Lord Stanley, You Are Kind To Us

It’s been a week since my last post, which means if I went another day, I would already be going against what I pledged to do at the very least: one blog post a week.

It’s also been 7 days since the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs began and our Vancouver Canucks set off on their quest for hockey’s holy grail.

Needless to say, the first week of the playoffs has been very entertaining. Of course it helps when your team is a heavy favourite, but as a hockey fan, there have been plenty of fantastic moments across the spectrum.

Just look at last night, sure the Canucks lost, but we saw a San Jose team come back from 4 goals down in the 2nd period, to win in overtime. No, I’m not a Sharks fan, but as a hockey fan, that’s exciting. I think it’d be cool to see LA win, not only because I hate San Jose, because I hate LA too, but because it would make for an easier route to the finals for us. We’ll see how LA rebounds tomorrow night.

Then there was game 3 of the Canucks series. This was what I think was the most exciting of our series so far. It wasn’t a rout, there were lots of goals and it essentially came down to the wire to see who was going to win. My sigh of relief when the final buzzer sounded was similar to that of a giant’s. I mean, those games are the most fun to watch. Sure, a beatdown is always good to see, but when it’s tight, and your figuratively, or literally, biting your nails at every pass and shot, those are good times.

And possibly the funniest part of these playoffs so far is the spouting of pukey words out of the mouth of the pot bellied, ranting and raving Bruce Boudreau. It was only a couple months ago he made some comments towards fans regarding their displeasure with the team’s play. I’m paraphrasing but he said something like If you don’t like it, don’t come. Good job Bruce, alienate your fans. But it was just last night that Brucey, Mr. Jack Adams 2008, insulted New York Rangers fans by not only calling MSG basically a piece of sh**, but by saying the fans were the quietest in the league. Now I haven’t been to MSG, and maybe he’s right, but that also wasn’t a good idea. He is just asking for Madison Square Garden to become the second coming of the Roman Coliseum. This guy needs to think twice before he speaks, I guess his mom never taught him that. But why would you provoke the Rangers fans? Tonight, they were chanting “CAN YOU HEAR US?” Can you Bruce? Can you hear them now? Goooood!

It’s all in the dramatic spirit that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and with the Canucks up 3-1 in their series right now, I’m very much looking forward to Lord Stanley bestowing upon us plenty more special Stanley Cup moments. History Will Be Made Canucks fans. History…will…be…made!
