A Bit of Karma

CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 19: Roberto Luongo #1 of the Vancouver Canucks dives to make a save against Jonathan Toews #19 of the Chicago Blackhawks in Game Four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at the United Center on April 19, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois.

Okay, I think I owe an apology.  After the thrill of getting a 3-0 lead in the series, I was one of many Canucks fans who went overboard with calling the sweep before the game started.  As we were all reminded, karma is a fickle peach, and we all paid bitterly last night.
As for the game itself, that obviously didn't turn out right.  We all know that teams on the brink of elimination are hungrier for the win to extend the series.  Hell, we just did that 2 years in a row.  This time around, however, it was the Blackhawks who brought in that hunger to extend the series, and the Canucks just weren't up for it last night.  Let's just get back to Vancouver and finish off this series.  Oh wait, I have to work during tomorrow night's game.  FFFFUUUUUUUU-
