Game Day Recon: Stanley Cup Final Game 4 - Canucks @ Bruins
The Vancouver Canucks were absolutely obliterated in Game 3. And so was Nathan Horton. And Aaron Rome is done, as a result. While the Canucks adjust their defense to play without Rome and Hamhuis, that is the least of their problems.
They have to get most aspects of their game back on track. Quickly.

It's with a heavy-heart that I write this game review. Last night sucked, all around. If you're a Bruins fan, the 7 goal victory probably provides some consolation, but my guess is you'd trade 6 of those goals for a healthy Horton going forward. The writers at Canucksarmy wish Horton a speedy, full recovery and our thoughts are with him, his family and his teammates this afternoon. We've gone on record many times criticizing the NHLs, and the NHLPAs abject failure to protect their players from head-injuries – so despite Rome's harsh punishment, we applaud the league for having the stones to do the right thing in this instance.

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.
