Canucks Tighten The Noose
Joyce Avenue in Powell River, normally a pretty busy street, sits quiet because the Canucks are playing game four in San Jose and everyone is in front of their TV’s. Except me for a brief moment. I’m out taking the picture.
Three straight 5 on 3 goals by Vancouver in the second period. How often have you seen that? And all three came from faceoffs won and bam…in the net. If I was Sharks coach Todd McLellan, I’d be pouring myself a good stiff drink after the game. Five on three’s are never good, but three in a row is just inviting the other team to put the game out of reach.
San Jose did take it to the Canucks late in the game but it was way too late. The Sharks scored their second, and try as they may, it ended as a 4-2 game and Vancouver is now about to put this series away.
It’s a three games to one lead for the Canucks, and if was a betting man, I wouldn’t be betting on San Jose.
Vancouver’s Green Men become a big thing and wouldn’t you know it, San Jose fans show up in orange body suits and try to do the same type of thing. It just seems lame when it’s not original. Think up your own act, Sharks people.
