I was at Rogers Arena last night, and the tension was extra high after those losses in Boston, but there was a lot of positivity in the air.
I got on HNIC with the Odds and Paul Rodgers from Free singing "All Right Now". Steve Nash got the fans all hyped up being there cheering the boys on as well with his GF, and the minute the house feed panned on Trevor Linden the place exploded in appreciation! Good vibes indeed.
When I went on the Bill Good show on Thursday, he said that both Katie and I seemed very positive about a turnaround here in Vancouver, I said Luongo is going to have one of his best games in the playoffs and he shut out the Bruins. The biggest difference was, the Canucks out-hit the Bruins 47-27 and kept the B's off their game. Now if the Canucks can just pull the trigger on Thomas and get some past him, they've got the cup.
Spoke with a friend of mine from Malmo, Sweden and he watched the game, nervous as hell until Lapierre scored. He said right then and there, I think it's enough for the win. He was right!
For some reason, I have feeling they will do it in Boston, not 100%, but I might not have to use my Game 7 tickets at Rogers Arena. I'm hoping, but I am so glad I have been able to witness the home games in person this year, and the atmosphere here in Vancouver is awesome. As vocal as the Bruins' fans are seeming, the Canucks fans have giving Canucks nation a culture here in Vancouver.
