Oh dear god. You know which commercial I'm talking about. There's two versions floating around there. One on the cheesy graphics and one about replays. I can only imagine the anger that commercial will summon by the time the Stanley Cup final series rolls around. I've seen it 12 times now, only 326 more to go.
I'm a little late with a recap, so there will be none. I'm trying to get caught up with life, but there's just SO MANY GAMES! 5 hours a day...glorious.
First of all, please enjoy this rather, well, I'm a little at loss for words to describe this photo of Shane O'Brien and Darcy Hordichuk. Davison and Vaananen also find this moment a little funny.
Few thoughts on the Canucks game
-Kesler was ridiculous - 6 hits, 4 blocked shots, 3 shots on net and lots of hustle
-Clearly too many penalties. There was no flow to the game because of it. Henrik Sedin's offensive-zone hooking penalty...you know that was gonna be a killer
-Roberto Luongo - great game, best save of the night came on the 5 on 3 PK on McDonald
-Refs calling too many penalties
-Bernier had a great game
-Wellwood made hits! Wooo
-Sundin needs to do more
-the 5 on 3 PK known on canucks.com as "The Kill" was huge. The Blues had 5 forwards on the PP. If you notice on the PP later, the coach switched to 3 forwards and 2 defencemen, guess he didn't like what he saw from the first period.
-KB - Tell's you about the Blues' mascot...and his blue b....
-Nucks Misconduct snipes this prank on Vaananen:
"Ossi Vaananen’s name plate in his locker stall had been replaced with former Canuck Esa Tikkanen. - via Canucks Report"
-PD has a story on how some fans were trying to write in TJ Oshie for mayor. And one actually wrote it on their ballot. And then took a photo of it. And is not in some legal trouble. For real.
Around the NHL
-The Calgary/Chicago game looked a like a regular season game. Did not have the same hustle that the Vancouver or San Jose/Anaheim game has
-the NHL suspended Carcillo for a game for the butt-ended hit on Talbot at the end of the game
1 win down. 15 to go.
