You’d think winning 4-0—especially after coming off a cold streak like the Canucks have been going through—would be uber-gratifying. But watching them smoke a team playing as self-destructively as the Kings were last night, I was a bit underwhelmed.
Still, congrats to Roberto Luongo for the shutout, to Taylor Pyatt for looking more like a hockey player again the last couple games, and to the Sedins who are finally out of their black hole. (More on the game at Canuck Nation.)
But while the Canucks held their own on the ice, their fans took a beating from the LA Kings mascot and his giant bag of popcorn last night.
Puck Daddy speculates that the scene may or may not have been staged, but frankly, who cares. Dumping popcorn on a bunch of self-important visiting fans in your building is just good karma. Especially when that visiting team is kicking your ass. (Might as well have some fun.)
In fact I’d even take it a step further… when Oilers fans invade your arena, feel free to shower them in 7-Up.
