Well, I'm just sick about losing another game 7, but I can't help but be happy for the Bruins. They were counted out by pretty much everyone - The media, the oddsmakers, the pundits - everyone but themselves. As hard as it was to lose, I still smiled pretty big watching Zdeno, Timmy and Milan hoisting the cup. Not so much Marchand, as he really got under my skin - but hey, I guess it means he did his job well.
But today was Boston's day - and their fans too know what it means to go to the finals and come up short. So good for them.
For the Canucks - It simply doesn't feel like the end for me. '94 did, because I didn't have a lot of faith that they'd get right back to another deep run.
But not this team - I know it's hard to be positive when you still have bile in your throat, but I can't help but feel really good about this year's team for giving it their all - (I don't think anyone can say they didn't play their hearts out) and I have a sneakin' suspicion that we'll see them go the distance sooner than later.
I also hope that the folks in Vancouver can relax not have anything that approaches the riots of '94. We only need to emulate the example of the team and be good sports.
Great year everyone.
