Raffi Torres scored with 19 seconds left in the third period, the Vancouver Canucks take game one over the Bruins, and Don Cherry said it was the worst game he’s ever seen in a Stanley Cup final.
Canucks win 1-0, only three more to go now, and I didn’t think it was as bad as Don said. Not even close. There were heart-stopping plays throughout, Tim Thomas and Roberto Luongo were sensational, and I don’t see the problem. The main thing is, Boston lost, which is probably why Don was so grumpy.
And as much as I disagree with Cherry’s assessment of the game, I also disagree with Glenn Healy, who said the Sedins played a strong game tonight. I thought the twins were a bit out of sync, their passes didn’t seem to click as usual, and although they played better than most, they didn’t play as well as they can.
But, if Don Cherry and Glenn Healy both say the opposite, then I must be wrong.
Next game, Saturday at 5 pacific. I’ve decided I want to see a sweep.
