Canucks - Blackhawks Game 5 Game Thread

Someone had mentioned that the Canucks are undefeated when I post a Metallica photoshop image on a game thread. Well let's put that to the test, shall we?

Metallica has been my favorite band since 1989. Growing up in a christian home I was sheltered from the secular music scene, especially heavy metal, the devil's music. I went to a christian school from grades 1-8, and switched to the public school for grade 9.

One day I was sitting next to a guy in English 9 class who was wearing a walkman. I could hear the speed of the music coming out of his earphones. I nudged him and asked him what he was listening to. Without saying a word, he took off his earphones and put them over my ears. The song playing was "Blackened" by Metallica.

The rest is history. I fell in love with thrash metal at that moment and never looked back, even though I was told I was going to hell for listening to it. I even bought an electric guitar and have been playing it ever since.

Master of Puppets is regarded as one of the best and most influential thrash albums of all time. I believe Slayer's Reign in Blood is #1. (Guitar World)

Back to the Canucks-Hawks. This game is so crucial. We cannot go back to Chicago down 3-2. Forget about it. Hopefully the Canucks play like they KNOW they can't do that. I can't believe that the Canucks have scored the first goal in every game of this series and have failed so miserably to shut Chicago down in the process. Enough is enough!

Make some noise!
