Cannucks vs Hawks!
« on: April 26, 2011, 10:01:56 AM »

Well, maybe a little late on this thread, but for those in the USA that follow hockey, especially the ones in Illinois and of course Cananda..........who wins tonight?  Obviously one of the greatest recent rivalries in todays hockey reaches the boiling point!  The Chicago Blackhawks that have frustrated and at some points humiliated the Vancouver Cannucks the past 2 post seasons have an opportunity to give them everlasting case of Herpes tonight with a game 7 victory?  Now, I have lived in Michigan for the last 6 years, born and raised as a Red Wing hater and a long time BlackHawk fan, PICKED Vancouver to win it all this year with their off season aquisitions.  I even called this series to Vancouver in 5.  Not much of BlackHawk fan Eh?  I absolutley am, but I also am a hockey fan and watch as many games on Centre Ice that time will allow.  Never in my wildest dreams would this scenario have ever played out!  The only way this would be topped in my book win or lose, is if it were happening here against Detroit!

So, do the Cannucks fade away as a Presidents Trophy curse?  Does the determination and experience of a young Championship team prevail?  I can only imagine the headlines in the Vancouver Sun this spring and summer, non-stop badgering if the Cannucks lose a 3rd time to the Hawks, especially after winning the 1st 3 games and going up 3-0 in the series? 

Let the threads begin!

I think Montreal, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia are all just as shocked in the east.  I LOVE PLAYOFF HOCKEY!  :apple:

They'd be even more shocked if they actually MADE the playoffs!  :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2: :oops:

I'd rather see the Sharks play Chicago versus a rested Red Wing team so I am hoping that Chicago wins.

Told my buddies two weeks ago that Luongo would fold like a cheap suit. Was a little (a lot) worried to start out, but now I'm confident that the Hawks will pull it off.

I share Wild tickets and ended up with the last Dallas game and was kind of dreading going. Thought they'd choke big time and let Dallas in. Obviously, couldn't be happier that they helped out the Blackhawks.

I was hoping that they'd get (at least) to the second round so the weather improves and the wife and I could possibly ride there for a game and see the HD museum on the way back home.

Sidestory: When Minnesota came back and knocked off Colorado (when Andrew Brunette scored in OT on Patrick Roy) in their only playoff run, I was lucky enough to be sitting on the glass, right behind the goal--two down from the goal judge.

Went with buddies to game 6 in St. Paul, when they won in OT, I was ready to go to Denver and scalp tickets for game 7 the next night. None of my buddies believed that I'd go. I kept telling them "game 7, on the glass." Went outside of McGovern's and called the Denver ticketmaster number--got a recording saying they were offering tickets for Round 2, Denver against the Canucks. This of course pissed me off to the point that I almost had to go.

I own a little bar two hours west of the metro. I called my buddy that was bartending that night. He said he'd go. Two other guys that happened to be sitting at the bar when I called said they'd go. Picked them up at three in the morning (after shutting down the bars in St. Paul) and road-tripped to Denver. We found a hotel, crashed for a bit, then made our way to the arena.

A reporter from the Rocky Mountain News saw us walking up to the Arena in our Wild jerseys--he ended up doing his column about us. He directed us to the area where the scalpers "work." Haggled with a scalper for a while before he finally asked us what exactly we were looking for. He told us the game wasn't sold out and we could get on-the-glass seats inside.

Needless to say, on the glass, right behind the net is where we ended up. Most of my game-6 buddies watched the game back home in my bar. The entire place went nuts all night because we were on TV every time there was a scrum or replay near the net. And of course we were right there when he scored the winner in OT.

My brother still can't get over the fact that I called "on the glass" the night before, and Brunette scored the biggest goal in Wild history (so far) right in front of me.

Nothing like NHL playoff hockey! Go Blackhawks!

good story

Not trying to hijack the thread, but I left out another part. We were in an establishment prepping for the game and one of the guy's (that tagged along) cell phone rang. It was his girlfriend wondering where he was. He said he decided to go to the Wild game. She said "so you'll be home in a few hours..." He replied "Uh, the game's in Denver."

Go Blackhawks!

NO highjack worries!  I have a feeling this one will go for a while, or at least for a day or so before it wears out?  Did I hear a San Jose fan say they would rather play the Blackhawks versus a rested Red Wings team?  The Wings would be rested til the end of the 1st period and then they would be old and tired again. Ha!  Besides, we finished (Hawks) the sweep, we didn't let the team back in to tie it up!  Why would San Jose want to face the Blackhawks again?  Personally, I hope so because i will be in San Jose on 5/8!!!

I had killer seats for free 5 off the glass for game 7 in San Jose, I guess I need to make other plans for that night, not that I'm complaining!! I am just hoping that we can make it past round 2 for once! Go Sharks :pepper: :pepper: :pepper:

Well, I wish I would have found this post before the game was over. I have been a huge Canucks fan for years and have been really pissed about how the last three games have went, Chicago is good but if Crawford ain't standing on his head they ain't winning, it was all the Canucks could do tonight to beat them, Crawford isn't a miracle worker but he damn near won the series for them, thank god they are done with it...

Yes, for the moment, I am a heartbroken Hawks fan.....but, in my pool, I picked Vancouver in the post season along with Washington so I still have something to happy about.  This was without doubt one of the most entertaining series I can remember, and as a die hard Hawk fan, we have to be excited about next September.  We were not supposed to even be here, but to take hands down, the most mechanically successful team to overtime in game 7 is one heck of an accomplishment.  Hats off to the Cannucks, most teams would have folded after giving up a shorty with 3.42 left in the game, they came out in overtime on a mission and they deserve the game and series!  What I can't stand is Q putting Keith and Seabrook together on the ice, and of course, they were on the ice for both Vancouver goals!  Next year, we have something to look forward to, some of our trades this season will pay big dividends.  We have no salary cap issues and we should be able to bring this team back and replace some of the weak links with some more minor league prospects.  Goaltending is solid, defense is solid, we can use a good 2-way center to fill the 4th line.  Pisani & Johnson are done, they don't have the speed to get it done.  Sharks will dispose of the Wings in 5, and the same will happen with the Preds.  Cannucks will finish off the Sharks in 6, and I think Washington will find its way out of the east against the Flyers.  That series will depend on which goalie gets pulled out of the game the least.

Bummer - The defense seemed to do everything they could to blow the game with turn overs. Hjalmarsson might have all the guts in the world in throwing his body in front of a puck, but God his turnovers are maddening.  Without Crawford, they would have never got this far. Oh well, we had a chance and the better team won.   :-X
