Jeff (of Wednesday night) used to have a dog named “Lew.” But things changed a while back as Lew turned into Lew-ongo. I think Lew-ongo is the perfect mascot for this place. (Thanks Jeff!)
Update #3 - End of 2nd Period
This running of Luongo is getting out of hand. I’m all for gamesmanship and pushing the limits, but this is way too obvious and Anaheim penalties aren’t stopping it. And to make it worse, watching Luongo this period, I’m half-convinced he got injured from one of those runs. His movements across the crease aren’t normal. Just my impression.
Otherwise, I’ve got not complaints about the way Vancouver is playing. And a big “wow” to Morrison’s and Naslund’s game. Third period should be scary/fun.
Update #4 - During 3rd Period
From the Yankee Canuck’s liveblog, the quote I wish I’d thought of first: “Hey BURKE! Luongo is not Italian for “fuc#ing slam into me whenever the hell you want”.”
Update #5 - End of 3rd Period
This is what we wanted. Not OT, but a tied game at worst, and low scoring.
But now it’s not “scary/fun”... now it’s just plain scary.
Update #6 - 2nd OT
Well, thank you sweet geezus! Jeff Cowan is the man. I believe bras must start coming off now…! :)
P.S. Almost forgot: does this make Cowan the X-factor for this Anaheim series? He’s gotten 2 out of the 3 goals we’ve scored. Some goalies fear Sedins… J.S. Giguere fears THE COWMAN!
Update #7 - Press Conference
Listened to part of Vigneault’s press conference after the game online on CBC (before it got cut off) and he said that Willie Mitchell’s only problem was a bad skate. Then joked it was “a skate with flu-like symptoms.” (Smart ass.)
Good news, anyway. God forbid any more blueliners—especially THAT one—go down to injury.
