Looks like this is my big chance to realise a long-time ambition and start a game-day thread.
I think predictions have become part of the tradition, so 5-1 Canucks. Kopitar starts the scoring early with a shot from a bad angle that takes a funny bounce. Kesler answers first for the Canucks, followed by a barrage from what we used to enjoy calling the Swedish Touch line : one each from Daniel, Henrik, and Naslund. Salo scores late on a power play.
