We did it! Missing the playoffs 2 of the past 4 years really left a sour note in my mouth… yearning for more hockey leading further into April and May.
This year however, and in dramatic fashion no less, we are the champs once again.
Not a huge fan of our 6th seed matchup (Columbus), what with their rookie goalie sensation Steve Mason, but they have less post-season experience than us, so I’m hoping that, along with home-field advantage, will give us some moment to at least push through to the second round (ideally a cup of course).
Records made along the way (Luongo with 9 franchise-record shutouts and 11 home wins in a row to name a couple) have strengthened my beliefs that May is for watching Canucks hockey, not camping and boating ;-)
Them’s can wait until later into June.
Cheers boys, and thanks!
