Canucks and Beyond
On Tuesday night, Dev won the “prize” for the best freaked-out comment from the game thread. His prize/penance was to write Canucks’ fans a few words of encouragement as Vancouver faces Anaheim in tonight’s must-win game. Good sport that he is, Dev dug deep and found inspiration for us by flashing back to the past, to predict the future.
I’ll put up some game notes later, but I loved Dev’s contribution to start the day.

Ok…so I’ve started drinking early in preparation for tonight’s game. And I still find words that restore my faith in the hockey gods hard to find….so instead, I’ll just write the result of game 7 on May 8th and maybe some special voodoo will make it a reality.
Pre-Series Notes: Intro to 'Disney Gone Bad' C&B Game #1 Notes: Optimism and Reality The following post was contributed by Canucks fan and Vancouver-to-Los Angeles transplant Jeff Z. Jeff and his wife endured the game in Anaheim in person last night, and he was kind enough to write his thoughts about both the game and his experience in "enemy" territory. Not a fun assignment after that nightmare, I'm sure, but an awesome job.
This piece is written by Canucks fan and season ticket holder, Trini Day. At my request, Trini was nice enough to offer some words about her recent road trip to San Jose where she got to enjoy the Canucks beating the Sharks in overtime, all while surrounded by 17,000 unhappy Shark fans. She also includes a pile of great photos (just click on images to enlarge) and 6 handy "rules" at the end for all fans lucky enough to experience a game in enemy territory. Enjoy!
