Well, as a Leafs fan I have an unending hatred for the Sens and their children I'm not sure about the rest of Canada...

Although, come to think of it, most Canadians outside of Ontario hate the Leafs as well

I don't think it's hate, it's just that this team has been such a letdown year after year after year in the playoffs. It's hard to give them the respect or benefit of the doubt that they will win the Stanley Cup.

Although, for some it's truly hate.

Nope, it's hate.

for the Canucks. Luongo played amazing only to lose by being distracted by the call for a hit ( I didn't think it was a penalty hit, the dude was bent over with his head at elbow level reaching for the puck, thus a bone-crunching hit) and not staying focused on the play. Sucky ending for a tough series.

That's the first Canucks game I've watched in years - most of their players didn't impress me but Luongo is absolutely amazing! He singlehandedly carried that game tonight 2 goals on 62 shots! Way to go!

I just hope people don't start dumping on Luongo for letting the goal to lose the series. I mean it was a horrible goal under any circumstances let alone 2ndOT to decide a playoff series. But he was the best Canuck player in the playoffs by far. He will be an even better goaltender after this experience. I heard people ragging him for the giveaway goal behind the net a couple of games ago. I said "Luongo is the best player on the Canucks and hardly deserves any criticism since he was the only player on the team who was playing like someone who wanted to win the Cup unlike the Suckdin twins."

Sixty saves or so this game and all I will hear at work tomorrow is Canuck fans dumping on Luongo for the last goal. I am not even a Canuck fan but I will straighten those people out.

Well said, trev. Luongo is the reason we even made it that far.

I didn't start thinking a win tonight would be possible until the first OT. That was a great period.

I don't have much else to say. I'm disappointed, and pretty frustrated.

Dark side


And I just happened to be looking at the new Star Wars stamps that the USPS are putting out later this month...

Coincidence ~ I think not

Well, that game cost me $150.

(The sportsbooks were giving Vancouver 2-1 odds to win. I don't care if they're down 3-1, playing on the road and have a bunch of guys banged up -- no playoff team is ever less than a 33% shot to win a game.)

The Canuks looked really misrable out there, they had a 5 on 3 power play for over a minute and did squat with it...

They basically stood still for most of the night and watched Luongo work his ass off...

Jeremy Roenick just said "Shit-aki mushrooms happens" on TSN in reference to Ray Emery missing the team plane to NJ.

Pierre McGuire sounds shocked that the 2 refs missed a too many men on the ice call against the Rangers. Where has he been? That sounds like normal NHL officiating to me.

Well...

My two most despised teams in the West are going head to head (Anahiem vs Detroit ) so I won't be watching any of those games...

Ottawa and Buffao though, That oughta be pretty good series as long Buffalo doesn't choke against the Rangers today. Considering the battles these teams had during the regular season it could be interesting...
