You've seen all of this before.
With the Canucks rolling along, netting wins and goals in different ways, they run face first into a team that is one of the worst in the league. Seriously. The elites of the league lick their lips when it comes to stomping a mudhole through a weaker opponent. The Canucks? In more than a few games already this season, they greet the occasion by laying over and playing dead.
And with that we delightfully seek inspiration from the Cobra Kai because if there's any group of ruthless, unethical "go for the jugular" pop culture references, they're as good as they come. Sweep the leg isn't just fun to say, it's not just a declaration of win at all costs and it's not just a hilarious video, it's a simple truth. No excuses, get the job done and throw caution out the window.
Of course, the Cobra Kai inevitably lose but that's Hollywood. And if you have seen this then you know Hollywood is shit and out of ideas. It doesn't dilute the message though: "Strike first, strike hard, no mercy." Hell yeah.
Here's your game thread folks. Dive in and get dirty.
