LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: SIGN OF THE TIMES

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:01 pm

Not sure what message a fan from Terrace is trying to deliver in a corner of the lower bowl at GM Place. A large, beach towel-sized sign reads "Luongo for President."
President of what?
Unfortunately, this is a constitutional monarchy, not a republic.
Or, is he suggesting Chris Zimmerman step aside?
Whatever, Luongo doesn't deserve a promotion after the first goal of the game.

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: IS HIS FIRST NAME COSMO?

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:12 pm

Evidently, the Canucks' mascot Fin has no first name.
He is here with his significant other -- wife? girlfriend? sister? -- who also has FIN on her Canucks' jersey.
What's her first name?
What's his first name?

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: LUONGO-A-GO-GO?

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:22 pm

Roberto Luongo has allowed two goals on nine shots during a game in which he has had little work against the notorious "Mild." I'd say he's a nominee for early departure if Minnesota gets a 3-0 lead in this period.

Almost.


PP with 6 min's left in the 2nd...if the Canucks score...maybe stay awake....if not....goodnight

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: BACKSTROM TO THE FUTURE?

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:58 pm

Two goals allowed in 16 seconds by Niklas Backstrom to allow the Canucks a lead turns the focus away from Roberto Luongo's earlier soft goals.
Shall we see Josh Harding make an appearance sooner than later?

LIVE FROM THE PRESS BOX: BRAD YES, BURROWS NO

Postby B. Mackin » Thu Feb 14, 2008 10:01 pm

Brad Isbister gets the goal originally credited to Alexandre Burrows. Burrows now has an assist where there once was none.
