Score notwithstanding, this game was almost enough to turn me off of NHL hockey for good. I might have got more pleasure from punching myself in the junk a couple of times than watching this game.
The officiating was horrawful, as usual. I was actually surprised the Canucks actually got a call. I think it's official - the refs union has issued a fatwa against AV and the boys, undoubtedly with the league's tacit approval.
Having said that, the Canucks were painful to watch for the most part. Almost all of them played like their mojo was sucked out of them a-la 'Space Jam'. Even Tanev was looking bad out there at times - nd he was arguably the best of the bunch.
The only guys who showed any jam were Kassian and Booth, but they had no puck-luck whatsoever.
That soaking stink around the team these days isn't coming from the bed-wetters, but from the Hockey Gods playing golden water sports on the whole organization.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.
Hate the League. Live from Riga, bitches...
