Gamethread: Canucks vs Vegas Western Conference Semi-Final Game 5

Canucks still playing hockey in September...let’s keep it going.

This one time, when I had less wrinkles and was less cynical, the Canucks came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat Calgary. So can be done, but it’s going to be really hard to beat a team like Vegas. The Canucks had their opportunities last game to get more goals, but just didn’t. You can call it bad luck....lack of skill.....angry Gods, but in the end the Golden Knights found a way to score.

It would be nice to get one more win out of this team. It would be nice to see Toffoli in a Canucks jersey for a couple more games. The same might be said of Jake. I would love for him to get goal #20. It might even get him a couple more years in Vancouver.

I’m going to sit back tonight and watch some hockey. Let’s enjoy this game, no matter the outcome. Because if you were like me, I didn’t expect this team to make the playoffs.

I also didn’t expect this,

Go Canucks Go!
