Somebody mistook him for Tony Gallagher, and he came to his senses...

One time I was flipping between Sportsnet and Fox and mistook Mr Burns for Tony Gallager.

Such a warrior! What heart! Beastmode!!!

Please.

I would give him the benefit of the doubt if something similar didn't happen on virtually every shift.

Wasn't the crosscheck directed right at his throat? That's a pretty tough area. You know, that thing you use to breathe.

Indeed. He's lucky to be alive. Good thing he recovered in time for the powerplay.

No kidding. That was just embarrassing, especially with Bieksa's comments about the Sharks. Kesler is right there with Couture and Thornton - I guess Bieksa gives him a pass because he's not Canadian...

Bash the Sedins all you want - they take tons more abuse than Kesler does and they don't embellish much or whine about it. Sure, there may have been a couple of times in the past few years, but you could say that about anyone in the league.

When I play and I get a high stick to the face, my first instinct is to get back and help my team, not drop to my knees and writhe around the ice clutching my face. Yeah, it hurts a bit but I've had far worse.

Kesler is either a diver or a pansy. Since he's played through several rather serious injuries, I know the answer.

I suspect this has something to do with it. He's been a step behind Henrik for most of the year. There's no telling how much or how long a concussion will affect a player's performance. Bergeron missed a ton of time and still played for over a year before he started to look like his old self again.

Daniel is also old and didn't play during the lockout.

Naslund 2.0?

Everyone knows it's not officially over until the fat lady sings. Unfortunately for the Canucks, the fat lady already sung, it's just that no one on this team bothered to show up and actually hear her.

No....it is over. At best, they'll win a couple of games at this point. Anyone who's watched this team this year without homer glasses will tell you that they're toast at this point. That being said, as fans we'll still all be cheering hard and holding that one small glimmer of hope for an epic comeback.

Indeed, this team looks to the refs far too much. Hopefully the upcoming coaching change will fix that.

Welp. Guess I was drunkenly wrong.
Not a penalty in an OT elimination game.
Enjoy your summer folks.

Unfortunate way to lose. Never like seeing any series decided on a powerplay. But at least the played with some purpose tonight. Deserved the win, but not to be in 2013. Look forward to training camp this fall!
