What? Back to back games? I'm trying to party here. Damn. This is going to be a great tilt. The Sharks are no doubt angry and out for revenge after we spanked their asses in the Western

Conference Final. Yay, so be it. They have a 4 game winning streak going into this game..whoopee. The Canucks have won 3 straight and their 2nd line: the American Express line..is looking like something decent..finally.

 

The Canucks have finally gotten their 5 on 5 play in order but strangely, their PP has gone to the shits. It's not even strange. The Sedins pass too often on the PP and that was their "undoing" against the Coyotes despite the win. That will change.

If it DOESN'T...the Sharks will display why over-passing is pathetic. Don't get me wrong. I'm not being a party pooper because I love this 3-game winning streak that the Canucks are on. But they are really gonna have to bring their A-game against the Sharks....in the Shark tank.

-Is Mason Raymond ready to play? I don't know.I don't even care. If Line 2 plays the same way as they did against the Coyotes..well....Raymond WHO is all I have to say about that.

Yeah..suck it, Sharks fans:

Fuck the American broadcasters are dumb.

GO CANUCKS GO!
