That's a much nicer story then the one with Messier, Bure and the hot tub.
Never heard that one, but I don't think I want to.

I had stopped in at a Brown's for a beer and some dinner to watch the game, and when Vegas made it 4-1 after the 'Nucks bumbled yet another defensive zone possession (this time puck into the stands while killing a PP), I went to pay for my meal, and all of a sudden the comeback was on. In the time it took to pay my bill they scored two goals, and then I was vested. The twins had a few nostalgic shifts, but they were missing the team around them that could properly support the movement. Puck would go back to the point, and Del Zotto or Poulliat or some plug defensemen would bumble it, and kill the attack. It was frustrating, because they had an excellent 3rd. And Gallat can suck a bag of dicks for challenging that goal. Sure it was a cnut hair offside, but they were up 4-1 at that point and the twins had just recorded 1st and second assists on a rookie's 1st goal.

Glad I stuck around to see the end, though.

Another awesome 3rd period onwards.

JV18 is going to be a rockstar here in Vancouver as long as he curbs living like one :)

The wife and I made a date out of it, went to the GLC and had to convince them to take ski videos off the big screen and put some hockey on. By the end, everyone in the place was engaged in the game. What an ending. Literally could not have written it better, and the stats showed if Danny was anything, he was a killer in OT. Who gives a shite about shootouts, this guy has been shoving the dagger into the opposition his whole career.

Yeah Regs, JV was something else in the 3rd- again. And you know, I haven't been watching all year, he looks way trimmer in his face, Green says he's been working hard and earning his minutes.

The night was perfect, fcuk me I'm going to miss these guys.

Agreed, Tuesday was well worth attending as well. Lost my mind on the Vegas challenge. Kid's 1st NHL goal assisted by both Sedins in one of their final games with Vegas up comfortably and having already clinched their division and no chance to catch Nashville for the conference top spot. I get that you play to win every night, but my fcuk how do you take that irreplaceable memory away? Terrible sportsmanship IMO. I compared it to Zlatan's winner the other day. Not going to get into whether Ibra's was or was not offside, we are all sure about our own interpretations, but the point is you WANT those goals to count, same with this one. It is what makes sports so fantastic.

Fair play in the shootout as well. They are garbage at that skills contest but it was what the people wanted to see and was a nice moment. Last night was great and to get that storybook ending was beyond perfect...though I could do without all the numerology BS about the timing of the goals etc., but that's just me, to each their own I guess.

I too noticed Virtanen in these last few games and, suddenly, he looks like a kid who could be a devastating power forward in this league. It is his speed that has impressed me most, he's just accelerating past defenders seemingly effortlessly. Hopefully that continues into next season and beyond, because not having the Sedin's will be a massive hole to fill. The one thing that I hope the kids all took away from these couple games is how engaged the crowd can be here, but you have got to earn it. Say what you want about the Vancouver market, but we don't just blindly follow our sports teams. Maybe we should, but we don't, you have to make it worth our while. However, if you can flip that switch, the energy is palpable and there is no question that the building spurred those third period comebacks with all the guys on the bench feeding off the crowd. It was great being in the building on Tuesday and watching last night, it felt like the old days. I hope that's what Danny and Hank said in the room to the kids afterwards, remember this crowd and what it has the potential to be, it's on you guys to get back to this level.

The Usher said to me he hasn't heard the crowd like that in a long time and I thought to myself how right he was.

Agreed - God I miss those consecutive sold out nights where the rink was just buzzin like that.

We're a fickle fan base but man we can light it up when we want to when the product is superior.
