well i guess since the blues dont even have a bandwagon, since the fans are with them through think and thin, if you want to jump on a bandwagon it has to be the Canuck's

That must be 67th time you've contradicted yourself in this thread.

'We knew they could do it': Canucks fans

Canucks fans hit Robson Street last night, honking horns and waving flags in celebration of team's playoff push.

With the Vancouver Canucks leading the St. Louis Blues by a goal as the seconds ticked down in yesterday's NHL playoff, there was a bit of a hush in Milestone's Restaurant on Robson Street.

When the Canucks hung on to win 4-3, there was a loud cheer -- especially from a table shared by friends Christiane Low and Jane Picciano, both downtown residents and "huge fans" of the team.

"Our hearts were just racing," said Low, 27, as their heroes were pushed to the wall by the feisty Blues for the second game in a row. But neither doubted their squad.

"We knew they could do it," said Low.

"No question," added Picciano, 34.

Picciano knows the Canucks weren't perfect last night and made "a couple of bad mistakes but those will always happen."

"You have to learn from those. I think they're back [to playing well]."

Picciano knows her neighbourhood as well as she knows the Canucks. She said it wouldn't take long for the celebration to begin -- and it didn't.

At first it was just a car or truck or two with horns honking and flags waving. Within 15 minutes, though, there were cavalcades of vehicles crammed with fans shouting and honking their horns, waving flags and jerseys.

People on the streets started cheering back. -- including Lonnie Brezina, 27, and Mitch Waller, 26, who had watched the game with a crowd at the Sony Store on Granville Street.

"It was tense in the last few minutes," said Brezina between whooping cheers.

"It took a while to get the momentum but it's ours now," added Waller. "It's hockey time!"

They'll do it all again tomorrow for the seventh and deciding game.

"We'll be down here Tuesday night," said Waller.

"Along with another million people," grinned Brezina.

Among those travelling downtown will be New Westminster's Ron Williams, 37, who has got a bit of a tradition going.

He went to a Canucks game and the team lost. Williams, whose truck was proudly flying four Vancouver flags, subsequently went to the Shark Club twice and Vancouver won both times. You can guess where he's going to be tomorrow.

"The atmosphere is totally awesome," said Williams.

And the fans are totally excited.

The point is they knew they could come back all along. That's not exactly a bandwagon mentality!

And your point? Have you been taking polls to see who was behind them from the beginning to prove your case? Uhhm, no.

Bwahaha! Okay, Chizip - this arguing is getting ridiculous! It's all very amusing, though. It's been quite funny, but I really should grab a hold of the day before it completely gets away. Talk to you tomorrow!

That's funny, my polls are exactly the same for St. Louis fans. We must have switched them somehow. Everytime I watch the Vancouver local news, all I see are people honking horns and painted in Canucks paraphalania. You're figures must be for your team.
