Great. GREAT game to watch!
One point I wasn't happy with, when the Canucks scored the 3rd goal to go ahead 3-2 with 9 min left in the 3rd, the crowd started chanting "Oilers suck!" What a retarded chant, if the Oilers suck, what does that say about us? We were clinging to a one goal lead in a great, tight, hard fought game. If that's sucking then we're only slightly better then sucking?
That chant should have been cheering our team on to a strong finish, not trying to ridicule an opposing team imo. "Oilers suck" only provides motivation for the other team, while doing nothing to motivate our team. If anything it would make the players less motivated to see our fans showing a lack of respect, even to a heated rival.
Thats one thing I've always hated about canuck fans, instead of cheering on our own team we seem to hate on the other team. If I were on the ice in a tight game I would get much more pumped up hearing 16000-18000 people chanting for my team then I would to hear "____ suck!" Besides that, the timing was ridiculous! moments after we get a 1 goal lead in a great, hard fought game, with 9 min left to go in the third. it would have been all too easy to blow that lead, and then what, do we start the "Canucks suck" chant? Or is that when we Boo Luongo again? bah
anyways, just had to get that rant out of my system. other then that, it was one of my favorite games of the season!
