Holy smokes, that was heart attack mania last night!!!  As we all realize, the Canucks should have won it.  Maybe we would have, if a couple things didn't happen.  The most significant problem last night was Cory Schneider's 2 attempts at puck-handling behind the net.  Both times, the puck was in the net before he was back in position with full composure.  That penalty shot ended up gruesomely in two ways, with both the puck in the net and Cory's leg cramping up.  I felt that Roberto Luongo actually did quite well, coming in to replace Schneids, and his D should have helped a little better when Ben Smith put in that rebound in OT.  So, now we face a Game 7 against the Blackhawks.  The way I see it is that we can definitely pull this off.  Game 6 did go very well for the team, and if they can keep mistakes to a minimum, then we may get to see Patrick Kane on a golf course for the beginning of May.
