Holy crap that was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was sooo strange being the minority at a game! I have never seen the Canucks play anywhere other than Vancouver but there were a ton of fans there tonight thank god. It was crazy. When we scored you almost had to second guess yourself because the cheers were so mute, lol. Damn! I had soooo much fun!!!!!!!!!!
Bertuzzi scored and got an assist. Naslund got two goals and an assist and what about King? Holy crap that kid is on fire!!!!

I don't want to go to bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I my Canucks

Glad you had a fun time! I love going to hockey games. I once saw my favorite team, the Red Wings, play in Dallas. It's a hostile environment to go see your team in another city, but it's worth it!

Angel!! I hadn't seen this thread - sorry! I would have posted much sooner if I had. But, anyway, regarding the game...I was there with you in spirit. I watched it on Sportsnet Pacific. I wish I'd known you'd be at the game - I would have looked out for you!

The Canadiens looked tired and flatfooted, but the Canucks sure looked good. The 2nd goal by Naslund...are you kidding me???!! He always scores spectacular goals against the Canadiens, more specifically, Theodore. That guy can sure d-aaa-ngle. What a great diving pass by Morrison to get him the puck, too. That line is amazing.

I've seen the Canadiens in Montreal, too. Seeing a hockey game there is quite the experience, isn't it? It's almost a french carnival atmosphere. People playing violins, the crowd always involved. What a great hockey city...maybe the best.

Glad you had fun!

Oh, forgot to ask: What did you think of the Canucks' vintage uniforms? I think I like those ones better than the vintage home whites they used last week. The colours are very West Coast.

YAY!! You posted! First re. the uniforms I totally agree. The blue was beautiful and I have to say that Montreal's vintage uniforms were awesome too, way better than their present day ones.

The game was awesome. The first two periods were pretty intense but the Canucks were definately the dominating team. It was still nerve racking though. I couldn't believe that line, they were on fire! I wish I had tomorrow's game televised here. I am a junky and never get my fix! I should have pictures to post soon!!!

LOVE my Canucks!!

Oh I also agree about Montreal being a super hockey town. It is very much a carnaval atmosphere at the Bell Centre. There is so much going on all the time I think people go just for the fun of the experience sometimes rather than to watch hockey! lol
It was all about the game for me last night... and may I add, LOVE how much they play U2 at hockey games. Goodtimes.

Yeah, I see the Canadiens ripped off the Canucks by playing 'Streets' during he warm up. The Canucks use a looped mix of the original with no vocal, however. The Canadiens use a live mix, I think. Maybe the superbowl half time show? Do you know? If the Canadiens start using 'The National Anthem' by Radiohead during their pre-game light show, then I will start to wonder if they truly are ripping off the Canucks.

I also heard a lot of U2 songs during the game, which is always cool. 'Desire' and 'Elevation' come to mind.

haha! the was the first thing I said to my friend when "Streets" came on, I was like 'hey!! they are ripping off the Canucks!!' Oh well. It wasn't a live version and it wasn't the looped one the Canucks use during playoffs it was just plain old "Streets". Before that though they played a remix of "Beautiful Day" ... and yeah they played "Desire" and "Elevation". Four songs at one game. Good job.

I didn't take this picture obviously, *care of the Canucks.com* but it's an awesome picture. I'll have mine to share tomorrow.
