I think the 2 girls 1 Cup reaction video (note: if you don't know that NSFW video, I ain't explaining it but tread EVER so carefully if you go a'googling) is a perfect analogy to Vancouver's last game, especially the third period where they coughed up the lead to the this season's most laughable team. I did everything that woman did except yell at Jackie.

Much lauded before the season as elites-to-be, neither the Kings or Canucks started that well. Neither team can score but both are top three for most stingiest in goals against per game. The Kings can't score on the PP, but have a decent PK; the Canucks are the exact opposite. You'd think the Kesler line is overdue - as are Bieksa and Edler at the rate they're shooting - but the growing pains from Burrows' absence are taking longer to work out. They started off well in Anaheim, but couldn't execute. If they start burying their chances all will be well. If not we'll have to look towards something other than Steve Bernier's ghost for all the blown scoring chances.

Go Canucks.
