in an articulate manner.

Acts of terrorism are not an everyday occurrence for us Canadians. However, the way our country responded made it look like this is just another day and unflinchingly we remain together a powerful nation. We have set the bar and we will continue to keep the true north strong and free. More after the jump.

Canucks Army Postgame: Oops.

There are some games when everything goes perfectly right - all your stretch passes become tape-to-tape breakaways, all your shots from the high slot go bar-down, all bounces off the back boards land flush on someone's stick, all your defensive reads are perfect, and all your opponents are just a step out of position. Well, the Dallas Stars had one of those games tonight. The Vancouver Canucks did not.

The game was over before it really could get going, as Dallas capitalized on seemingly every single chance they had, potting six goals before the game was even halfway finished, en route to a 6-3 win. Read past the jump for a recap.
