if we lose game 2...then you can safely say that a majority of canuckle heads will be panicking


Ya...agreed, and we need to win at home, at least one game!! We just NEED to stay out of the box, and stop making stupid penalties like shooting the puck over boards, and let LA get to the box. We need to make smart plays tomorrow. And the refs piss me off, I beat freaking LA paid them to make stupid calls against us. Seriously, it ALWAYS happens in the playoffs where the refs don't make calls, when stuff happen to us, but they make calls when WE do something. You don't see that in reg.season games much, ONLY in the playoffs, they make the stupidest calls.

Also, notice that they didn't play all that well at even strength. I mean two of their goals came on an extended 5-on-3 and a major so as long as we stay out of the box we can compete (heck with all those penalties we still managed to stay in the game). Kings' offence really is pathetic.


We just have to get past their Defence, and stay out of the box, and let them get to the box, and everything will be fine. We better play a hard fought battle tmr, and stay out of the box, or else, I'm done watching the playoffs.

I'm very confident we'll win this series. They got lucky. Plus they woke the beast. I'll be surprised if they get another W.

2010 against LA, I predicted we'd win game 1, lose games 2 and 3 and go on to win in 6. This year, I felt we might lose both the first two and win four straight. But who am I?

We were shorthanded for almost half the game, played terrible, and really only lost the game by 1 goal. We'll be fine.

I disappointed last night game, but will move on. It happened just because of several bad penalties. We have another games to prove ourselves. I believe in our player !

Well stated! Vancouver was lucky it was only 4/2. It was a fluke the puck didn't go in the net a few more times. I'm disappointed in Vancouver. Game 1 of a Stanley cup playoff game and they played like it was game 1 of the season. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge canucks fan. LA is a great team as well. They went into overtime 15 times this season where Vancouver hit that mark 6 times. LA's record/points overall in the standings doesn’t tell the tale of the tape so to speak. It wasn't the penalties that made Vancouver play bad because they were tired as Luongo tried to state in a post-game interview. They were playing poorly before that. Yes, they are the president’s trophy winner but they didn't play like it. I had high expectations for game 1 and was really disappointed. My only expectation for game 2 is they actually show up this time.

Setting points aside, It doesn’t matter what record they had in the regular season, The playoffs are a higher level of play…Almost like the next level above the NHL…A new season... Both teams are equal. It’s about who wants it more, who works the hardest. LA definitely wanted that game more! They were rewarded for their efforts.

I don’t expect Vancouver to win every game in every best of 7 series. I would hope however, that a team in a Stanley cup playoff would present an effort and play like they have the desire and drive to win. Every penalty they took was unnecessary. The snow shower from Kessler. They know this will be a penalty, so why do it? The shot to the head into the glass by Bitz. Are you even kidding me????

LA clearly did their homework on Vancouver. Vancouver looked unprepared for LA’s hard play, calculated passes and hits. You could see the confidents LA was building as the game went on. You could also see the frustration Vancouver was having with that and displayed it with a lot of yacking and dumb penalties.

Play like you at least want to win Vancouver. If you do that and still lose, I’m ok with that, at least you can say you gave it the old college try. You got into the verbal battles and lost. LA got inside your heads and you showed it. I didn’t see it effecting LA’s game. I saw them feeding off it gaining the momentum.

Make me eat my words in Game 2 Vancouver!!!!!

Many CDC members act like we have just been eliminated from the playoffs, its game 1
alot of members here need to take a deep breath and relax.

I know, the Kings winning game 1 acted like they already advanced onto the 2nd round
will be suprised at how long and intense this series will be.

I hope we play a more disciplined game on friday...go nucks go :towel: :towel:

Less penalties and we'll have them. Do you see that their energy was worn out by mid second period ?


Yes, but also our D also needs work . For a veteran bunch they played like a bunch of rookies. Especially 5 on 5 . If it wasn't for our goaltender the score would have been worse.

Yeah why panic? Canucks usually alternate between good and bad playoff years. This is the year for them to blow it. Expect them to lose to the Kings. All but one game against them in the regular season was a 1 goal game. Despite the big difference in playoff position, the Canucks can easily lose. With Edler playing the way he did on Wednesday, the Kings could close this out in five.

A fanbase full of Chicken little's. Happens every year. We are not going to win 82 games a year in the regular season or 16 straight in the Playoffs. Hockey is a marathon, not a sprint.

Some of our fans need to invest in some BC buzz to dull their mood swings.

Panic Schmanic!!!

Boston lost 3 out of 4 of their opening games last year. They still did alright. We will do the same and win the cup.
