Wonderful ice surface they had tonight. I don’t think the puck ever stopped bouncing in the second and third periods. No flow, no offensive builds; just a lot of whiffing, overskating, and good ol’ pratfalls.

If the NHL wants to have hockey in the south, they’ve got to find ways to preserve the ice in late spring. This game was a lousy advertisement for a great game.

Thanks, Osr(t). smile

And jvwalt: I’m sorry, but any game (or, god forbid, ‘series’) the Canucks actually win, is a great advertisement for hockey. (And for the prospect of peace on earth, for that matter.  It covers every contingency!)
