There, there, Canucks fans. You'll be okay.
We fans like to think that we have a connection to the team. A big, direct connection such that our mundane, daily actions somehow have an effect on the success of the Canucks. This feeling gets amplified ten-fold during the playoffs, as stress and anxiety levels reach feverish heights and we become focused on nothing but the next game and, hopefully, another victory.
This year, Canucks fans' dreams were dashed again far too early. But don't worry. It's not your fault.

I love the scrutiny, passion, analysis and most of all the emotion that we experience during the NHL playoffs. The hockey is awesome even though Albertans had to enjoy it all on TV, and now Canuck fans are feeling like Sami Salo in game five, but this postseason is still the most riveting I’m witnessed in years.

I don't feel like writing anything today. I doubt anyone feels like reading anything today. Too depressed, too heartbroken, too disgusted and just too angry. Can't do any analyzing as to what went wrong, don't want to do any prognosticating as to what the future could or should hold. I'm not ready to even think about all the good things this season had to offer like first time scoring champs and green men advantages.

Can the Canucks do what the Canadiens did last night and MAKE IT SEVEN?
The Vancouver Canucks staved off elimination in Game 5, but face the same fate tonight as they host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6. This time, the Canucks play the Blackhawks at home, where they have not fared well against Chicago. To stay alive, they'll have to reverse that trend.

After a 7-4 defeat at the hands of the Blackhawks, the Canucks headache is getting worse. Will the dark cloud looming over Canuck nation finally blow away?
Vancouver have certainly put themselves in a very difficult position, but a comeback is still possible, with a win tomorrow night the tables can be turned, the battle is not over its only just begun. If your feeling like the season is reaching its course remember what enabled the boys in blue to reach the playoffs in the first place. Perhaps a little song will improve your mood?
