The Canucks are in the playoffs!
The stars are aligned. Montreal and Calgary staged the Olympics in 1976 and 1988 and then respectively won the Stanley Cup the following years. So it only stands to reason that Vancouver will follow in 2011, right?
The road to the Stanley Cup is a long journey filled with potholes but we know we’ll be there after last nights 3-2 win in OT against the Calgary Flames. It also secured the Art Ross Trophy for Daniel Sedin and the Jennings Trophy for Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider.
But the Canucks must wait until later today to see who they'll face in the opening round. Right now, it could be Los Angeles, Anaheim, Chicago or Dallas finishing as the eighth seed.
Was there any doubt we would in the playoffs? Nah, don’t think so. Our team has had a great season, amazing really! We are an amazing team! My fav. hockey playing male twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin have made the game so exciting for me. (I say male twins because my own fav. hockey playing twins are female)
Daniel and Henrik know where each other is going to be at all times and their timing with the puck is second to none. I havent been this excited since Pavel Bure, the Russian rocket was on our team and I named my cat after him.
The 6 month grind is over. We’re in the playoffs!
