Losing To Chicago Still On Bieksa’s Mind

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

Kevin Bieksa said he believes the Vancouver Canucks deserved a better fate in the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past two seasons.

Back-to-back six-game losses in the Western Conference semifinals, courtesy the Chicago Blackhawks, will do that to one’s psyche. While the results haven’t sat well with the defenseman, Bieksa also feels lessons learned in those losses only will strengthen the group in its pursuit of the big trophy this season.

“Losing when you think you deserve better is a tough thing,” Bieksa told NHL.com.

First it’s Baby Louie crying when he gives up 5 goals on 23 shots over the last 2 periods of game 6 at home in Vancouver.  Now it’s Bieksa 8 months later saying they should have won.  Hey Kevin, maybe you shouldn’t have been on the ice when Chicago scored 9 different times in that series.  Get over it.  Yeah, you guys shoulda won, and that’s why you’ll crap your pants when given the chance in the playoffs.
